Favorite Part of Traveling? Dessert!

Yes, I like my desserts. Chocolate cake, cheesecake, tiramisu, ice cream, you name it, I will eat it. I love dessert! For me, one of the best things about traveling for work is that I usually eat alone and can hide my dessert addiction from others.

It is much easier when my family isn't around to order dessert. I just can't seem to justify my sweet tooth with them around (other than my dear son) and usually forget about dessert. Besides, have you seen the price on these desserts? "Really dear, it's a need. I need dessert to keep my energy up." I know, it never works.

So what do I do when on the road? Get a smaller entrée and then splurge on dessert. Or as I did last trip, skip dinner altogether and get Dairy Queen instead! Shhhhh, don't tell my hubby.

How it looks at the restaurant
This week I am traveling with coworkers so we hit Olive Garden for their all you can eat soup, salad and breadsticks. Oh, and dessert! The best kind? The kind that you can get to go and eat as you are surfing the net. Tonight I got the Triple Chocolate Strata...heaven on a plate.

Unfortunately, it never looks like this when you get it to go. But thankfully it tastes just as delicious.

I am not going to be a glutton. I will only eat half tonight. Unless I sleep eat. Then all bets are off.

One of these days I will have to start exercising again. It will catch up with me. Did I mention that I walked 2 miles tonight? I did! And I have witnesses. Can I justify the other half of that dessert? What's that? The chocolate cream is calling out to me.

What is your splurge when you go out to eat?


  1. Before I found out I had candida, I would skip meals and go straight to dessert. Hot Fudge Brownie Sundaes were my very favorite. Hubs thought I was crazy.... but it was oh so good.

    Then candida struck me down. No more sugar for me.... ever!! Kinda sucks to be me.

  2. It must be a woman thing to be crazy for desserts! I can imagine that it must be hard to give that up. I would miss my desserts.

    Hope things are going well for you.
