The gift of sugar
Cookies, it is a well-known fact, will make willpower crumble. Easily.
That’s why it was a case of Good News - Very Bad News when my wife arrived home last week with a large bag filled with an assortment of cookie boxes. The cookies had been a gift and well, I have always heard: “Stuff things from a gift horse in your mouth,” so I did. Often.
I realize that such actions aren’t undertaken in the best interests of health. But, these were good cookies. In all the right flavors — caramel, coconut, chocolate, ginger, almond. Did I mention coconut?
