Holiday Weight Gain
Peanut Clusters. K makes them bigger than his mom does. Um...I'm not even including everything here. Left off are photos of the happily consumed: chicken and noodles, Famous Dave's BBQ, chicken and wild rice soup, Pizza Hut Pizza, Mexican food from Pueblo Viejo, fudge, Old Chicago, jam thumb print cookies, Kobe An Japanese food, mint brownies, M&M cookies, ham dinner with mashed potatoes and corn, sloppy joe lunch with waffle fries, ETC!!!
Peanut Brittle. It was spot on this year. I don't think I even liked peanut brittle before I met these people. Now I am a True Believer.
Actual Almond Bark
Custard Pie. I know. It doesn't stop.
Candy Cane Cookies. This is a labor of love, let me tell you. The taste is so good because of the almond extract. Do you see how my mother-in-law totally gets the RULER out? Intense!
Cheese Ball. Sold as a fundraiser by the United Church of Christ in Melbourne, Iowa. The recipe is a total secret. Those church people are not talking.
Porcupine Meatballs. A lot of people wonder if we eat porcupine. No, we don't. When the rice cooks inside the hamburger meatball, it sticks out, which reminded someone a long time ago of a porcupine.
Let's get back to the healthier foods and sane portions, shall we?
