I got challenged to a cheesecake baking contest tomorrow by one of my coworkers. I'll be making a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake with lemon ganache. I'm pretty confident in my baking prowess, so I 'm not worried about winning the contest... but I am worried about losing my diet tonight when I'm baking.
Licking the bowl clean is a horrible temptation... I have some really good spatulas that should be able to clean the bowl pretty well. Hopefully that will keep me from indulging, since it's only the lickins that tempt me. Once it's in the pan I'm really good at keeping that off-limits. At least until the contest tomorrow! Luckily I won't have to judge, but I'm sure I'll have to taste both entries. I wonder what Phil is bringing?
Also, my dad is coming to visit this weekend, along with my sister, her husband and their two kids. I haven't figured out how I'm going to stay active with company, and eating healthy will be hard, too, especially since my dad and bro-in-law both drink like fish and will expect me to keep up. I'm thinking my progress this week will go down the drain :(
