four days until Christmas goal of 139.0…
Yesterday…in the spirit of Christmas and baking and the Scandinavian genes that run amok throughout my body…I baked three different kinds of cookies.
Why would anyone desperately (and I do mean desperately) trying to lose weight…bake cookies? Am I completely mad?
Perhaps…or perhaps I am just a mother/grandmother who finds it hard to say NO to requests of this nature…
The cookies were nothing special…just the favorites of my eldest granddaughter, my youngest granddaughter and my only daughter.
And…because I feel it is the responsibility, as matriarch of this tiny family unit, to make sure that what I give them to eat will not…you know…make them sick or kill them…I had to… “taste test”.
Now…as any good or even mediocre cook knows…the “taste test”…is probably the most important step in the cooking process…AND…the most fun.
So yesterday…I thru caution to the wind (as I so often do) and taste tested to oblivion!!
I THOUGHT this morning’s scale encounter would show a weight gain…it surprisingly did NOT…
Has there been some sort of “shapeshifting occurrence” of which I am not aware?
I am very fearful for what today might bring.
Have a nice day…

Taste testing is absolutely essential – all the best chefs do it 😉😁
