Chocolate


This weekend the food network is having all these specials about chocolate. I was cutting out some bears with the tv on and watching a program about the Ghiardelli festival in San Fran. Suddenly my chocolate cravings were amped up 10 fold. The various stashes of chocolate(drawer in the fridge & decorative canisters in the dining room) did not satisfy the almost crippling cravings. The chocolate creations just kept on coming-truffles, mousse, cake, and fudge. There were eat offs of chocolate ice cream sundaes and chocolate pudding.

I decided what I wanted was brownies. Warm, gooey, chocolatey brownies! I picked up my purse and told Bill I'd be back in a few minutes. I headed for the Winn Dixie about a mile from home. Just as I parked the car the DJ on the radio mentions today is the anniversery of Hersheys. How fitting! Once I got inside I realized it was a really bad idea to go in with severe chocolate cravings. I strolled down the candy aisle then up the aisle with the cake mixes. By the time I reached the ice cream aisle I really needed a bucket for the drool that was forming in my mouth. It took all my willpower not to purchase that chocolate cheesecake in the frozen dessert section. I got my brownie mix and high tailed it out of there. Right now the glorious smell of brownies is filling my house. Bill says to me "I wish you looked at me the way you look at chocolate".

Mmm. Chocolate! Almost as sweet as you Nancy. That's why I gave you an "You Made My Day Award." You have to go to my website and read today's Blog entry to find out what it's all about!

Hugs!
