Must Have Chocolate

In honor of the internet becoming a place where too much information is the norm, let me share that I have my period. And when I get my lovely monthly menses, I want chocolate or salt. Today I want chocolate.


So, I instead of my normal yummy scones, I decided to look upon something that I will not eat in one sitting. You see, if I make eight scones that means 4 for me and 4 for the hubster. I will eat all 4 in one sitting. Yes, I am gross and a glutton and I make no apologies for that. Scones and tea are a wonderful combination and I am willing to work out harder at the gym to enjoy that indulgence. The funny thing is, I no longer care about desserts after dinner. I would rather have the delicious veggies and fish and whatnot instead of a piece of cake at the end. Go figure. I prefer my sweet sin in the morning. Oh yeah.

Right now, in my oven, a delicious looking Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Quick Bread is baking. I have no buttermilk so I am using soy milk and vinegar as the buttermilk replacement. I love how vinegar thickens up the milk. Simple, freaky science I was unaware of until a few years of ago and needed a buttermilk replacement. I would like to thank all those bakers that came before and figured our substitutes. I also cannot wait to eat a piece, or two, of this bread. My tea will need reheating, but such a small price to pay for a delectable morning treat.

My son has decided that emptying his water cup out on the floor and all over himself is the new favorite past time. He has also seems to enjoys wiping it up so I sort of win as long as I get a rag to him right away.

I am now using iAWriter for my newest novel. So far so good. You really do zone out while working which is exactly what I needed, but buyer beware. There are no bells and whistles to this program. No words correcting themselves as you type along, no fancy footnote,  Scrivener type stuff. Meh, I am fine with it and sort of feel like I am writing on a typewriter since it is so simplistic. It has some features, but if you were looking to get fancy schmancy stuff this ain't it. For 99 cents, I am not complaining one bit. Isn't that nice for a change?  :)



  1. Sugar fixes are amazing when satisfied. I've always been partial to the vanilla Friend-Z with extra oreos and sprinkles at Friendlys, usually when I'm in a foul mood... I guess there's something for everyone!

  2. Extra Oreos makes everything better. LOL
