A Sweet Indulgence

For Christmas 2014, one of hubby's coworkers gave him a small bag of William-Sonoma peppermint bark. I was very interested to try it because I had heard for years how wonderful it is. OMG! I was in love at first bite. And, lucky me, hubby hates peppermint so the entire bag was all mine.

So this year, although I've drastically reduced my sugar intake, I decided to splurge on a tin of William-Sonoma peppermint bark during a short sale in early December. But I refrained from opening it until today. With our food inventory back to our healthy normal, this afternoon I finally cracked the lid. Then, using my kitchen scale, I carefully measured out one 1.5 ounce portion and hoped it would be as good as I remembered. It absolutely was!

There's a total of 16 ounces in one tin, so that means I can indulge roughly 10 more days, or more with smaller portions. A year ago I doubt I would have limited myself. But, after nine months of counting calories and limiting sweets, I know I will with no problem.

And yet another new holiday tradition begins!
