...a mind is a terrible thing to waste....

..and a waist is a terrible thing to mind..

So I'm not wasting my mind trying to mind my waist..



Mind: What??

Me: I'm TRiCkiNG my mind...ah..you..my mind...

Bwhahahaa!

Mind: Oh, do go on...

Me: I love love love LOvE Creme Brulee..yes, youbetcha.. I do.

I think I would do your laundry for a good Creme Brulee...or at least drive it to the cleaners.


However, I checked and searched and even "Googled" what's allowed on the Weight Watcher's plan..and can you believe it? No Creme Brulee..couldn't find it anywhere...

Bummer.

This is where the trickery comes in..I am pretty good at trickery when it comes to eating...

Mr. B got me some fat free sugar free Dulce de Leche pudding cups. Now, these are pretty good all by themselves, but I was thinking ...how could I trick my mind to think it's actual Creme Brulee?

Mind: Seriously..really, Colleen..you think you can have "faux Brulee"?

Me: Well, yes, seriously.. I think it'll be perfect, just wait and see.."

Mind: Give it your best shot - after all, I was the one who convinced you to see yourself with skinny eyes..

Me: I know.. You are partly-totally the reason I'm here - I didn't realize how far off you have been - I mean, I thought I was..uh..not so fa...I thought I was..thinner...you told me I was...

Mind: Yeeeah, sorry 'bout that. Now, go on about all this Creme Brulee silliness...

Me: OK, so I took out the pudding, I mean Brulee base...added All Bran for the faux-brown-sugar-crunch and topped it with Fat Free Cool Whip..


Mind: Hmmm..not bad...not Creme Brulee, but not bad.



Me: OK, now I need to work on a faux-face-lift...

Mind: Oh brother...

me:PS- No, DO NOT add the M&M's - those belong to Mr. B...and he takes them VERY seriously..

....seriously.

...very..

-me. again.

oooh creme brulee... hmm, you could try putting your faux creme brulee in a little ramkin and then disguising it with your toppings- maybe that would help your mind into thinking it was the real thing!

Hey, you could submit that recipe to Weight Watchers! I hear they are always looking for new 'taste-trickers'...haha.

I noticed how low the M&Ms were in the first picture...poor Mr. B...better get to the store, eh?

Hahahahahahaha...

I've heard of this tricking the mind thing..."Why is it soooo easy for me to lose twenty pounds?" "Why is it such a delight to do the laundry?" In this case, you've done a splendid job of trickery!

What a great post. I love the tricking of the mind! Those look absolutely delicious!

Mary said...

I wonder what would happen if you sprinked it with splenda and torched the top? Mmmmm....now there is a desperate thought! Thanks for the idea...I might have been tempted to slip in a few m&m's under the cool whip!
