National Peanut Day & International Chocolate Day Falls on September 13th…This is one fo those dates, when the selected foods of the day actually go quite well together – who doesn’t love Reeces peanut butter cups? – Well actually the ex hubby doesn’t – but that’s not relevent, just like him…

But when I would go out to grocery shop, knowing he couldnt stand peanut butter cups, I would throw a couple into my mouth, just chewing them till they melted, come into the home with open hands, asking for kisses as he would always give me kisses back – he got slam-tricked everytime with the taste of peanut butter cups in his mouth… hehehe…little naughty chef maven was I….the current man in my life doesn’t like rootbeer – what a shame…more for me then!
