Mark and I had lunch today at the House of Pies, here in Houston. I had a ham and swiss sandwich for lunch; he had chili and a salad. For dessert, I had a slice of amaretto cheesecake. All I ate from my entree was the sandwich. When Mark asked why I wasn't eating the French fries, I said, "Those are just filler calories; I don't want those."
Then I glanced down at my very yummy cheesecake, dotted with whipped cream and just luscious...and I wanted to bang my head against the table. After all, what is cheesecake but empty calories?
*shakes head at self*
It was very yummy, though!
