I wanted to be funny today.  To dazzle you with my wit and humour.  Unfortunately, I’m overcome with cravings and had something else entirely on my mind.  So, I decided to forego the  23 Things You Never Want To Hear While Having Sex With Someone, and bypass the The 23 All-Time Best Ways Your Faithful Narrator Has Embarrassed Herself In Public and bring you, instead:


The Top 23 Things I Would Eat Right Now If It Weren’t Lent**:

  1. Ricotta filled canoli from San Remo’s Bakery in Kensington, CT
  2. Ricciarelli (Italian almond cookies) from San Remo’s
  3. Chocolate Macarons from Mrs. London’s in Saratoga Springs, NY

  1. 1/2 cup granulated sugar hmmm? I think one best steer right clear of you once Lent is over. You be bouncing off the walls, the street, the sidewalks, the buildings and perhaps even the moon! Love this! So fun!

    • Yep. I gave up all sweet things and desserts. Which is a big deal. I kind of run on dessert. I’ve realized through this Lenten season how really and truly addicted I am to sweets. I could have chosen just candy, or just pie, or just cake, but I would have filled the whole with one of the other things that I didn’t choose, and that defeats the whole purpose. So, in the interest of being true to the effort, it all went. Only a little bit longer until the ‘Ose Orgy!
