It’s time for Friday Five linkup with DC area bloggers Courtney at Eat Pray Run DC, Cynthia at You Signed Up for What?!, and Mar at Mar on the Run!

Each week Courtney, Cynthia, and Mar either suggest a theme for that week’s Friday Five Linkup, or leave it up to individual bloggers to come up with their own Free Friday theme.  This week’s theme is My Five Favorite


I decided to take today’s prompt in a totally fun direction!  Here are my five favorite yummy, decadent, sugary things that I love to eat, but pretty much deprive myself of… most of the time!

1.  Mint chocolate chip ice cream – not the fancy, expensive kind, but Turkey Hill

2.  My Aunt Ann’s cream-cheese swirly brownies

3.  My Mom’s Fudgy Bonbons

4.  Fresh out of the oven chocolate chip cookies

5.  Mounds Bars

Seriously!  On my death bed, will I remember those healthy spinach salads…

  • Or eating mint chocolate chip ice cream by the gallons while Bill and I were in grad school at Utah State University where they had a dairy that sold ice cream by the tubs?
  • Or looking forward to Aunt Ann’s famous brownies at our family reunions?
  • Or baking Christmas cookies with Mom, and always including fudgy bonbons in our assortment of goodies to make?
  • Or having fun eating fresh-out-of-the-oven chocolate chip cookies with Joseph and Daniel when they were little?
  • Or looking for my secret little stash of Mounds Bars that I know my mom will have waiting for me when I visit?
  • Questions:
  • What are your favorite tempting treats?
  • Are any of my treats, among your favorites, too?
  • Who’s racing this weekend?
