Ya know how my mom sends me packages in the mail with food? Yeah, she’s awesome. (Another reason she’s awesome: she ran a half marathon last weekend and took 2nd in her division! Go Mom!) Anyway, today, I got my Easter basket! Thanks Mom! That’s right. DARK Cadbury Mini Eggs.She also included some version of Ferrero that I have never seen before: Ferrero Rondnoir. Holy crap. Run — don’t walk, don’t drive — to the store and buy these. You’ll need to burn the calories running because you’ll want to eat mass quantities of these. My mom also included this note: To which I respond: Mom, do you know me at all???
And you’re all thinking, what are almondettes? These, my friends, are almondettes.But it just looks like a ball of chopped almonds? Oh, but wait… open it up…NOUGAT!! I love these things. Always have. Every year growing up, I would try (usually successfully) to find my mom’s stash before Easter and sneak some away. As far as I know, you can only get them in Utah from this candy & chocolate shop. I think all of my brothers love these…but I’m pretty sure all of their spouses hate them. So maybe it’s a nostalgia thing? Or maybe all my sister-in-laws have really bad taste. It’s possible; they did marry my brothers. 😉 j/k Love my bros!
nom nom nom. almondette….in.my.mouth. Mom, honestly, you think these will last long enough to need to be frozen? Come on now.
Maizey wanted in on the action. Hey mom – what was on the table? None of your business puppy! You’re allergic anyway! (look at her little tongue in the bottom left picture. heheh.)
So are you wondering how all of this led to a Facebook fail? I was just so excited that I thought I’d log into Facebook for the first time in weeks and actually update my status. I did it quickly since I needed to head back to work. I got home tonight and had a slew of comments mocking my status. This is what it said:
TERI loves the Easter basket my mom failed me!
