If you have a sweet tooth (or several), you know who you are. This can be a rough season for those of us who have one. Halloween candy....... caramel apples.......pumpkin pie........holiday cookies.......fudge.......oh my!
My best TIP for dealing with your sweet tooth is one that I learned from my good friend LaRyn many moons ago. It's called ONCE A WEEK. Here's how it works:
ONCE A WEEK you get to have a grand dessert. And boy, it can be grand. Not an entire chocolate cake grand, but really really good. Like a piece of cheesecake (aaahhhhh! the shock! the horror!) or a molten chocolate torte or an ice cream bar or a ...... you get it.
Now that you KNOW that ONCE A WEEK you get dessert, it's a lot easier to surpass the OTHER sweet items, like a piece of Halloween candy, or a nibble out of a candy jar. Because you don't want THOSE little things to be your weekly dessert, now do you?
I typically save my dessert for Sunday nights at my in-laws. Except for the times when all us girls get together, and then there is usually dessert involved.
You can now look forward to your ONCE A WEEK dessert. Make it a really GRAND one, huh?
Unless you don't have a sweet tooth and never want dessert. Then I have no words. Except MAN are you missing out!
