One of my favorite snacks it peanuts.
Salted and roasted.
There’s almost always peanuts in the house.
But my favorite are the bonus peanuts. Did you see them in the pictures above?
They are the ones that don’t have a shell.
No work to get to them. Don’t get me wrong, shelling the peanuts is half the fun of eating them.
But it’s always nice to find one that you can just pop in your mouth and munch on until you get the next shell open.
Sure, I could buy the ones in a jar without the shell.
But where’s the fun in that?
And they don’t taste the same.
The Captain and I cannot eat peanuts from the same pile.
He always steals the bonus peanuts before I can get to them.
Just like french fries.
When we were dating, he liked to dump both containers of fries out on the paper lined tray for us both to eat from.
It didn’t take me long to figure out he was getting ALL of his fries and half of mine.
I don’t think he realized he was eating his AND mine. And he couldn’t figure out why I suddenly refused to share the french fry tray.
Sometimes you just have to draw the line.
And demand your own peanut pile and french fry tray.
