On this Valentine's Day, I thought it would be interesting to have a say- no- to -sweets-secret! I have a neighbor whose child has school fundraisers using catalogs to buy cookie dough for baking ahead. I bought TWO tubs of choc. chip cookie dough last year and when no one was able to come to the cookie-bake I had scheduled for my child during the holidays,AFTER the holidays when I was cleaning out the freezer and saw the cookie dough,I baked it all and ATE them in 2 wks!~Gained 5 lbs & lost it
So I made a New Year's Resolution not to buy the dough anymore.So when she came around with the fundraiser,I said no,politely ,but my hubby came up with a GREAT IDEA--let the CHILD choose a tub of cookies and DONATE THE $! That way I get to help WITHOUT putting on any weight !!!Works for me!!
