A Chocoholic Gone Bad

ahhh my beloved day off. I slept in til 7:40, made a waffle sandwich for breakfast and then made a soy milk cappuccino in my cappuccino maker to relax on the couch with! Unlike last Thursday, I don’t have a huge project to work on today. Instead I have cleaning to do as well as a light grocery shop. I’m pretty sure my dad is coming tonight to my presentation at school and then staying at my apartment because he has to be in Orlando tomorrow anyways for business so I am trying to make the place look a little cleaner for him!


Last night at school we did a good job at getting everything done and tonight all we have to do is finishing assembling the eclairs and slice up the opera and battenburg tortes. Something very strange happened last night though….I GOT SICK OF CHOCOLATE!  Seriously! I was working for about 2 1/2 hours on my petit fours, with my face about 3 inches from melted chocolate and it actually gave me a headache and made me feel nausious. Combine that with the fact that I had chocolate all over me—underneath my fingernails, on my cheek, all over my apron… was crazy. These tiny little cakes are so not worth all the effort. The only snack I brought was my chocolate muffin…so I ate that but it just put me over the line. No more! At least for a little while!!!

    Sounds like you have some fun activities planned for your day off – hooray for a visit from your Dad, and a food-shopping trip, especially!

    Ahh, sorry that the chocolate-aroma gave you a headache/made you feel nauseated :0( But hey, this would be a perfect opportunity for you to embrace a VeggieGirl obsession: CAROB!!! :0D

    Have a FANTASTIC Thursday!!!

    Haha – my first high school job was at an ice cream parlor and i actually got sick of ice cream (my favorite thing ever). I’m sure your creations are awesome though and can’t wait to see pictures!

    ha–i was gonna say the same thing! I’ve been sick of chocolate many times, but it only lasts a few days. Chocolate is the best (and carob is good too!).

    Awe, that’s no fun when that happens! I have gotten sick of chocolate before and usually I just end up craving it MORE in a couple of days… hope that doesn’t happen to you too 🙂

    Ugh, I totally understand. Any time you have to work with something – even as grand as chocolate – that much you get SICK of it! (i.e. Jill and baked goods).

    Maybe I’ll join you in searching out VeggieGirl’s carob, I really don’t know what the difference is taste-wise though.

    I worked in an ice-cream shop and at the end I was so sick of ice-cream (and I didn’t have any), but specially, so sick of fudge! unbelievable!
    Just rest a bit, and in a couple of days you’ll be eating it again 🙂
