Jelly Donut Jam, or "How I lied to my husband's face."

My husband Mark has taught himself a lot about nutrition and healthy living over the last few years. I'm quite proud of him. He lost 25 pounds and has kept it off for years now. He's 6'1" tall and just over 200 pounds. And very handsome to boot. Jeez, I'd better stop before I grab him out of his home office and have my way with him.

OK - I am sort of healthy. I feed my girls organic, gluten free, dairy free, all natural, no artifical anything foods. I bake and cook from scratch for them. For myself? I'm an under-eater. Thank God. I eat mostly healthy - but confess I like my treats.

So today, in celebration that I can open my mouth after oral surgery yesterday I bought two donuts at Porricellis. Yes, TWO. I came home, grabbed my treat and a huge mug of Starbucks and sat down to read the Times.

I'm happily wiping jelly off my fingers when I heard Mark say "Look at the new upside down food pyramid" as he approached the dining room. I shoved my donut bag under The Times. Meanwhile, I have three quarters of a jelly donut jammed into my cheek and am trying not to laugh, spewing coffee and donut bits all over his book. I feigned total interest in the pyramid, like a good wife.

Today I will find out if he reads this blog regularly or not.

I ate a whole can of chocolate covered peanuts last week.

It's hush-hush.

Hope your doughnut was just as delicious!

The irony!! That made me laugh. Upside-down food pyramid! I thought he caught you eating your donut. I didn't expect a literal food pyramid.

I gotta use that when I crave something I know is baaaad for my arteries.

Today, I bought a dozen donuts, and kept half for myself. But I do have an excuse; I had a chance to get to Kane's - the place that makes donuts for Heaven.

Boston Cream, lemon filled, chocolate coconut - how could I choose?

WA- that would be a Solomon-like choice. Impossible. Did you get an old fashioned cake and a jelly filled? And can you send some to CT? :) Yesterday I strutted right PAST all the donuts in the store. The thigh gods were looking out for me.
