So, to answer the chocolate bit from two weeks ago, yeah, Chocolate is chocolate and it is all good. However, my favorite is dark. A really good combo is about a 66% cocoa with a Diet Coke. There is just something about the combo that makes me smile and puts me in my happy place in seconds. That said, one BIG NO NO in my mind is mixing chocolate and fruit. That is a major taboo. Seriously, those chocolate oranges (Blah!) or those orange or raspberry sticks (Double Blah!) who ever "invented" those ought to be shot. I will say that occasionally white chocolate and fruit can be mixed, but not the brown stuff, no way, don't mess with a good thing. Our ward gets the women Chocolate covered strawberries for Mother's day and it is always a disappointment. It is the one time I am happy to share it with the fam. Mint, caramel and toffee, are good chocolate additives. My favorite additive to chocolate though hands down would be peanut butter. Do you remember those commercials way back when about how a guy would be eating some chocolate and it happened to drop into some peanut butter? I don't know how it really came about, but I bless the day that it did. I'm just sayin'.
So, what does this new week bring? What is your favorite thing to eat at Thanksgiving?
Oh, and a side note about the picture below. Yes, that is a dead fish, and those are tears in Melissa's eyes. We have several pictures of her with things she's had to get rid of. For example, when we got a new car, we have a picture of her hugging the old one. Or a picture of her with some artwork from school that I was making her throw out. Or the time she cried forever because she was going to put her tooth under her pillow, but just couldn't bring herself to do it because the tooth fairy takes them. Do you know that she has only ever done it once. That's right, she sacrificed getting money so that she wouldn't have to give up her tooth. She's probably got ten teeth in her jewelry box. Oh, and for you who say that she could just write the tooth fairy a note and ask for her tooth to be left, forget it. The tooth fairy does not condone saving teeth! If she wants the tooth, then no money. I'm just sayin'.
