    bowl in the kitchen calling my name. There is Bordeaux cherry ice cream and chocolate syrup. Can I give in without feeling guilty?

    I don't know. CAN you? I stopped buying that stuff, because I KNOW I cannot resist at certain times. husband has been notorious over the years for buying tons of stuff like that and I always felt sabotaged.

    Right now he's on his "Jungle" diet and doing pretty well (but it's only been four days!). And although I'm not on the same diet, I am trying to be better about stuff like that. And since I'm going in for a fasting blood test tomorrow, I have to be really good tonight or I KNOW my numbers will be bad... not that I predict they'll be that great anyway.

    For me, the issue is moderation. When I'm feeling "weak" I have a hard time sticking to a reasonable portion of things like Bordeaux cherry ice cream! I haven't figured out yet how to circumvent those moments of weakness... other than my own firm resolve. But time will tell how long that will hold!

    Oh, go eat a small bowl. Life is short.

    I don't buy stuff I shouldn't eat either. Or if I do pick up something especially nummy.....I share it with everyone else so it's eaten up faster. lol

    I bought a gallon of chocolate ice cream last week and sugar cones. (one of my favs) Let's just say I got 1 cone out of the deal. lol But that was enough to get rid of the craving.

    Thankfully I don't crave often. But when I do, I let myself have it.

    Go enjoy your ice cream. :)

    Ok- you only have to tell me once! Since it's so late here and gcvmom has pegged on my guilt a little, I will get a small bowl. It's a good thing I don't have any brownies or chocolate cake to stick on the bottom!

    "Small" is a subjective term, right?

    3 scoops. Two little bites (minus the chocolate) went to the dogs.

    I have a feeling that I did, KTMom! This is what happens when I eat dinner early!

    Oh my. Of course you can!!! I hope you ate it by now and it's still not calling you name in a melty glob from the counter.

    I made a blueberry tart last night (with the help of easy child). It was delish and the perfect size. There will be no leftovers, that is for sure. It was so easy, I can't wait to make another to bring to a summer bbq or just for me.
