You're running on empty, your body needs fuel - immediately if not sooner; however, a deadline is pushing you to the limit. A quick sugar-fix is instinctive and you know it will give you the surge you need to keep going. There's the leftover homemade banana pudding in the frig, just a quick bowl, add a shot of caffeine and you're good for another three hours.
So, do you grab the quick and easy because it's -well, quick and easy - or do you opt for what your body needs, real nutrition, maybe a rich soup that fills the senses with aroma and goodness plus a hunk of freshly warmed bread? And yeah - follow that up with caffeine and chocolate?
This happens to me often, especially when I'm working from can-to-can't on pieces of furniture to go off to the antique market (Canton). I know what I should do but still, I often feed the child in me. So what do YOU do? Feed the woman, feed the child, feed both??
Recipe: I've used this 'nana puddin' photo in an earlier post and have had requests for the recipe. It's the Original Nabisco Nilla Wafer Banana Pudding Recipe, always available on the box. Since I have only guys with huge appetites, I double the recipe for the pudding and triple the recipe for the topping. I've experimented and you can't substitute with instant pudding mix, nor any other brand of wafer and get the same raves.
