Hiya, I've just found that there's nothing like a little gastro-intestinal flu to keep your cravings down. Tonight, I'm looking forward to 7-Up and soda bread for dinner. All else is too scary for the moment.

But of course ...

It happens with the wine here. I've moved them to the hall closet, no luck though.

Thinking of moving the wine to the medicine cabinet ... for my health and all that.

Tiramisu is the best! But all the Tiramisu I found in the US sucks, so the food that call my name is chocolate. Dark chocolate calls me the loudest.

I knew from the "open-a dis-uh refridgeratorrrr-uh doorr-uh!" that was tiramisu. I recognized the voice :-)

This has to be an inherited trait Tracie. I hear those voices all of the time. I just wish it was one single dessert. I seem to get regular calls from chips, sodas, Blue Bell, cake, pie, cookies, Etc.... Sometimes it sounds like a choir, especially when that light goes on in the fridge. Oh well I guess that is why they invented the Racketball Courts.

Looks like you better get used to the voices. They never go away.

Love ya, Dad

Pat, Blue Bell is an ice cream made in central Texas. Some of the best in the west. One of my loudest voices calling from the fridge.
