Hi All Y'all! what great Cadbury egg clips and photos! Cadbury eggs...YUM! Mini Cadbury eggs...awesome and Bliss chocolate...heaven! I'm drooling just thinking about all of it! Although nothing says, "Easter Candy," like a pair of chocolate bunny ears freshly bitten off!! Speaking of Easter candy, what are some other favorites that y'all like? Who knows...maybe this year mine will be the chocolate covered bacon!! I will have to see if I can conduct my choco-baco-latte experiment this weekend and report back. Have a top notch Thursday!

P.S. Claire...it was a great hockey game! Very exciting, although, I'm kinda sad that the Olympics aren't reserved for amateur athletes anymore. I think that would have made it all the more exciting. Also very cool your celebrity connection!

In the end what matters most is: How well did you live. How well did you love. How well did you learn to let go.

Enjoy your coffees everyone! I myself am not a coffee or latte drinker, but do enjoy coffee flavored items such as the Dannon coffee yogurt and of course coffee ice cream and shakes. Gee....haven't had those last 2 in a while, but that's okay.

Boring choice for chocolate today. I had the Quaker Quakes chocolate rice cakes. I'm not crazy about them, but had bought a few bags as they were on sale. I should have read the ingredients before, but didn't. I discovered they have sucralose. I try not to eat artificial sweeteners and knew there was something as soon as I tasted them. Oh well...I'll finish these up, but then probably won't buy them again.

More Cadbury Egg adventures for you!! Enjoy

Good evening everyone!!!

Okay....tried something new today.....well sort of....let's call it a new version of an old favorite.

I had a square of Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate with Caramel (found it in my mailbox at work today) sandwiched between 2 graham crackers and melted with a marshmallow inside. It was a different version of a S'more and it was soooo good! If you make this though, be careful as the caramel gets hot!

Okay....I'm on a Cadbury Egg obsession. Check this out!

I wanted to watch the game, but I was at hockey myself. I also had one errand to run before leaving town, so the game had ended by the time I got home.

I heard it was a good one though and it must have been very exciting. Hey....guess what? Here's an interesting fact: My neighbors down the street are related to Sidney Crosby and their last name is also Crosby. I think they are cousins from what my daughter told me. Pretty cool, huh!

Back to the emoticon and emoticon idea:
Okay Bella.....I think we should allow you to be the official guinea pig for this chocolate covered bacon idea as it sounds like you have the access that we don't. Remember, in the name of science!!! We can give this a new name.....the science of, of.....hmmmmm....bacochocolatte!!! Don't forget your hypothesis and a full lab report when the investigation is complete!

The Easter bunny arrived early at my house today as I had a Cadbury caramel egg. YUM!! Another one of my favorites! (Gee! I'm going to be like Oprah pretty soon and keep making my list of favorite things!) Fortunately or unfortunately, as this could be looked at in two ways, I have a discount store in town that carries these (and the creme variety) and they are 6 for $1.00. How cheap is that!!! I only bought one as I know that if I bought 6, I would have eaten them all at once! Well...not all at the same time in my mouth---gee that would be quite a sight wouldn't it? That's like the dog that puts the most tennis balls in his mouth except imagine them to be Cadbury eggs:

Hey all...Did anyone else catch the olympic hockey game between the US and Canada? Pretty exciting game even though US lost in overtime. I munched on chocolate cheerios during the game yesterday (not so great, not much taste, but a tad better snack than popcorn). Today, I needed a jump start so...I had a mocha swirl on the way to work--just takes the edge off!

As for the chocolate covered bacon, one of our local radio stations did a little taste test the other morning and were talking about it and made it sound so good. A local chocolate shop that is pushing it also has had several commercials on air as a result. I, too, am not a huge fan of bacon and thought about the calories and fat that must be in them, but...maybe it's turkey or tofu bacon???? Ha!

I'm also wondering, if it would satisfy that salty-sweet craving!!! However, I think I would quite possibly gag if it turned out to be the slightest bit waxy or lardy tasting. Alas, in the strict interest of science, I think I will have to make a point to try it!! emoticon

In the end what matters most is: How well did you live. How well did you love. How well did you learn to let go.

Okay, this chocolate covered bacon idea intrigued me a bit. I'm not sure that I'd love it as I'm not a huge bacon fan, but I think I'd try it. The salty/sweet combo could work just like chocolate covered potato chips! Check this out to make your own:
www.yumsugar.com/Homemade-Chocolate-
Co
vered-Bacon-1813878

If anyone decides to try it, please let us know!!

Chocolate meringue cookies are awesome!! I bought some before and they just melt in your mouth! I think I had bought some at the Christmas Tree Shop, but making your own is even better. How did they come out?

I've been having lots of the Lindt chocolate I bought over vacation in Freeport. I have been good, however, and keeping portions under control. I opted to have one of my stand-bys today: 2 squares of Hershey's extra dark chocolate between 2 graham crackers and melted with a marshmallow in the microwave. Yup! A yummy s'more!

