Did you know Lent is not 40 Days?!
Lent is 40 days PLUS the 6 Sundays between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday. How did I not know this before?! Those 6 extra days are killin’ me here. I could be only 12 glorious days away from my beloved sweets all of kinds, but no, I’ve still got 18 long, sweet treat-free days ahead.
I’m proud to say, that for the past 28 days, I haven’t had ONE sweet. My definition of “sweets” is a sweet treat; aka candy, cookies, cake, honey, soda, coffeemate, fruit snacks, etc. The gray region is stuff like lemonade, which I’ll admit, I had one or two glasses of lemonade over the past 4 weeks. But I’m okay with that.
I even baked my favorite homemade cookies (as a thank you gift to someone) (it was almost torture not eating even one cookie, after they were fresh out the oven).
Thanks to Pintrest (or ‘pin-interest’ as I used to call it), I’m collecting a list of tasty treats I can’t wait to bake on April 8th.
Seriously, at midnight on April 7th/12am on April 8th, you can expect to find me in my kitchen, with cake batter and chocolate and sugar flying all over the place. I should probably get an apron… I’ve always wanted one…
Did you give up anything for Lent? If so, how’s it going?
What’s one of your favorite desserts?
