Judg, I found some ground cacao beans at Natural Grocers. They don't sell the Choffy brand, but I think this works just as well. You can also order the beans on line and grind them up. I have a coffee grinder that I use primarly for herbs when making mixes, but I'm not against using it for it's original intent. I might just order some beans this weekend.
Man someone brought baklava to our group last night! Okay, yes, I ate like two of them. My friend Jhones, who is from Brazil, has never had them before and he's the one that bought them. I told him those things were like crack to me. Of course he is now hooked on them. Poor guy. Before I forget! He had some of that matte like tea at last weeks meeting. I did try some, but the water was still hot so I couldn't drink very much. I loved the mug and metal straw that he was using to drink it with.
B: 3 pcs bacon
L: leftover 2 drumsticks from the lemon and artichoke chicken and the last of mom's cranberry sauce.
D: Jason's Deli The Papa Joe with no bread and some steamed veggies
S: Some dark choclate truffles, 2 baklava's, some dip that's green but not guacomole, and some cheese ball.
Drinks: Water, choffy with coconut milk, cinnamon, and ginger slices, some sweetened tea that I sweetened with honey, and some unsweet tea.
No exercise yesterday. I was up early getting bills taken care of. I did learn that I may have some money coming my way after I managed to mess something up. Usually that works the other way around!
Who still makes potpourri? I through about 6 small cinnamon sticks, some ground nutmeg, and a few slices of ginger root in a small saucepan yesterday and then boiled it. Once I turned it down to low heat I let it simmer. Oh man, I forogt how good that smells! My dad used to do this when we were kids. Whenever I would go over to his apartment I would always see a saucepan on the stove with the stuff. It smells like Christmas in my apartment but it doesn't smell too sweet. Also, I've added some ginger rood slices to the cinnamon bark tea. YUM!
