Stupid serving size...

My parents stopped by my house on their way to pick up a friend at the Louisville airport, where my mom left my favorite homemade pastry on my kitchen counter. (Crescent roll crusts, cream cheese inside, cinnamon and sugar on top--Yum!) When I got home from work, I ate what I thought was a reasonable amount (especially considering I could eat the entire pan), a little less than an eighth of the pie pan. I mean, if it really WAS a pie, wouldn't you cut it into eight pieces? Then I went to the Kraft website to find the nutrition information (because apparently I am glutton for punishment) and was pleasantly suprised that it was only 170 calories. Then I noticed that the recipe makes 24 servings. Are you kidding me? I want to meet the person who can only eat 1/24 of that yummy flakey cream cheesy goodness. Now I feel like I need to do some cardio or something. How fast do I need to click the buttons on the remote in order to burn calories?

Seriously. Who only eats 1/24th of a pie?! I would've eaten the whole darn thing.

That is funny! After Em was diagnosed w/diabetes and I had to start looking up carbs in this handy dandy book for her, I started noticing my favorite foods' calorie counts and quickly realized why I don't lose weight! UGH
