Baking cookies last night was a stupid thing to do. I really wanted it to feel more like Christmas with home baked goodies. BIG MISTAKE!! I had it all planned out. I'd eat 2 or 3 as a real treat and then one a day until they were gone. Wrong. I ate 6 before I had to slap my hands to keep them from getting into them and eating them all. I usually don't have a sweat tooth. So I was sure I could handle it. I guess I've found my weakness, home baked cookies. Cakes don't bother me that much and pies don't bother me that much, nor does candy, but home baked cookies, wow. Today has been a little better, I've only had 4, and I just can't make myself throw them away. I just can't! So my plan for tomorrow is, one for breakfast (they are oatmeal cookies after all) and one after supper.
Trivia time: Do you know why you get sleepy after a big turkey dinner? (If so, you can skip this paragraph.) Turkey contains tryptophan. It's an essential amino acid the body can not manufacture. It only comes from food. Tryptophan helps the body produce vitamin B (niacin) which in turn helps the body produce serotonin (a calming agent in the brain). Wonder if they put tryptophan in sleeping agents? If they don't, they should because anyone that has had turkey knows it really calms us down.
Have a good weekend.
