My Miranda Moment

Do you remember that episode of Sex and the City when Miranda makes herself a chocolate cake and eats the entire thing by herself one weekend? I had my own version of that last night. I am not proud, but I will say that my version was less fat than an entire cake. Or....that is what I am telling myself anyway!

So last night I was home and catching up on my blog reading. While this may sound unexciting to many, I was very happy to have some down time and catch up on your lives over the past week or so. Around 8:00PM I decided I wanted something sweet but wasn't happy with anything my freezer was offering me. Sitting on the kitchen counter was my coffee pot with about 4 cups of strong decaf left in the pot (when I made ice coffee earlier in the day, I made the coffee stronger to combat any watered-down flavor.). I thought- granita sounds delish right now. But instead of adding any sugar, I decided to kick it up a notch, as Emeril would say. I added Baileys Irish Cream- my FAVORITE! Just poured both into a Pyrex pie plate, mixed them together and set it in my freezer. I mixed it with a fork every 20 mins for what felt like forever but was likely about an hour or so. I topped it with a dash of chocolate malt powder and three dark chocolate covered ginger pieces (just like the choc covered coffee beans but ginger- mmmmm good!). It's pretty fancy schmancy considering I ate this alone while sitting at my computer reading blogs. The first helping was so stinkin' good that I went back for seconds....and thirds....and since it was almost gone and "needed" to be finished....FOURTHS! I actually didn't keep eating the gingers because I was not crazy about how the ice made the chocolate so hard and crunchy. This was such an easy way to use up cooled down coffee and you could certainly omit the Baileys.....but why....it was soooo good. I should know, seeing as how I ate the whole damn thing. Miranda would be proud!

I'm in... Anything with Bailey's! And, the HD Bailey's ice cream is so sinful...

Actually it was a giant cookie with the words "I Love You" written on Miranda ate.
Hope you enjoyed yours...
I ate 2 l of no sugar no fat ice cream yesterday (I was sad and in pain) and I'm pretty sick today.

Oh I forgot about the cookie with "I love you" on it episode. I loved that one too. I hope they make a movie bc I miss those silly girls.

I'm sorry you had a sad day! Hopefully the ice cream helped- though no sugar and no fat hardly seems worth the effort. I'm pretty sure it's the sugar and fat that make me feel "better."

That sounds so good, and I would definitely leave the Bailey's in. I saw that SATC episode the other night on HBO on demand. Love it and can't wait for the movie.
