It’s Treat Tuesday! What are you reading….I mean eating?!
Tuesday is now my favorite day of the week because I get to read….and eat candy! YUM! A huge thank you to Shannon Houghton for the new Treat Tuesday meme picture. Check out her fabulous blog Ms. Houghton’s Class.
Today is the official birth of Treat Tuesday! This meme idea started on Twitter (like all great ideas) when a bunch of Nerdy Book Club friends were talking about throwing a party. We wanted to all get together and read and talk about books….no surprise there. Then we started talking about all the treats and candy we would bring to the party. We realized that we all loved sweets and thought it be fun to blog about it. So Treat Tuesday was born! Now I have to eat candy every week and read a book. It is a tough job but somebody has to do it!
Sleep Like a Tiger by Mary Logue goes well with a Caramello candy bar.
I loved the picture book Sleep Like a Tiger. It is a really sweet book that would be perfect to read to your little one just before bed time. I also love candy bars! Caramello is one of my all time favorites. So good and gooey. Mmmm, chocolate!
All this talk about candy reminds me of my all time favorite movie when I was a child called Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The movie is based on the book by Roald Dahl. Now I am just plain creeped out by the new version of the movie with Johnny Depp. So I’m going to kick it old school and stick with a clip from the version with Gene Wilder. It is still a sweet classic in my book!
So what are some of your favorite sweets to eat while you are reading a book? I look forward to hearing your thoughts in the comments section. I hoping the New Year for you is filled with sweet treats in the form of many wonderful books to read!
