As a long standing rivalry-tradition, today’s Daily Tarheel had to be printed in dook blue after that bad beat last night :( these wounds are healing slowly…
But check out our editorial cartoon this morning…
And the sky is still Carolina blue–there is no place else I’d rather be :)
On a brighter note, I am headed home to Charlotte for the weekend because I need to pick up a suitcase and some other essentials. Because for my spring break, I will be on one of these…
With some of the best friends a girl could ask for!
We are heading to Turks & Caicos and the Bahamas in 24 days (but, hey, who’s counting?!)! So, this getting-healthy attitude has come just in time to slim down for my bikini!
That being said, I have been craving chocolate like nobody’s business this week. After my caffeine freak-out yesterday, I decided to indulge my chocolate taste buds before the I go nuts and eat an entire bar of chocolate…and have another caffeine catastrophe :)
Now, like I said, bikini season is coming up and I need to keep my options healthy. This is where my love for this great blog comes into play. Chocolate-Covered Katie makes tons of great chocolate and other dessert recipes that will satisfy any sweet tooth, and they won’t threaten your waistline. I made her Brownie Batter Dip a few days ago…and it was chocolate bliss. Even Kyle approved!
Now, looking at this you would not think that there are actually chick peas in here, would you?! This brownie batter dip is made of the same bean that makes hummus, but you’d never know it! It is filled with protein, no added sugar, and rich chocolatey goodness. It basically a girl’s best friend. I will say I had to blend this in the Magic Bullet for a VERY long time. I wanted to make sure all of those chick peas were whipped up so I wouldn’t be eating beans with my brownie batter ;) But long blending time aside, this dip is one of my favs!
Ok peeps, have a good rest of your Thursday!
