An After School Snack

Yesterday I came home from work feeling exhausted and wanted to put up my feet. I made myself a cup of coffee, grabbed my latest read, and took two rusks from the box I had bought over the weekend at the South African store. It has been a while since I have eaten this treat from my homeland and I have been enjoying its crunchy taste since Sunday.

I eat the rusks in the true South African way – by dunking them into my hot coffee. Delicious! The treat and the silent time revived me and I felt the energy needed to go and cut the vegetables for dinner. Eating the rusks brought back the tastes of home and certainly made me smile. I look forward to enjoying the rest of them in the upcoming week.

What do you do to relax when you get home from work?

  1. Well, I’m retired, so there’s no ‘coming home from work’ for me. But on the other hand there always seems to be work to do that is never ending around here! So, to relax when I’m not doing something I should be doing I like to read with my feet up too. And I like to munch on something crunchy. I have never had your treat, but maybe someday I will try it!
