So after a terrific Easter dinner at me mum’s house, I find myself here with a giant cup of coffee laced heavily with French Vanilla creamer and a plate of yummy homemade peanut butter fudge and Turtle Temptations which are chocolate/caramel/pecan bars oozing with yumminess. Forget that I feasted earlier on ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, green bean casserole, pickled beets and eggs, dinner rolls, pumpkin pie, pineapple upside-down cake, spinach dip on rye and pumpernikel and just one glass of wine. I’ve never been a calorie counter and I don’t intend to start now but I imagine my total intake today would feed a couple of third world villages. I don’t mean that to be funny. It’s sinful how much I eat sometimes. Which brings me to the subject of my weight gain. In the past couple of months my total gain is now up to 12 pounds. Maybe I should start counting the calories before it gets out of control… Nah, I enjoy food too much.
There is now a possibility that I may be able to go back to the Vineyard this year for a week’s vacation. That could be inspiration to slow down on the food consumption. No way would I put on a bathing suit right now. Not without a shoe horn and some Crisco , anyway 😉
