Today is one of those days I could just eat for the sake of eating. I’m a bottomless pit. Nothing is satisfying my non-hunger. Nothing.
But I committed to food journal until Christmas and that’s exactly what I’m going to do. The good, the bad and the ugly.
The day started with a simple pear. It was the only thing I could grab while feeding a baby and shuffling a 1st grader off to school.
Once he was on the bus I took a minute to eat something more substantial. Leftover veggie eggs from yesterday.
After volunteering at School and before heading out to run errands I had a bowl of homemade turkey soup. It was too early for lunch but I didn’t want to be tempted to hit a fast food place while out.
When I got home I had a real lunch. The leftover Roasted Brussels Sprouts from Thanksgiving…
and the leftover turkey quesadilla from yesterday.
By late afternoon I was hunting for a snack and that’s when I saw them.
Darn truffles in my pantry. I had 2.
Then I sat and took too many pictures of the Baby. (Click here for a crawling photo journal)
Dinner was "Roni’s Turkey Surprise"
Basically the end of the leftover turkey with gravy, a can of corn, mixed with egg noodles. The boys loved it!
After dinner the snack attack was already starting. I decided to have a some hot chocolate and I couldn’t resist adding a splash of Irish Cream. My new obsession.
As I was sipping the hot cocoa an evil thought popped into my head. How much better would this be with a cookie or two? Then I remembered the Mother-in-Law brought these for Thanksgiving.
DO NOT BUY THEM.
I kid, but they are super good. Very reminiscent of a fudge stripe cookie and you know how I feel about them.
At this point the flood gates were open. I ate 6.
Then I returned to the pantry and knocked off the last 3 truffles. ugh.
EVEN with a chocolate overload tummy ache I STILL WANTED TO EAT!
Why? Why? WHY?
I don’t know and I don’t feel like psychoanalyzing myself. It is what it is. These things happen. Sometimes you cut your losses and pop some popcorn
And that’s exactly what I did.
