Just got back from a hilarious and interesting adventure with my friend Ann in Austin. Although I had not planned on it, I decided to embark on a little mole expedition by tasting it every chance I could get. I'm intrigued by its deeply layered flavor -- savory but with chocolate and cinnamon. I think I'll do some experimenting by making my own this weekend with some Mexican chocolate that my brother sent to me.
In the meantime, here's a chocolate-related nugget that I overheard today:
Friend #1: (while eating a Hershey's Kiss)…I love all the foods that
begin with a ch….chocolate, cherries, cheese....
Friend #2: Chianti?
Friend #1: Yes….(pause)….ciabatta…(pause)...Okay, that’s a ci, but even so.
