brownie temptation...

because we are part of an amazing church community we have been so blessed to have meals every other night or so for a month... lovingly prepared and brought to us by members of the church. i think it is one the hugest blessings as a new mom, or new mom of two, or three etc... i t allows you a little more time to focus on all the new things that need attention during the transition and yet everyone is still fed!
along with a yummy meal we received yesterday we were given a plate of mint fudge brownies. i LOVE all things mint chocolate. i LOVE brownies. why have i not already eaten every single one? because as i sat there for a while w/ my ice cream accompaniment yesterday, and milk today i finally remembered an important word. after eating about one and a half of these crazy rich brownies with no intention of stopping, i remembered--- the law of diminishing returns. i realized that these later bite were not as truly irresistible as the first ones... and if i stop now there will be more for next time when it will be irresistibly delicious again. now if i can start applying this lesson to french fries ;-)

hahahaha, love your reasoning! thank you for the lesson, hope I can learn from you wisdom. I also suffer from not-able-to-stop-myself around french fries :)
