Because I'm worth it

Sorry I've been MIA... I have plenty of pictures and cooking experiences to share with you, but tonight I just wanted to show you one very decadent thing.

I donated blood this evening, even though I have an unnatural phobia of blood and come within an inch of passing out every time I am exposed to it. It was something I felt like I needed to do, and I promised myself a hot fudge sundae once it was all over.


I made the Hot Fudge Sauce from The Everyday Vegan, drizzled it over some vanilla ice cream (So Delicious, of course), and crumbled a cookie over the top. Sometimes you just need to be good to yourself, right? And it was very, very good...


I will catch up in the next couple of days. I hope. I have been cooking some real food too, and I can't wait to share it with you. I hope you all have had a good beginning to the week. Peace!

You should definately reward yourself for being so inconsiderate and giving! Amd Im sure this hit the spot! Im glad you blogged about this sauce, Ive been meaning to try it. I still love the caramel sauce from vive, and I would love to try new sauces.

This reward wasn't just decadent, it was necessary, to build back up everything you lost through giving blood! =) I think giving blood is a great thing- I haven't been able to do it for 2 years because of the tattooed wedding ring I have, but that will soon be over and I can start again!

Kudos to you for conquering a fear and doing something giving to help others! I used to give blood on a regular basis, but have slipped a little in the past couple of years and have only gone sporadically. Great way to treat yourself! You can never go wrong with chocolate.

Looking good! Great treat for yourself and you did a good thing giving blood. Our church is having a blood drive this Saturday. I can only hope my iron levels are high enough.
