No Apologies

What’s the one guilty pleasure you have that’s so good, you no longer feel guilty about it?

I am guilty of sooooo many guilty pleasures, but I am not sure that I no longer feel guilty about any of them?

I love my Mountain Dew. I have tried for years to resist the temptations posed by this delicious, thirst-quenching drink. (Yes, I know that it does not really quench my thirst!)  I will painstakingly work to overcome the withdrawal symptoms of removing the drink from my life for several days… even a week… once for even an entire summer vacation. But as soon as I allow myself the mere thought of having a Mountain Dew at a restaurant for a special meal, or as a reward… the liquefied, malicious spirits of the soda god tightens her claws around my heart… Once again, I am in her clutches and bowing to the deities of PepsiCo.

Other guilty pleasures that master me if I am not on guard: candy corn, peanut M&Ms, circus peanuts, chocolate covered donuts, raspberry filled donuts … I suspect that you see the pattern.

The one guilty pleasure that I do not fell inclined to feel guilty about any longer… An All-You-Can-Eat-Breakfast-Bar. I reward myself monthly with this delicacy of breakfast delights.

  • Melted-cheddar-covered-scrambled-eggs with two slices of crisp bacon
  • Straight-from-the-oven homemade biscuits with country sausage gravy
  • Homemade glazed donuts
  • A saucer of mixed freshly sliced fruits
  • Four pancakes and a patty of spiced sausage
  • Two glasses of orange juice and two glasses of grapefruit juice

On good days– Double the order!

After all—This only happens once a month!

  1. Oh. Biscuits. I had forgotten them!!! I love McDonald’s biscuits. Unfortunately, they don’t have them in Mexico. Biscuits, butter and jam. Biscuits and gravy. Biscuits with scrambled eggs, cheese and bacon. I am so hungry thinking of them that I could go cook up a batch of them now. If I had Bisquick or whatever one makes them from. And if I knew how to make them. And if I weren’t so tired right now. Saved by the lazies!!!

      1. Probably. I’m afraid to look, Roger. Inattention can be my friend when it comes to food. I actually choose which aisles to avoid in the grocery story. Especially the treats aisle in Costco.

  2. I always laugh a bit when I read “biscuits with gravy”. One day I’ve got to Google what a “biscuit” in America is 🙂
    (A “biscuit” in the UK is called a “cookie” in the US.)
