So, I have to admit something. I’m a chocolate addict!!! For the longest time I avoided all candy and chocolate (while I was in the process of losing weight) but once I hit my goal, I decided to splurge once in a while and have a piece a day. Eventually, one piece turned to two, and two to three, and on and on. Now I usually eat 3-4 pieces a day. I know, this is not good of me, I need to stop. I need to only eat chocolate when I’m seriously craving it, and need that chocolate fix. So this is my current short-term goal: cut back on chocolate!!!
Anyway, since we’re talking about chocolate, I had a small piece of chocolate cake yesterday, for a co-worker’s birthday. It was from Walmart, and it was really good! Nice job, Walmart! There were even sparkles on it!
So last weekend, I went to one of my new favorites places for dinner, Cafe 217. The first time I went there, I ordered the chocolate chip pancakes and they were under cooked, so I was a little weary of ordering them again. But the second time I went there I got the raspberry crepes, which turned out delicious! On Friday, I tried the pancakes again, instead of chocolate chip I got the raspberry /granola ones (with fruit instead of home fries). The granola was nowhere to be found, but the pancakes were great otherwise. I’m pretty sure pancakes just might be my favorite food. Anyway, the thing I like about Cafe 217 is that its never crowded there, and they have a really cool ambiance, and you can order drinks! (I had a glass of Ravenswood Shiraz, Vinters Blend with my pancakes! It was so tasty!) And the glass of wine was huge! Also, I like they are open literally all weekend, 24 hours a day.
I was also in the mood for dessert (I’m actually always in the mood for dessert) and because I had been running a lot and ate pretty good during the week, I decided to order the Samoa Ice Cream Sandwich. Samoa you say? Like the girl scout cookie? YES! The ice cream sandwich was between two Samoa cookies (my favorite girl scout cookie) with ice cream rolled in graham cracker crumbs between them. The best. idea. ever. literally. The dish came with three little sandwiches, and I ate two! Yummy.
