My New Obsession

I decided I had better post NOW, before the day gets ahead of me, and well, I get busy doing other things. Life is like that. It seriously gets in the way of my computer surfing time!!! Right now, Mark is shaking his head thinking I am on the computer ENOUGH!!) Ha ha!!!

I thought this would be a good time to introduce you all to my new obsession. Aztec Chocolate.

It all started, innocently enough with a sweet Valentine box of chocolate. I will admit, I am a chocolate snob. Sorry Hershey's...it is gross and waxy. Only if I am D-E-S-P-E-R-A-T-E will I eat it. Quality is better than quantity when it comes to chocolate, but unfortunately that is not my philosophy when it comes to things like potato chips!! But that is beside the point. This box came from Lake Champlain Chocolates and is some of the BEST I have ever had. As I was looking at the website, I thought the logo looked "familiar". Where had I seen the candy locally??? Duh, Whole Foods!!! Well, come to find out they make an "Aztec" chocolate bar. It has dark chocolate, cinnamon and CAYENNE PEPPER. What? Pepper?? No seriously it is SO GOOD!! At first, all you taste is the chocolate and them BAM, the hotness hits you like a brick. OK, it is only tasty to those of us who find spice and caliente heat delicious. This chocolate is addicting. And the best part, you can only eat a wee bit at a time, so it is good for the diet!!! :)

OK, I have to run to the market to pick up some ingredients for tonight's dinner. I found this terrific blog with vegetarian recipes and I am going to try one out tonight!!! All her meals look so tasty!!! I will let you know how it turns out!!!
