All I will say about today is, if I admit how much sugar I ate, you wouldn’t believe it. If you did believe it, I think it would hurt my feelings. So here I sit in my calorie induced coma remembering how great I felt in January when I was sugar free and how it wouldn’t be so bad if I did it again…
Regardless, I did have a lot of fun today. One of the highlights was I got to see my new favorite baby Isabel. She is 6 days old and perfect. It doesn’t hurt that she looks so adorable in the Bananahead Beanie (ravelry link) I made for her.
Her cuteness is almost too much. I am so honored that I get to be one of the first people to know this beautiful girl.
I also was able to visit with Isabel’s parents, Ryan and Teri, tonight and got to bring over some yummy dessert for them. I went to a local restaurant called Steuben’s a couple weeks ago and had this dessert that was unlike anything I had tried before, so yummy, and conceivably easy to duplicate. So I gave it a go.
Basically, this is a caramel apple (used granny smith and melted caramels) rolled in crushed Frosted Flakes, cut up and served with vanilla ice cream, drizzled with chocolate sauce, and sprinkled with berries. Super easy and so delicious. I am pretty proud of my homemade version.
It was really, so very good. Oh sugar, why do you do tempt me so? This dessert at least was worth it. Tomorrow however, I detox.
