Argo Tea

There is a cute little Argo Tea store just down the street from my office in Evanston (1596 Sherman Avenue). They make these beautiful pastries and their presentation is just short of elegant.

This one, which was $3.95, was enough to fill me up at lunch the other day. Even I was amazed that a sandwich this small could satisfy me for the rest of the day. It was a delicious combination of Thai chicken and cherries. They have an extensive variety of pastries and sandwiches to select from. I’ve had a few of the breakfast treats and I could get hooked on them if I gave myself permission.

Self-discipline refers to the training that one gives one's self to adopt a particular pattern of behavior even though one would really rather be doing something else. Case In Point: I have to be somewhat self-disciplined because most of the time I would rather be eating!

What was it my mom use to say – just when I finish one meal, I am planning my next!

Bon Appetit!
