I'm desperate for something sweet and naughty to eat.

In my house there is....

No Chocolate.

No Icecream.

No biscuits.

Should I make myself a brown sugar sandwich on white bread?

Ew, no!

No. Sorry.

How about fruit? Dried fruit? Dates? Fruit juice? These all hit the spot for me at times of desperation. original.gif

Make some pancakes and have butter and brown sugar on them!

More delicious and more socially acceptable than a sugar sandwich!

Sounds gross to me, but if it works for you, then go for it!

Raw sugar, not brown ddoh.gif

Had an apple already today, no dried fruit, don't drink fruit juice.

I'm trying to contact DH and tell him I want homemade pizza for dinner.  If there's a chance of uber cheesy goodness, I can hold out.

I can't get cinnamon toast out of my mind lately. Can you still order that at cafes?

Is it just melted butter in toast with cinnamon sugar on top and grilled?

Toast the bread, lashings of butter and add some cinnamon to your raw sugar for that perfect sugar fix. wink.gif

Toasting is just so much effort! LOL

Given that I'm sitting here procrastinating on EB, I obviously can live without it.  

I used to Love sugar sandwiches as a kid.  With white sugar, coz that's what dad used.  It's like fairy bread, but sugarier.

#12 Logical nonsense

Posted 26 February 2013 - 05:01 PM

That's what mum used to eat for breaky, not sure if she still does,
A piece of bread with loads of butter & sugar on it with 2 cups of coffee,

Its nice, no worse then fairy bread.
I would add cinnamon, love that stuff,
just finished making cinnamon buns, can't wait do dig in.

Don't you know white bread is evil? Just eat the sugar.

If you sprinkle cinnamon toast with water just before you put it under the grill, the water droplets melt the sugar into deliciously crunchy little bits.

Mix any sugar with some butter and cinnamon and slather it on bread, then grill it until bubbling.

I don't mean to sound like a stalker but you're lactose intolerant aren't you Soprano-Cat? I remember responding to one of your previous threads about a sore tummy or something.

Anyway, Liddells now make an awesome lactose free cow's milk cheese. I've bought it from Woolworths in the past month or so. It comes in either 250g bag of grated cheese or 250g block of cheese for about $5. It tastes just like normal cheese. Sooo good! I hadn't eaten cheese for about 10 years because of my lactose intolerance. I'm now making up for lost time!

(It is also gluten free for any fellow coeliacs. Yay!)

I am lactose intolerant, but it takes a fair amount of overload to make it flare up - I've been practicing tolerance for years now Tounge1.gif  Same with gluten, as I'm also gluten intolerant, but I've been working at it.  I refuse to give up bread and pasta for anyone Tounge1.gif

Obviously, it's not a major intolerance, but I do know when I've overdone it!

I've temporarily relieved my sweet needs with leftover pineapple pieces and the pizza is in the oven!

Yum!!!!  I love pancakes with butter and sugar on them. It is my fav combo but I also like to put a squeeze of lemon on them and then they are delicious.

If you have butter and brown sugar and honey you can make caramel. Well, that's how I've been making it as instructed by the recipe on the side of the bag or pop corn kernels. Caramel popcorn is my fatal flaw.

No, go for a walk to the corner and back, even if you're wearing thongs. The high of exercise is way effing better than any sugar high.

Oh, and I mean the next corner in your street - not the room you are in.  biggrin.gif
