No Chocolate for 40 Days and 40 Nights

That's my Jesus promise this year. No chocolate chip cookies, no hot cocoa, no brownies, no truffles, no chocolate cake - and my birthday is two weeks away! (that's ok, carrot cake is my favorite cake) anyone got a great recipe for carrot cake?

Last year I gave up bread. That was in two words twice. FRIGGIN HARD. Damn It.

I briefly, oh, ever so briefly thought about giving up alcohol for Lent, but upon deep introspection realized that was a terrible idea. I mean, maybe not as terrible as shaving my head and getting two tatoos in one night, but terrible none the less, and probably laced with unforseen ramifications.

So that's it. Be preapred for posts that will all be SANS CHOCOLATE for 40 days people.

I've given up chocolate in the past. It's hard! I tried the alcohol thing one year too - foolish when St. Patty's Day is during Lent! good luck!

You're a braver woman than I. Be strong, my child.

Pulling a Sinnead O'Conner clone wouldn't do a person any good. lol

I'd love you to try the Brazilian carrot cake I posted here:

Maybe not for your birthday, but for a regular day - and you can replace the chocolate icing with a simple orange or lemon glaze with great results.

Good luck!
