Word of the Week: Chocolate

This week my word is chocolate, and I've enjoyed every minute of it!

It started with a "warm-up" birthday cake from my parents when they visited, which they left with us so MOH and I got to finish that.

Then on Tuesday I finished our meal out with profiteroles and yesterday MOH came home with a bar of Montezuma's chocolate with chilli as a birthday surprise. There's also a promise of chocolate mousse to come, it was supposed to be yesterday but we just ran out of time to make this on a school-night.

It's a well known fact that a birthday isn't a birthday without chocolate and therefore this birthday has been a resounding success. And as one of my friends said yesterday, everyone knows that calories don't count on birthdays!  Hallelujah!

All in all a good week.
