I can’t believe it’s been a year already but it’s time to sit down and figure out which food group(s) I want to give up so I can drink Starbucks Eggnog Lattes.

You probably think I’m crazy; that only means you’ve never tried a Starbucks Eggnog Latte. They are so rich and coffee-ey and eggnoggy and warm and delicious and if they put rum in them I would probably never leave the store, just survive on them until January 15 or whenever they are discontinued.

They are not too sweet, they are not too thick. It’s like a warm parka in a cup. A really delicious warm parka. So, something’s got to go. I can probably get by without cookies; though I’ve been strangely attracted to them lately. I blame that on the chocolate cream Oreos that I bought for the kids but still claim I have no idea how half the package disappeared so quickly.

Maybe I can give up cake. Lately I’ve had a hard time finding that perfect piece of cake where the cake part isn’t too dry or the frosting isn’t too sweet or crunchy. Yeah, I can give up cake.

What? You don’t consider cake a food group?

And no, Starbucks did not sponsor this blog.

Yum. I've heard the gingerbread latte or whatever it is simply sinfully delicious, too. Cut out cake. Never popcorn.
