A few months ago I told you all that I would be shredding regularly and promised myself that I would get back into shape?
Yeah that plan has pretty much fallen through.
I was doing well for awhile, but then…well..laziness pretty much won out as did lack of self discipline. The cooler weather has also turned me into a bottom less pit of carbs and sugar. When I’m not indulging, I’m thinking about indulging, particularly with rich desserts. In fact, just last night I had the strangest dream that I was at Krispy Kreme‘s. There aren’t any Krispy Kremes where I live, and yet last night there I was, stuffing my craw with cream filled donuts:
Dunkin’ Donuts used to sell cream filled, but then stopped, maybe because they were killing all their customers with extra sugary lardy goodness.
I’ll eat a sugary cream filled donut any day, but to assuage my guilt and cravings at the same time, I have started making a strawberry shortcake type dessert. Fewer calories and no public shame. Woo! Just gather these ingredients (plus vanilla extract):
Orange juice, strawberries, cornstarch, sugar and angel food cake.
Pour some juice (about 1/4 cup), sugar (as much as you want, though less is obviously better) and 1/2 tsp vanilla into a pot and turn on the heat:
..then add a few tsps of cornstarch, stir, then chuck in a bunch of strawberries and mash, mash mash!:
Turn down heat, simmer for a few minutes and pour this fine creation on top of a slab of angel food cake:
Presto! Strawberry short cake/jam stuff. Yeah. Strawberries are out of season, so consider this is the one last strawberry treat before you have to stick to apples and pumpkins! (Which are good too, don’t get me wrong!)
One last goodbye to summer and tomorrow I will definitely get back to Jillian Michaels punishing workouts. Definitely.
