Sugar Desperation

It's getting pretty ugly over here, people.

I've made it pretty clear that I'm on a prednisone-induced carb craze right now. At least that's my excuse. I feel like Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde as I continue to struggle with this.

Good Julia said: Hold it right there, young lady. Oh no, you don't. You're not going over to Rose's Deli to eat everything on their dessert menu. You're staying home. Period.

Bad Julia said: OK. I'll stay home. But I'll come up with something....bwahahahaha.....*rubs hands together evilly*

Here's what Bad Julia came up with.

I had absolutely NOTHING in my pantry with which I could concoct a cake, cookies, or desserts in general. I had no ice cream, no candy, no.......anything. Or so I thought. Until Bad Julia rummaged around in the far back corners of the lazy susan and emerged victorious. She found peanut butter, a sleeve of saltine crackers, sprinkles, and some leftover white candy coating. Very very leftover. So leftover that I really can't imagine how long it's been hiding in the kitchen.

I slathered peanut butter between two crackers, then dunked the thing in melted candy coating and sprinkled the sprinkles. After cooling long enough for the candy to firm up, the result was disgustingly delicious. Sweet, salty, crispy, creamy.....ahhhhh.

Bad Julia. Bad, bad girl.

Gotta love prednisone...ugh. But those treats look yummy! You did a great job improvising. Are you on prednisone long term? I took it for a short time a few years didnt help much so I was SO happy when I got off it.

Julia, it just goes to show that necessity really is the mother of invention. I'll bet that sweet/salty taste was awesome. I was on prednisone a few years back for head-to-toe hives....only for a few days, thankfully.
