Oh God, I heart noodles. Noddles in marinara, noddles in Alfredo, in soy, in meat sauce in most anything (but sweet and sour) just tickles my taste buds. And I've never met a noodle I didn't like. Make 'em a bit soggy to al dente, it doesn't matter I LOVE noodles. Cup of noodles... ramen-level even (though oddles of noodles beats them out) to my prized Yakisoba, I've had all kinds. Blame my old college days for coming up with creative meals on a budget.

So, how was your Easter, Ostara, Bunny Day, and/or Chocolate Day? Mine was low key, with a few chocolates to be had...sadness. The day seemed to be ending on a 'meh' note until I was sent this amusing link. See, I like aliens. No, not in general, but the franchise.

Well, we already know that chocolate is poison incarnate to dogs. We also have heard of the use of said chocolate goodness for currency back in the time of the Aztec Empire. And we ALL are chocolate lovers here. But did you know:
- Chocolate is the food of the gods? No really, Cacao beans come from a tree. This is well known. That tree is a species of the genus Theobroma, which literally translated is ‘food of the gods.’
