Sleep the pain away

Before my stomach and I decided to wage war, I had a delicious morning making these candy bar bites. Again, Elana,  you are a genius.  (Jalene gave me these heart-shaped pans, aren’t they cute? We’re going to make a big love cake for a certain February holiday that’s coming up.)

They’re basically chocolate stuffed with chopped pecans and almond butter.  Oh my sweet lordy.

I obviously had to taste one (or two)… you’re never supposed to try out new recipes on other people before you know what they taste like! I break that rule quite often.

So, here’s where the trouble started.  I think it was a combination of things… maybe the Snobby Joes had finally had enough, maybe I had a chocolate hangover, or that Jalene was sick, or my new contact prescription… anyway, this combination (romaine, Snobby Joe, chickpeas and cottage cheese) was lethal.

Just looking at it brings back bad memories.

I’m not going to get graphic about it, but let’s just say this meal made its presence very well known.  Ugh. I slept the afternoon away and am feeling a little better, but I’m going to take it easy on dinner.  I’m bringing some chocolatey treats to my night class, but hopefully by then I’ll be just fine and dandy.

Have a lovely evening!
