Last month my sister invited me to the Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County (Ohio) Annual Wine and Chocolate Event. This event raises money to help run the animal center and promotes animal adoptions. Over 300 people were in attendance and I’m sure everyone had a great time!
A wide variety of gift baskets (at least 50) were donated for a silent auction.
50/50 drawing (No, we didn’t win.) and raffles for a gift cards and another table full of wines, chocolates, glassware, and fun goodies.
and more food…
and more chocolate.
And the best part was spending the weekend with my sister!
I love sweets. Chocolate in particular.
Two of my favorites are:Hershey’s Nuggets Milk Chocolate with Almonds and Toffee and
5th Avenue candy bars
Too much chocolate and I am S.I.C.K. Big time. Occasionally I over indulge but for the most part I am careful with how much I eat at one time.
That doesn’t mean I can have some chocolate today and none tomorrow. I do not do moderation very well. When I buy chocolate, I ask Mr. Aitch to not to tell me that he’s opened the bag. I will not open a bag of candy but as long as I know there is unsecured chocolate around, I will nibble, nibble, nibble.
Because an open bag is an empty bag.
Or it will be empty very, very soon.
