The Way To The Heart Is Through The Sweet Tooth

Un cuore nel cioccolatoHappy Valentine’s Day, Modern Philosophers!

As we all know, the true way to someone’s heart is via the sweet tooth.  With that in mind, we had a Dessert Bar at work yesterday.

Everyone brought in a dessert, we spread them out on the counter in the Break Room, and people feasted for the entire day.

Sure, we still had to work, but having that little something sweet waiting for us helped make the day pass a little quicker.

Here are some horrible photos I took of the spread.  I blame the blurry photos on my excitement to just dig in…

Desserts 1I was honestly too afraid for my health to dig into this treat.  The label does proclaim that it is Death By Chocolate, and I know enough to heed such warnings!

I was told by many coworkers, who were still all alive the last time I checked, that this was quite the delicious concoction.

Desserts 2This Eclair Cake was out of this world, Modern Philosophers!

It was basically a giant eclair, and it was heavenly.  It’s a fairly simple recipe, so you might want to Google it and give it a shot!

Desserts 3I took this photo for Dani, the office’s Wellness Rep, to prove to her that there were healthy options on the Dessert Bar.

Not only is that a tray of fruit, but those are also strawberries in that big bowl of cream.

Luckily, Dani is off on Fridays, so she wasn’t there to see us all eating in a very unhealthy manner.  She is a very pretty girl, and I’d have hated to see her head explode…

Desserts 4I thought you might all enjoy the irony of the Wellness poster that you can see behind all the treats, Modern Philosophers.

We definitely were all making some unhealthy choices yesterday.  Sorry, Dani!

Desserts 5Look, more fruit!  Although your attention is drawn to the cupcakes and the Valentine’s Day chocolates, there are strawberries and a bag of oranges in this photo.

Can you find them???

Desserts 6My contribution to this spread is in the upper left hand corner.

I brought my world famous homemade apple pie.  I just didn’t have anything to transport it in, so I put it in a Hannaford Bakery box.  Ignore the price tag…

There was a lot of really good food available.  Everyone seemed to enjoy it, and we did manage to still offer some healthy choices.

I still say it was a celebration of Friday the 13th, but my coworkers insist we did this for Valentine’s Day.  Whatever…

Did you do anything at work to celebrate Friday the 13th or Valentine’s Day?

    Happy Valentines Day Austin ! Now that i think of it you must have been out of Christmas cookies lol ! Am celebrating today .

  3. Happy Valentines to you! All those sweets make my teeth ache. None of them are sweet. The fruit looked good, though.
    Friday 13th and today the 14th, I did nada, nothing, zilch. Bah humbug. 😀 But that’s just ME.

  4. Chocolate? Yes, please.

    I did nothing at work to celebrate anything, because I’m retired. But I did celebrate at home the fact that I’m retired. Then I worked by getting my wife a Valentine’s gift. Sigh–work really doesn’t end. There’s always something someone wants you to do.

    Sugar, sugar, sugar—I can’t tolerate all this sugar!…

    P.S., it’s easy to ignore/miss the price tag when all the photos are so blurry. Great Job!
