Snacks! Snacks! Snacks!

Yes, I need those exclamation points, just like I need those snacks.

We had a moment of what I kept calling "snack fatigue" over the weekend, except it was exactly the opposite, and I am clearly terrible at naming phenomena.

What I meant is that we were one week into The $34.27 Challenge and needing something sweet that wasn't going to mean spending money...and then we remembered.

We had maple syrup in the freezer.

Which means that I am - even now, at six in the morning - fighting the temptation to lock myself in the pantry and eat every single one of these babies:

Uh, oh yeah, Mr also made kettle corn. Also good.

Did I mention that I spent ten minutes painstakingly scraping out the maple candy pan so that not one scrap of maple deliciousness would go anywhere but in my mouth? 

I mean, only because I'm frugal, though. Right? It's not like I'm obsessed with maple candy or anything.
