Sometimes it's the I-don't-give-a-crap appearance. Other times it's the wild look in their eyes. Many times what gives it away is the Crazy Idea. Seems that crazy folk always have a headful of crazy ideas that come spilling out of their flapping gums.
Well, you can be damn sure of one thing, my friends, what I'm about to suggest is NOT a Crazy Idea. It is a fundamental truth of the universe, on par with the mythical grand unification theory. I did not come to this idea easily, nor have I presented it without a near lifetime of evidence supporting it. For the betterment of all mankind, I proudly present the first of Mike's Important Ideas: Nearly All Foods Are Improved By The Addition of Chocolate Chips
Ta dah! So simple! So very true!
Now, I'll admit that not all foods require chocolate. I don't really want chocolate chips on my over-medium eggs, or nestled in my broccoli. So, here are the exceptions to my rule:
- Foods with meats (including eggs and fish)
- Foods with vegetables (including quasi veggies like tomatoes)
- Foods with savory sauces
Bread with chocolate chips? Yum!
Breakfast cereal with chocolate chips? Mmmm!
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with chocolate chips? Yes!!
A bowl of plain pasta? Not so plain now!
Fruits? Man, I cannot believe someone has not genetically engineered apples and bananas to have little chocolate chips in them! This is EASILY a billion dollar market! Come on, Monsanto! My taste buds await.
I want chocolate in my rice, pancakes, and would it kill you to put some chocolate chips in my chocolate bar? So good!
And, frankly, chocolate could be added to a variety of dishes on my exception list. Mole sauce, anyone?
Let's make this happen. It's an Important Idea. Add some chocolate to your foods today.
