I have an extreme aversion to drinking my calories.
I just feel like it's a stupid thing to do, a waste of time.
I mean, aside from the fact that a lovely slice of cake or a nice bowl of ice cream is infinitely more satisfying than a can of Coke, don't you find it a tad ridiculous when a drink makes you more thirsty?
I do have one exception, however: Hot Chocolate : )
And, by hot chocolate, I mean the deep, dark, Parisian kind which is pretty much liquid ganache in a cup. It's like a truffle you can drink. It's like a hug. In your mouth. Made of love.
I'm tinkering with a recipe at the moment and I'll put it up once I'm completely satisfied with it so you can have a hot chocolate mouth hug, too.
