Brownies Are The Devil

It’s difficult to resist temptation when temptation smells like brownies, and they are right in your kitchen, still in the pan and still warm.  So, a 13 x 9 inch pan of brownies is apparently – according to the package – 20 servings at 170 calories per serving.  Um.  Really?  Because when *we* have brownies at *our* house, a 13 x 9 inch pan is more like 4.5 servings.  😛  Is the nutrition information on the package meant for little green Martians or Hobbits perhaps?  A roughly 1.5 x 1.5 inch brownie might be fine for someone who is 3 feet tall and eats 7 meals a day, but not for >This Chick<.  Seriously.  That and milk.  Can’t have brownies without milk.  Not ONE CUP of milk but an actual GLASS of milk which is more like TWO CUPS.  Ugh.  My point is how am I going to avoid temptation???  I can’t blame “Hubby The Enabler” for this one, either – although he DID mix them up and bake them.

I did manage to say no to hot-dogs, which hubby was frying up for lunch.  😛  That wasn’t so difficult though.

I HAVE to be the one to keep us in line.  If not for me, hubby would eat eggs and bacon, and canned corned beef hash (Heart Attack In A Can) every morning, God Knows What for lunch, and STEAK every night for dinner plus all of the junk food.  So it’s all on my shoulders.  I HAVE to be the one to resist the temptation of the Devil Brownies.  If not, I’m just going gain all of the weight back that I lost last year.  Sigh.
