Merry (late) Christmas to Meeeeeeee!

Andrew brought home a late Christmas present for me..... AN 11 POUND BAR OF DARK BELGIAN CHOCOLATE!!!!

While we were in Texas for Christmas, Andrew's father, Dick, was reminiscing about a huge block of chocolate that Andrew's grandmother had brought them many years ago. I was immediately intrigued. I may have asked for many details about the chocolate and how good it tasted. I might have dreamed about it that night. Seeing the beginning of an obsession, Andrew secretly hopped on the interwebs and found this beauty. Behold!


It tastes like heaven. HEAVEN!!! Note that we have hacked off a couple of huge chunks already. I use the term "hacked off" for a reason-- cutting off pieces to eat takes a huge knife and a lot of patience. I think we're going to drop it to break it in smaller pieces to make it easier to eat. Andrew said that the chocolate should stay good for a year, but I doubt it will last that long! He printed out some recipes for us to make using the chocolate, but honestly, I'm happy eating it plain. Sonia may weigh twice as much as the chocolate, but it's almost as big as she is!


THANK YOU SO MUCH, ANDREW! I LOVE YOU!

Oh My Lord! You have the best husband.

I'm loving the pic of the size comparison. Good idea with the toy distraction. I wouldn't have had time to take the picture before Rose would have gone straight to the chocolate. :)

That sure puts my 1kg bar of Dairy Milk chocolate from World Market to shame!

I remember that big bar of chocolate! Did Grandpa Dick mention that we put the paper-wrapped spoils (so to speak) of our trip to the fishmonger's right on top of the chocolate? We had to throw most of it away because it SMELLED like FISH.
