The weekend, however, was great in terms of weather. There were a few minor events, among them a date night with my husband...ewwww...still so strange to say husband. On Saturday we went downtown to have dinner at Hapa Sushi Grill on Pearl Street. Afterwards we walked on Pearl and shared a piece of banana bread at a coffee shop for dessert. One of the highlights of the evening was discovering a new store on Pearl Street. It's called Rocket Fizz,
and it's an actual candy shop! While there used to be a candy shop on Pearl Street, it closed down about a year ago and left a real dearth of candy options in town.
I'd say I eat candy approximately five times per year, but despite that ex-anorexic bullshit I really really love looking at candy shops. Especially when they're like Rocket Fizz and have lots of candy that is from foreign countries or the olden days. For example, here are a few highlights.
These two are British, I believe.
And these three are just plain weird/interesting:
Does anyone else like to personify cinnamon and gummy bears, just because they kinda do seem like little creatures? Or at least like they should be real little creatures?
I guess I shouldn't be throwing stones and little gummy creatures, however, since my eats today have been just about as random as chocolate-covered gummy bears. They include:
|And no, I didn't eat all that salt.|
And acorn squash:
|David doesn't like stuff when it's even slight burnt, so I pulled the burnt parts off his half and stuck them on mine.|
Real nutritional powerhouse day, I tell you.
*What about you? Did you eat much nutritional powerhouse stuff today?
