I like to think that I have a decent amount of willpower in resisting foods that I know I shouldn't be consuming. BUT, there is one item that should NEVER be in my refrigerator & that would be cookie dough that is stored in a tub. We recently finished baking chocolate chip cookies in a tub for my birthday party, but I probably ate a quarter of the tub first! Once it was finished off, I thought I was in the clear. Well, I thought wrong! My wonderful husband decided to buy peanut butter cookie dough from a girl selling it door-to-door! Nooooo! I told myself, "stay cool, Allison, you're a strong person. You can fight through this!"
Wrong again. There I would sit on the couch, reading or surfing the internet, when BAM, I would remember the cookie dough in the fridge. And so my mental battle would begin! "Seriously, you do not need to be eating cookie dough." "You want to lose a few pounds and that will not help." "You'll only feel bad about yourself & regret it afterward." And what would I do? I would flick the little angel that was perched on my right shoulder straight to the floor & walk to the fridge with the devil on my left shoulder celebrating his victory! So, Mike, if you're reading this, NEVER AGAIN BUY COOKIE DOUGH! Unless you're cool with having a 200 pound wife, that is.
My question is? Do any of you have a particular food that you know you should never purchase because you can't resist?
Innocent looking, huh? Don't be fooled!
And so I lose the mental battle again!
