Daily Joy



My eyes are opened of late to the simple pleasures I am afforded. Today was delight in the form of dark chocolate on my bedside table, fetched by a beloved husband - an unopened bar, at that! Between three and four every day, one square of that bittersweet goodness is all I need for an energy boost until dinner is on the table.

Sixty percent is mine - what's your dark chocolate number?

I hate to be difficult to start things out, but I don't like dark chocolate. I'll take the white chocolate, with whatever food coloring you want to add, heads and shoulders over the dark. yum yum. But you do have a sweet hubby.

As I said, sorry to be difficult.:)

Andrea said...

I'm a milk chocolate kind of gal, but I do like some dark chocolate dipped in coffee..mmmm

Stacey said...

Yes!!! 60% is perfect for me! I love that it has a touch of the bitterness removed... yumm-O!!!!

Oh, and is that a Mitford book I spy?? I am finishing "These High Green Hills" today and have the next TWO on hold at the library!!!

Staci said...

I LOVE dark chocolate. MMMMMMM!!!!

Alycia said...

I love dark chocolate too! Yum!! Blessings and prayers for you.

Stacy said...

What a sweet man, leaving choclate by your bedside table. :)

I prefer milk choclate, myself. But when I make chocolate mousse, I do use those bars-- 70 or 80%. MMMMMM!

Oh, Mark and I love dark chocolate... the darker, the better. I, too, love a square in the afternoon to give me the boost I need.

Sixty percent for me, too!! Although, we have found 70% a few times too.

Your hubby is so sweet!

Oh Yes! Mitford, chocolate and the wonderful husband who brought it to you..what else could you ask for? Praise God.

Tammy said...

All chocolate is amazing and great therapy, if you ask me. I do believe chocolate will be at the marriage supper of the Lamb and it will taste better than anything we've had here and be 100% Fat Free. :)

Erna said...

Milk chocolate for me. I'll have to try 60% though and see if that works for the bitterness factor. Hmmm! How sweet of your hubby to leave an unopened bar out just for you! :0) Dark chocolate is good for you . . . I'll have to try and get into eating it a bit more. ;0)

Miriam said...

Oh, I'm more of a milk chocolate fan too. And I'm afraid that if there was a bar of either milk or dark chocolate at my bedside, it wouldn't last very long - I'm so impressed: one square at a time! :)

I'm a dark chocolate girl. Dark chocolate and homemade marshmallows make the best smores.

70%. Used to be 85%, but I defer to Husband on this one and come out with a sweeter deal. Pun intended.

Beverly said...

Milk or white chocolate for me! But I do love Mitford ;-)

Amy said...

Oh, how wonderful! I can relate to this daily joy!

ps I like any kind of chocolate:)

Kate said...

I am a Ghiradelli girl, as well. But, I get the big bag of Ghiradelli dark chocolate chips at Sam's Wholesale. I eat 1-2 per hour every day!! Plus, I can use them to make cookies on the weekends. The recipe on the back of the bag is THE BEST! Chocolate can make everything better after a long hard day!

I'm sorry sweet friends, but I cannot abide milk chocolate at all. I'm with Elise...dark chocolate, the darker the better. I love it 72% or above. I can find a bar in my health food section that has 80%!! Love that.

Praying for you now, Elise.

Hi Elise!
Daily Chocolate is also a JOY of mine!
Are you all moved and settled?

What a sweet husband to bring you a favorite chocolate bar. I'm a fan of milk chocolate, love rolos and kit kats. Enjoy!

Rebeca said...

I'm stepping in a bit late on this one, and it's obviously a subject everyone has something to say about! I find 60% is about perfect; my husband likes 72%. And I too, go for a square nearly every afternoon!
I'm going to keep my eyes open for that Tasha Tudor book you wrote about. It looks lovely!
Still praying for you,
Rebeca
