Last month I found out that my Grandma in Oklahoma was near death. As quickly as I could, I hopped on a plane and traveled home to be with my family. It was a long trip and I barley ate anything that day.
Sitting in the waiting room of the hospital that day, my family offered me some food that someone gave them. Quickly, I eyed a can of mixed nuts. I have a radar for nuts. This time, however, it dawned on me that I would not see any nut allergic people (Tyler and my husband) for 3 days.
Could nut residue last that long?
I knew it would be silly to think that what I ate that day could have any affect on people in Michigan! (I was in Oklahoma remember!)
So I laughed and took a few nuts. Some family members knew of my problem with nuts. Others had not seen me since Tyler's birth and had no clue.
As I ate those nuts I realized I had forgotten just how good they were! So I ate more. And more. And even more!
They were so good!
By the end of that day, everyone knew my story about nuts. It became a family joke: Pass the nuts to Robyn!
And, boy, did they ever!
I ate so many nut products I'm pretty sure I gained 10 pounds in 3 days!
Here is what I ate...and enjoyed every bite!
*Nutter butter cookies (one of my former favorite cookies. Yummy!!)
*Chocolate covered peanuts
Here is a picture of me with several of the nut products I ate. Included in the picture are the family nuts: my dad and uncle!
OK, 'fess up. Who else has done this sort of thing!
