the biting truth

did you hear that? something is screaming my name...

I stared at the gooey Easter Cadbury eggs today at Walmart. Stared at them long and hard. Really, really, wanted to buy a box. OK, several boxes. I gritted my teeth and kept walking.

I am opening my home to several families for Easter. I don't want anyone to be alone for Easter; I hate being alone on any holiday. Since no one invited us over, we decided to invite others.

So, I'm doing some cooking. I am making lamb since I want to remember the Lamb of God that was slain for my sins. Also, various other goodies.

One of my new favorite desserts is [are you ready for this??] peanut-butter-rice-krispie-treats with melted chocolate on top. Oh. It. Is. So. Good. YUM. I decided I would make it for "the kids" for Easter. The grown ups get peach cobbler [one of my hubby's favorite desserts]. Yeah, yeah, OK. The rice krispie treats are really for me. The kids are just a good excuse.

I have all the ingredients. Not that there are many. But I have them all. The bag of chocolate chips is on the counter. I want to tear it open and eat half the bag. Or, really, I want to make the rice krispie treats. Let's just eat them tonight! But, here's the problem. I know my weakness. I know I am weak. I don't trust myself to only eat one. Or, for that matter, only eat two. I just might eat the entire pan. I have before.

So. I am not making the krispie treats today. I will wait and make them tomorrow. Or, maybe even Sunday after church. The less time I have to snitch the whole pan away, the better.

I ordered two cupcakes and they arrived in the mail last week. I got one for myself, one for my mother to keep as an easter gift. I ate mine... and it was SO HEAVENLY. I tried to freeze my mom's because I thought that since it was frozen, I couldn't eat it when I wanted to, I would have to wait until it thawed. Well, two days later, I have it thawed on the counter. The temptation is too great. Sorry Mom, no cupcake for you. Your willpower surpasses mine and I applaud you for it!

I think you did a great job passing up the gooey Cadbury treats and for waiting to make your rice krispie treats. If I had made them I would have eaten most of them already and blamed the kids.

Good for you passing by the cadbury eggs! Way to go! I passed up all the Easter candy too. It really hard and I admire your willpower! I hope you have a wonderful Easter!
