I like my sweets. I wish I didn’t.
Even though most of the treats I eat are made with the good stuff (whole wheat flour/natural sugars), I still have to be really careful that I don’t eat too many sweets.
Because I LOVE them.
My husband, on the other hand would rather eat seconds or thirds of our main dish than to finish his meal off with something sweet. Often, he’ll say, “Well….I’m gonna have me some dessert” while he reaches over to scoop another spoonful of enchiladas onto his plate.
The boys gave him a Snicker bar with almonds for Christmas. He still hasn’t eaten it. I think he’s saving it for a special occasion. Like next Christmas perhaps? I would have eaten mine before I finished opening my stocking stuffers. Nothing says Christmas morning like a mom with nougat stuck to her chin.
Kristy’s comment on my Butterscotch Bar post got me to thinking. She wrote: “Okay, here’s a good afternoon snack for my kiddos (and me!) to munch on! Can’t wait to try them. I REALLY like the fact that you seem to have a sweet tooth, like me!!”
So yeah, I have a sweet tooth. A mouth full of ’em actually.
How about you? Are you a desserty kinda person…or would you rather skip the sweets and have another round of the main course?
