Janet McCormick: You won’t regret blowing your diet on these treats – Huntington Herald Dispatch

Planning a vacation this year has been a different sort of experience. Its filled with a lot of anxiety, uncertainty, and unprecedented provisions around the world because of COVID-19.

Though it promises a much-needed respite, we didnt play it safe and stay in the country. No, we had to go big and travel outside of the United States. There were some extenuating circumstances that persuaded our decision like a voucher that would expire, and our love for the very southern Caribbean waters, and great friends who agreed to make the trip right along with us. I dont buy into the over-Facebooked quote, Its not about the destination, its about the journey, because, hello, its Antigua its totally about the destination.

I do agree, however, the journey holds its own excitement. I love making goals and preparing for the big day and this one holds a little more thrill because, well, we need to get away after a year-long lockdown. Besides the anticipation of taking in glorious, sun-drenched scenes and pale blue/green waters, the preparation of losing a few pounds, date nights that include pounding the treadmills and throwing up weights, buying every travel sized toiletry made, random texts from our friends showing her new beach sandals, are part of the excitement or journey to get where paradise is the end result.

Im not going to lie, I caved on a few holidays. I gave up the fight to lose the pounds for a few cheat days. OK, maybe more than a few cheat days. But yeah, if you taste these sour cream brownies, youll understand the why behind the defeat. One bite and I found myself saying, The beach gonna get whatever body I give it! There are no rules that exist when theres brownies to be had. I said what I said.

Though the days until we take our flights are crammed with ordinary wonder and just part of the journey, taking a break to devour the simple things in life i.e. brownies must not be missed, not when theyre this fabulous.
