As you can see, I've been lazy and haven't felt like updating much as of late. Perhaps it is because I have been stuck under piles of piles of snow, then slipping on ice, then stuck knee deep in slush, only to have that all freeze again.
Also, slush? It actually falls from the sky here...it isn't just that cold mess that makes your feet numb and wet. It gets you from all angles.
Which brings me to this: An open letter to Mother Nature. The author is clearly based in Ottawa. It is like he is inside my head. It really is quite remarkable just how crappy the weather is. You don't even feel lame for talking about the weather anymore...
To take my mind off the weather, I decided to try out a twist on a very easy treat: link. I had made them as per the "recipe" before, but lately I've had a few different versions of chocolate covered caramel covered pretzels (delicious). So I thought to myself "maybe i can kick those hershey hug bites up a notch". So, I used the caramel kisses. Unfortunately, they don't look quite as pretty because they make a bit more of a mess...and you have to be quite gentle so that the caramel doesn't run everywhere. But what they lack in beauty, they make up for in pure deliciousness. The perfect amount of salt, sweet, caramel and crunch. You should really try them out. And they really are easy. The hardest part is unwrapping the kisses...so how easy is that?
And for something completely different, a little story about asparagus pee. I'd say "come on...you all know what I'm talking about". But according to the article, you don't all know what I'm talking about.
