Tiny Morsels Of Chocolate Goodness

While I was eating breakfast the Internet told me that today was National Chocolate Chip Day. It was an interesting fact, but not something I was inspired to act on.

Later in the morning I was out doing grocery shopping and running errands. On the way to the first stop I passed a Saint Louis Bread Company (AKA Paenera) restaurant, which made me I remember that I had a free cookie or pastry waiting for me there. However, I was in the wrong lane and couldn't get over in time.  Three more stops later, on my way back home, I passed another Bread Company location. This time my car pulled into the lot.

Inside, I was a little disappointed at the smallish selection of sweets, but in the end I chose a chocolate chip muffie. I didn't even wait until I got back to the car before I started eating my treat. About the time it was gone I realized that I had celebrated the day I wasn't inclined to.

  2. Never heard of the above day, but you sure deserve a chocolate treat . It can be celebrated any day.

    1. If I had to guess, there's a made-up holiday for every day of the year.

  3. So grateful chocolate does nothing for me, not even taste good until it's in the 90th percentile of cacao.

    1. I'm the opposite. The older I get the more appealing chocolate, cocoa, and cacao are.

  4. You should have gotten two of them. One for you in the car. Another one for you when you got home.

    1. I ate the muffie on an empty stomach. Got a sugar high, then a sugar crash. More would NOT have been good.

  5. Yup. It would have been gone in the blink of an eye for me too.
