Most people are chocolate lovers… I am not. However, once and awhile my life goes like this:

Mood swings. Chocolate. Cramps. Chocolate. Chocolate. Crying at random TV shows (such as Bones). Chocolate. Cramps. Chocolate.

My intense chocolate craving is usually a pain in my butt. I don’t like chocolate and even though I crave it, I don’t entirely enjoy eating. But on the upside my cravings did allow for me to create this beauty of a dessert. I am not sure what it is or what to call it but it has all the things I wanted to consume yesterday.

“Mummy don’t eat the chickens!”

Arcadia’s nursery have got some baby chicks which the children care for and tend to each day. Today, one of the older kids came in and started kidding around that they would be cooked up and served for lunch next week. The result? Twenty 3 and 4 yr olds crying uncontrollably they were so upset at the thought.

We spend so much time debating whether it’s right to eat meat – intellectually, ethically, environmentally, nutritionally.

We needn’t bother.

Just ask any 3 yr old.
