"Moments Of Timeless Pleasure"

You know how sometimes it's just the simple things in life, that if given it to, make your day? Ok, maybe not your day, more along the lines of about 10 minutes...

This my friends, made 10 minutes of my afternoon very very enjoyable:

A single scoop of Rocky Road Ice Cream.

I fought back and forth with myself as to whether or not I should walk across the street to get this.  I only do it once a month or so, and considering all I ate today were some small Thai Spring rolls from Lean Cusine, I went for it. And boy was it worth it....I was in chocolate ice cream heaven for a good 8 minutes or so.  I savored every last bit as if it were some delicious forbidden fruit.

I find it odd that I adore *good* ice cream so much. I never loved ice cream like other kids. In fact, I could never understand why kids my age went so bonkers for it....It wasn't until I was in my late 20's that I really started to crave it.

Ultimately I can't beat myself up. I guess if I gave into my cravings all the time, I'd be in trouble...I just give into the overwhelming ones. Gluttony is not my thing....at least not very often ;)

Here's some pictures of other treats (of the edible variety) that I absolutely LOVE...but don't eat all the time...or I'd probably be very overweight & have a sticky heart.

Actually, even more than that. I LUST BACON. 

My love for Cheese is borderline dangerous. All in moderation.
Oh & I lied, I do eat cheese, all the damn time.

French Fries & Ranch Dressing...DELISH!

Taco Bell Crunch Wrap = Heaven in a Tortilla.

Chicken Tenders + Ranch Dressing = LOVE

I sense a salty theme going........

Chocolate Souflee' is fabulous.

 I think that's all. The only thing I eat regularly is cheese. Have I told you I love cheese? ;)

What's your favorite guilty pleasaure of the food kind?

Thanks for stopping by, I'm off to WORK OUT!


  1. I love ice cream and try desperately to avoid it but I live with a man who eats ice cream like it's going out of style. I've got him trained to eat the lite stuff...but it wasn't easy!
    I also crave M&Ms and Hershey kisses...lol!
    I also have been known to down the taco bell quesadilla. Delish!

  2. I actually love the Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake ice-cream sticks. I just sent my husband to the market to get some. I also crave salty potato chips, Red Vines, bacon, cheese, bread and guacamole. I probably could live just off those items alone. :)

  3. OMG we ARE soul sisters!

    I need to get me a Ben Jerry's vermonster fix when I'm in the US (hint hint, on the way from the airport, Jen!) because I've craved it ever since I left London four years ago.

    I LOVE alot of food. I am the type to get on a food fad fix, cook/eat the same thing several times a week for several months, then move on to the next favourite. Right now it's brown rice salad. Sounds random, but this is GOOOOOD.

    I am also ADORING salt and vinegar chips/crisps right now. Well actually, all the time. mmm.


  4. Is there a place we could go to get some fries covered in bacon and cheese?
