Black Jelly Beans and Tulips
You either love them (because you love licorice) or you turn away from them like the plague.....black jelly beans. These beans can be found by the bag only around Easter in the candy aisle of the drugstore. I haven't ever seen other flavors singled out and packaged like this before. If there were, I'd definitely buy a bag of the purples (my favorite). Black beans are low on my list but my Mom and my husband love them. I bought a bag along with some sweet stuff I like last week. The bag of black beans and a fresh bunch of colorful tulips will be my Easter gift to Mom and Dad later today. That and the visit, which they'll appreciate even more I suspect.
I won't see Mom and Dad on Easter Day. Unlike last year when we had a big family gathering to commemorate Easter as well as their wedding anniversary, this year Denny and I are driving to Gig Harbor to share a meal with Heather and Chris. I hope my visit, the black beans and the flowers are "enough" for Mom and Dad this year. It'll have to do.....
Happy Easter everyone!
