So here it is the cake of choice:Bittersweet Chocolate Cake (Milk Chocolate Ganache)
It was delicious but it didn’t taste like I expected it would. In a way it was kind of a let down. Chocolate doesn’t taste the same to me anymore.
I feel chocolate doesn’t have a hold on me anymore. I feel freed from an addiction! Even though AL and I shared that small dessert, there was even some left. Today I bought hot chocolate for a co-workers and chose coffee for myself.
I know that at another time of the month (pms) I will crave chocolate and indulge in it, but it feels great not to feel controlled by it anymore. It feels great not to want it!
Don’t get me wrong, I battle sugar constantly, some days are easier than others, but I feel that conquering chocolate is progress and brings me closer to having a normal relationship with sugar.
So last night, we had a great meal at a local restaurant called Alvin and Friends http://www.alvinandfriendsrestaurant.com! I had Caramelized Salmon with Roasted Potatoes, Asparagus, Pot Likker Butter Sauce. AL had Braised Curried Lamb Shank with Black Eyed Pea Vegetable Salad, Lemon-Truffle Vinaigrette. Both dishes were delicious! But we both still vote the duck the best dish there – and I am not even a duck person!!
Followed by conversation, music and even some Sunday night football!
Life is amazing and it keeps getting better all the time!! 🙂
