January Jeans 2014: Bake Holiday Recipes and Buy Treats That Aren’t Your Favorites
For today, consider this: Bake and Buy Treats That Aren’t Your Favorites.
There are bound to be family favorites that don’t trigger your cravings. Strategically buy and make others' favorite treats that don’t strongly appeal to you--you know, like a Cookie Monster. I've often been amazed at how often getting a different brand of candy (for Halloween) or ice cream, that I didn't particularly enjoy has made *all* the difference.
The same goes for holiday recipes too. Don't tempt yourself. Bake and buy holiday treats that aren't your favorites. My family has so many favorites that they don't actually care about missing out on my personal favorites. They told me that it's fine! They always come up with something they like to eat.
What do *you* think? How do you handle this situation? Are you baking and buying treats that aren't you favorites? How does your family react?
Have a Great Day!
