Well, it’s official...The kids are back at school and my schedule just got a whole lot more packed. With the back to school season has come the return of the inevitable after school lessons and sports which means a LOT of running around for this girl. And that’s, of course, on top of my responsibilities at work, the house and everything else that us harried mamas have on our plates. To say that I look forward to Friday nights and a treat or two is the understatement of the year. After a seemingly endless week filled with school drops offs and pick ups, homework that is clearly created to drive parents crazy, dance class, baseball practice and whatnot, I can think of little else than getting the kids to bed and relaxing on the couch with my honey and an end of the week treat when Friday rolls around...
The hubs and I established our parents only Friday night couch routine during our son’s first year of school and we’re going three years strong with it. Typically on the agenda we have a movie that we’ve been wanting to see or, perhaps, a marathon of whatever show we’re currently binging, a bottle of wine and snacks...There must be snacks! And what treat goes better with a glass of vino than chocolate? I certainly can’t think of one. Back in my younger days that chocolate would probably have been pretty basic, but with age has come a more discerning palette. Haha! I expect big things from my chocolate now, so I was thrilled to discover the Chuao Chocolatier line at CVS. I’m not just talking about a simple sprinkling of sea salt on top of an ordinary old bar guys. I want gourmet level flavor combinations...and Chuao Chocolatier delivers that in spades!
