No CT results. Chocolate.

The oncologist is in Japan. Which is why we haven't heard anything.

Grr.

Well, while I'm waiting, howsabout some "lighter" recipes that aren't too bad? Both for chocoholics. First, brownies. Simple. Buy any brownie mix and rather than water, oil and egg, mix in a heaping cup of plain, low-fat or fat-free yogurt. Might need to add a bit of water, but I'm sure you know what brownie batter is supposed to look like. Bake as directed. A little tangy, but not bad at all.

Chocolate spread: make some yogurt cheese by draining low-fat plain yogurt in cheesecloth overnight. Mix together some cocoa powder, a bit of granulated sugar (could use Splenda, if you're into that) and hot water to make a thick chocolate syrup. Well, between a syrup and a paste. Mix with some of the yogurt. No, no measurements. You're smart. You can figure out what you like. Eat it heaped up on a graham cracker. Or:

Chocolate no-crust cheesecake: Mix together an egg, some vanilla, and about three big spoonfuls of the chocolate yogurt cheese. Pour in a custard cup or some single-serving thing you have that's oven-proof. Put that in a larger pan that you've poured some water in. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.

Ever think about changing oncologists? This one doesn't seem quite in tune with the feeling side of things...

If you are going to spend your time eating chocolate, you might learn some science (geology) at the same time.
