Dulce de Leche

Hidden
in a corner
of the freezer
w-a-y back
behind
the green beans
and chicken breasts
covered
in a thin layer
of frost
the kind you scratch
with your fingernail
draw hearts
or XOXO
...because it’s mine!
...and I can’t wait!
until Sunday
to eat ice cream again.

LOL, seems it is not so well hidden that you don't know exactly where it is....just waiting for you. (I did not officially give anything up, but I was just saying to someone yesterday that I haven't eaten ice cream in ages! So I guess I could claim that I did...)

Dulce de leche...I'm drooling reading this. Very nicely written, and apparently very well hidden if the family has not found your secret stash!
