Hiding under thorny layers.
Do you remember Ding Dongs?
In Canada, they are called King Dons. Not to be confused, however, with Don King.
Maybe you've had one recently, but I haven't eaten one in decades. I loved those things. I could hear a choir of angels whenever I spied the shimmery, silver wrapper at the bottom of my lunchbox. I'd gingerly peel back the silver, careful to keep it intact so that I could later smooth out the square of foil with the back of my fingernail. Then, I'd nibble off the thin layer of chocolate before finally biting into the chocolate cake with creamy white filling. Mmmmmmm.
It appears that whatever is hiding within the artichoke loves Ding Dongs, too.
Oh! Guess what we are having for dinner tonight? No, not Ding Dongs, silly. Artichokes! Yum!
Have a fantastic week!
