Both Manda and I have been suffering from a general malaise lately. I think it's due to the winter doldrums, she thinks it's due all the comfort food we consume.
Low light levels at this time of year and staying indoors all day every day will contribute to our sense of blah. Cream soups and heavy stews help the slow feeling too. Too many hot cocoas topped off with cream and yummy chocolates fill me up and send me right to the sofa.
Manda and I decided it's time to get out, walk a bit and get to the gym and do a little exercise. She's done those things, I have not. Manda said our food choices have to change as well. Change? Who said change ever helped anyone? Manda demanded we eat healthier. I agreed but refused to give up everything. I will not give up candy.
I live for rich creamy nougats and chocolate anything. Light chocolate, dark chocolate, nut chews and truffles are the reason I get out of bed in the morning. In fact, I'll take chocolate dipped, rolled or dolloped, on just about anything. Manda can't make me give up my one true passion.
I don't think she's silly enough to try.
