so I recently went on a diet. a crazy diet. where you get to eat nothing that is fun and do nothing that is fun. it’s crazy strict and makes me stop drinking alcohol and coffee – which i believe is slowly killing me.
but i’m losing weight. so i’ll stop bitching.
i’ve discovered that cocktailing really dominated my free time (believe it or not). and now that i’m not doing that, and i’m caught up on all the crap tv that i watch, and sometimes the book i’m reading starts to bore me – i find myself itching to find something to do.
surprisingly…i’ve turned to cooking and/or baking (depending on my mood).
i know. it makes no sense.
i don’t eat anything that i make. and i don’t have to worry about it being in the house for too long because lincoln horks it down like a swine. so i’m good.
but i’ll get to the point. last night, in the fair city of okauchee, the power went out. which dashed my plans to make dinner and dessert. i found myself in quite the predicament. i had NO diet food cooked up and was at a loss. lincoln and B suggested we go to the bar. ugh.
the bar is my Mecca.
but i stayed strong. i did go. and while i watched lincoln and B cram fries and various greasy meats down their gullet i enjoyed a measly salad with no dressing and a tiny piece of grilled chicken.
and water. a lot of water.
but Lincoln and B thought it would be a good idea to order dessert:
but then WE Energies called. so i left. to go home and make these:
unusual. i know. i’m only know they were somewhat delicious because lincoln did hork one down. and so did my co-workers.
score one for the good guys.
thanks to Jenna at Recipe Diaries for the recipe and who has officially got me hooked on her blog.
