The Amazing World of the Truffle

A quick one today and all about the delights of a truffle – the chocolate kind! My wife today decided to treat me to some home-made ones and they are very very nice and a touch alcoholic!

I have had these before, a friend of my wife’s made them and they were scrummy and I have had the ones you get in packets but the home-made ones are very different and actually do melt in your mouth. They are almost irresistible (I have to actually sit on my hands to stop myself going to the fridge to get them – they have to be kept there to keep fresh as they have cream as well as the dark chocolate in them)!

I am just at the end of a diet, my millionth attempt to stay below 12 stones (yes I know I shouldn’t be yo-yo dieting and it does get quite dizzy going up and down all the time). So I need to take a more disciplined stance to staying at this weight and not overindulge! Now this may be quite tricky given the time of year but I’ll give it my best shot. I will eat but one truffle a day and maybe two on Christmas day… maybe…

I may have said this before but why is life so cruel as to make food so addictive and so delicious? If you give up smoking then you don’t die, or if you give up alcohol you don’t die, if you give up food, well… you can never go cold turkey! Not that I eat turkey being a vegetarian (and when I wasn’t I did like a bit of cold turkey with some stuffing in a nice wholemeal sandwich… with pickle…).

Ah food! There I go again! You can’t go in any direction of discussion without it coming up! And it’s everywhere in every shape and form; on the television, on billboards, in the cupboard in the fridge… Right that reminds me I have an urge to eat another truffle!

  1. Fight the good fight John….to get the fridge door open. It’s been so long since I saw 12 stone I’ve forgotten what it looks like.

  2. Ah, truffles. My 2nd ex-husband always used to buy them for me for Xmas and Valentines when we were dating. When we were married he said I needed to lose weight. *snerk*

    Hey, I’ve stumbled across the BEST weight loss plan! I’ve lost 30 lbs. since September! Severe and ongoing colitis! Yes, you heard it here first! Since eating the food causes pain and mass consternation, I’m forced to stick with protein shakes, puddings, yogurt and the like.

    Damn it, I want a STEAK… *sigh*
