Ten more days and Turkey Day will descend upon us. For a vegetarian household "Turkey day" means so much more... not to imply that we don't eat like Romans, cuz we do, but we're trying to put more focus on being truly thankful this time around.

And so I will now begin ten days of thankfulness. I'll try not to be too long winded about this - just give you a little something to think about, and I promise to try to not have every post be about food... starting tomorrow... Maybe.

Today, however, the word is Chocolate. All things Chocolate. No, I didn't accidentally capitalize that either... I think every proper name should begin with a capital letter.

This is my son's mug of homemade hot cocoa from this morning. You can tell I was feeling particularly benevolent today since I topped it with whipped cream and a sprinkle cocoa. What's better than liquid chocolate? Solid chocolate maybe. Truffles are right up there... just bring it any way you can and you're my new best friend. But don't bring me the cheap stuff... I can be a bit of a chocolate snob. But hey - this is about thankfulness, right? So I'll even accept your Whitman's and your Palmer right now. Just as long as it's smooth and brown (or white...that'll do too.)

Coffee? We don't need no stinking coffee... We prefer to start our day with chocolate.


  1. Yummy looking hot chocolate! Perhaps we should plan a visit when it's cold enough to enjoy some.

  2. ditto on the last sentence!
    my kids would love to wake up at your house..we just use those mini marshmellows.

    And chi tea works for me also..

    Looking forward to your "thankful list".

  3. Yummy but I cannot give up my coffee....chocolate and coffee two very awesome things to be thankful for!!!!
    What is your menu for a normal Turkey Day without Turkey BTW???!!!
    Hugs, :) Heather S.

  4. Oh yes! Chocolate is the best in any form. I can't wait to see what else you are thankful for. Lisa~

  5. MMMM....I'm thankful for the yummy stuff as well!

  6. Chocolate is definitely a good thing.

    Looking forward to your list.

  7. Oh my gosh that looks delicious!! You got it right, we don't need no stinkin coffee LOL
