I hate chocolate I think.....


today I went to my girlfriend's house
where she was hosting
a
"recipe club"
~~~~~
STOP LAUGHING
those of you know who know me
~
and
just so everyone else can be in on the laughing
I don't like recipes
or baking
or even cooking
for that matter
~~~~~
but
she's my girlfriend
and
the "food" for
this month
was chocolate
YES
chocolate
and
since the only reason I really leave my house for any length of time in the winter
is with my camera in hopes
of gathering fabulous pictures to play with
I said
"sure"
"I'd love to come"
and
of course I'd bring a yummy chocolate dessert
~~~~~
well
guess what
?
when 18 women show up with 18 chocolate desserts
at 1:00 on a 10 degree day
in the dead of wisconsin's winter
~
well let's just say
I won't need
"a chocolate anything"
for maybe the rest of my life
or
at least until saturday

  6. Hey Beth, in my twenties just for fun I entered the cooking contests at the State Fair of Texas, as I was living in North Dallas at the time and I thought why not. Actually won some ribbons -- a blue, a red, and two whites. Although I do go through periods where creative cooking is appealing, most of the time I'm a popcorn and yogurt kind of woman. When I'm in "most of the time" mode, I always laugh and say that I only cook competitively. I can say for sure that none of my prize winning recipes involved chocolate.

  7. I know heaven is supposed to have streets paved with gold, but I think there will definitely be chocolate. Don't you?

  8. So, oh mighty chef, what yummy chocolate dessert did YOU show up with? (Did you make my recipe in the Gypsy a few days ago?!!!)

  9. Okay - I can see from just these few posts on this page, that we are indeed editing junky sisters (not to mention this post that involves chocolate!).

    The first step to recovery is acknowledging we have problems. Don't ya just love it though?

    One of my closest friends is a SOOC junky, but I love her anyway! I think I'll send her over, we happen to share a brain! I think she'll like your sense of humor too!

    Thanks for visiting me :)

    Where I live, we have a yearly event called Chocolate Fest...for an entire weekend you can go and indulge in all kinds of chocolate goodies. But you know...I have lived in this city for over 8 years now, and I have never gone!!!And I love my chocolate.
    I must make it a priority this year I'm thinkin.
    ;)

    Awww, just had famous amos chocolate chip cookie in my office and wondered how could anyone hate chocolate or even choc chip! And then i googled "how could anyone hate chocolate" and found your blogpost. No plssss! You cannot equate hate and chocolate!! Chocolate is the best flavour in this world to go with desserts, muffins or cookies. =D
