Four Foods Friday 29--chocolate

Ok, as a note, I'm getting disturbed that the only thing that moves me to write is food. Apparently I'm not reading enough these days, and have made a conscious choice to keep kid stories to a minimum here. (Main reason being, if you know me, you'll have heard the stories before, and if you don't, why would you care what my kids are doing?) So sorry for the food skew. I'll work on it.

That said, there was no resisting this week's Four Foods Friday meme...

#1. What’s your favorite beverage containing chocolate or chocolate flavoring?

How lame am I? Chocolate milk. I'm not a big hot drinks kind of girl. And I'm not a big alcoholic drink kind of girl. I am far more likely to enjoy an alcoholic beverage with chocolate in it. But I will also often think while drinking one, You know what? This would be REALLY good if there weren't any alcohol in it.

#2. What’s your favorite chocolate bar? OR Share a pic of your favorite candy, chocolate or otherwise.

Favorite candy, right now, is the organic gummy bears I can only find at the Co-Op and Martindales. (Yes, K, the Co-Op started carrying them...and Ezekiel Bread...I may never have to go to Martindales again!) But I can't find a picture of them (I have tried to find them on the web to order wholesale but alas, with no luck whatsoever) so luckily, the next, oh, eight to ten favorites on the list are chocolates. I'm a dark chocolate woman, so plain old Special Darks, Doves, or Blisses are great. But I'm also fond of Take 5, Cadbury Fruit & Nut (or Chunky original), and of course, the ur-candy, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and the spinoff, Reese's wafers.

#3. What’s the most unusual thing you’ve ever eaten that had chocolate in it?

Chocolate garlic ice cream. We had the pleasure of attending the Gilroy Garlic Festival one year, and tasted many, many amazing things with garlic. Chocolate garlic ice cream was one of them. To my immense surprise, it was better than the vanilla garlic ice cream.

#4. Share a recipe using chocolate.

It won't let me copy the text, but there is an amazing chocolate sauce recipe here.

Wanna play? Or get other awesome chocolate recipes? Check the meme's site here.

Somehow I don't think garlic chocolate ice cream is going to make it's way into my grocer's freezer. haha.

I don't like sweet gooey booze drinks; rather, I LOVE the combo of dark chocolate and certain red wines.

You can get recommendations for pairings at wine shops or maybe online...but it's INCREDIBLE. (And good for your heart!)
