I've been dieting (after I saw a very unflattering photo of myself) and within a week have already fallen off the wagon. Tonight I was craving chocolate sooo bad that I climbed out of bed and made my way down the hallway in pink fuzzy slippers and all to the kitchen. I pulled the top off the cookie jar (my secret stash) and reached inside to find it EMPTY! I flipped on the kitchen light and peered into my cookie jar; no Hershey almond bar to be found. Hubby! Immediately I knew he had found my stash once again. How could this be? That cookie jar has been empty for nearly 3 years and it's sole purpose is for decoration. How did he know that I slid my emergency chocolate in there? I mean, it was the perfect hiding place.
My tingling chocolate senses told me that there was chocolate in the house. I thought it was odd that he was so eager to run to the grocery store last night to pick up a few items I needed. That meant one thing and one thing only, CHOCOLATE RUN! Ok, but where would he stash all that delicious chocolate? Sherlock Holmes would have checked the room he spent the most time in, his office. I looked everywhere, desk, bookshelves, closet, but came up empty handed. Then just as I was about to leave I noticed one of his diploma's was off centered and turned to the right. I slid my hand behind the frame and I hit the mother load. Peanut m&m's, Hershey kisses, chocolate covered pretzels. Holy cow! I did as any woman half crazed for chocolate would do and wiped out an entire bag of m&m's, handfuls of kisses, and a couple of pretzels. I think I have consumed about 3 days worth of calories in one night. Ok, why did I have to go looking for that stash? I was going to break off a few squares from my Hershey bar and now I went crazy and ruined my diet. Tomorrow is going to be a carrot and celery day for sure. And I have to explain to my husband where his missing chocolate is. We don't even have kids or a dog I could blame, LOL! But in all fairness he created this monster when he stole my Hershey bar. Yup, completely 100% his fault. Think he'll buy it (wink).
I live in Houston, Texas with my gorgeous husband. I love music, the arts, cooking, tennis, traveling, and New Orleans. We are from New Orleans and we take cooking serious around our house. I love to try new recipes and chat with those who love to cook.
