Poor Mister has some kind of stomach bug. Initially, he was trying to blame it on my Jambalaya, but I assured him that the stuff that tasted like seitan really was seitan and not some tempeh dressed up for Halloween. As a result of his Angry Belly, he had no interest in whatever scrumptious feast I was gearing up to make...so I pulled my tall, narrow Tupperware out of the fridge and ceremoniously dumped some of my mom's stew into a pot to warm up. I thought it deserved a prettier presentation than the glamour shot in plasticware, so here it is, all ready to be eaten:
|look how pretty your stew is, Mom!|
I almost did my chocolate round up, but I don't have enough "testing" done yet. Don't worry - chocolate (and red wine) is my comfort food and the stress is being kicked up into high gear at work, so I should be ready soon! I was ready to make my own chocolate sandwich treats by 1:30 this afternoon, so I'm pretty darn proud that I lasted until dessert time.
- when I opened the wrapper, I was greeted by a small square picture of a bug with bug trivia on the back. I'm not a big bug fan, but it was a clever idea.
- the texture is so smooth it was hard for me to believe it wasn't made with cream or milkfat, but it's not.
- one .35 oz square is the perfect size to satiate my craving for dark, bittersweet chocolate, and only sets me back 50 calories, 4 g fat, and 2.25 g sugar. I may need to buy these in bulk! They are the perfect replacement for my Ghirardelli addiction and [ironically] might just get me through the prep for Diet Season!
