Death by pie


This is a snickers tart, from the local bakery- you know, that big one you have to walk past if you want to go to the Post Office- unless you're going to go the long way around, through the park and up the hill and let's face it, you won't. This tart is not recommended for people who are trying to watch their weight or cut down on sugar, because if you purchase this, you WILL eat the whole thing. Don't try to kid yourself that cutting it into tiny wedges 'like a pie for dollies' will mean you'll only have one piece. It will not work.


The only real way around this is to remind yourself that if you go just one block over- just one block, not even a whole block really, more of a carpark and a laneway- you can get yourself a nice big fat salmon steak for the same price. And it's so much better for you. And the walk across that laneway and carpark will do you good. Especially if you didn't walk the long way to avoid the bakery and now have a Snickers tart wedged carefully in your bag.
