Tuesday I fried some bacon, ate it, and then, when my broccoli was almost steamed I dropped it into the bacon lard and stir-coated it, added black pepper and grated sharp Cheddar...Yum! Going to do the same with green beans, except I may use parm.

The finished product



Out of the total cost of one dinner roughly $18 worth of ingredients I get the roast chicken dinner, chicken noodle soup with tuna fish sandwiches dinner, and left over chicken for sandwiches for lunches \:\)

I also made the 2 pans of Ziti. I wanted the flavors to meld overnight before cooking/delivery. Cooking it yesterday and reheating today would of made it too dry IMO

In order of preference:

donated chocolate
purchased chocolate
stolen chocolate
chocolate picked up off the sidewalk
no chocolate at all

A good, short, and comprehensive article, MRYW, although you're probably cognizant of the health benefits of chocolate. I like pure (as opposed to Nestle's Quick, FI) hot cocoa, no sugar, and made with half and half, for the taste, health benefits/energy/nutrition, and lengthy appetite suppression afforded by healthy, and necessary, saturated fats:

The only chocolate I eat is dark with at least 80% cocoa, but preferably 85% or 90%. I've seen some dark chocolates, like Dove, that still contain sugar as the main ingredient. It didn't list the cocoa content but I'd guess it's the bare minimum as required to be called "dark".

My rule of thumb is if it isn't bitter it's not real "dark".

That's why I like cocoa, as opposed to the adulterated mixes like "Quick"; it's 100% cocoa. With pure cocoa powder, you're not paying for fillers such as milk powder and sugar, so it's the best bang for the buck, chocolate-wise. I can add that stuff myself, if desired.

I've come to enjoy the bitterness of the straight, non-sweetened cocoa, same as I like my black coffee. And, by using half and half, rather than milk, I'm getting less lactose (milk sugar, which milk has quite a bit of), too.

You want the regular stuff (on top), rather than the Dutch-processed, akalized type on the bottom, according to Sisson (more flavanols):

I had it tonight...but I bought two CB yest, one for later...I love it. I pressure cooked it, then simmered carrots, onions, and cabbage in the liquid.

Had a glass of half and half with it, and ice cream over strawberries for dessert.

Sounds right to me.
