Cookies into the trash

Sunday, June 12, 2011

I am a pastry chef by trade. Every once in a while I have this need to bake at home. My husband is a lover of home made chocolate chip cookies.I had good chocolate chips in the cupboard for more than a month.Yesterday I decided I had to make cookies. So I made them. Bad Bad Bad idea. They were sitting there and I ate two. My husband had not touched a single one. I took them downstairs to his truck.He went out and brought them back upstairs asking what in the ***** did I think I was doing. (he just had his truck detailed and the aroma of chocolate chip cookies was clashing with his macho truck deodorizer thingy).I told him I could not be around them.Please put them in your man cave in a place I can't see them.( I pleaded). Sorry (says he) you'll just have to live with them being around here til I finish eating them. This morning when I got up they were back on the counter in the kitchen. I look them downstairs to the rubbish and threw the bag into the garbage.Good bye cookies. No more baking at home for me!

    It's OK to have cookies now and then. I love to bake, but I can't have stuff sitting around either. Now I individually wrap cookies and muffins and freeze them. That way I can take one out of the freezer and eat it later in the day. It's now a conscious choice instead of a guilt inducing act. Give it a try. This method is also great for mini-quiches - a real time and calorie saver when you rushing around in the morning!

    Way to go --though I'm sure I would have had to had 'just one' before tossing them!...but then again they would not have been out of the oven before the guys had devoured every one of them here!!! LOL

    GREAT Job!

    Hard decision, but one that is easy to see why it had to be made! Way to stand strong on this one when you weren't getting the assistance you requested!!

    That was brave and probably smart to toss them. Hate to see good food go to waste.
