Bacon Chocolate and a Man-Date
Not so long ago my husband and his Runnin’ Buddy ran off to Ft. Worth under the guise of getting ingredients for a crab boil to have a special dinner for the four of us.
Runnin’ Buddy’s wife and I are always jealous when our hubbies take off like this because they have wonderful “Man-Dates.” They go eat at nice restaurants, (Reata) go shopping and usually end the “Date” with a trip to the foo-foo grocery store, Central Market.
We are all foodies—Runnin’ Buddy’s wife even went to culinary school – she’s a chef! So for us, Central Market is good times. My hubby and Runnin’ Buddy come home from their Man-Date with a truck load of crab and other sundries.
As parting gifts they brought us Bacon Chocolate Bars. Very interesting mix of sweet and salty. Not sure I want to eat it every time I need a sweet fix, but it’s very good. My favorite chocolate is Scharffen Berger. That is happiness in a wrapper.
Anyway …After they gave us chocolate, they told us of how the Central Market Foodie was handing out chocolate samples and took a shine to them. According to the husbands, the CM Foodie gave them about $45 each in chocolate samples. After they left the area she, then had the audacity to track them down a few aisles over and give them more chocolate.
Many other [female] shoppers were left standing in the aisles wondering where they got the samples.Apparently the Foodie wasn’t as generous to the ladies shopping for their households in the middle of the day as she was of the dudes on the Man-Date.
In all my single years, I don’t think I’ve ever had as good a time on a date as these two did on their Man-Date.
