Sometimes you have a moment with a movie, lots of boxes and a pound of chocolate that causes all the stars to align and you know you will never forget that night.  Oh wait – you haven’t?  Well let me tell you about mine.  Two years ago my husband and I were moving from Logan to Salt Lake City and had a few days to get it done.  Of course my husband was going to be out of town on business the very days the packing needed to be done so it was all left up to me.  I decided to head on over to Hollywood Video and rent five movies to entertain me while I packed.  
There is nothing worse than moving food so we hadn’t gone to the grocery store in a month.  This particular weekend there was nothing in the kitchen except condiments and a pound of See’s chocolates my grandma had sent us as a gift.  It just so happens that one of the movies I rented was Chocolat with Johnny Depp.  Let me just say that when you watch all the amazing chocolate treats in this movie all you want to do is eat fine chocolates.  And you better believe that’s exactly what I did, a whole box of them.  It was so indulgent of me.  I still laugh at that weekend I spend with Johnny and a pound of chocolate. (Note: I imagine this would make for a great girls night, just learn from my mistake and invite more than yourself, or you will end up eating the whole box alone)
