Another slow cooker experiment...

I have never worked my way so methodically through a cookbook. Anyway, we tried another new recipe today - Curious Chicken Chili. It had an interesting mix of ingredients, so we thought it should be good. Alas, we found it a bit bland...just seemed like it was missing something. Ah well, they can't all be winners, right?

The unfortunate result is that I was left wanting something more to eat. I knew that I'd had enough calories, but my taste buds were not satisfied. I tried eating 2 Peek Freans LifeStyle Lemon Crisp cookies, but they aren't exactly bursting with flavor either.

I ended up eating an entire bag of Crispy Minis.

This is something that I know about myself - I'm one of those 'Live to Eat' people, rather than an 'Eat to Live' type. I try to manage it by making sure I keep my taste buds happy with healthy meals. But some days that doesn't work out and obviously I need to work on my response to that.

Still, I feel like I've been doing not too bad overall and I guess I could have done worse than eating a bag of Crispy Minis.

I'm a live to eat:D

It's been a long time since I've had crispy minis, but man are they tasty. I could easily go through a bag a day. BBQ and caramel were my favorites. I'd forgotten all about them!

Every once in awhile we just need a little something extra. As long as you jump right back in the saddle, you'll be fine. My yummy escape was french fries-totally worth it.

Must have been something in the air yesterday.

You definitely could have done worse! I think one whole bag is only like 7 or 8 points or something like that.

I'm totally a live to eat kinda girl. I'm always thinking about my next meal! Right now I'm anxiously watching the clock on my work computer...waiting for my 10:00 snack to arrive!
