Comfort Foods and Writing and Magic Shopping Carts
Well, not really. But sort of.
Trader Joe's keeps putting these incredibly fattening but wonderfully tasty treats on their shelves and, somehow, they wind up in my shopping cart by the time I reach the checkout line. It's like magic. My latest find? Cookie Butter.
I defy you to stop after one tiny spoonful. Cookie butter is creamy like a Reese's peanut butter cup but only a million times better. It even smells wonderful, all nutmeggy and sugar cookieish.
Fortunately said Cookie Butter has had a positive effect on my word count this week despite the most certainly negative effect on my bathroom scale. I've been averaging close to 3000 words a day. Not bad.
