I Couldn’t Resist


I have been shopping at a Japanese market for years–though less frequently than in past. On Saturday, I took a friend to experience the place.  Despite trying to cut down on my sugar intake (and increase my exercise time) I decided to grab a bag of my favourite chocolates, and a couple of other treats.  I just couldn’t resist.

I’ve written about these before, so I won’t bore you. Suffice to say, they are delicious little chocolates with a variety of fillings or cookie backings.  My favourite is the one with the coffee nougat in the centre.  I hope the pack has at least five of them.  They are about 30 calories each.  I will do my best to limit myself to one a day……

 I had my usual tonkatsu lunch and enjoyed it.  Sadly, the bakery was closed for the new year holiday, so I didn’t have a chance to eat choux creme, or other flashy cakes.  Hopefully next time.

    Nothing wrong with a little reward every now and then.
