Well Christmas came and went and I did exactly what I told myself I wouldn’t do, but what was unequivocally inevitable… the few days before Christmas festivities began I started executing my long baking list… brownies, of course, along with some Christmas sugar cookies, a homemade cheesy lasagna and a Christmas roast with rosemary potatoes accompanying. As always, I was excited to indulge, confident that I could enjoy some delicious treats without “over-doing it”… because as I say, I eat what I want… but always in moderation. The problem was there was no moderation in sight… or even in the same zip code. I ate cookie after cookie, a brownie sundae followed by an extra helping of potato lasagna– a unique new recipe I cooked up consisting of a bowl of delicious lasagna and potato mixed until it looks like… no other word to describe it other than… goo… but delicious goo! And with 48 hours of no vegetables, no shower (yup 2 days in pjs), and clearly, no shame… its time to kick off my slippers, ditch the sweets, and slip on some nikes!
