I Caved And Ate Cookies

Brownies are so delicious. The one baked good I find the hardest to resist. Thankfully, I only enjoyed 3 small morsels.

After 13 hours in the kitchen, I wrapped up my holiday bakeorama at 10:00 p.m. last night. I made 4-dozen fudge brownies, 6-dozen lemon ciambelle and 3-dozen pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.  Considering the amount I made, I’m actually proud I only ate 3 brownies and ¼ of a broken ciambelle.

Not too shabby. The left overs – about 7 brownies and 3 ciambelle – went into the trash. Yeah, that’s right. The trash!

The old me would have scarfed them down without hesitation. I wanted to believe I don’t do that anymore…but the temptation…so great.  My husband, sensing my weakness, tossed them out.

I love that man!

Next year, I need to work on finding recipes for healthy treats to avoid temptations.

This little lemon ciambelle is tasty but deadly. The lemon flavored sugary glaze on top is addictive. It's hard to stop at one.

I did breakdown and send my husband out to get me a Five Guys burger — the best burger in the universe.

In my defense, cooking dinner was not an option in my tiny hovel of a kitchen. Yes, I should have ordered a salad. But cravings for Five Guys only comes around twice a year and I find it is best to feed the beast.

No fries (although they are killer too). Just the burger.

Today I’m doing my penance — 90 minutes of cycling and 60 minutes of yoga.

  1. Wow you did a lot better than me!!! Congrats on only those three brownies for the most part. I just kind of let totally loose this weekend. Yikes! Mmmm 5 Guys burgers sound good. Isn’t that the place that has peanuts? I’ve been there once when we were in Montana.
