HOW CAN I DIET?

I mean to say, honestly, the thin world is against me. I get out of bed with resolve in place to keep the cravings at bay and Taste.com lands this in my Inbox.

Amaretto cheesecake with chocolate melts and thankful for small mercies, no dollop of King Island Cream beside it, it's inside it but what's another truckload of calories so let's go with the King Island whacked over the top with the chocolate.

I love Amaretto, in cakes, in ice-cream and in my coffee. I loved the little reminder in the 'Notes and tips' - Amaretto is from bottle shops. Another tip, Amaretto is from friends who are going overseas and can get to a duty free shop. It took me a year to down the last huge bottle from travelling persons.

I can't give up Taste.com, they have terrific diet recipes and tips. I zip through those on my way to the good stuff.

I had button squash, zucchini, carrots, curried with rice for tea and I keep coming back here to look at dessert.

"Once I tried a diet, a quiet life, no sweets.
But I went nearly crazy for my chocolate covered treats.
Oh! black boys are delicious.
Black boys fill me up.
Black boys are so damn yummy,
they really warm my tummy ...

(C. Gerome Ragni & James Rado 1968)

The picture gives full meaning to gastroporn. Does Brownie like a touch of the exotic?

Lynn, the rating for this on the forum was nice to eat but a lot of work and dirty dishes. That'll stop me every time from trying it.

Brownie, that song has so many triple entendres I'm surprised it wasn't banned. I can't remember any songs from 1968.

Of course she does Andrew, that's why you're invited to lunch.
