Can you think of that special treat that brings brightness to your eyes and a smile to your heart?  What is your weak spot when it comes to food?  Put a box of chocolate glazed Dunkin Donuts down a path where you think I might pass.  Even better if you throw in a chocolate-glazed with colored sprinkles on top.  Do that and wait.

It happened today.  My colleague and I were on our way to exchange our office keys when we saw the two boxes, one stacked on the other, on a small desk with a sign above it that read “Thank you for your hard work, Budget Team.”

We don’t even work for the budget team but that didn’t stop us.  The best part of opening the box is the moment before you open it.  I always say a little prayer to the food gods and hope there is a chocolate-glazed inside.  She slowly opened the box. There it was. The sole chocolate-glazed shining brightly among a variety of other “holy” options.

My colleague, the stronger and more disciplined member (a.k.a Zumba Queen) of this mischievous duo, slammed the box shut and said, “No, we can’t.  We have to be strong”.  “Shucks”, I thought.  We were about to walk away (I’d be back later, of course) when another colleague appeared and headed straight for the box.  “Ohhhh, no!” was my silent thought.  I pretended not to watch as she reached inside and grabbed something else.  My internal organs smiled.  “Thank you, food gods, for leaving it there.”

Dunkin Donuts might not impress you and now you might even begin to question my gourmet taste buds. Look, I live for Food & Wine Magazine’s delectable dishes but I die for Dunkin Donuts.  Guess what I found in the second box?  Hint:  It had colored sprinkles on top!

I hope you enjoy the recipe for Earl Grey Chocolate Chip Cookies, another dangerous road that leads to sin.   The recipe for these can be found on the DesignLoveFest blog.

Qual é o seu ponto fraco?  Tem uma comida que, quando você vê, os seus olhos brilham?  Para mim esta comida é um donut da marca Dunkin Donuts.  Coloca um “Chocolate Glazed” no caminho por onde você acha provável que eu passe…e aguarde.  Certamente vou cair na armadilha. Hoje eu e uma colega de trabalho estavamos caminhando pelo corredor do prédio quando ví (de longe) duas caixas fechadas da Dunkin Donuts, uma em cima da outra.  Havia um bilhete de agradecimento ali perto.  “Obrigada pelo bom trabalho, Equipe Financeiro.”  Nos duas nem somos do departamento financeiro mas isso não nos impediu.

Antes da colega abrir a caixa rezei para os deuses da comida e pedi que dentro da caixa estivesse um Chocolate Glazed.  Ela abriu a caixa lentamente para fazer suspense.  “Ahh, maravilha!”  Eu já ia meter a mão para pegar o “meu” Chocolate Glazed mas a colega fechou a caixa rapidamente e disse, “Não podemos.  Temos que ser fortes”.  Fiz de conta que ela tinha razão e nós duas viramos as costas para ir embora.  Eu fui bolando um plano para voltar logo.  Nisso vimos uma moça quase que correndo em direção a caixa.  Soei frio.  “Aleluia”. O Chocolate Glazed sobrou.  Eu assume que sou fraca e despachei a colega.  Ela é feliz fazendo Zumba e eu sou feliz com um Chocolate Glazed de Dunkin Donuts.  Os Chocolate Chip Cookies sabor chá Earl Grey desta receita tambem podem fazer as pessoas perderem a força de vontade. A receita se encontra no blog DesignLoveFest.
