Things I love - Part 1

I have decided to post a little subject on the things I love just so you can get to know a little more about me. So first up, Chocolate. Now who doesn't like chocolate, not be, I love it but not your ordinary daily milk, have moved up in the world and like the finer dark chocolate, yes I think I am getting old. Anyway my favourite desert for Christmas is Chocolate covered strawberries. I usually do these with all manner of things, I like to use both dark chocolate and white chocolate and I cover some in more chocolate sprinkles, or coconut or slivered almonds which is really nice. Yum Yum need to go to my favourite chocolate shop NOW!!!

Mars Bar Slice

I just have to share this recipe with everyone. This is the best slice ever and I think I am going to make some tonight. If you don't have any Mars Bars am sure you could use Snickers and it would be the same. Let me know if you try.

Mars Bar Slice
3 Mars Bars
90g butter
3 cups rice bubbles
200g melted chocolate (cooking or normal eating chocolate)

Grease and line slice tin with baking paper
Melt Mars Bars with butter and mix with rice bubbles.
Pour mixture into tin.
Melt chocolate and pour over slice.
Let slice set in a cool place (or the fridge).
Remove slice from tin and cut into pieces.

More Valentines Stories to Share

My first serious boyfriend in college decided to cover my dorm room in roses - my roomie let him in while I was in classes. It was supposed to be romantic but I had never had anyone give me flowers before & I sort of freaked out. I ended up sobbing uncontrollably & my poor boyfriend was so confused. Needless to say I spoiled that Valentine's Day!

The worst present - a plaid denim workshirt from an ex-boyfriend. And the wrong size too.The best present - an engagement ring and proposal from my husband. We've been married almost 6 years now.Great giveaway!

I had to be away from my boyfriend for valentines day (and my birthday which is only 2 days earlier) one year, for a sporting event. When I got back to my hotel after a hard tournament, I found a dozen roses waiting for me in my room. Pretty fabulous. =)

This sounds weird but hubby got the oven fixed one year for Valentines. It was sweet because I bitched about it but not very romantic.

OK, so this was when I was 10 years old... I really liked this boy and I gave him a troll doll with a little heart on it... and so he brought it home and his mom FORCED him to give me a gift... and it was a PEN!!!! LOL!! Needless to say, he was not interested in my romantic efforts

Hi everyone this week I will be posting some of the Valentines Days stories to share..... Read on

" My boyfriend and I don't really do anything. One year I forgot and felt bad because he got me a Cadbury Creme Egg and I got him nothing. The next year I made sure I made up for my mistake and got him something nice and he got me nothing!"

"the best gift i've ever received for valentine's was a 3 carat platinum diamond ring.from me. to me. and it was actually diamonique. and not real platinum. from qvc. that was on sale for like 27 bucks.oh yeah."

"A blender - 'nuf said"

"um I am unfortunate, I have never received a valentine's day gift. But this year I think that is going to change"

"I once received a Tweety Bird valentine card with red glitter. The caption and inside read "I tawt I taw a Valentine" "I did! I did taw a Valentine and it's YOU!"I was 29 years old, and this was from the man I had been involved with for years. LOL!The best part - he had also given me a red glittery Tweety Bird Christmas card 2 months earlier...and no, there is no inside Tweety joke in our relationship.I am still confused by it"

Winner Winner Winnner Winner

And the winner is..................................... (drum roll please)......................... is

Marigold with her really very bad Valentines Day Present, I think this is the worst I have ever heard!!!

" I once dated this crazy marine biologist. In retrospect he was a little off, even by my extremely loose standards. Anyone, one year he brought me a dead squid in a vat of formaldehyde for Valentine's Day. Apropos of nothing. He said he saw it and thought of me. Years later, I'm still not quite sure what to make of that"
