Chocolate & Fat Tuesday
Today you can indulge in whatever you plan to give up for Lent.
So tell me how you plan to indulge please. I promise not to tell your Priest. Is there a family or regional recipe you plan to make or just a candy bar or truffle you are going to buy?
If you plan to give up chocolate, please let us know how you choose this and how you plan to follow through. Let us offer you support here in The Chocolate Cult.
While we must continue to explore our Sacred Substance here, I want to remind all of us who do not follow Lent traditions of this sort that when you find out what someone is giving up, it is exceptionally rude to eat or drink that in front of them. Offer your support by choosing something else when you go out to eat with your friend who has cut out caffeine or chocolate or red meat. You can eat what you want with other friends or at home but offer your support as you'd hope they'd offer it to you.
I hope to see some comments today and learn more about how Mardi Gras, Lent & Chocolate all connect together for some of our readers.
Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
