Which was exactly the case today. I am still playing catch-up from being away and real...

Speaking of chocolate, feast your eyes on these beauties...

Rich Chocolates makes candies that will make you jump for joy, swoon with delight, then fall over from pure exhaustion. They are that good.

The top photo is a sneak peak at a product that Chewing the Cud will be...
