Daily Prompt: Sugar, ah Honey, Honey

My one and only vice at this time.  As a borderline diabetic, I’m ashamed of myself as any alcoholic would feel falling off the wagon every time I over indulge and know I do it with some risk.  I have always loved sweets, but mostly just chocolate and ice creams with some kind of fudge or chocolate in it or on it.  For years I kept my cravings under acceptable control.  A piece of chocolate here and there.  A small bowl (or two) of ice cream after dinner in the evening.  Now it’s over the moon due to once I start eating sweets, it’s hard for me to stop.  I started drinking coffee with International Delight French Vanilla which is so delicious on its own and it sets my palate for more sweets like maybe a donut or scone instead of oatmeal, toast or an egg.

Since I’m new in my small town, about two months now, I have already visited a couple local bakeries in the morning if I wake up and feel the need to get out because it’s just too quiet and they have a no noise thing before 8:00 am.  I’m po’ so a buck or two for something sweet is better than forking out four or five dollars for an omlette.

Enjoy the visions of sugar (not plums) dancing on my screen!

Daily Prompt: 32 Flavors and Then Some!

Just found these delicious Breyers Gelato flavors, Tiramisu and Triple Chocolate.  I just used to pass these by in the freezer section purchasing Moose Tracks Ice Cream untill my grocery store had them on sale one week.  Soooo glad I did decide to try them because I can really understand their new commercial now.

Daily Prompt: No Apologies With Ice Cream!

My super guilty pleasure is Moose Tracks Ice Cream and lots of it!

Didn’t used to matter that much when I was younger and ate super healthy all the time and this was about the only fat and sugar in my diet.

I’m trying to cut down to allow for some of the other unhealthy food I now eat and the other day I picked up some natural vanilla ice cream by Breyers instead of my usual.

I had previously purchased some Dove candies that were on sale so I decided to forgo the usual fudge and peanut butter cups that are in Moose Tracks.

Then I got the bright idea to melt some of the dark chocolate candies in some butter and cream for a fudge sauce and split some of the peanut butter candies and throw them into my vanilla ice cream to see if it was close to the real thing.

It was better!

Caramel Deer Traxx

I have only one real vice and that is ice cream.  My favorite is Moosetracks by almost anyone or Michigan Deer Traxx and Caramel Deer Traxx by Hudsonville in Michigan.  The habit I have developed over the years is eating it after bedtime.  I will wake up an hour our two after going to bed and get myself a small bowl which is quite insane since I have already brushed and flossed and even though I rinse with water afterwards, I can just imagine what it is doing to my teeth!  Bad habit that tastes so good!
