I had some time to kill yesterday before picking my daughter up from a school activity. I decided I wanted to bake a carrot cake for my birthday but needed some ingredients so thought I'd run to the store. Problem was I had worked Wed night and had only gotten a few hours of sleep and I was hungry...not just a little but full on stomach growling hungry. Lethal combo for shopping. I got to the store and went to the produce isle to get my carrots and then on to grab some applesauce but when I looked up I saw the bakery dept dead ahead. I must have been in a trance or was teleported by aliens because the next thing I knew I was in the bakery isle staring at jumbo muffins. They looked so good and so many to choose from. Then I spied on the corner cinnamon rolls and caramel rolls. I love caramel rolls with pecans, and say...aren't pecans good for you any way? There were also scones and danish and donuts. They were mocking me, tempting me. What would I do. I thought to myself..tomorrow is my birthday, why not? Why bake a sugar-free carrot cake when I can buy a German chocolate cake, that's my favorite after all. I shouldn't have to bake myself a cake. Then something weird and wonderful happened. I proceeded to the check out picking up only a bottle of water as my impulse buy and went home and grabbed some baby carrots and a handful of almonds to munch on it the car on the way to pick up my daughter. A year ago I would have bought several of those tasty treats to take home. I think I might just make it this time! But I will be eating barbeque tonight for my birthday.
