Diet o’clock 14th of November

The streak continues

So after confessing to having a bad month I girded my loins, did a healthy shop, planned my meals meticulously and then prompty ate most of a bloody cake again.

This was no accidental cake though, no slip of the tongue, no unintentional mountain of chocolate goodness, this was a cake of my own making.  One minute I am wondering what ingrediants I have in the pantry and the next minute its an avalance of eggs, sugar, butter and a ton of chocolate and caramel which is filling the house with a heady and intoxicating cocoa scent.

I told myself I wouldn’t eat it, just make it, but I am a damned chocolate mouthed liar and the sweet batter was barely mixed before I was shovelling it into my my mouth like a crack whore desperate for a fix.  The whole time I convince myself that this is just for the enjoyment of others but deep down I knew I would end up eating it by the damning light of the fridge in the middle of the night.

By the time the butter cream had been smothered all over it was just too difficult to resist and any slim resistance I might have been holding onto was gone and I succumbed.

God it was good…

Lets try have a better week eh.  I have bought a ton of prunes and seeds and stuff which I am certain cannot be baked into anything pleasant at all.

  1. ohhhh, I know…. I love these lines “but I am a damned chocolate mouthed liar and the sweet batter was barely mixed before I was shovelling it into my my mouth like a crack whore desperate for a fix. ” I’m a chocolate mouthed liar too Michael. ❤

  2. No one describes the need for a sweet fix like you Michael 🙂 I bought white cheddar Cheez-its for Christmas. Decided to open up the box and pour one cupful and close up the box. I kept doing that until I ate the whole damn box to keep them from tempting me later. I gave up salty snacks a long time ago, but I was drawn to those white cheddar Cheez-its like a moth to the flame. And now its done and I wiped the Cheez-it dust from my lips and said “Merry Christmas!” I wouldn’t mind a bite of that cake – it looks delicious.
