My office received our first holiday food gift today. It's Great and it's Bad. Great, because I love cookies and chocolate! Bad, because I love cookies and chocolate.
Anyway, here's the story. We received a big box of cookies. There was a list of what kinds of cookies were in the box. Before I arrived to eye the deliciousness, people were standing around trying to figure out which cookies were which. Does that strike you as funny or does this explain why I now have to watch what I eat? To me, it was a piece of cake, well, cookie. There were chocolate chip (my favorite!), double chocolate chip (my other favorite!!), peanut butter (also great with chips), spritz, chocolate dip spritz (now we're talking), white chocolate chip, snickerdoodles, sugar, lemon bars, rasberry bars, oatmeal raisin (skip the raisins, add chocolate chips), lemon poppyseed, etc. Ok, here's my point: Not know cookies? ?? I don't understand. How does this happen?
...One young lady asked me which cookie she would like since she didn't want anything too sweet. LOL! I suggested the spritz ... light, buttery, quite tasty. She liked it. Another lady asked for an unusual cookie. I handed her the cranberry white chocolate. She loved it. To another I offered the white chocolate chip. I am now the cookie expert. Now? I have always been a cookie expert! LOL! Notice I didn't pass out any of the chocolate treats. I'm also selfish!
It's funny. I was thinking the other day that I haven't posted anything about chocolate and it's one of my favorite things. I'll have to work on that.
I don't keep any around my house anymore because I'll eat it. I don't bake very much anymore because I'll eat it. I can only bring home what I want, no, will, no, should, yes, should eat at one time.
So, who out there likes chocolate? Do you have a favorite? candy, cookie, cake, dessert? Are you going to make any chocolate goodies for Christmas?
