Friday chocolate

I'm not sure how long I can keep up with this. I'm running out of the easy and simple recipes.

Below is a low-carb recipe (not for those in their first two weeks of the South Beach Diet). I tried this miserable diet and failed. However, I have cut way back on my carbs except those found in chocolate, and fewer carbs do result in weight loss. Btw, I did try the hideous no-carb chocolate sold at Trader Joe's. Nope. Not worth the calories or the cost.

Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries

Melt semi-sweet chocolate.

Dip strawberries in them. (We still have strawberries out here if you visit the local farmers' markets).

Sprinkle with bits of pistachios or almonds.

Let the chocolate harden.
