Chocolate haze

If you were to offer me chocolate right now I would turn it down. I know! How crazy is that? But it's true.

My mom and I went to a chocolate/wine/food tasting thingie last night and ate more chocolate than should be allowed by law. It was like something out of a dream. A beautiful chocolate dream. You didn't even know where to start because everywhere you looked there were plates of chocolate cake, brownies, fudge, truffles, cookies, pies, chocolate covered fruit and more. When you got tired of chocolate there were stuffed mushrooms (for people who enjoy eating fungus) bacon wrapped shrimp (for people who enjoy eating pure heaven on a toothpick) meat and cheese trays, huge blocks of gourmet cheese and more. Plus, there was wine.

It was insane.

So I got my fill of chocolate. I think I'm still crashing from a major sugar buzz. I'm also dealing with a wicked cold so all I really want to do today is crawl back into bad and sleep. No luck for me though because very shortly Joseph has a concert at school and then tonight we have to drive 2 hours to a wedding. And it's supposed to snow tonight. Ugh. Oh well. At least I have my memories of a happy chocolate haze to keep me company.

I think you need a "fungal eating enjoyment" tag.

I'm thinking about hooking up my chocolate fountain on my kitchen counter and just leaving it running....that way I can just drag my tounge as I walk by every so often. Right?? Like a SALT LICK for animals??

That would be good....

Mmm chocolate. Sorry, that's all I've got. I should really stop leaving comments while semi-drunk. :)

conversemomma - I guess it's kind of a long story but yes, I was a surrogate. I hope to do it again soon! Thanks for stopping by!

Ben - Really? Because Jesse says I don't.

radiomom - If I had one of those I would dip everthing I ate in chocolate. Chocolate dipped fruit, chocolate dipped bread, chocolate dipped mulit-vitamins.

andi - Drinking and commenging is the best. We should all do it.

pendullum - It was. I want to do it all over again.

genevieve - Thanks!

mrs schmitty - The large amounts of chocolate helped my cold feel better. Chocolate fixes everything.

Mmmmm BACON + SHRIMP. Heaven on a stick indeed. (Screw the toothpick, I want a big ole stick with meat on it!)

Jen said...

sam - I ate so many of those shrimp things. It got to where I was almost emberessed to go back to the table for more because the person working there was starting to give me funny looks.
