What is it about cookie dough that makes me think I have to eat it over and over again? I know cookie dough is one of my food addictions. Sometimes I just get it into my head that I have to have some, so off to the grocery store I go to by some Pillsbury Chocolate Chip cookie dough. You know the kind in the blue package with the dough already formed into perfect little bite-sized circles! It may be a memory floating back into my conscientiousness from childhood of licking the beaters when my mom baked homemade chocolate chip cookies that makes the dough so appealing. Or, maybe I just love the feel of that soft dough and the crunch of the mini chocolate chips in my mouth when I bite into one. All I know for sure is that I can't ever eat just one, and once I get started it is sooooooo hard to stop eating the dough day after day after day.
A couple of days ago I was grocery shopping and stood in Wal-Mart next to the cookie dough display for what seemed like an eternity debating whether or not I was going to put a couple of packages in my cart. I am proud to say that I overcame the temptation and walked away without getting any. I knew I had to put an end to this current obsession with cookie dough and this was the first step.
Yesterday, my husband got home from work and called out, "Honey, I got you a treat. Some CD!" I respond, "You bought me a CD?" He says, "No, some cd - cookie dough!" Arghhhhh!
So now I have been eating from this package of cookie dough my husband so lovingly, or so he thought, bought for me. When it is gone, though, that will be it. I can't have cookie dough in the house anymore!
