A Fine August Day for.... Cookie Madness.


image


I have a sudden, insane craving for cookies. Cookies! I didn’t have one until I walked by a vending machine that contained bags of cookies, ohhh delicious cookies… m&m cookies to be exact. Yum… One of my favs!

No, I did not buy the cookies.

I’m craving them like crazy now though. m&m, chocolate chip, chocolate peanut butter chip, oatmeal raisin… I make these super yummy sugar cookie jewels (on the baking m&m package). They have this fantastic sugary, buttery flavor. Seriously my mouth is watering right now.

Luckily, I do not have cookies in my house. In fact I have nothing in this house that’s even close. I’m thankful for that. I know that I will not be rummaging through the cupboards and refrigerator trying to find an acceptable substitute for the cookies. It’s hard to try to satisfy a craving when there’s nothing that’s a close second laying around.

Moments like these are why I do not buy or keep junk food in my house. It’s too easy (for me) to eat junk…. Especially times like now when I’m suddenly craving something.  My self-control weakens when I crave something. My solution works for me. I can’t give-in and eat it if it’s not here.

Warm, gooey, sugary goodness….That’s what I’m craving. The best part? I’m typically more of a salty snack person than a sweets person. I guess it’s just time for a sweets craving.

ME. WANT. COOOOOOKIE.

My pal Cookie Monster would be sadly disappointed with the lack of cookies in this house.

Luckily cravings are just cravings and they go away. Without. Being. Fulfilled. In fact in the time that I wrote this, my craving is gone. I’ve sipped on some water and content; 100% satisfied.

HA! Take that, nasty craving parasite, I beat you.

Me: 1, Craving: 0.

XOXO
