Chocolate vs Vanilla

Chocolate! Not even a close race. And the darker the chocolate, the better. And the dark, the better for you, actually. Dark Chocolate has chemicals that are good for you. I am a self-confessed cholaholic; I should have included chocolate in my post about “Can’t Say No.” I save room from my dinners out simply to have remove for the decadent chocolate dessert on the menu. Today I’m taking my granddaughters to “Rango” and then to CiCi’s pizza. We go there as much for the brownies as for the pizza. Not just me, but the granddaughters. too.

The only difference between my granddaughters and me on the subject of chocolate would be that they will eat milk chocolate and I do so only under duress. For me, the darker and more cacoa in chocolate, the better for my palate and the better for my health. I ration my chocolate intake so I don’t overindulge. But a small piece of dark chocolate filled with raspberries is my heaven of what heaven will be like.

I have nothing against vanilla. I actually like vanilla. I put vanilla in my coffee. Vanilla is an ingredient in my grandmother’s famous chocolate pie. Vanilla and chocolate go well together. But especially when it comes to ice cream, give me chocolate (deep and dark) everytime.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
