Here Comes Peter Cotton Tail....

Yesterdays highlight of events....Melt down coloring eggs.....
The colored eggs....(not finished)
Went to my mother in laws. She had a cute little set up...Here she is testing the mashed taters...
Some of the spread (which I didn't indulge in) included...

  • Meatloaf
  • Mashed Taters
  • Pinto Beans
  • Pork Tenderloin
  • Macaroni
  • Rolls
  • Corn on the cob
  • Peas
Desert (which I also avoided)
  • Homemade banana pudding
  • Some kind of cake
  • Cupcakes
  • Some kind of pie
I snacked on my no fail snack (which I packed with me).

Easter egg hunting....

When I got home it was sort of late and I was starving so I just literally shoved a flatout wrap smeared with peanut butter in my mouth and proceeded to bake some of VeggieGirls Blondie's. I made a Chocolate Chip Walnut version. While I was making them I proceed to sneak several of the dark chocolate chips into my mouth. Hey, I avoided all the indulgences earlier and I deserved a little treat! They came out looking fab! and moist! but I haven't tried them yet because they are for a family dinner today at my mom and dad's. I hope they are as good as they look and smell!!
Thanks for recipe VeggieGirl!!!

I am trying to go low carb for the first half of the day today because I plan on a few indulgences this afternoon. This morning I had some chicken sausage, turkey bacon (sodium overload) and some cottage cheese mixed with both.
The little one woke up soon after to tear through her Easter Basket
I love morning hair on little kids....
Needless to say, she was pleased! :) Lots of stuff to do today so I gots to go for now!!!

CONFESSION OF THE DAY: I get a lot little annoyed when people make a big deal about me not eating what they are at family events. A lot of times I feel like people put me on the spot and its just something Id rather avoid. I tried to avoid it yesterday at my mother in laws by sitting at the kids table and eating my squash, cc, and pb but my goofy husband decided to yell across the room "what are you eating honey" right in the midst of silence. I was pretty perturbed!!


  1. I'm not sure I could have resisted all that yummy food - but I bet the blondies were worth the wait!

  2. Is that your mom in the photo testing the food? She is gorgeous, and so are your girls! What a good looking family!

  3. I mean, your girl...just the one I see ;)
