 Now I know that you all have been enjoying 
your fair share of chocolate lately.
If you have been hanging out here with me…
you have a least been viewing a lot of chocolate. 
Did you know when VIEWING CHOCOLATE you actually consume less calories, 
than when you actually EAT CHOCOLATE.
I know! Really amazing!
Aren’t you surprised by the very 
intellectual things you learn when you drop by to visit with me.
Today we are taking a little break from Chocolate, 
and dessert, 
and sugar.
What better to replace it with than bread!
And cheese,
and a yummy red sauce. 
I think you are going to like taking a break!
