Decadence

17 05 2005

Subject line grab your attention? That’s what Nonnis calls its chocolate biscotti dipped in dark chocolate. People, you have no idea. I’m pretty sure this is what they’ll be serving in coffee shops in heaven.

Speaking of tasty treats, if you’ve never tried Plocky’s Three Grain Tortilla Chips, you really should. Think Sun Chips meets Tostitos. And they’re all natural, with no trans fat. (I can’t say the same for the Nonnis biscotti, but then what would you expect?) If you live in Podunkville like I do, you can’t find either of these items in a local store. I order them online.

And one more thing about food. Jesus did lots of cool things, but I think one of my favorites was when He raised a twelve-year-old girl from the dead. First, he told the crowd of mourners she was only asleep. They laughed at Him, but He didn’t care. He sent them away and took only her parents and His disciples into the room. So right there you know He wasn’t trying to put on a big show. Then He just took her by the hand and told her to get up. Which she, of course, did. And then comes my favorite part. He instructed them to give her something to eat. I LOVE THAT! Here’s an adolescent kid who has been sick for a long time and dead for part of a day. Chances are she’s hungry, right? “Wake up, honey. Somebody get this kid a hamburger, okay? Oh, and let’s just let this be our little secret. B-bye.”

That’s reason #459 why I like Jesus.

One last quick story, but not about food. This past Sunday, George made a short presentation about Compassion International at church. He and Jacob wore their official Compassion T-shirts they wear when they man lobby tables at concerts. Jacob didn’t speak, but he stood beside George on the platform. Every time he caught my eye, he grinned and waved. Not a little flick-o-the-wrist, but a lift-the-whole-arm-from-the-shoulder wave. I waved back. But mine were the flick-o-the-wrist variety.

If everyone were as innocent and free as Jacob, this world would be as delightful as chocolate-dipped chocolate biscotti. Heh. It comes back to food after all. 😛

Have a tasty day, cyberfriends.

True

. . . because he’s crusty and dark and a little nutty, but sweet. And he goes well with coffee.

Decadence

One Chocolate, the ultimate decadence, drooling as we speak.

Two If the Jacob’s of this world got to rule the world, what a great world it would be.

Ah, just kidding. But reading about chippy-non-trans-fatty-acid chips made me long for the US. Chips here are weird. I miss you, my friend, even more than I desperately miss a bag of sunchips.

I worked with a guy once who called donuts “rings of decadence.” Just thought you might want to use that one day.

If everyone were as innocent and free as Jacob, this world would be as delightful as chocolate-dipped chocolate biscotti.

True, true. Give that boy a hug from us, will you?

Here’s another aspect of decadence. I work across the street from the building here at K-State where they make the Ice Cream (from our own K-State cows. :). I capitalize it because this is real Ice Cream. Yummy. Some days we all have to run away across the street. 🙂

Dark chocolate is indeed drool-worthy. Napkin?

Don’t let me ruin your diet, Miles. It’s all about balance. Just enjoy your decadence in moderation. 😉

Re: please send snacks!

Funny thing is, I thought about ordering you a case of Plocky’s. But I didn’t know how they’d travel. I ordered a box containing twelve bags. They arrived undamaged, packed in styrofoam peanuts. But the Cote-d’Azur is a wee piece further down the road. However, if you think it’s worth a go, I’m your Plocky’s girl!

I miss you, too. Let’s have an imaginary date at a seaside cafe–your side of the ocean. Wine, cheese, and a big basket of Three Grain Tortilla Chips.

Be there at 7:09 sharp.

Hugs all around

Will do. And you hug the Supermodel fan club for me, okay? Also, show them a picture (8 x 10 glossy, please) and remind them who I am. I can’t bear the thought of my “true” identity being lost.

Re: decadence

Of course you have to run away to the K-State cows’ Ice Cream factory. Does anyone ever suggest otherwise?

I’d ask you to send a sample, but Texas isn’t exactly across the street. 😦

Re: decadence

Yes, I’m afraid Call Hall ice cream wouldn’t hold up real well — though do you remember the MASH episode where Hawkeye ordered ribs from Chicago? But if you’re ever in Manhattan (Kansas that is), come to Call Hall and get some fresh ice cream.
