Wednesday the kids and I visited Sugarbaby's Cupcake Boutique in Houston. Just look at this cupcake goodness: (from top left: Charming Chocolate; Dippity Doo-dah; Dippity Doo-dah; Java Chocolate) Mine was the Java Chocolate. OMG! So good. The kids weren't terribly impressed with cake but thought the icing was good. They're quite the cupcake connoisseurs.
Here's how I justified the trip to a cupcake shop: Rachel is taking a cake decorating class so it's kind of like an elective in school. So we went to the cupcake shop on a field trip. Are you following me camera guy? That's it.....a field trip! It was for education. And I'm all about my kids' education. Ha!
Hey, I did eat "on plan" the rest of the day. Balance. Must have balance. :)
It has been 1 week and 1 day since the chicken mummification project started. Yes, I still have a chicken sitting on my counter.
Today the kids made canopic jars. The jars were used to hold the intestines, lungs, liver and stomach of the deceased. Our jars will hold pennies, trinkets and rocks. Maybe keys.
At the moment I am desperately trying to fall in love with my diet again. By diet I mean my everyday eating not diet as it has come to be known in pop culture. Even with all of these great recipes I'm kind of bored with it. Which is weird.
Maybe I'm just bored with the idea of "dieting" to lose weight. Maybe I'm settling in to the day to day routine of eating better. Maybe the honeymoon is over and it's time to settle in for the long haul. I don't know.
Tonight I will be making a new recipe. If it has a high nom nom nom rating, I will share it with you. :)
