67 of 365


Ah, now this really is worth documenting. We opened a box of chocolates on Valentine's Day - and here, on March 8th, as you can see, THERE WAS STILL ONE LEFT!! I managed to limit myself to one a day, and between times I ignored the fact that there was an open box of chocolates in the house! Still can't quite believe I managed it....

So one thing I ate that day was that last chocolate (caramel centre, yum) but also I had a real yen for a coffee cake so I did a spot of baking too:


Big mistake, as it happens :-( I like to be able to really taste the flavour so I put lots of coffee into cake and icing - had a slice for supper - and couldn't sleep that night..... *doh!*

I'm very proud of your chocolate restraint :-)
We had a similar thing happen with an extremely rich chocolate self-saucing pudding eaten late at night ...

I love the photo of the nearly empty chocolate box--such a great pattern and the light is perfect! No chocolate would last out in the open here. My husband has NO restraint!

Wow, that's super impressive - don't know that I'd have managed to just have one a day! Cake looks yummy too!

the chocolate would have been gone within an hour here lol

I admire your restraint with the chocolate and it was definitely worth documenting. If it was mine it would not have lasted that long - my kids on the other hand, still have chocolate left from Christmas!

Wow - that's quite an accomplishment.

Santa gave me a bag of dark chocolate/raspberry Ghiradeli squares for Christmas and I have a couple left in the bag. I do have to admit though, they were tucked away in my craft room and forgotten until I started digging for supplies for Shimelle's class. They won't be around much longer! :o)

I love coffee cake!! Mmmm and that looks yummy!

Coffee cake is an odd thing over here - it doesn't actually have coffee in it!! Like you can get lemon coffee cake - and chocolate coffee cake - and raspberry coffee cake ;)

Coffee cake just means cake to have with coffee :(

If I want coffee cake I have to make it - which is fine but SOMETIMES it would be convenient to be able to nip out to M&S and buy one ;) lol!

That's a great shot of the chocolate box ~ more willpower than me!
