Chips AHoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Monday, July 4, 2011

Hot, fresh, crunchy potato chips! I just couldn't get enough of them yesterday. It wasn't a huge binge, but a binge all the same. I had the best of intentions, but as we all know, best intentions don't melt the kilos away. Wishing doesn't make it happen.

We went to the shops yesterday and headed to the food court for lunch. After getting the kids and hubby settled with their food I went off to Sumo Salad and got myself a nice vegetable soup with a water all for the bargain price of $11.50. Well, $11.50 for soup and water isn't really a bargain at all, more like a rip-off.

Sumo Salad only have 2 types of vege soup - pumpkin or lentil. Yesterday's choice was lentil and vegetable which I have had a few times before and always enjoyed. Yesterday I noticed that there were quite a few more chunks of veges in it suggesting that the recipe is new. At this point I was hungry and anxious to dive into my 'new' soup to try it out. It tasted like crud! I could have been eating this................

*The Moldy Cheese Monster*

Yes, I am afraid to say that I would have enjoyed eating a moldy cheese monster over the 'new recipe' soup.

My husband told me to take it back, but I just can't do things like that. My sister on the other hand, she is a shocker. She will stand at the counter and taste 20 samples of ice-cream and then say "no thanks" and walk away - it is sooooo embarrassing. I am not kidding when I say 20 samples, it's probably even more. Besides, I don't think you can take something back just because you don't like it.

Anyhoooooo, hubby had Oporto's and I am ashamed to say it, but I stole his chips and ate them. I am thankful that he only got the regular size. They were so yummy and I was hungry and I couldn't help myself and after that I went and got myself a hot chocolate. I know a hot chocolate every now and then isn't too bad, especially when made with skinny milk, but I always have to add a shot of caramel syrup which adds to the calories. Then last night before I went to bed, I made myself a hot chocolate and had a Monte Carlo and a Shortbread Cream Biscuit. The good news is that I stopped myself at only 1 of each.

The worst thing about the hot chocolate is that they are a huge danger for me. I had to wean myself off of them last year cause it got to the point where I was having them every single time I left the house. It became a really bad habit for me and I had to give them up cold turkey.

Binge over and done with and back to a new day today with no hot chips or hot chocolates.

    I was out yesterday and 'was being good' by ordering the soup with a scone. EWWW! Potato and corn chowder that was a complete let down. boo hoo
    It is nice to get out for a meal but such a bummer when it doesn't feel like a treat because the taste just sucks!

    Hahaha, the moldy cheese monster is super cute! I used to be obsessed with shortbread but obviously can't eat them anymore since I was diagnosed with coeliac disease. That's great since I could eat entire packages of them! I'm always looking for nice recipes to make my own gluten free though....
