Peruvian Hot Chocolate

You’re probably all in suspense as to how my wisdom surgery went. Well I obviously died and am writing this as an intelligent zombie (while snacking on some poor fellows brain tissue *yum*). Hmmm… “Blog of a Zombie.” I bet that would spike my reader stats.

Unfortunately as cool as being the first Incredibly Attractive Blogging Zombie would be. I haven’t reached that status… but I will keep you updated.

The surgery was pain free, but the 48 hours following it, contained a wonderful arrangement of presents including:
An Incredible amount of Blood
Delusional Pain Medications
A strict diet of baby food
A face comparable to a greedy chipmunk
and Pain that could be read on the richter scale

NOW WHO’S HUNGRY!?! (Even thought I got an A in college writing, it would seem I must have skipped the bit about putting the word blood right before a desert recipe. How appetizing.)

When liquids and purees were the only thing I could consume, hot chocolate was always on hand. Not the gross kind you buy in a can and mix with water. Real hot chocolate. Peruvian hot chocolate. Made on the stove with a real bar of chocolate. Yes I am for REAL. I recommend a side of delicious Panetone (recipe coming soon *wink wink*).
