Dessert Sunday

Yesterday we celebrated our first "Dessert Sunday." In an effort to get away from the idea that we need dessert every day we've decided to only have desserts on Sundays and special occassions. It worked out great! Rather than cut out all sweets indefinitely (and then binge on them later) we knew that Sunday was coming and had something to look forward to. We didn't overindulge because we knew we'd get the same chance next Sunday. As a bonus we didn't have to play the "how many bites do I have to take in order to get dessert" game with Noah. Dessert actually felt special!

For those curious folks, I made these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. Geary took the leftovers to school with him this morning. Next Sunday I'm planning on making a plum cake with a recipe I found in a vintage cookbook. Yay!
