A couple of weeks ago I was at the farmers market and there were organic cacao beans...you know...what CHOCOLATE is made from!!!
I will try again. I will not give up. I was so excited in the beginning and took my "step by step" pictures that I decided to post them and my failed attempt.

Back in Wisconsin we were very dedicated to our family walk. Even the snow and bitter cold winds did not deter us from our mile trek everyday before supper. Up until last night we had not taken 1 family walk in Hawaii...why? I think it's been a combination of factors: 1)It gets dark around 6-6:30pm and before we had power that meant we were eating and cleaning up for supper all before the darkness hit...not so easy doing dishes by candlelight. Now we have solar power so this issue has been eliminated. 2)Transition...we're still transitioning, adjusting, moving...the boys started school and that has been a huge adjustment/transition. Now we follow someone else's prescribed homework assignments and strict due dates. 3)Neighborhood Uncertainty. We were VERY comfortable in Wisconsin. We knew our land, street, and neighbors well and there was no fear on our evening stroll. Here we're not so certain of our hood...neighbors here cherish their privacy. We don't want to spook anyone, the Raye Family walks aren't exactly quiet. It's a time for the kids to get their sillies out before we settle down for the evening. It will probably take years for us to feel that same level of comfort that we had in Wisconsin, but we decided last night we were going to get back into our walking rhythm.
