I have been busy and have not kept up with the weekly theme, but today I have time to write one.
What was your favorite childhood candy or dessert? Have your tastes changed since then? What satisfies your sweet tooth today?
I love sweets! It is all my Mom's fault. I take no credit for my sweet tooth. A meal is not complete without desert especially after lunch and dinner.
My Mom packed a candy bar in each lunch bag on school days. It was usually a Snickers or a Milky Way. I sure did enjoy them.
For dinner desert we usually had ice cream. We didn't eat it right after dinner we usually ate it a little later. We liked any favor. If we only had vanilla ice cream some times we would mix Sanka instant coffee into to it or added a spoonful of peanut butter on the side. Of course Hersey's chocolate syrup was always a good add on.
Sometimes for snacks my Mom would give us a sugar sandwich, you got it white bread, butter and sugar. I never gave my kids one of these and we sure liked them but I won't eat all those empty calories now. If we couldn't sleep she made us hot milk with vanilla and sugar. Sometimes she even made us a little egg nog, on the spot, milk, egg, vanilla and sugar, but this was cold milk.
My Dad worked in a Farm Store when we first moved to Florida. They were a little drive up store that sold milk, eggs, bread, ice cream, cottage cheese. He use to bring ice cream home from the farm store, it was a good quality of ice cream. I won't tell you how many times when I had kids at home and need milk or bread on the way home from work, that I wished there was a drive through Farm Store to go to.
Now a days I like dark chocolate, milk chocolate is bland. Since I was a young adult I would rather eat the Nestle's Semi-Sweet chips out of the bag then eat the cookies. I have a bag of these in my draw at work, but don't tell anyone.
I still want a small piece after lunch, the bite size or a couple of kisses instead of a full bar. I still love ice cream after dinner but don't eat it. Well at least not every day. I settle for a dark chocolate kiss instead. My husband & I love to stop at Dairy Queen on the weekends.
