Not for the Faint of Heart

As promised, today I am dedicating the entire post to just one subject inspired by the 31 Day Photo Fun. Just to prepare you, this will not be for the faint of heart.

Day 27: Your Weakness

Chocolate. Yep. I love it. No apologies.


You won’t find me scarfing down a whole bar of chocolate or even an entire cupcake, but I do enjoy sampling – a lot. The sweet samples above came from an artisan chocolate shop here.  When you walk in the door, the aroma is blissful.


Chocolate also comes in liquid form.  These works of art in both appearance and flavor were made within walking distance of our front door.  We should have stayed away.  Now it’s a near impossibility.


Double Chocolate Chip cookies.  And no, I didn’t make them.  A friend of ours brought them over for dessert one night – not even knowing about ‘my weakness’.  How perfect was that?


We felt a responsibility one evening to investigate the new cupcake place.  It was a tough job, but someone had to do it.  I’m pretty certain there are some other flavors and one visit won’t be enough to write a well rounded review.  Somehow we’ll manage.


I threw this extra photo in just in case you didn’t catch it the first time.  My motto really should be ‘So much chocolate, so little time.’ As you can see from these photos, Sebastian is nowhere in sight. This is no accident. If I expect to get even a little tiny bite, he has to stay home. What can I say? We’re competitive that way.


  1. Oh yummy! yummy! yum!! Making my mouth water just looking at the pictures:o)) Pity we haven't got smell a vision LOL!
    Take care and have a good weekend.
    Hugs Lyn x

  2. Hi Ginger,

    Gee whiz - Sebastian was left behind AGAIN, and this time because you didn't want to share all that chocolate? Did you at least bring some home for him? Did you?

    Have a wonderful weekend, and I think you owe Sebastian a little outing over the weekend. Maybe for ice cream?


  3. I'm right there with ya, Ginger. I've made it my mission in life to find the World's Best Chocolate Milkshake, as well... plus I'm always looking for decadent Hot Chocolate (to give you an idea, I wish all hot chocolate were drinking chocolate)... and I can't resist sampling chocolates from new shops. There's a shop here in Michigan that makes awesome chocolates... I have to stay away, LOL

  4. Hmm, we think Sebastian needs to help further your cupcake investigations if you're not going to share the chocolate ;o)

  5. I doubt there's a person alive who can resist chocolate once exposed to it. The smell mouth waters just thinking about it. I've got to do some serious baking soon.

  6. What we do for research!!!!!!
    You made me want chocolate for breakfast?????

  7. Oh Ginger I really do hate you. :) Everything looks so good and of course my most favorite things. (Staples) I call them all. I omit bread so I can have these wonderful food items from time to time. :)

  8. @ Lyn - Smell-o-vision would be great. It'd be tough though reading cooking blogs! I might drool on the keyboard.

    @ The Bear's Blog - Hm-m-m. I suppose a little ice cream now and then wouldn't hurt.

    @ Heather - Maybe I should make it my mission to try all the chocolate shops!? I can eat my way all the way to Michigan to try yours.

    @ Katy - I'm sure you're right. Come on along!

    @ maddyrose - A girl after my own heart!

    @ Kays Kids - I think when I was younger I might have actually done that a time or two.

    @ Bonnie - I like that thinking! So, if we call chocolates staples we can say they are necessary parts of life. Great idea!
