Giveitatry has assigned us this task:I want to know what your favorite treat is. Is it sweet or sour? Is it plain or salty? Is it candy or chocolate? Is it homemade or store bought? For instance, if your favorite is chocolate, tell us what kind specifically – sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes not so much. I have heard a lot of talk about Junior Mints, but is it your favorite or just a tasty treat? It can be anything, popcorn, peanuts, ice cream or chips, maybe you have more than one favorite – that is ok, just show us your favorite(s) and tell us why you like it so much. C’mon, what gets you all juiced up? So, here is my rendition: The Love Affair Fingers reaching, Grasping, Pulling you closer. My tongue running across my lips in Anticipation of your salty loveliness. We’ve shared this dance for so long. It haunts me often. And, like those dances we shared when first we met, I dip you. Deeply, smoothly, and creamily. Finally the moment I’ve awaited arrives. My lips part and… CRUNCH… Crunch, crunch, crunch. Mmmmmmmm.
And so goes the reason why I have a weight problem. It’s not just a snack. It’s love. 😉 Potato chips and I became fast friends back when I was a child. I used to sit on the couch with my mom watching Three’s Company, Murder She Wrote or other such television classics and we’d munch away on chips. Mom and I bonded and so too did I bond with the salty crunchy yummyness. Soon, I was introduced to the wonders of dill pickle dip, which was a quickly cemented relationship as well. I do enjoy several other varieties of potato chips, of course, but as far as comfort food goes nothing beats plain ripple chips with dill pickle dip.
PS I was just reading Irreverent Mama’s blog, and she reminded me of Miss Vicky’s chips. I must include these. I always loved Sea Salt and Malt Vinegar, but was recently introduced to Lime and Black Pepper. Yummmm. 🙂
