My fat jeans were tight over Thanksgiving so I have made a concerted effort to cut back the last week or so. For me, that means cutting out the bread and dairy (not the alcohol, heaven forbid!). I haven't been perfect (my coffee needs milk), and I do love a bowl of Cheerios (yellow box, thankyouverymuch). We also just might have made muffins two days ago (actually, I haven't eaten one, but I think there might be one in my future). And I seem to be overindulging in parentheses.
I am also overindulging in dessert dreaming. Here are some of my daydreams:
This is my idea of a nearly perfect dessert (the white chocolate in that filling is making me a little nervous). I have an extremely high tolerance for rich chocolate (please get that milk chocolate away from me), but high standards for what can be mixed in (fruit and nuts, gag me with a spoon!). Mint and coffee make the cut. I've made a similar dessert, and these looks tantalizing.
My very favorite cookie in the world is not one I have a photo of. It's a mocha cookie you pipe out with a cookie press and then dip in melted chocolate on the ends. It is the.best.thing.ever. Silly people sprinkle nuts on the melted chocolate; those who know better do not.
Finally, I know this will be waiting for me in my parents' freezer when we arrive, even if I didn't write a post about it that my father will read.
How about you? Are you trying to keep the weight down until later this month, or are you already indulging?
