I think it was our friends Paul and Ali Federwitz who first introduced us to "The 7:31 Concept". I'm sure most families do it, but perhaps you give it another name.
Our children go to bed at 7:30 pm.
And at 7:31 pm, the "good" food comes out.
Maybe it's a packet of chips, or maybe it's chocolate.
We have an entire cupboard called "The 7:31 Cupboard". If I buy a special treat at the supermarket, I'll say to Craig, "Let's not share it with the kids. We'll save it for 7:31."
With my mother's visit from Australia, our 7:31 stash is chockablock full. My sisters sent a range of sweet things to tempt our taste buds. (Thank you! Thank you!)
However, these are by far my favourite.
Lindt Peanut Butter Chocolate Easter Eggs. (Yes, you may applaud.)
The Lindt website instructs the connoisseur to "Savour the delicate balance between the intense richness of peanut butter and the smooth melting milk chocolate. When it comes together on the tongue in perfect harmony it’s a sensorial triumph."
I don't need the fancy description. To me they are just plain scrumptious. Peanut butter and chocolate are the BEST combination ever, as I'm sure Amanda would agree.
I'm logging off now to enjoy my 7:31. What are you having?
