My friend Cindy introduced Tom and I to an Australian treat called, “Tim Tams.” What is a Tim Tam you ask? Well it’s a chocolate coated biscuit with a chocolate cream center. The idea behind this biscuit is to take a little bite on each end and then dunk it into a hot liquid (coffee or for me hot chocolate is the best) and suck the hot liquid through the biscuit. Once the hot liquid touches your tongue and softens the biscuit you put the entire biscuit in your mouth. The act of putting the biscuit in your mouth is called a “slam,” hence it’s often referred to as having a “Tim Tam slam.” There is an explosion of chocolate goodness that is beyond words. Every chocolate lover should try this. Arnott’s are the makers of this heavenly delight. Besides the original flavor of chocolate, they also come in caramel and double chocolate.
The only place that sells them here in the U.S. is the World Market. There are 297 stores – click here to find one near you. Tom had a class to teach in Portland and stopped at the World Market and picked me up some of these treats. He is a great hubby. If you live near one of these stores, do yourself a flavor and buy some. (Yes I know I said flavor and not favor.) Remember don’t just eat them because it would be a waste. The fun part is using them as a straw. Invite some friends and let them join in on the fun. They will love you for it.
In other news, I get to go to Dallas next week with Tom. He is on the board of the church organization we belong to. The founder thought that the wives should come to the next meeting. I’m excited because I’ll probably go shopping with the other wives while the meetings are being held. This will be my first time in Dallas.
This Saturday we are going to see South Pacific up in Spokane (it was my birthday present from Tom). I’m very excited because we will also stop by to see our daughter who goes to school nearby.
Until next time have a great day.
