Two Bite Tuesday ~ I'm Having an Affair and All That Glitters

I have a confession to make. It's been going on for years, decades really. This is really hard, but...okay...here it is. I'm in love. And you're probably thinking, You tramp, that's not love, that's lust. I'm sorry to say that this is real love, the kind of unconditional love that every woman yearns for, the kind that loves you back. The kind that makes you think of Paris in the spring; or summer, or fall, or winter for that matter.

First Bite ~ We met in the frozen dessert section of our local grocery store in...uhh...well, around 1992 and I never looked back.

Meet my love {Sorry Cheese Guy}
I love waking up with you ♥
It feels so good to get that out in the open. I feel like I can breathe again. And I hope this isn't too shocking, but I'm inviting him over for Thanksgiving. He will fit in just perfectly among the pumpkin and apple pies and Dad's pecan bars. Which brings me to my next sinful find.

Second Bite ~ You probably noticed that the little gems above are not homemade ~~~~ gasp! I don't care...I love them...and to dress them up and make them a bit more presentable for the holiday I discovered Edible Gold! Now, I wasn't raised in a cave somewhere. I knew it existed. I just didn't know it was affordable for a typical middle class woman like myself. I thought you could just get it in Steven Bruce's $25,000 Chocolate Sundae. But lo and behold...it's everywhere! Sur la table, Michael's, ABC Cake Decorating. and all over the internet! Wow Steve, you've got quite the gig there. I know, I'm sounding a little bit like Kelly Pickler here when she discovered that people ate lobster :-).

All I want is a Band of Gold
Can't you just picture them now though...lined up neatly in a row on white serving tray, glistening, beckoning...come bring me your sweetness {Those are lyrics from the song "With you I'm Born Again} I don't know why, but chocolate...and gold seem to elicit memories of old love songs. ~ Enjoy

Oh...and here's a pic of that pricey sundae ~ Just in case you didn't see it back in 2007. There are no words for the insanity. I'll take my $6.00 whole box of mini chocolate eclairs thank you. :-) and I'll top them with my own gold.
