Anatomy of My Trash Can

Sometimes I don't realize how ridiculous my life is until I'm confronted by photographic evidence. During my two days off work last week, I made 4 candies and 4 desserts for my various websites. We valiantly tried to shovel as much as we could into our gaping maws, but in the end, we're only two people, and some of the sweets were relegated to the trash can. As I was cleaning up I was struck by how this totally, completely represents my life:

Spiderwebs Candy
Witch Hats Candy
Pumpkin Marshmallows

Not pictured:
Pumpkin Bread Truffles
Pumpkin Muffins (TBP - To Be Posted)
Lemon-Violet Meringue Tarts (TBP)
Dark Chocolate-Chile Souffles with Cardamom Creme Anglaise (TBP)

On a VERY related note, I'm giving up sugar/processed carbs for two weeks to give my body a little break. It's not bad when I'm at home, but outrageously difficult when I'm at work, literally up to my elbows in doughs and frostings. Wish me luck!

My two sisters went without sweets for 21 days and they are still alive to tell the tale. If they can do it, you can do it too! Be strong!

I'm thinking of doing the same after some girl told me that sugar consumption might be related to my bad joints and low energy. Maybe this'll restore me to functioning person status and I can start thinking about marathon running and all your other little tricks.
