So I’d completely planned on today being a normal Slim-Fast day. Yes, I’d gotten a Babycakes doughnut maker in my gift bag at yesterday’s BJ’s holiday shopping event, but I figured I’d try it out this weekend (I’ve fallen into taking Slim-Fast breaks on weekends – it works as long as those are the only breaks).
However, when I came down to get the kids’ breakfasts and lunches together this morning, it was sitting on the counter, staring at me, saying “Open me – you know you want to!” So I did. And OMG they were good. And easy. The kids loved them. (Of course if my husband is reading this I’m going to get a lot of crap for making them doughnuts for breakfast; I’ll try to distract him with a full sock drawer and clean bathrooms.)
I only made one little batch of doughnut batter, but there are still eight or nine mini doughnuts left. I know I should just throw them down the garbage disposal, but that’s such a waste!
So aside from trying to avoid the doughnuts, I’ll be writing today. Lots of writing. And laundry. And hopefully posting the things I wanted to work on yesterday and never got around to.
Also, today is day 6 of ONE’s 12 Days of Change campaign. Yesterday’s Day 5 post was by Emily McKhann of The Motherhood (who recently went to Africa with ONE!), and today’s action is being announced by Ellen Seidman of Love That Max. I won’t give away what today’s action is, but I will say that I did mine already, and it was fun!
