I broke down on my "no chocolate" agreement and had plain M&Ms late last week.
Yesterday, my mom bought some holiday peanut M&Ms which I had also planned to buy for Christmas. Second splurge since September. I believe that I will take a brief chocolate intermission during this week with Christmas being on Friday. I am making a cappucino cheesecake for the main dessert as well as chewy gingerbread cookies and perhaps another cookie or bar of some sort.
After Christmas, I will resume my "no chocolate" agreement until further notice.
