According to our local produce expert Ana Crespillo, along with many fruits and vegetables, chocolate is good for keeping things moving after surgery. San Geraldo had already loaded me up with chocolates (he’s so good to me), so he brought home dates and figs from Ana.
San Geraldo has been showing superb self-control when it comes to the chocolates. But he clearly can’t help himself when it comes to the dates. Each date is topped with a walnut. San Geraldo abhors walnuts. So, every time I decide to help myself to a date-walnut combo, I find less dates and more walnuts in the package. But that’s OK; I just get back in bed with my bon-bons.
