one at a time...

I have bit of a sweet tooth.  I believe this was inherited from my mother and fortunately not passed down to my daughter - she's a savory type of girl that one.  Throughout the day, I crave a little something sweet.  I am blaming this on the fact I no longer get carbs because of the no bread, no pasta, no pizza crust, no regular cookies, cake etc. etc.   Okay, I might have always craved a little something sweeth throughout the day.  Admitting the problem is half the battle right?


So, when I feel like a little treat, I go to the freezer and grab about 5 chocolate chips.  They are so small that I feel I'm not really doing any serious damage but I get to satisfy the craving.  Great idea no?  What I'm here to tell you now is......................eventually you will go to the freezer and find an EMPTY bag and know that you alone are responsible for that empty bag.  It all adds up my friends, it really all adds up.  Do you have a sweet tooth?

Not one - but an entire mouth full!
I too keep those Ghiradelli chips on hand for such occasions - but I buy the LARGE ones (78% cacao, I think) and I only eat two or three -but it REALLY does the trick Now, ask your mother about this because it is HER fault that I EVER discovered these - but I have a bag of those little Cadbury mini chocolate eggs here and they are down right addictive! The only thing that saves me is that I actually prefer the dark ones to the milk chocolate - and I haven't been able to find those this year. So, these are reserved for the munchkins. Our neighbor just sent over home made chocolate chip cookies - so I could truly be in some trouble here!
Oh - I got over the empty bag thing a while ago - by always buying the replacement before I ran out and therefore - never stopping to let myself even go THERE! :-D Denial - it's not just a river anymore!

I have an 'almost everything tooth'! By almost I mean my vegetable list isn't very long and my fruit list is almost non-existent. I do eat a lot....... ahem, lots of other foods!

No sweet tooth. Unless you count those glutenated carbs... Then. Yes. All my teeth.

Guilty! I don't do the choc chip thing, I go for the gusto! Midnight choc bars! Yes! Cadbury Mini Eggs! They are now made by Hershey under license from Cadbury and have a different texture and slightly different flavor......I still gorge on them before Easter and buy up what I can before the stores stop carrying them ....... even better, when they are put on sale either just before or after Easter!!!! Stock up time!
