point one: feeling a little desperate that there are "no" snacks in the house.
point two: my fridge is full of apricots, nectarines, grapes, watermelon and rockmelon.
there's even an unopened block of chocolate, in there since long before Christmas.
point three: so what's the problem? I could just eat fruit, right?
Well, yes. I could.
But my mouth is craving the sweetness, the soft textures and yummy flavours of doughnuts from the Gourmet Glaze (The Holey Doughnut Company) shop in the city, (similar, but better doughnuts than Krispy Kreme).
My mouth is craving the mince pies that I make and eat every Christmas.
I know better than to give in to my mouth, this is my taste buds talking, not my stomach.
If I was truly hungry I would be eating the fruit. Or cooking dinner.
I eventually stood over the sink eating two nectarines. Why over the sink? To catch the drips of course.
I go through this every January, those mince pies.....oh, they call to me!
But they are Christmas food and by February I'll be over the wanting of them.
The doughnuts are easy enough to resist, there is only one shop, it's all the way into the city and they are $3 each!
