I am stuffed. My protein packed lunch filled me to the brim and I now feel like its nap time at my desk. But no can do, I have work to do!
I broke into my mid morning snack way early this morning. I’m not sure why, but i just had this sudden urge of hunger that needed to be masked with a Kashi Peanut Butter Granola bar.
Lunch was easy peasy to put together, thanks to some Pork Roast left overs my Dad sent me home with.
The pork made a great sandwich filler, along with some alfalfa sprouts and Annie’s BBQ Sauce.
You can’t go wrong with left overs in sandwich form. Best sandwich ever if you ask me. 🙂
On the side I had two carrots with 1/2 tablespoon of Sabra Hummus.
And since I felt like my lunch needed a third element I peeled a tangerine to bring my lunch over the top.
Even though I was already pretty stuffed from my lunch I had been dying to try one of my Cowgirl Chocolates so I opened the box to just have a sample.
If you are a Food Network Junkie like me, you probably have seen Spicy Chocolates represented on one or more shows that continually circle through the network. They have always intrigued me, but I never found any to sample in the great state of Florida. I guess we’re not really known for our spicy things. 🙂
When FoodBuzz offered the chance to try some I immediately jumped at it to see what I had been missing out on all these years. I was pleasantly surprised to see the small box was filled to capacity with samples.
I’m really awful with surprise anything, so I was grateful to be presented with a color coded chart for what chocolate was what. I decided to play chicken today and went for the Mild: Double Dark Chocolate candy, rather then jumping straight to the extra spicy versions.
The Dark Chocolate was great! It had just a hint of spiciness that I could only feel in the back of my throat. It I wasn’t full from lunch I would have eagerly opened the spicy Dark Chocolate version to compare the levels of heat.
All in all, I think theses chocolates are a great gift idea for those members of your family whom you have no clue what to get for them. I immediately called my Dad after I tried them to let him know about my experience was and he was just as eager to try one myself. My Family Caravan is this weekend so I am going to save the rest of the chocolates for my stop of the caravan. They are going to make a great conversation starter. I mean if you went to someone’s house and heard they had spicy chocolate wouldn’t you be tempted to try it?
I wonder if its too late to purchase some for my White Elephant Gift exchange I have on Christmas Eve? I really think they would be a hit! 🙂
