Last night was the final night of a Bible study I was doing this summer. Â Our host asked if some of us could bring snacks for our final session since she was going to have a terribly busy day and no real time to get a snack organized. Â Well, I totally forgot…until it was time to leave. Â So I did what anyone would do in that situation. Â I ran in the grocery store on my way out and grabbed the first easy thing that crossed my line of sight. Â (I know, I know. Â I have just committed a cardinal foodie sin.)Â While racing through the grocery store at warped speed I came across these little beauties in the frozen section. (Sorry for the fuzzy pic.)
I had them a someone’s house earlier this summer, so I knew they were good. Â The directions on the back say “allow to thaw a room temperature for 30 minutes and serve.” Â I know they are yummy. Â Takes 30 min to thaw. Â Takes 30 min to get to my Bible study. Â SOLD!
We only ate about a third of them at Bible study because other snacks were also available, so I was able to surprise BG with leftovers of the decadent little treat once I got home. Â It’s a treat because we DO NOT keep stuff like this in our house. Â I had to be dramatic about the presence of such a treat, so when I arrived home I made him close his eyes and hold out his hand into which I placed a single Mini-Eclair. Â I prompted him to open his eyes. Â Upon recognizing the petite pastry his eyes widened and he popped it in his mouth and moaned in approving delight while he nearly swallowed it whole. Â This was followed by a hurried “Where did THAT come from?” Â I showed him the box, he immediately grabbed three more then looked at me very sternly and said “Take it away.” Ok… so downstairs I went and put the leftovers in the fridge.
I got home from work a little early today and after settling in went straight to the fridge to get myself a bite-sized bit of yumminess and THIS is what I found
He’s been on a conference call for the last hour and 15 min that I’ve been home so I haven’t been able to ask him about it. Â I’m guessing he was having a little trouble staying away today…
Yeah, I’d say so. Â The box was about half full when I put it away last night. Â (In the interest of full disclosure, I did eat two myself before I got the idea to take pics and make a post out of this little episode. And in HIS defense they are delicious and addictive.)
He’s still on the conference call. Â He’ll probably flip when he realizes that I posted this! Â It’s all in good fun, though. Â Right, babe?
