In retrospect, I should have posted this yesterday… on Fat Tuesday. Oh well.
Today kicks off the lenten season for several Christians across the world. Some people, especially Catholics, abstain from certain items of luxury during this time in order to reflect and refocus. My mom grew up Catholic and jokes that she would eagerly give up bologna during lent. What a struggle. 😉 In all honesty, though, I’m really horrible at this whole sacrificing thing, too.
This year, Robert and I decided to stop eating chocolate. I was particularly delusional one evening and suggested we give up sweets all together, but after about ten seconds of deliberation, we quickly decided it would be better to start small. 😉 As a result, I thought it would be appropriate to list some of my favorite chocolate recipes that I have posted.
Finally, I want to point out that in no way do we believe we are saving the world by abstaining from eating chocolate. It’s just a small challenge we are setting forth for ourselves. As with all things, I think the golden rule along with everyone minding their own business can solve a lot of the world’s problems. 🙂
Happy Wednesday, everyone. See you soon, my dearest of all food loves.
