We were just enjoying a quiet afternoon when out of the blue we got a hankering for something chocolate-y. A quick rustle through the cupboard came up empty. And, the freezer held no left-over-from-summer chocolate dipped ice cream bars either.
So I grabbed a small handful of shelled pecans, thinking that might curb the urge, and returned to my lounging position in our sunny bedroom where I'd been reading A Light in the Window by Jan Karon.
You probably won't be surprised to learn that...no...the pecans in that unadorned state did not curb anything. You probably won't be surprised either to learn that we flung back the cozy cover, laid down the book, and went in search of the easy Hot Fudge Sauce recipe a friend gave me years ago.
Five or six minutes later I had vanilla yogurt ice cream scooped into a bowl... poured some hot fudge sauce over top... added a sprinkling of pecans... and grabbed a spoon. Ahhhhh... much better!
