AS most of you know, I gave up chocolate as a New Year resolution. It's cut back on my sweets consumption some (Ferrero Rochers mock me at the check out stand), for the most part I've just shifted which sweets I eat. For example, instead of ice cream sandwiches, I now have orange creamsicles.
Last night was the first time in the 4 months that I've been chocolate free that I really wanted some. The roommate and I do laundry at a laundromat. While the clothes are in the drier, we walk across the street to the Friendly's and grab dinner. On the menu was a hot chocolate sundae - chocolate ice cream with whipped cream, mini marshmallows, and Swiss cocoa, all served in a mug, too. It sounded really, really good and I almost broke my chocolate fast. I am happy to report that I did triumph over temptation, with a little help from some maple walnut ice cream.
Today I am randomly craving peanut butter. Why? I have no idea.
