I celebrated Holy Week in Spain last year,
while I was walking the Camino
and the whole concept of Holy Week
has been changed forever.
As I was re-reading my blog posts from that time,
I was reminded that on Maundy Thursday last year,
I had a vivid drug induced dream
in which I was served chocolate covered olives
by Debbie Reynolds.
(I didn't take drugs often on the Camino -
besides Ibuprofen which everyone took so often
it was simply considered 'Vitamin I'),
but the 3 times I did take something for overwhelming pain,
it was very effective!
I can totally seee why people get hooked!
Anyway, I continued to be intrigued
by the idea of olives,
coated with chocolate...
you know where this is going, right?
Let me just say,
If I decide to go into the business of creating
handcrafted chocolate olives,
( and look for them to come to a dinner party near you soon!)
I will obviously take more care during the process
so that presentation is more appealing.
But the taste?!
It doesn't get better!
Debbie really knew what she was doing!
I admit it was a slippery slope...
other chocolate made its way into the house this weekend too.
Come on -
you know the ears are the best part!
Now if only I could get back into the Camino routine of walking 15 miles every day,
maybe I could eat chocolate every day again!
One food group, however, is on its way out...
Peep season is over for 2015.
There are still 'models' waiting in the wings -
well, the freezer -
in case inspiration strikes before next Lent,
but this is the last 'official' Peep Show for this year.
Hope you're having a Holy Easter -
with just the right amount of sweetness!
