No More Candy!

I need my office to purge of all of its Halloween candy.

I don’t even like candy that much, but when it’s just a few feet away and a sweet craving hits… that’s dangerous, you know what I mean?

Oh, you know. Don’t pretend you don’t.

(Just FYI, I totally hear the Jaws theme in my head as I look at those pictures in progression. And, I’m not going to lie, I heard it as I took the pictures, too. I’m special.)

My heart was stolen by a Pay Day. Love those things. Perfect blend of sweet and salty. Anyway, that “fun size” candy bar was consumed after a completely nutritious lunch, so at least there’s that.

I had more leftover roasted veggies, so I knew I needed to use those.

I also had a block of tofu that needed to be consumed before I left for my mini-vacation tomorrow (!!!), so I cut that up into cubes and broiled the cubes in the toaster oven for a few minutes.

While everything was heating up, I decided I needed something to pull it all together… so, despite my reservations about how potatoes and soy sauce would mix, I just went for it.

It worked well enough.

Not a make-again-as-soon-as-possible kind of meal, but, you know – good enough.

I finished lunch off with two dates, thinking that would curb my sweet craving…

But, well… we all know how that ended.

(Badly. In case you needed help there.)
