Here’s a question for today: who on earth would start Lent the day before Valentines? What were the powers that be thinking?? I mean that’s just cruel. That’s like putting a kid in a toy store and saying they can’t touch anything. As it’s supposed to be, Valentine’s is the carte blanches to eat as much luscious chocolate as you can cram in your mouth, and for some of us, Lent is when we deprive ourselves and work it off. Easy, straightforward, doable. But this? This is an unusual form of punishment. Like boot camp or any episode of Glee after Season 2. So my gift to you this “Lentines” is Canadian Living’s awesome recipe for Chocolate Fondue. If you use only dark chocolate, you get the anti-oxidants, plus dipping fruit will at least let you pretend you’re being uber healthy!
