You’d think I was raised in the Great Depression by looking at the contents of my stocking hung at the mantleĀ  at Christmas. All I got in my stocking were oranges and whole walnuts.

Someone must’ve known I needed Vitamin C and heart-health Omega-3 fatty acids back then.

Maybe it was to counter all the sweets I enjoyed at Christmastime:

  1. Divinity–the gooey white marshmallow-like candy
  2. Peanut brittle
  3. Cracking walnuts with a real nutcrackers and picks–ya really appreciate the nut when it takes like 5 minutes to eat just one.
  4. Ribbon candy–remember the gorgeous colors? And when your aunt said to take “just one,” you actually took like 7 because they all stuck together?

Enjoy the simple things this Holidays. And take time to crack some nuts…or crack your tooth on a piece of ribbon candy.