Happy weekend to each of you and have a sunny Sunday! If it can't be sunny outside, try to think sunny inside! (While it is snowing here in Maine as I write..........)

I had mocha in my coffee and later will be having a 100 calorie Oreo Cakester. This weekend I trying a new recipe, for chocolate meringue cookies. No, I haven't tried chocolate covered bacon, and I don't want to, can you image the calories.

Have a great weekend everybody.

Hello Chocolate Loving Friends! I am SOOOOOOOOOO happy, happy, happy that this is Friday! FRIDAY! FRIIIIIDAAAAY! I did manage to make up for my chocolate lull. I had 2 60% extra dark chocolate Lindt truffles.I tried to let each one melt in mouth for as long as I could. At least with my mouth full I could stop swearing at the snow LOL! Oh...chocolate-y goodness! Speaking of chocolate-y goodness...or maybe not...has anyone out there tried chocolate covered bacon? I've heard it advertised on the radio quite a bit.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! if you're battling snow AGAIN...sigh...I hope you stay warm, put up a good fight(but go easy if you have to do any shoveling) and have a little chocolate to soothe your soul!

P.S. Cyndy, always good to "see" ya! That mocha drink still sounds wonderful! Trish, I just love your new profile picture--SO adorable! You have the best kitty pics.! Claire, thinking of ya.

In the end what matters most is: How well did you live. How well did you love. How well did you learn to let go.

Hello Chocolate Loving Chums! Claire... I'm holding good thoughts for you and hope you're hanging in there. I can only imagine how incredibly hard this must be for you and your colleagues to go through all of this. I truly hope things will be ok for you. Trish...thank goodness your hot water returned. You're right we don't truly appreciate the necessities we have until we're without them. I'm glad you weren't without it for too, too long. Cyndy...good to hear from you and thanks for your kind wishes. It's always good to see your fun and colorful posts! Thanks! Have you found your high, high tops yet? My daughter just bought a pair of bright yellow high tops for spring. They are really cute and look right at home dumped on the mudroom floor along with the heap of purple, maroon and aqua high tops already taking up residence! I'm still feeling blaah...can't seem to shake this horrid headache and unsettled tummy. I think I do need to invent a chocolate flavored fizzy drink of some sort! Anyhooo...since the world apparently comes to a screeching halt when I'm sick and no one else is capable of doing the grocery shopping, cleaning or laundry, etc. GRRRRR...I've NO chocolate whatsoever in the house, garage, car, my purse, sock drawer, flour canister, loose change cup, under my pillow, under the floorboards, between the pages of my fav. book...I'm tapped out for now... not a nibble or a crumb...please don't kick me off the team!!! LOL!

In the end what matters most is: How well did you live. How well did you love. How well did you learn to let go.

Hi all!
Sorry about not being around as often these days. As some of you know, I have LOTS on my mind and have been facing some struggles! Thank you SOOOOOOO much for ALL your support!!!!!
There's a BIG school board meeting tomorrow night that I am planning on attending. Programs and staff are being cut all around me and it's scary! How do you comfort colleagues and friends who just found out they have no job next year? And....knowing this could also be me??? It's a very tough and trying situation.

I've been having my chocolate though! Chocolate always needs to be on the menu somehow. I've been rationing my Lindt chocolate each day. The bars I bought last week should last me a while!

I'm hoping my life returns to normal soon....but, on the other hand, what is normal anyway?

Hey Claire, Cyndy, Trish and fellow Chocolate Lovers! I'm here...I keep turning up like a bad penny! LOL! I hope everyone's doing well. My weekend was "horribibble!" I was sick and down for the count since Sat. p.m. I wish they could make a chocolate flavored ginger ale type tummy settling drink! Or...do they????? Anyhoo...It's been a rainy, yucky Monday so...I needed a lil' pick me up from my Mocha Swirl friend. Sadly, it didn't sit well on me tummy, so the upside...less calories consummed! Yay! Here's hoping everyone has a Tremendous Tuesday! ~B. emoticon

In the end what matters most is: How well did you live. How well did you love. How well did you learn to let go.

Hi All!

Cyndy--I love your profile picture! Now,those are some awesome high tops!

No worries, Claire, about the Lindt chocolate. I'm sure I'll recover (sniff, sniff, tear, cry, sob, wail...) Actually,the virtual chocolate is more the ticket for me, right now. I am really trying to duke it out with these stubborn, STUBBORN lbs. Grrr! I think since we've, finally, had some sun, I'm in an exercise spurt, so I'm being verwy, verwy, good : ) Well...sorta verwy good...I did discover these beautiful, sunny, pastel M&M candies with little bunnies, lambs and chicks on them and they are just too darn adorable not to gobble up! I didn't eat the WHOLE bag--I did share (but that doesn't mean I wouldn't have rather strapped the entire thing on like a feed bag!)

