Let’s talk about disappointment.
Someone was disappointed that it wasn’t her birthday.
Hint: It wasn’t me.
Someone was disappointed that this isn’t mom-approved preschool attire.
Hint: I was that mom.
Someone was really disappointed that the Broncos lost the Super Bowl.
No picture necessary.
Hint: That was me.
Someone made an absolutely disgusting dip for the Super Bowl veggie tray.
Hint: Me again.
You’ll note that the tray above doesn’t boast a dip of any sort. That’s because what I made was so awful. I had the right idea but made a fatal mistake using two large cloves of garlic. So strong. So bitter. So disappointing.
The dip had a silken tofu base. I had already wasted 1/2 a package of tofu, what to do with the other half?
And after all the disappointment of the weekend, this healthy vegan chocolate mousse was a pleasant surprise!
Silken tofu, melted dark chocolate, cocoa powder and vanilla. That’s it. After a few hours in the fridge, it was thick and delicious.
Miss Rae will be 3 soon enough.
Someday J Man will have a fully developed “clothing filter”.
And out of the depths of disappointment, this delicious recipe was born.
Now, to avoid Facebook and my Seahawks obsessed friends for the next six weeks…
