Guilty Pleasures

Jim and I just returned home from visiting family members in Spokane, Washington.

While I was there, daughter Linda offered me a chocolate eclair--creme on the inside, chocolate on the top, which I ate with gusto. I had not eaten one in years and had forgotten just how delicious they are.

On the trip back home, I ask Jim to stop at a large grocery store, so I could buy another eclair at their bakery. I sat in the passenger seat, eating it, while Jim, who doesn't care for alot of sugar, drove. Yum-eee! What a heavenly treat!!

Eclairs have become one of my new "guilty pleasure."

These are favourites of mine too. I love to eat them on Saturdays and they're not too hard to make either.