I hope everyone has a great evening and an awesome Saturday!

In the end what matters most is: How well did you live. How well did you love. How well did you learn to let go.

Good evening Spark buddies!!!!! I hope you all had an enjoyable Thursday.

Bella....sorry about the Lindt chocolates. I feel bad and guilty. emoticon
I did think of you while I was there---HONEST!!! Does that count? Here's a piece just for you!

Make that several:

Is this enough for everyone?

My offer still stands! If you are ever in Maine, I will personally meet you and give you a tour of all the fabulous places in Freeport. Plus there are lots of other wonderful sites to see that I could recommend all over the state.

Oh Trishann----My daughter discovered an awesome gelato shop in Brunswick, Maine. She said it is to die for!!

Today, I finished the last 4 squares of the Lindt Lindor Truffles Extra Dark 60% Cocoa Chocolate with the Smooth Filling bar. I do have 4 more bars though along with an orange filled variety.

Sweet chocolaty dreams all!!! emoticon

Hi Claire, Cyndy, Trishann and Everyone! Thanks for sharing all the wonderful links and recipes!

Ok, Claire...where's our Lindt chocolates, hmmmmm??????? Guess I'll just have to enjoy it vicariously, through you!! I'm drooling over here just reading about your recent jaunt and all the yummies you purchased. Good, choice to give up the olives for lent...who needs those stinkin' olives when there's CHOCOLATE!

Trishann, you go girl! What a way to be bad LOL!! Hey I, wholeheartedly believe we are all entitled to a day of indulgence--all ya gotta do is happy dance those calories away emoticon

Sadly, I haven't been able to enjoy anything chocolate related lately, but "there's always tomorrow for dreams to come true..." Have a great evening everyone and have a thoroughly, thrilling Thursday!



In the end what matters most is: How well did you live. How well did you love. How well did you learn to let go.

Trishann --- Those recipes look really good! emoticon

emoticon Hi Cyndy!!!

emoticon Hi Bella!!!

I went to have my teeth cleaned today and the hygienist used mint chocolate toothpaste! It was great! Look Mom, no cavities!!!

I had 4 squares of the Lindt Lindor Truffles Extra Dark 60% Cocoa Chocolate with a Smooth Filling. Each bar has 12 squares so one will last me 3 days. I'm rationing these. 4 squares has 214 calories, so I have to eat these with caution!

Lent starts today, but I could NEVER give up chocolate!! I suppose that would be the ultimate sacrifice. I think I'll give up.......olives...... emoticon

What chocolate did you eat today?

Where do I begin? emoticon
Bad....bad...bad, but good...good...good.
I never ate lunch or dinner, so that was a plus!
Let's just say I decided to celebrate Mardi Gras today so we'll call it Lundi Gras!!!!

Freeport is such a fun place, but dangerous for calorie watching. I threw it out the window today and sometimes you just need to do that! Well.....I did anyway!

At When Pigs Fly Bakery,
www.sendbread.com/
I purchased a chocolate bread! YUMMMY!! I had sampled a piece before, but I broke down today and bought one. I split it with my daughter and then gave a piece to my Mom when I visited her. Well.....my share is now ALL gone!

Next, we went to Wilbur's of Maine Candy Shop.
www.wilburs.gourmetfoodmall.com/
I ended up buying a pound of irregular dark and milk chocolate covered orange and raspberry jellies. Well...my daughter and I finished off the box throughout the day. I hope she ate more than I did!

We also visited Simply Divine Brownies.
www.simplydivinebrownies.com/
We had never seen this place before, so thought we'd check it out. It was a bit expensive, but they did give out small samples of their Wild Maine Blueberry Brownies. It was very different and good!

We had to visit the Lindt Chocolate Shop (sorry ladies!).
www.freeportusa.com/freeportmember04
7.
html
They had a special where you could purchase 10 bars for $15 but you had to buy 10. I bought 5 of the Lindt Extra Dark 60% Cocoa Chocolate with a Smooth Filling and 5 of the Lindt 70% Cocoa Dark Chocolate with Chocolate Mousse and Orange Filling. I have not gotten into any of these and am planning on rationing these out. They are stored in my pantry for my daily allowances.

Of course we visited LL Bean as this was our intended destination.
www.llbean.com/
This is the flagship store and huge! I LOVE this place! I did purchase an odometer for my future bike along with a bike water bottle cage and bottle. My daughter purchased a cute Radio Flyer Walker Wagon for my grandson. My next ambition is to start biking. I had $40 in gift certificates to spend so decided to buy what I'll need for biking.
emoticon

I did get to go skating for about 30 minutes this afternoon. How many chocolate calories did I burn today? I did walk around Freeport too. That should count a little bit!

I'll get back on track tomorrow....I hope!!!!
I HAVE TO!!! AHHHHH!!! HELP!!!!
I don't feel so good tonight...........
