chocolate covered cherries

i am an extreme procrastinator.
some of you would never know this about me.
and while the hope is that we all keep getting better and better with time,
this particular quality about me is actually getting worse as i grow older.

i've known my passport was going to expire for some time.
it's been on my radar for about 6 months, and every couple of weeks i think to myself
'oh yeah, i definitely gotta do that this week'
sure enough two weeks later... i have the same thought all over again.

well, i became almost panic stricken this week when i realized i am all out of weeks
and that if i wait 2 more weeks my passport will indeed be expired.

so, off i went to get a passport photo.

it's a funny thing getting a passport photo...
you don't want to look like you tried too hard.
i mean, i did just walk into a kinko's on my way to yoga. 
on the other hand, that photo is going to be in that little blue book for the next 10 years!

(i'm going to 38 years old in 10 years!)

anyway. i took a passport photo.
and it wasn't my best look.

but who knows, maybe i'll look back at that photo
and remember that i had just eaten some of
these awesome chocolate covered cherries :)

you never know :)

(inspiration & recipe via not without salt)

1 cup high quality white chocolate
(you could also use dark chocolate if you wanted) :)
1 vanilla bean, split with seeds scraped
2 handfuls of cherries

1. wash and dry all your cherries.

2. in a small bowl melt chopped chocolate in a microwave.

3. once melted, stir in vanilla seeds.

4. dip the cherries into the melted white chocolate.
place on a plate covered with wax paper and refrigerate until firm.

5. enjoy!
