What greeted me upon opening the front door this morning…. Over two feet of snow, and my husband is outside with the snowblower while I sit inside, post photographs and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate.
I must give a should out to the two treats that have become my new favorites.
The second item – just in time for Valentine’s Day! – is Hershey’s Kisses filled with Cherry Cordial Creme. I’ve always love cherry cordial candies, but I’ve never been particularly fond of the chewy, kind of stale tasting fruit in the middle. It’s instead been more about the gooey sweet syrup and how it transports me back to childhood. These candies are simply divine – no pesky cherry to deal with, simply the runny, almost fondant-like pink syrup inside a candy almost universally beloved. The first bag I brought home disappeared inside 48 hours – a record for me, as I’m well known among my family and confidantes for my ability to pick up one oven-warm Toll House cookie, eat it, and simply not eat another. That might not sound like a big deal, but among foodies like my family and friends, that’s a pretty big accomplishment.
I am not what anyone would call a great photographer, but I wanted to post some photos from the aftermath of the Northeast Blizzard of 2013 that has pummeled the northeastern US over the last 36 hours.
Now to head out and rescue my child from the 4 foot snow drifts created by my husband snow blowing for the last 3 hours ….
