Under the "Good Intentions" Heading

Aren't they precious? The Lil' Drums are just as yummy as the original-sized Drumsticks, and they are the perfect-sized portion, except for people like me and my if-one-is-good-another-would-be-better congregation.

They really help me in teaching my kids the importance of portion control. Then, after the little darlings have learned this important nutritional lesson, they will go to bed and I can help myself to another crispy sweet cone of dreamy goodness.

Years ago I used to bake tiny little cookies, just smaller-sized versions of the original recipe, for portion control. And guess what? I'd eat twice as many. So now I bake cookies as big as they were meant to be baked and I just eat one or two.

Portion control definitely has its place in our daily nutrition, but leave my ice cream alone.

I could really go for a box of those drumsticks. It's hot here in Kuching!

Wish I could send you some, Nate & Annie!

What a neat idea! It does work in our family now that my two boys are all grown up; it's Robert who seemed to have distorted ideas of ONE portion but with Trader Joe's little ice cream sandwiches and those little mango and cream bars (they seemed to have discontinued them), he is doing much better.
