I'll Eat Just A Few...


I went to Trader Joe's last week and filled a gift bag
with chocolate treats for The Mister's birthday.
These Chocolate Coconut Almonds were one of the
choices...something I'd pick for myself...lol.
Well, I was hungry this afternoon and they
were calling my name from the pantry.
Someone please take these away from me!
I can't stop....I've tried....it's hopeless!
Do you think he'll notice they're almost gone?

  1. I'm sorry, but I can be of no help. I'm a hide-the-chocolate-from-everyone-else eater. Unless you want to mail me the leftovers. Then you can tell the Mister that you donated to a worthy cause.

      Betsy.....step away from the delicious chocolate, coconut almonds!

  2. lol nice to gift yourself a treat
    They'll only last as long as there are some to eat
    Then there will be no need to hide
    After the tummy ride

    1. I like the way you think.
      although I would grow and not shrink.
      But once they are all gone
      there will be none to see the Betsy Song.
      haha....

  3. Chocolate and coconut - a stellar combination.
    Maybe you can plead temporary insanity!

    1. I'm making him a delicious dinner that will hopefully fill him up so
      full he won't even think of nibbling on chocolate tonight. haha....

  4. And there I was feeling all guilty that I had had a Great British Breakfast . . . lol . . . so funny. They do look exceptionally moorish . .
    Love the way you said, "They were calling your name!"
    I like Laurie's suggestion. . I have another . . . Pay another visit to Joe's and get some more and then you can finish the remainder of the first batch and perhaps some of the second . . . . and while you are at it get some for me . . . lol
    Have you eaten any other part of his edible birthday presents? . . . rofl

    1. haha...well, in my defense, I had only eaten a yogurt today!
      I haven't eaten anything else that was part of his gift.....and I can pass
      on all the rest...but the coconut was just too much to resist!

  6. Lol...I feel your pain ;)
    I bought a bag of Rowntree's wine gums at the imported section of our Publix today. I was going to ration them out, a few each night...
    I threw the bag away at dusk....empty.
    *sigh*

  7. I'm afraid he might notice! You'll just have to get another package for him and eat the rest!

    1. You know what...he didn't notice! He got in them tonight and went back for more...and then said, "These chocolate coconut
      almonds are addicting!" lol.....

  8. Did you wait until you got home to sneak a few...I could see you in Trader Joe's like Lucy in that chocolate routine of hers.... HaHaHa...You are funny. Thanks for the mental picture, and the belly laugh.

    1. haha...Oh, yes..this was today and he had already been eating them. And he didn't notice....ate some tonight and commented how they were addicting. I think he thought he'd eaten my portion, too! lol.... That episode of Ethel and Lucy in the candy factory is probably my all time favorite...hilarious!

  9. Those sound really great. I feel your pain. I did up a batch of caramel corn today and I ate way too much. If it is in the house I will eat it.Sometimes we gals just have to have chocolate.

  10. A day of reckoning is fast approaching! Eating all the Mister's chocolate almonds... and they were his BIRTHDAY gift, at that!! Yes, indeed. There will definitely be an explanation to be done.... and don't blame it on the cats!

  12. Ooops, he will surely see that some are missing. Maybe an elf came in your house last night and ate some, would The Mister believe that?
