I’m just gonna say right now “I LOVE Sweets”. It doesn’t matter what form those tasty treats come in…I’m gonna eat them! And, I’m gonna let you in on a secret… I don’t like to share. So keep your fork on your own plate! My favorite ingredient is chocolate. Slap a layer of that creamy deliciousness on a pie, cake or cookie and I’m in heaven! And don’t even get me started on peanut m&m’s with popcorn…oh my lord, best combo creation EVER!
Did I ever tell you about my conversation with Our Red and the “no dessert challenge”? What on earth?! Save your laughter until later because it is quite hilarious!
For those of you that are just now joining my blog, my precious daughter-in-law has the most beautiful red hair. I’ve mentioned before how Cowboy has a soft spot for red heads. So when she came into our family, he was a goner. Hook, line and sinker….gone! Still not sure how he ended up with me. But that’s another story.
For the the sake of the blog, I choose a “blog name” for each family member. So I thought it befitted my daughter-in-law to be named “Red” in honor of her luscious locks.
Anyhoo, “Red” decided that for one month she was going to challenge herself and NOT eat sweets. When she told me of this challenge, being the supportive mother-in-law that I am, I said the first thing that came to my mind…
RED: Because I’ve been craving too much sugar lately.
ME: And that’s a bad thing??
RED: (this is where the laughter shall commence) It’s only for a month and you should do it with me.
I should do it with her?!
ME: Umm… you’re telling me that for 30 days you’re not eating sweets? AT ALL? Isn’t this something you should give up for Lent?
RED: Well…yes I have given it up for Lent before but I need to get my sugar cravings under control.
ME: Okay, if you can do it, then so can I. I’m in!!
3 days later….
Cowboy walks into the kitchen while I’m starting dinner. He opens the trash receptacle to toss some trash in and pulls out a mini cup of Bluebell ice cream. Okay, that’s a lie, he pulled out 2 mini (very mini) ice cream cups.
COWBOY: Whoa whoa whoa, what do we have here? Are these ice cream cups? I thought you weren’t eating dessert for a month?
ME: Who says those are mine? They could belong to anyone.
COWBOY: I can’t believe you did that! I’m sure gonna hate to tell Red that her mother-in-law cheated on Day 3 of her challenge. And did I see a Hershey’s kiss wrapper also?
ME: Ok, listen up Cowboy- for starters, who can eat only 1 of those tiny cups of ice cream? There’s just enough in there to tick a person off! Worst creation ever! AND…who are you? The dessert natzi?!
’til next Sunday y’all- Tammy
