Oh the Irony of It all
I just spent the last half hour putting 50 lbs of powdered sugar into storage containers. Because I'm trying to be self-sufficient and all that.
But the irony is, while I'm trying to eat healthier, I still have powdered sugar in my food storage. And white sugar. Right next to my gallons of agave nectar and honey.
Like I have hot dogs next to the organic unsweetened whole milk yogurt in my refrigerator.
So it's a process.
Even though I desire to eat a whole food diet, real life intervenes. And I have family that doesn't necessarily want to eat a whole food diet. And frankly, sometimes a fudgy brownie with a little homemade powdered sugar frosting on top does wonders for the soul......
The only consolation is that at least the last time I bought 50 lbs of powdered sugar was in 2008.
So we'll see you again in 2012.
Now it's time to sweep up the powdered sugar mess.
P.S. Tomorrow and Saturday I'm going to an essential oils seminar. My family calls it "voo-doo" medicine....
Hmm.....I wonder what will be on the menu????
Fudgy brownies with powdered sugar frosting?
