So I've Got This Problem.

It all started out as an innocent trip to the grocery store. You see, this past weekend I was walking the aisles minding my own when all of a sudden out of the blue these dessert cups appeared in front of my eyes. The same dessert cups that you use for strawberry shortcake. It was in that moment that I remembered how good strawberry shortcake is and because these dessert cups were something like one whole dollar, I threw them in my cart.

And that was the moment my life changed forever. 

A few tubs of cool whip, several quarts of strawberries and one gallon of vanilla ice cream later and I was set. Set to gain 1,000 pounds.


Because now guess what friends, I can't freaking stop eating strawberry shortcake. And it's not just like a little strawberry shortcake every night around 10 pm. It's enough to feed a football team. Except the only person I'm feeding it to is myself. Well that and my husband. I think he might have a slight problem addiction as well. I know this only because as we were eating dinner tonight around 6 he says "Do you think we could eat some strawberry shortcake now?" to which I replied "but that's what I do at 10!" and he says "No, I meant if we eat some right now we could also eat some later too..." Even my dog acts 50 shades of crazy when I start getting the ingredients out every night. 

In case you need help remembering what season is upon us, it rhymes with kim boot. Shawn just rolled his eyes at that. Swimsuit season is what I am talking about. And you know what doesn't fare well with swimsuit season? Heaping bowls of all the calories combined with a mug full of coffee and Rumchata. 


If this sounds like a desperate plea for help, it is. Somebody quick, please send help. Preferably in the means of dessert cups, ice cream, strawberries and whipped cream. I'm running low on the ingredients and need more immediately.

  4. Haha, cracked me up reading this! We do this all the time, we find something we love and eat it to death. A week or two later just the thought of whatever we're obsessed with starts to make us sick, that's when life can return to normal!

  5. There is no other way to eat strawberry shortcake than in mass quantities. Don't worry, you're in good company here ;)

  8. My husband would be right there next to you, and he just keeps eating until it is gone:)

  9. At least you aren't breaking down the strawberries by adding sugar and letting them sit overnight. That would add a lot more calories and then I'm sure you would be regretting it... but man, it's so good.

  11. Um yes. This is a frequent problem in our household as well. Those little cups seem so innocent but they'll get you every time.

  13. I love his theory that if you eat early enough, you can eat more later. I may or may not do that when Im out shopping. If we eat an early lunch, we can also do dinner........

  16. I love strawberry shortcake, but right now my guilty pleasure is chocolate. i went to the store yesterday and bought enough for like 2 months which will probably be eaten in like 2 weeks by me.

  17. Haha! I feel ya...last night there wasn't much ice cream left in the box, so I used the carton in lieu of a bowl and added chocolate syrup straight to the box. At least your dessert looks fancy in its little bowl!

  18. Haha! I feel ya...last night I added chocolate syrup straight to the ice cream carton instead of transferring it to a dish. Don't worry, there wasn't much left...sounds better than saying I ate it all. At least yours looks fancy in its little dish!

  19. At least you're not slicing the strawberries, sprinkling them with sugar, and putting them in the fridge for a few hours until they've made a deliciously sweet juice that gets absorbed into the dessert cups making them all the more decadent and addictive...OOPS! Did I just enable your addiction a little more?? ;)

  20. Did you know that I won the elkhart county bursting with berries contest several years ago with a blueberry parfait version of shortcake? Yep, I usually make it with strawberries but changed it up with the blueberries for the contest but I start making this with strawberries Memorial day weekend and don't stop until after 4th of July. If a parfait shows up on your doorstep, it's from me unless I eat it on the way over to the River. ;-) Happy Friday my sweets!

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
