It's been awhile since I posted about one of our fabulous national holidays. Today is a good one because it's Chocolate Covered Raisin Day! Okay, so you either love these or you hate them. None of my kids like raisins, so this is one treat I don't have to share. Then again, it's not like I have to share my chocolate treats with my kids much -- they don't like chocolate with ginger, chili, raisins, or especially 88% cocoa. I'm pretty much safe when it comes to hoarding the good stuff for myself. It's not like they're deprived, so don't start feeling sorry for them. Chocolate Covered Raisin Day sounds like a good holiday to me. I've always liked these, especially Raisinettes. Trader Joe's has really good chocolate covered raisins, in both milk and dark chocolate. Sadly, the closest TJs to me is 9 hours away, so I'll have to make due with something else. Whenever I think of raisins, I think of Garfield -- he hates raisins. He picks them out of his oatmeal cookies and puts them in the closet. Every now and then Jon opens the closet, only to be buried in raisins. I know -- it doesn't take much to entertain me these days. So, how about you -- do you like chocolate covered raisins?
