Sweet Revenge

When I have more on my 'to do' list than I seem to accomplish I eat chocolate.
Cake, chocolate bars, chocolate digestive biscuits, I'm not picky, I scoff the lot.
I put it down to desperation, and all those years of being around 'sweets' in a bakery, right there at my fingertips for the taking.
Old habits are hard to break.

I just made a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting for my boys. I'm endlessly astounded that there is more sugar than flour in my recipe, 2 cups in the cake and 3 cups in the frosting. They love it!

I am pretty fond of chocolate myself! I am not supposed to eat it, must be the devil making me do it.

I just love that little picture. I would have that up and framed in my kitchen. Chocolate cake is a big favorite in our family especially my husband. It always had to be chocolate cake on birthdays. Chocolate should be eaten every day. I have a piece of chocolate after dinner every night, just one.I think it is good for the heart. That's my story and I am stickin' to it. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x5

I LOVE chocolate. I might treat myself to some when I get home tonight, since it will be six weeks that I've been dieting. There is nothing like it.

Louise said...

Funny, I attribute my chocolate mania to the fact that I was never allowed to have any when I was growing up. It was "bad for you."

Lots of love,

There's a reason that the Aztecs called it food of the gods.

I was looking at all the pretty photos you have of Britain and the icing on my chocolate cake was when I saw the hovis advert drat I must be homesick blubbing over an advert

I'm hearing you on this one Jo! I always thought chocolate was one of the major food groups! I adore chocolate in any shape or form.

Star said...

I love chocolate too Jo but it has to be Cadbury's, Galaxy or Lindt. I also like Aero bars and Thorntons. My mouth is watering now.
So glad Oliver is better ((Oliver)).

And with Easter just around the corner, those Chocolate Cadbury Eggs are calling my name.. I cannot say no to Chocolate EGGS!

Tess said...

Well, I admit to being a chocoholic. As a matter of fact, it is a staple on our grocery list!! My husband has brought me chocolate when he visits England and I am crazy for Flake!!

Just yesterday, one of the women at work was selling chocolate for her daughter's school. Sooooo, I ended up with four chocolate bars!!

I had a real good wake up call about chocolate when I discovered it was one of the food triggers for my migraines! Seldom eat chocolate anymore!
