I am tired today and I just need to think of good things.  I fight eating when I am tired but one of my favorite things is dark chocolate. 

This from a woman who, when released from the hospital following open heart surgery, stopped at Steak N Shake for a PepperJack Burger. In case my doctor is reading, #1, it was the best meal I ever had, and #2, I think I have stopped exactly twice in the year and a  half since.  It’s not an every day thing. I have drastically changed my eating habits and my last blood test now have fantastic readings.  I look forward to the food I eat now, , chicken, vegetables and salads and dark chocolate.

The best of which is Dark Chocolate Truffles from the South Bend Chocolate Company. http://www.southbendchocolate.com/

You know a truffle is good when one a day satifises you. I’ve tried other “famous” brands, and I am here to tell you that the South Bend Chocolate Company is the absolute best.  Too bad I don’t have any. I find that when I have a really good truffle, I am satisfied with one.  The other stuff leaves me wanting more.

Since my daughter lives in South Bend, it is one of the “girl” things that we like to do together. It’s much cheaper than a pedicure.  We stop at their Chocolate Cafe and Outlet Store for hot chocolate.  I love their Mexican hot chocolate and have tried to duplicate it at home, using dark hot chocolate and chili powder.  It will do, but it’s not the same.

And, as long as we-me have/has mentioned food, I can’t leave with mentioning Aurelio’s Pizza, http://www.aureliospizza.com mostly in Northern Indiana.  I have traveled all over this country and I challenge anyone to find me a pizza better than Aurelio’s.  This is definitely not low-fat food. But, when it is time for a treat, it is a must.  We lived in Wyoming for eight years and missed Aurelio’s.  When we moved back to Indiana, one of the things we looked forward to was Aurelio’s.  There isn’t any down here that we have found. 

Okay, I’m tired. Instead of eating though, I sit here and write about it.  Hmmm! New Diet?
