I learned how to make peanut butter cups when I was 15, by following a recipe I heard on some TV show. I came up with the peanut butter coated chocolate dipped pretzel rods when I was 19. And possibly high.
Now I have kids. And what better to feed them but chocolate everything.
After 20 kids at our birthday party had at this cake, what was left was sad, expensive carnage: peanut butter cups with half a bite in them and pretzels that had been licked twice and tossed…I tried not to take it personally. Instead I told myself that ruined their appetites on all the carrots, radishes and home made hummus I had out. I don’t know what I’m trying to communicate here, other than kids: you can eat your vegetables AND have your cake too.
