Time to play…


Would-You-Eat-It-Wednesday?


 

Every week I search for unique, out of the ordinary, chocolate combinations. Your job, my trusted Chocolate Enthusiasts, is to decide if the chocolate pairing has potential for the palate, or if should it go straight to the trash can.

 

Now, for this week’s contestant…

We’re raising the bar for National Fudge Sundae Day.

 

There’s nothing wrong with the classic sundae you grew up with, complete with hot fudge and a cherry. But, if you really want to splurge, it’s time to explore some new mature flavor combinations… meaning, it’s time to upgrade your kiddie sundae.

 

Think of a scoop of ice cream as a blank canvas. 

Now, add a sprinkle of WHAM

A couple spoonfuls of POW. 

A dollop of BANG.

And suddenly you’ve discovered your new comfort food.

Confessions of a Chocoholic- at Work

19

If you’re anything like me, eating healthy can be a challenge. In this world, it seems like there are tasty morsels around every corner. 


Tempting us. 

Taunting us. 

And ready to lure us in.


You can’t turn on the television, drive down the road, read a magazine, or even go to work, without the temptation of delicious, not-so-nutritious foods, threatening your diet.    

And when chocolate is involved, all bets are off. 


But, not today. Today I’ve got things under control. I’m like a junk food ninja. Bring on the snacks, the baked goods, and those chocolate covered goodies.


Today is the day

 

Today, I’m going to eat healthier.

Twenty minutes into work, and all I’ve had is coffee and a piece of chewing gum. I’m unstoppable.

Unstoppable…Until I leave my desk. Traps everywhere.

 

Doughnuts in the break room. Maybe just one…

Minor set back.  I got this.

Secretary’s desk houses jars of candy. I’ll take one for the team.

Strategically placed vending machine en route to restrooms. 

Baited, hooked…and sunk.

A co-worker is celebrating with birthday cake.  Maybe I’ll have just a thin slice.

The office manager baked muffins. I don’t want to hurt her feelings.

The boss is selling cookies for his daughter. I need to be supportive.

Retirement Party.  Bring on the cake.

I’ve already blown today. I should probably go clean up the doughnuts in the break room.

Tomorrow. Tomorrow I will eat healthier.
