I Have a Problem

For the Super Bowl, Trout and I made up some snacky foods to enjoy while we watched the game. After a quick trip to the grocery store, we came home and made some little smokies in Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and layered bean dip.

I could cut myself off from the little smokies, the beer, I could even stop myself from the chocolate covered gram cracker cookies. The dip is a whole different story.

Despite being continually full today, I couldn't stop eating the dip. It just sat there, with it's layers of refried beans, guacamole, sour cream, cheese and tomatoes, taunting me. I could manage a break from the binging once the bowl of chips emptied, but then Trout just brought the remaining bag of chips into the living room. Once the bag of chips entered the scene, I was done for. I took a small break from eating to talk to my parents, but once I was off the phone with them I started up again, even though it was 9:00. I finally realized it was really too late to be eating and finally put plastic wrap over the remaining dip (which wasn't much) and forced myself to put it in the fridge. The bag of chips is almost gone and I've lost count of the times I've told myself I should stop eating because I'm full.

It's official, I'm addicted to dip. If it's in front of me, I won't be able to stop eating it. And that doesn't just include layered bean dip. The same goes for chips and salsa, guacamole, queso, spinach artichoke dip, Alfredo sauce (to dip with bread), and olive oil with balsamic vinegar (also with bread). Luckily, I don't have a reason to eat my favorite category of food very often, so at least when I do gorge myself, I don't feel as guilty as I could.

Have a great week, everyone. I have work related events going on every night this week, so posting just isn't going to happen, even if I wanted it to. See you all here next weekend!

Refried beans scare me. Ditto guacamole, sour cream, and cheese.

Oh, who am I kidding?

Dip scares me.
