Denied



I am denied once again my favourite Easter activity of walking to the chocolatier to lust after the chocolate creations like the one above before persuading my beloved to fork over fistfulls of euros so I can take a bite out the pralines inside until I find the one I like (caramel).
Yes, it's a disgusting habit but I can justify it because I have diabetes. Yes, honestly I can, at least to myself. And I don't spit out those I dislike in public. The truth is, I am extremely fussy about my chocolate and I crave the stuff I like, anything else just isn't worth it.
So this year I bought myself a rhododendron and then I planted it in the front yard. Very grown up of me, I think.



Unfortunately, it's done nothing for the chocolate craving.

You are so funny. I think planting things in the yard is grownup too :)

There are chocolate scented geraniums that might help with the chocolate craving (maybe).

I hope you get your chocolate fix soon. No one should ever be denied their chocolate!

Edible chocolate scented geraniums?

Shannon said...

Sorry, just scented. Maybe they're edible, I'll have to look it up on the internet.

It's probably not a patch on the place you posted (and oh my GOD, I'd have a hard time restraining myself in that place), but see if you can find any Lake Champlain chocolate. They make big bars and small ones, called Five Star Bars, that are out of this world good. They sell them at Whole Foods, if you have one of those near you.

Just doing my part to help a fellow addict....

They sell Lake Champlain in Wholefoods near me but no, it's not a patch on Belgian chocolates, way too sweet. The 365 own brand milk chocolate is cheaper and purer but it's not an egg or a bunny. Plus it's the whole Easter Egg window display I miss.
Oh well, maybe next year.

Did I mention I was fussy?
