Churros con Chocolate: A Salve for a Jealous Heart

Churros con Chocolate

Churros con Chocolate

Some treats are definitely not healthy, but there are times when the most fattening, diet-threatening, artery-clogging snacks are the only thing that can get you out of a blue funk.

Dulcinea‘s Churros con Chocolate are my go-to pick-me-up when the chips are down and jealousy starts gnawing on [what’s left of] my heart.  There’s just something about these crisp, golden fritters deep-fried in olive oil and dipped into an unctuously thick and rich demitasse of Spanish-style hot chocolate.  I can’t quite describe what it is, but I can easily wolf down a five-piece serve of these babies whenever my love life seems shot to hell.

Which is exactly what it appears to be right now, but that’s a story for another day.  😦  In the meantime, I will grab another platter of these and ponder why men prefer women who look as though they’re starving themselves to death over women like me who wouldn’t be out of place on a Rubens canvas.  *sigh*
