eat-in update

i've found that eating-in for the entire month of january is harder than i thought.  and i am not referencing the strength of my will power - even though i am very, very weak!  

this is my confession time.  i have eaten out 3 times.  two, i feel, were unavoidable due to work.  we left lake auroa at 11 in the morning last week.  i thought we would leave right after lunch or breakfast, so no big deal to wait.  but 11!  i was so hungry and my car stopped to eat.  i knew we were still a good two hours from home and i was both ready for food and out of snacks (i'd shared during the week).  then my entire division went out for a lunch (something we only do once or twice a year!) this week.  

now this last one, this one i claim as weakness.  i could have chosen to not eat.  a friend from college was visiting and so about 15 of us went out with her and went to pizza hut.  oh pizza.  i even sprung for breadsticks.  i think that was guilt.  perhaps i will go three days into february to make up for it!


in other news, this cake is my current pride and joy.  i made this with my friend mary thursday night.  it was a birthday cake for an avocado lover - it's an avocado shaped cake!!

Oh Yeah! Making that cake was a ton of fun, I think we ate while we made/decorated-which made it REALLY fun!!

That cake is fabulous! Now I am going to have to go have something sweet to eat...

I think the hardest thing about eating in all the time is the constant dishes... The eating/cooking isn't so hard- it is the clean up!
