I forget to eat.
Yeah, I know; how could someone "forget" to eat? But, seriously, I get so into what I'm doing that, before I know it, it is past 10 and I've eaten nothing for breakfast. Then, I might have something (today I was bad, I had a 100 calorie pack of Pringles) and then forget again to eat later. So, what I've had to eat today are the Pringles and a handful of mixed nuts.
When I'm working down at the site, I don't take lunch (I'd rather put in my time and get out of there). And, I don't want to take the time to microwave something. So, I bring a few "snacks" and eat those. Maybe. The other day, I found a half-eaten oatmeal bar wrapped up in my briefcase.
So, a side benefit is, I'll be losing some weight, it seems. Not necessarily a bad thing.
Speaking of weight, I made one of my ice cream pies for Mr. B for his b-day celebration. I was going to make a cake, but, neither of us would eat more than one slice so it'd just go moldy. I thought about it, and remembered these ice cream pies I made a long time ago. I think before it was popular to have ice cream with a bunch of other stuff in it (candy, cookie dough, etc.)
My ex husband used to call them "Amy's Ice Cream Pies" (I know, not very unusual) and he told me I should market them. Well, I never did (obviously), but, it was fun to make one the other night for Mr. B. They are really easy because all you need is a pre-made graham cracker shell, some sort of ice cream (softened) and whatever you want to throw into it and top it off with. Then, you re-freeze it so it sets and you're good to go.
I made a Heath Bar with Caramel and Fudge Ice Cream Pie because Mr. B loves Heath Bars.
I loaded the vanilla ice cream up with huge chunks of Heath Bar, tons of caramel syrup and fudge syrup. I spread it into the shell, then, topped it with more caramel and Heath Bar crumbles.
The thing is, it was SO rich, we've only had one slice each (The Kid was over so she had a slice, too).
We've got over 1/2 of the pie left.
And, since I keep forgetting to eat, it's just sitting in the freezer. Well, at least it might last longer than a cake.
Anyone want the rest?
