I usually like to post daily, but I fell behind on my blogging thanks to my new AT&T U-Verse! I got 2 words for you...LOVE IT! Comcast or as a friend of mine put it"Comcrap" can suck it!
So...while checking out the on-demand options, I discovered Dexter seasons 1-3. As a result, yesterday and today, I found myself caught up in season 1. I previously viewed a few episodes when CBS aired Dexter during the writer's strike, and I liked it! Tomorrow...two words...season 2.
Any who, I made it through the July 4th weekend unscathed. I DECLARED MY INDEPENDENCE! I declared my Independence from the food repressing my inner sexy! People, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all FOOD is NOT created equal, and it is my right as a people (intentional bad grammar) to alter or abolish it!" I WILL NOT GO DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT!
I must say, I fared rather well with my 4th of July food options. Basically, I refrained from going overboard with the buffet. I went to the festivities with the mindset to use my extra weekly points on prepared seasonal favorites, meaning foods available or prepared only on special occasions. For example, during Christmas my mom makes pecan candy a.k.a. pralines, and that is worth all 35 of my weekly bonus points.
My 4th of July temptations:
Cream Cheese Pound Cake
Italian Cream Cake
Homemade " I don't-know-what-to-call-it-mix"
Homemade Ginger Snaps...YUM!
