Macadamia nuts

I believe I mentioned recently that I always feel like a nut. The nut I feel like is not usually a Macadamia, except once or twice a year when I get a care package from a friend of mine in Hawaiʻi (where most of the world’s Macadamia nuts are grown). And then I can’t stop eating them, especially if the package happened to contain chocolate-covered Macadamia nuts. Oh my. In any case, the Macadamia is a noble and delicious nut, and I hear they’re not at all fattening on September 4 since it’s National Macadamia Nut Day. So you can eat as many as you like, knowing that any weight you gain will be from other sources. Like the chocolate.
