I’m sharing my WIAW eats from my first Wednesday at work last week. It was a big change for me to be eating most, if not all, of my food for the day outside my house, or at least somebody’s house, because even during all my travels this summer I was usually staying with friends (and their kitchens) and was only in hotels for a few nights. If I learned anything, it’s that I need to start taking meal prepping seriously, and devote several hours on Sundays to ensuring that I’ve got my breakfasts, lunches, and even dinners – not to mention snacks – set up for the week ahead. Anyway, on to the food!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I’m checking in with my usual Monday recap of weekly workouts and updates. I’ll be honest, the past week I’ve been feeling pretty drained. Not physically, like I was the prior week, but mentally. Studying for the bar has gotten to the point where my mind is exhausted, and I feel like if I try to put any more information in one ear, something is going to spill out the other. Plus, I think the weird weather in Connecticut the past week got to me (we had bad humidity and rain for most of the week, although the weekend cleared up and as the sun came out so did my happy thoughts!) My attitude until then was similar to Sasha’s when it’s hot.
Shirley Temple might have been referring to an airplane when she sang about the Good Ship Lollipop, but to me the local (and locally renowned!) sweet shop in all its holiday glory is the real mothership of all that is good and chocolate.
It’s called Deborah Ann’s Sweet Shoppe, and they really get into the holiday spirit that I’ve waxed poetic about.
I’ve been known to have some candy cane ice cream in December just because, well…who could resist? (I’m also one of those crazies who drinks iced coffee when it’s below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, and considers it a bonus that the ice doesn’t melt!)
No matter the recipient’s mood or lifestyle, you’ll find something here that suits.
So now you know where to go to satisfy any craving for candy or chocolate! The best part – almost all the chocolates made on premises are gluten-free, as is the vast majority of the penny candy, and the owners and employees are super helpful about letting you know which treats are best if you have other allergies.
