Notes from a Country Kitchen

This is our invitation for us cousins that I talked about last week, up to my sister Dolly's in Goodhue.

Chocolate is a vegetable!

Chocolate is derived from cocoa beans. Beans = vegetables. Sugar is derived from either sugar cane or sugar beets. Both are plants, which places them in the vegetable category thus, chocolate is a vegetable.

Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want. If you get melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.

The problem: How to get two pounds of chocolate home from the store in a hot car.

The solution: Eat it in the parking lot.

Diet Tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It'll take the edge off your appetite, and you'll eat less chocolate.

Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives keep you looking younger.

Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done .

A nice box of chocolate can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Now isn't that handy?

If not for chocolate, there would be no need for control top pantyhose, an entire garment industry would be devastated. You can't let that happen, can you?

Remember! Stressed spelled backward is desserts.

Today I may have a little chocolate after all it is Sept. 16 and it's my birthday. Doesn't time fly, guess I'm another day older again.

An elderly man finally decided to get a hearing aid. Some time later, he stopped at the store where he'd bought it. The beaming manager greeted him and said, "your relatives must be happy that your hearing is so much better".

"Oh, I ain't told 'em that yet." the old timer chuckled. "I've just been sitting around the house listening, you know, I've heard enough to change my will twice already."

People cannot change the truth, but the truth can change people.

A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.

Happiness isn't found in searching for it, it comes quietly while we are helping others.

Temperament is what you are born with. Character is what you make of it.

You never get a second chance to make a good first impression.

Your life is in the hands of any fool who can make .....
