Well it's finally been raining here. For the last couple days, we've had a few good showers, which was much much needed...the hayfield I call my grass is finally beginning to look a little more like grass again, and I believe my lawn company actually had to cut it this week....amazing. Currently it's raining. It's only 70 outside, but due to the humidity it feels all sticky a stuff...yuck.
Food wise this week, I've done pretty well. I've been a tad munchy, but with TOM coming, thats really not a surprise. My weight is up, but still well within my range, but I know this is because of water weight and not a true gain, so I'm cool. Tomorrow I do expect the scale to be up 1 to 2 lbs, which is totally normal.
Tonight I am going to do some baking again. I think my mom uses company coming up north as a way to make me bake for her, haha. She requested that I make Snickerdoodles to bring up north for her to put out, which is fine with me. So I have a batch of those to bake tonight. After baking them, I will be avoiding them like the plague, as they are a favorite of mine, none of them will make it up north if I get started on them....and I will be weighing in like 8lbs heavier next week. I'm also going to make my mom a coconut cream pie. They are her favorite and I've never tried to make one for her, but I'm gonna give it a whirl tonight. Luckily Coconut Cream Pie doesn't appeal to me, so I can bake as many as I want!
But after all that baking, I'm heading up north in the morning again. Its suppose to be a gorgeous weekend and I'm totally looking forward to it. I'm making my family dinner on Friday night up there to avoid them wanting to take me to a buffet again. I'm making them Stuffed Pepper Soup...yum!
Any of the cooks around here, have you ever subscribed to Cooks Illustrated? Used their website? Did you like it? I'm a subscriber to Taste of Home's Simple and Delicious, and I love it, and I'm always looking for new cooking magazines to subscribe to, so I was wondering if anyone used CI, or had any other favorites they used!
Anyways, that is it for today, Weigh In will be posted tomorrow. I hope everyone is having a healthy and happy day!
