It tastes so darn good that I can't stop eating my cookies. I am not a sweet eater typically, so this is killing me. Guess what I had for breakfast this morning with my coffee? Yep!
Last night I was ready to enjoy a cookie when i realized that would have been my third (as in 3) that day. YIKES! I had to shake myself back to reality. It was TOUGH to deny myself.
I'm hoping that I will eventually get sick of them, but it isn't looking likely today. Sigh! Off to the gym...

(but first, wiping crumbs from my laptop)

Too funny - I avoid making them for that same reason!

You ate 3 in a day, and you're worried? Three cookies makes an appetizer! Followed by the main dish of 3 or 4 more cookies.

HAHAHAHA!!! There was a time when that was possible, but I'm in my 40's now and I swear to all that is sugary sweet, every single calorie morphs at warp speed straight to my thighs...well actually that is only the ones that make it past my hips without a pit stop.

I just thought of a plan. I'm not in the cookie business, but maybe I should be...with ME being the only customer. I will charge myself $5 a cookie.

No, that is somehow flawed. icon_wink.gif

When I started making cookie.. I had to make a LOT more... for me, husband and kids... now, I only make like 2 extras to be sure they are fine icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif
My husband has a BIG sweet tooth but he has seen so much cookies that he can't take it anymore... ahahhahaah

Doesn't this "adult" slow metabolism stuff stink? I have to do twice as much exercise and eat half as much food just to maintain. So, some days I sacrifice real food and just eat cookies and cake!

Just a second! I have a solution! party.gif If we reduce the baking powder in order to prevent spreading, when we eat them shouldn't it in turn reduce the spreading in our thighs? thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

Luv2bake6 - How wonderful of you to sacrifice yourself so as to not let food go to waste. thumbs_up.gif We must all do our civic duty so as to not let too much go into the landfills. Kudos to you for thinking of Mother Earth! (now it sounds as though I am the one drinking the wine!)

I'm sure they will have fun when they will read it in the morning.. spilling their coffee everywhere.. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

luv2bake6 Posted 11 Jun 2010 , 1:48am

While packaging a bunch of cookies onto a tray, i just took one off the tray and ate it. Can you shoot me now? I guess it's a good sign for our cookies if we ourselves can't stop eating them, right? ARGH!!!
What's worse is that it's almost 10 pm and i'm seriously contemplating going downstairs and stealing another off the tray. Do you guys really think a bunch of cellophane, shrinkwrap, and ribbons will stop me?? NOT!!

TracyLH Posted 11 Jun 2010 , 2:07am

I have thought about building a time release safe that activates during school hours so that I will not be able to access the extras that I make for the kids. So far, not much luck with that plan! icon_lol.gif

luv2bake6 Posted 11 Jun 2010 , 2:11am

Send me the prototype, tracy!!

JaeRodriguez Posted 11 Jun 2010 , 10:27am

Pshhh, 3 cookies in a day? I ate around 10 yesterday. LOL I'm still getting up with a 7 week old two times a night and every time I walk down to the kitchen to heat up a bottle I eat 2 cookies! ok maybe I eat 3 don't judge me! icon_biggrin.gif and the sad part is I was on a low fat diet until last week and I only had 6 lbs to lose to be back at my pre pregnancy weight but I got my gall bladder out and started eating everything I couldn't have on the diet anddd I've gained 8 lbs back! UGH Getting old sucks! icon_razz.gif

luddroth Posted 11 Jun 2010 , 10:55am

You guys are hilarious. I finished making a cake at 10pm last night and I was so happy that the design had required me to carve off a couple of big chunks -- so I slathered them with the extra buttercream. I was able to resist them last night, but I'm sure thinking they look like breakfast now!

verono Posted 11 Jun 2010 , 11:21am

Now That my pictures are taken, and the cookies are wrapped.. I can eat the extras for breakfast..!
Tender chocolate cookies with vanilla-almond glace icing.. mmhhh
