The Compromise: I took some time away from a full day with Mr. B to drizzle white chocolate and dark chocolate and a sprinkle of Kosher salt over popcorn and dip a few pretzel rods in semi-sweet chocolate (sad story that ends in, I ran out of dark chocolate...I might have ate it all recently...shhh don't tell anyone) to enjoy at a holiday celebration...I think I am becoming obsessed with salty, sweet popcorn yum. Is there a 12 step for this one?... Secretly, I hope not.
The Sweet Reward: After a day long exercise session chasing my toddler and finally getting him to dreamy land, I had a pyrex measuring cup coated in chocolate needing cleaning. Far be it from me the practicallyperfect compromising mother, to leave a dish unwashed....(sarcasm is one of my favorite perfumes) In a moment of inspiration, I poured in milk and microwaved (ooo, didn't expect a green moment in a chocolate post). To reward myself for doing the dishes dish, I am enjoying homemade hot chocolate while I blog....now that is a sweet reward for a compromising mother.
