Well while working at the cottage, I started dinner prep a bit late. I started the stove top and preheated the pan. I already planned to have the ice cream after dinner. Since dinner was another 20 mins, why not have the ice cream first. Life is short right? Right?!
At age 62, I finally succumbed and had my desert first. The benefits of this is that you can always have dessert again. After.
But watch the gut instinct aspect. It is always watching.
