Chocolate, Wine & Friendships
This is my contribution to Mistress of Cakes...Cup Cake Challenge...she was going to put me in the blog corner, if I did not comply :(
Did you know that if women ate 3 ounce of chocolate per day we would walk around happy campers more often? Sinful, but 99% of all women love chocolate and that they may actually prefer chocolate more to than to sex? (Partners/Spouses...just make a chocolate trail to the bed room!)Reports show that there are health benefits to eating 2-3 oz of chocolate and a glass of red wine each day...
The sweetness from chocolate triggers the release of endorphins. Think about those blissful feeling you had after a wonderful session of lovemaking. That is the effect from the production of endorphins in your body. Perhaps that is why some women actually remarked that they felt a feeling of elation when eating chocolate.
Well, I have had some long days, and Tuesday is always one of the most stressful in my schedule. You already know I am a chef, well I moderate a group of Open Mic Artists that range from poets, writers, and acoustic musicians every other Tuesday in two different locations...feels like another job, but it is suppose to give me an outlet for my desires to stand up and read my work, sing a song I wrote or just be a comedian...like my father said, do not quit the day job, cause it won't pay the bills, but it does help...but then when last night was over...I was stressed from some issues with an 'un-named' person who just drives me crazy...so, I leave there, go to grocery store (weekly habit), and then decided to ease my whoas and make some 'Chocolate Plantain Cup Cakes'...I ate three of them with a glass of wine...or two...ahhhhh, feeling better already!
or find a friend on the blog, and she will reward you with this for cracking her up! Alexis @ Running Away? I'll Help You Pack is so nice... and I appreciate your following my rambles!
Go ahead and grab your chocolate fix when you have had a rough day, along with a glass of wine, and sit down at the computer and blog all you want...tell the family Chef E said it was good for you...and if Mama ain't happy...then no one is!...
