I have a new addiction, with a resulting problem.

Not sure if it's the crispy, light texture or the cinnamon-sugar yumminess baked in every bite that causes me to forsake everything I believe about calories and portion size. 

After picking up a bag of these at the store, I ate half the bag before I got home.

And then ... I'm ashamed to tell you ... but, I ate the other half of the bag later that night ... actually it was two bags that Beau and I split, which equals out to an entire bag per person.

Thus, the resulting problem.

On another note ... 

just for you Drama Mama ... 

My fear of biscuit cans revealed.


For my entire adult life, I have had a fear of biscuit cans ... something about the popping open of them. For at least the first 10 years of our marriage, I never really purchased canned biscuits of any sort, unless I had a recipe that called for them, and then I waited for Beau to come home so that he could open them.

If, by chance I was not able to wait for him, I would slowly take the biscuit can with my outstretched arm and in my right hand, never allowing the can to leave the kitchen counter, scoot my body as far away from the can as possible, turn my head away, close my eyes, and swiftly pop the can on the counter. But, this would only happen in a biscuit emergency (not too often).

Since then, actually a couple of years ago, after admitting this fear to my mother, she informed me that I had a can explode on me as a child. Well, no wonder. I have been scarred for life by a biscuit can!

Thanks for the enlightenment- Although I have never heard of such- I can see your point- I mean it does kinda scare me when it pops! We don't eat too many canned biscuits around the pond, but we do eat our share of Sister Shuberts- Maybe you should just stick to those since they come in a pan!

This is some funny stuff. Although I guess I shouldn't laugh at your life-changing traumatic biscuit-exploding event. I am mostly laughing because I have the SAME weird fear of the biscuit cans...although, as far as I know, nothing ever happened to me as a child. Or maybe it did. Hmmm..

I am turning my eyes away from the chips now. Turning. Away. You know anything crispy in a bag is my weakness, right?

Isn't it crazy that our psyches don't let us past silly stuff like that? We are captive instead by a childlike response to something that seems so inconsequential....

And how much more is there that we aren't even aware of??

Weird.

i purchased "all natural almond clusters" today at sam's, i think i've eaten half the bag. i keep telling myself that since they are "all natural" it is okay... but i've still consumed like 900 calories in two hours! have to try those pita chips!

I have a fear of pressure cookers. My mom gave me one when we married and I was secretly horrified. The IDEA of that thing sitting on my stove with it's little bobby shakey thing moving around and the whole thing just WAITING to explode? Uh Uhn. Nope. I don't have to and I ain't gonna.

So I gotcha on the can thing and think you are A-OK.
