Spicy Mango Slices dipped in Chocolate Fondue & Kneepads

Despite a wondrous eight inches of snow that fell, all the members my writing group were able to dash through the winter wonderland today - to meet, write, talk, and most importantly - to FEAST! One of my contributions was chocolate fondue with all the standard dippers - marshmallows, pretzels, strawberries, bananas, etc. But a chance contribution to the table, of Trader Joe's Spicy Mango Slices (dried mangos coated in chile powder) - led me to try something - and I discovered an orgasmic treat. Dripping chocolate, bite of hotness, sweet tropical chewiness. Oh my, and mimosas to go with! If one likes this sort of thing - spicy with sweet, do try it. 

We also did a writing exercise (unfortunately a couple of them had to leave beforehand) - each person wrote a line then passed the paper to the next person and they wrote a line off that one, then folded the paper to hide the previous line and passed it on till everyone had contributed a line. This was one of the results - we knew it was good when the person who started it laughed as she read the results - we couldn't wait to hear it. The wonderful women of this writing group gave me permission to post it here. I love them!

Cardinal sits on a snowbank
beads in hand mumbling to himself
he stoops to pray though entranced by her
takes communion then strategizes confession
gets her kneepads ready
