Going cold-turkey for Lent
You all know I LOVE chocolates right? And right now, I could so do with a bar right now and be really happy!
Yes, there is a but.
Because I have decided to go cold-turkey.
No, not permanently of course.
Just for 40 days.
Yesterday was Ash Wednesday which marks the beginning of Lent. So I have decided I should do something sacrificial too. And so, for the time of Lent, I am not going to eat chocolates. I shall block it out of my mind, it should hide in the shadows:
and I'll not eat a single ounce of chocolate for this month. Is it possible you wonder? I say Yes.... if Jesus could die on the cross, then I could do something as painless as giving up chocolates temporarily.
So, I'm afraid there won't be any chocolate recipes this month. Well I could still bake chocolate stuff I guess, for the family but I think I'd rather be on the safe side. Out of sight, out of mind. :p
Wish me luck! hahaa I doubt there would be withdrawal symptoms. hmph!
