I am trying to control myself and not stress eat! Johnnycakes and I are having a string of bad luck. His car was stolen two weeks ago and we finally got it back two days ago (minus a car stereo but with minimal damage). Then, today we were getting ready to leave for three days at the beach and swing into a service station for a quick oil change and the mechanic breaks my car! It's not that simple but let's just say we're not going to the beach tonight and maybe not at all this weekend. I'm feeling like we've stepped into some bad cosmic energy.
I quit smoking a while back but I used to turn to cigarettes in stressful situations. Since that's not an option anymore I am thinking about junk food to comfort myself. Luckily, I haven't actually shoved anything in my face yet but it's tempting. I'm kind of thinking about McDonald's french fries and ice cream. I am going to try to control myself and not stuff food in my mouth. Do others stress eat? What do you eat? What do you do to quell cravings?
Sorry about no photos!

I never realized how many varieties of Kisses there were until I went into the legendary Chocolate World. Being from Baltimore, I’ve been to the park many times since it is only about an hour and a half away from Baltimore. Somehow, I never made it to Chocolate World which includes a tour ride of how Hershey Chocolate is produced, a 3-D movie, small food vendors and huge gift shops. I was super excited to experience this illusive (at least for me!) portion of park and enjoyed the free sample of Kissables as the end of the tour. The gift shops had just about every type of Hershey kiss imaginable including dark chocolate, cherry cordial, chocolate truffle, caramel, swirl, nut lovers and the list goes on….
It’s amazing how many sweet products the company makes in addition to the Hershey Bar including Icebreakers, Bubble Yum, Reeses, York Peppermint Patties, Twizzlers and Jolly Ranchers.
On a side note, we didn’t eat too shabbily at the park either. We were very impressed by a stand out barbecue stand by the Trail Blazer roller coaster which sold delicious pit beef sandwiches. I topped mine with plenty of barbecue sauce and fried onions. I even sampled a bit of horseradish. Johnnycakes had a barbecue chicken leg quarter which was fabulous and flavorful. The coleslaw was some of the best I’ve had all summer! It’s hard to believe we found this delicious food at an amusement park. You just have to search it out and bypass all the typical hot dog and chicken finger stands.
I would highly recommend a trip to this super sweet destination if you can steal away for a day. In fact, the park has expanded so much since I was a kid, I would recommend two days instead. If you are a chocolate lover, this is the place for you!

One of the best things about summertime is undoubtedly the cookouts and barbecues. We certainly enjoyed ourselves yesterday at our neighbors house where the hospitality was unmatched. I wish I had taken more photos to demonstrate the spoils of our labor in the form of glorious food plates and leftovers but I didn't.

Now we just have to get back on our weekly Sunday evening visits to the grocery store or committ to online shopping so we don't end up in this situation again.

Today was a great day! Not only did I attend my best friend's bridal shower, but it was held at great friend's excellent restaurant, the Laurrapin Grille (http://www.stjohngourmet.com/) in Havre de Grace, MD. I highly recommend trying this restaurant if you are in the Havre de Grace area and want to try some unique and tasty cuisine in a cool setting.
As I said before, today was an exceptional day. It was a significant and memorable day for my best friend as she approaches her wedding day and more selfishly because of all the good grub!
