Snap* - a long blog about food, deserts and personal demons

Not too much going on.

I have to work all next week again, so I am trying to plan ahead. I am tired of eating pre-packaged crap.

I am going to make a large pot of wedding soup, chicken, slow cooker oatmeal, and I am not sure what else, but I am going back to mostly whole foods. My body is just happier. I also have a few spaghetti squash I am thinking about cooking up. Not quite sure what to do with those. I could cook the chicken in pasta sauce, then eat it over the squash? Maybe I will just have that as a side dish with the chicken?

Either way, working all the time is not an excuse. This is my last week of crazy hours. I only have 4 extra days scheduled in October. I like all of the extra work. I like the money. Now, if I can stop spending it... haha!

Seriously though, I have been feeling a little off center lately. I have not been taking care of myself the way I should, and have been slipping back into some old habits. I won't exactly mention what those old habits are, but suffice to say they do not have to do with eating or junk food or anything like that. These are much more severe than that. I am not sure what I am going to do. I think it really is time to call that counselor and get an appointment and work out some of these issues.

Here is the thing... this is why I am even mentioning it... I am not perfect. I have more than my fair share of bodies in my back yard, skeletons in my closet and demons in my pocket. I have issues. I hide them well, but I still have them. I am human.

Anyway, I made a decedent, unhealthy desert for my co-workers this weekend. I dubbed it "Chocolate Explosion" but my co-worker said that sounded like the title of a bad "adult" movie, so they renamed it F**kn' A.

2 boxes of instant chocolate pudding
3 cups of milk
1 container of thawed cool whip
1 box of chocolate graham crackers
1 container of chocolate frosting

Prepare pudding with cold milk and add the cool whip. Place a layer of graham crackers in the bottom of a 13x9 pan, then add the pudding mixture. Continue to layer so you end up with a layer of graham crackers on top. Place the container of frosting in the microwave for appx 45 seconds. Then pour it over the top layer of graham crackers and spread evenly. Place in the fridge overnight.

Anyway, I am thinking I either need to go buy myself a new Pandora bead or new panties. New panties always make you feel happy!

I hope everyone has a super Sunday!

    Aw I'm sorry to hear you're having some monsters rearing their ugly heads. Going to a counselor sounds like a good idea, especially if your habits are something dangerous. {And since you said they're worse than eating crap, I'm guessing they probably are...} Therapy sucks {as I have mentioned 928457934857 times}, but maybe the support would help you with your demons, and that would make it worth the process of going through it.

    I hope you have a good Sunday, and I say buy a bead AND new panties. Panties are the best. But so is jewelry!
