Sweet Like a Lemon

Like a mini lemon cake that is... :o)

The other day I was shopping at Costco, and I felt like something sweet. I walked by the baked goods section and saw a beautiful box of mini lemon cakes. They just screamed my name, so I "had" to buy them... The box said they were "natural" (which doesn't really mean anything). The ingredient list was not too bad and there was no saturated fat.

However, the problem was that there were 32 mini cakes in the box! Yes, 32. So I knew that I had to come up with a plan, or I would be in trouble. I started by making sure I was truly tasting and enjoying the cakes. I was mindful when I ate the first one and realized that I was satisfied with just one. I had three more over the next few days. What did I do with the other cakes you ask:
  • Hubby and the teenager had some
  • I sent some with hubby to work
  • I served some to friends
  • I froze some (not sure yet if they'll survive it...)
Questions: Do you ever end up with too much tempting food in the house? What do you do when you have too much tempting food in the house?

Be well,
