Slap me on the ...

Random thought: Does anyone in the Kansas City area do NS and enjoy the shakes/bars? My b/f has tons of them and he hates them. We'd be excited to work out some sort of exchange or just to open the lines of communication. =D

All right...slap me on the wrist and call me a bad girl cause I didn't get my oil changed. *sigh* (and I'd like to make a special note to all you freaky-people out there, I said WRIST! hehe) I know it is bad, but I'll do it tomorrow? I promise??

This weekend was lots of eating out and drama. My b/f's mom and dad put on a big memorial day party which every year I try to wiggle out of =) It isn't that I don't like the b/f's family, it is that I don't like them in large quantities. One-on-one they are all really great people, but throw me into a crowd of them and I just feel like a fish out of water. hehe. I guess that's why I can't get my b/f to come over to my family gatherings. I should make a mental note of that realization so the next time I'm bitching at him for not interacting with my family I remember why. Oh, screw that!!! I see his parents on a weekly basis and he has seen mine maybe 20 times in the seven years that we've been dating. He is due for a couple of uncomfortable family gatherings =0p

Yeah, so, anyway.....this weekend was pretty bad for eating. I didn't really feel like we were doing that badly, but the memorial day picnic caught me with my hand in the cookie jar more than once. Then, being the sweet, romantic guy that he is, my boyfriend made me a huge plate of bananas foster (I added a link for those of you that don't know what this yum-yum is )--YUM!-- but definitely not on the diet plan. At this point, I kind of feel like I've gained back everything that I lost (and if you believe the scale, I almost have!). I'm going to try to be really "good" this week and stay on track with my food. Unfortunately, it is supposed to rain everyday this week so going out walking may be hard to accomplish. Maybe I can get out earlier in the mornings and walk before it has warmed up enough to produce thunderstorms.

I'm going to go clean up my car so I can be ready bright and early tomorrow morning to go get my oil changed *groans*

Yes I am sure that our beef mince is the same as your ground beef...
My recipe is
500gm (1 lb) of beef
one small brown onion diced,
half a cup of white rice
salt and pepper to season
mix them all together and add other flavours if you so desire...
Roll into meat ball size...

Place them in a dish.. I use a lasagne dish...
Mix one tin of 440ml tomato soup with 1 cup of water in a jug and then pour over the meatballs and then cover with foil and put in a moderate oven for 1 hr.... easy as... I used to use tomato and bacon flavoured sounp but cant anymore due to gluten content...
but they are yummy anyway... and called porcipines due to the rice swelling and they go spikey.. haha
