See....THIS is what I'm talking about.
What can a girl do?! I've had a bit of chocolate but it doesn't seem to help. I am going to try to resist until the weekend though. I won free tickets to the cities Chocolate Extravaganza. So there will be all sorts of decadent treats to try, and since I won't be able to partake of the free wine I might as well get my chocolate fix then. But just look at the lovely cakes above and say you don't crave it too.
I'm sorry, I'm mean, aren't I?
When I was in Seminary there was a restaurant nearby and whenever my parents visited we would go their for dinner. And they had this dessert...Bailey's Chocolate Mousse cake. Mom and I would always get this dessert. It was worth skipping dinner for if necessary. It was awesome. And then one day the restaurant had changed their desserts around and it was GONE. I never have been able to find its equivalent to this day. It was chocolaty and creamy and perfect. I wish I had a piece of that, but given the liqueur in it I probably couldn't have it anyway. It was a sad day when that dessert left the menu.
What does this have to do with anything? Well, simply that I take my desserts seriously. I don't crave them often necessarily but when I do...watch out! Since I haven't had too many cravings in this pregnancy to date I wonder if I should give in. But naturally, I don't NEED any chocolate cake. And there will be plenty of chocolate this weekend...sigh, I hope I can make it to the weekend. :)
