Candy Corn Is The Devil

Posted by Susan on September 29, 2009

The week is moving along nicely. All is smooth at work due to the absence of a disruptive co-worker (she is on vacation ) and I am so grateful for the peace. Work is as busy and as hectic as ever, just without the drama and chaos ! Oh if it could only last forever !

I did really well food-wise today until I hit a little bump in the road when I got home from work ! Take a look at my day ……..


Before Shredding this morning , I had a banana.


I had the best breakfast this morning. Kashi Apple Orchard Granola (another cheap find at BIG LOT”S ). It has dried apple chinks , pecans, raisins, flax seed, and spices .  I had 1/2 c. of it over plain oatmeal. It was filling and incredibly good ! I added a hard boiled egg for some protien and I was good to go.


For an AM snack while at work I had a Kashi Go Lean Crunchy Bar and an apple.


Lunch I kept light today. I knew I was going to end up having a Magic Cookie Bar, that I made for my co-workers so I cut back on the calories. I had a whole grain sandwich thin with a wedge of Laughing Cow Cheese spread inside, and some Wheat Stix .


And then the very best part of lunch ! A Magic Cookie Bar ! My Mom made these for us growing up and I could never find a recipe. I finally found one last year (I googled it , Duh , right?) and have been making them for other people ever since. I don’t make them for myself because I can easily get carried away with these things , and my husband will not touch them ! They are made with condensed milk, coconut, chocolate chips, nuts on a graham cracker crust. They are literally to DIE for ! Some times I add chocolate chips AND butterscotch chips,  or chocolate chips and peanut butter chips, depends on my mood ! I had one, just one. They were a hit because there were only about 4 left out of the 2 dozen I made !

Here comes the bad part ……. I came home and was checking my email when I remembered these :IMG_0153

This cute little Halloween bowl sits near the computer. Every time my husband or I pass by it we take a few, and we take a few , and we take a few ……..This bowl was over flowing on Sunday night ……… I think this cute little bowl is a bad idea  ! Today I came home from work and took a few, and that few turned into a few handfuls. I made a deal with my husband that we will keep the bowl out of my sight , or quit filling it altogether. Thankfully, he is supportive and agreed ! Because of the Candy Corn incident… there will be no dessert tonight. I think I had two night’s worth dessert this afternoon .


Tonight was burger night. I had a turkey burger on a whole grain sandwich thin, some shoe string french fries, and a salad. As I said … dessert because of the Candy Corn incident . I have had more than enough sugar for one day !

I am done with all of my chores extra early tonight so I think I will do some reading and get to bed . Have a great Wednesday !

    Those bars look great. If you want to post a link to the recipe, please do. I need some bake sale ideas for my St. Jude’s fundraising.
    For me, it’s the sugar pumpkins (probably the same thing as candy corn honestly, just a different shape). I love those things.

    I don’t even really like Candy Corn, but if it’s sitting around my hand will go into the jar MULTIPLE times!

    I’ve never tried Candy Corn before… maybe it’s best if I leave it that way! Sometimes ignorance is bliss…. 🙂
