If you haven’t noticed, this new year seems to be all about weight loss. Everywhere I turn, it’s all about diets, nutrition, exercise and losing weight in general. We were watching the first “Biggest Loser” last night and a commercial for Jenny Craig came on. I turned around and said, “There is probably no better time ever for this commercial to air…New Years and during the Biggest Loser.
All this weight loss has me feeling a little guilty. If there is one weakness I have, it’s for dessert. I can’t take it. Sometimes I get in the car and drive up to Whole Foods with one thing on my mind. Dessert. It’s like I’m someone else. Strange, because I am so strong in many other areas. Put a piece of cheesecake in front of me and I turn into an idiot.
Oh well. I guess that’s what exercise is for. Like we always say round these here parts, “You can eat whatever you want as long as you burn it off.”
I think I may have mentioned that Whole Foods probably has the best desserts out of any grocery store I have ever been to. I think they make some stuff themselves and have some shipped in. My favorite by far is the tiramisu and second is the banana cream pie.
Just a few nights ago, I found myself in the middle of a plate of banana cream pie. I felt like Gilligan from Gilligan’s Island. I always wanted to know where the heck Whole Foods gets this pie, so I looked at the bottom of the container. I found out that “The Pie Guy” out of Salem, NH makes these little platters of heaven. I think the reason their stuff is so good is because they don’t cheap out when it comes to ingredients. It’s serious business for them.
Before I sat down to write this post, I realized how bad it was going to be without a picture. Trust me, I really wanted to take a picture, but that became impossible as I finished the last piece of pie. I am sorry for that.
Okay, the reason for this post – I just wanted to give a little mad peace big props word to big bird to the Pie Guy.
