So Much Chocolate!

I wasn’t going to do it … I wasn’t going to go down to the Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival … And if I did, I certainly wasn’t going to pay the $20 to get the fifteen samples of various delicious chocolate related treats. But then I found out that one of my favorite local bands, Bag of Toys, was putting on a free show down there, and I really didn’t have any good excuse not to go. And once I was there, I didn’t really have any good excuse (make that any decent will power) to avoid the chocolate.

It was fabulous. It was a beautiful day out, and the setting was superb. You can’t beat gorgeous brick buildings on the edge of the bay on a mostly sunny but not at all hot kind of day. Unless you add music and chocolate. I split my samples with two friends, and between us we tasted nearly everything that was there. Chocolate covered strawberries, amazing apricot cakes, spicy cocoa truffles … When we ran out of the ability to put any more chocolate at all in to our greedy mouths, we made our way to the Ghirardelli table and took home samples of their holiday chocolates to go.

And yes, I did it, I ate one of them before I even got home. And I loved it!!
