That moment when you’re cheated and no one knows the truth. Not naming names or going in depth about the situation but it took a toll on my relationship with that person. However, all I did was take a deep breath and speak my honest case and defense. So I got out of it and I didn’t even need a lawyer! You had no idea how happy I was. I felt as if it was a beautiful new day with the sun shining and birds singing…but it was only 68 degrees!!
I figured the most sensible way to celebrate was to cook. I wanted something big and indulgent but not too sinful that I would gain weight the next day! So because Thanksgiving was near and I had a lonely can of organic pumpkin in my fridge, I made myself a pumpkin pie! Not just any pie…it was crustless, moist and irresistible! I adapted it from the Crustless Pumpkin Pie recipe (which you should TOTES check out BTW) but used oat flour, replaced some mashed banana with the oil simply because the coconut oil jar was a b!$ch to open. I’d list the recipe myself but because it’s so similar to Katie’s pie I’d practically repeat 80% of what she posted. After all, I don’t want to be a cheater 😉
After a kick-ass Pilates session of leg circles and clam-shells for hours upon hours, it was pie time. So I did what any girl on her period would do. Take a spoon and go all WWII. It tasted heavenly with almond butter but Greek yogurt was yummy as well. Now this is what I call a happy Thanksgiving. Or an early one. Gobble gobble..
Disclaimer: don’t eat the entire dessert every time you bake something. Pay attention to serving sizes–have one or two pieces/slices and then save the rest for later. I bet this pie would’ve made an awesome breakfast or dessert for tomorrow when heated up! But hey, this time I treated myself extra well because I actually accomplished something I thought I could never do. I stood my case and didn’t let others put words in my mouth. People can be manipulative. Though I do believe my lab partner should’ve been punished in some way I resisted it. It’s possible that people may be generally sorry for what they’ve done, or maybe they’re not. You never know unless you dig into their brains to find out.
Moral of the story: you would think it’s to stand up and don’t be afraid of others hating you, especially if they know they’re getting what they deserved. But it’s actually to make a giant pie to be grateful of yourself. 🙂
Happy (super de-duper early) Thanksgiving,
