Did you put on weight during the holidays? I did ... but worked at losing it. (All those leg lifts have to be good for something, right?)
And yet ... I feel deprived. I didn't bake up a storm this year.
I did make one batch of sugar cookies, but I used store-bought dough. They were okay, but I learned to my horror afterwards that the frosting I bought had transfats!
So lately I've been thinking a lot about baking a cake. A delicious, lovely cake. I took down not one but about five of my recipe books and couldn't decide. So instead, I went online and looked at cakes. Beautiful cakes. Lovely cakes. FATTENING CAKES.
Isn't this one gorgeous? But it's unlikely I could pull off that kind of decoration. (What? Am I kidding? I'd never in a million YEARS be able to decorate a cake as pretty as that.) But this one ,,, maybe ...
Then again ... I DID do all those leg lifts and kick backs ... do I really want to have done all that for nothing?
*Sigh* At least I can dream about cake while I eat my bowls of lettuce.
How about you? Is dreaming of dessert enough? Or do you need the real thing (too)?
