12 Pounds

12 Pounds is not to be confused with the absolutely horrible movie 7 Pounds by one of my favorite actors, Will Smith. And that will be the last I speak of that movie. 12 Pounds refers to the weight I  would like to lose but haven't. The problem may lay in the food that keeps appearing in my house. All of the following items were consumed over the course of this weekend.


Candy Corn, one of my weaknesses. Actually, considering how many weaknesses I have I don't even know if that term applies.


Cranberry Walnut bread. Reminds me of the Fall I've been feeling in the air lately, even though it's only September.


A delicious Buffalo Chicken Burger, homemade and to die for.


Olive cheese bread. Heaven on Earth.


Lemon-Lime Jell-o Salad, "Poisonous" as Middle Child called it in an effort to keep his cousins from eating it so he could finish it off later, all by himself.


Ambrosia. The real name is Peanut Butter Oatmeal Brownies with Fudgy Chocolate Frosting. (And who invented spell-check? Fudgy is a real word!) Even though almost everything is homemade, I don't think it was all super healthy. Someone check me into Eaters Anonymous.

Sounds like a great weekend to me and I would have to adopt the "12 pounds" with you after a weekend like that. That's the problem with having family and friends - all who like to eat - too close to you. Of course, it's also a blessing - friends, family, and good tasting food!

Oh, my mouth is watering now!! I'd love some lemon lime salad and the peanut butter oatmeal brownies would just be the cat's meow. I'm calling for carry out from Spanish Fork, Utah to my home. Do you deliver??

Craig's always calling for carry out from Spanish Fork. That is his number one vacation destination! To say that I'm jealous of all those yummy foods would be a serious understatement. Send me some brownies with fudgy frosting. Sounds divine!

First of all what the heck is all that yummy food doing in your house!! I made that olive bread last week for a football party and everyone just about died at how yummy it was. Basically now I need to eat all that food you've made!!

Mmm, the olive bread looks good - share the recipe, please! I have so far resisted buying candy corn this year, but I doubt that my resolve will last past the next 2 days...

The olive bread is here. I love it! Make it with or without green olives.
