Hello chocolate lovers! So glad to kick off this sweetest of months with you. I just returned from a meeting with Dr. Albers where I was presented with a very large bag of chocolatey goodness. We’re talking serious chocolate, ranging from chocolate bars to chocolate covered berries to chocolate tea! I have laid out all my loot on the dining room table. My eyes zero in immediately on two items: a bar of Ghirardelli Hazelnut Heaven, and a bag of Dove Roasted Almonds. I feel my pulse rate rising and detect a bit of salivation going on. I want it. I want it bad, baby.

But wait, I already had my chocolate today. Dr. Albers put me through an experiment, with five different types of chocolate, to see if I could order them from least, to highest, percentage of cacao. I’ll have you know, I aced this test. And so I do believe Dr. Albers has met her match…and I do believe I’ve met mine. What kind of monster gives a chocolate lover an entire bag of the stuff and asks her to eat only an ounce a day?  Ahhh, we shall see. All in a month’s time, we shall test Dr. Albers’ experiments. And we shall see how a woman who steals the “good stuff” out of her childrens’ Halloween pumpkins while the precious angels sleep, will survive temptation of momentous proportions.

Each day in February, I shall eat 1 oz. (or more;) of chocolate and tell you all about it. I suggest you gather your own chocolate so you can participate, rather than just watch voyeuristically…unless that’s your thing. And now, chocolate be gone! Back in the bag with you! Close the bag, hide the bag, where my kids can’t find it and where it will not be constantly in my sight. I’m weak, dear reader, so weak…
