I'll miss you.... my sweet food sins...


Dearest Pepsi, its probably you I'll miss most of all. Your zingy bubbles of sweet corn syrup laden goodness bursting in my mouth. You're so bad for me but you're my dearest guilty pleasure... Maybe its best we separate for a time so I can seek out additional forms of refreshment. I'll come back from time to time you're not completely off limits but we can't be as close as we've been no more 1 liter in 2 hours... I'm sorry Pepsi... I'll miss you!



How do I love thee fair sushi roll... sweet nigiri perfectly balanced on a ball of rice... Succulent fatty tuna and albacore I'll miss the way you melt in my mouth sliding of chopsticks... I know you're not completely off limits. I know tempura rolls and such are still available to me but dearest sushi you know the way to my taste buds is ruby red slices of raw tuna...



My dear sweet coffee fix... I miss you already every morning when I wake up and realize my wake up drink is a juice box... I miss your rich warmth. The nutty roasted flavor that fills my whole mouth. I'll miss my first sip of a caramel macchiato how its rich bitter coffee mixes with thick buttery caramel... Oh yes it may be awhile dear coffee before we're reacquainted again but I will always love you.... (don't worry I want no part of your evil cousin de-caf) there's a winter full of hot cider, tea and cocoa for me!

My all American treat... Hot dogs... salty garlicky tubes of meaty goodness in a soft bun with mustard. The perfect grab and eat lunch. I have so many sweet feelings about you dear hot dogs, like before I got married when I was living with Daddy and he'd make hot dogs at midnight... ah yes... supposedly you're safe piping steaming hot and maybe if I buy the all natural kosher beef I can eat one or 2 of you now and again.. Know you'll be missed. I'm putting my Dad on high alert to eat my share of hot dogs.

I love you. I never did give up my pop. There's no way I could live without caffeine. LOL

O goodness!!! This cracked me up! You know I think you can have 8oz of coffee a day. Don't take my word for it but I think I remember that from my 1 semester as a nutrition major! ;)

Too funny. Any now why can't you eat hotdogs? Indigestion? And you should NEVER be eating them at midnight! Preggo or not! Agreed with the Pepsi. When I'd go out to eat while preggo and have to pass up the pepsi soda fountain, I'd always sfiff silently to myself. And that Chai tea at Starbucks always called my name...
