Next came the whisky sticks that we fell in love with when we used to go visit Eva and her family. These are stick pretzels, coated with a mixture of butter, brown sugar, garlic, cayenne pepper and baked – oh my they’re good!
Then Mollie and friend made a cake – I’m sure this cake has a name, but I don’t know it. I think I’ll just call it ‘Nick’s going to have to get the damn cane out for this' cake. It adds pounds by simply being in my house! It’s a German chocolate mix in a 9 x 13 dish. When it came out still hot she poured on can of sweetened condensed milk and a bottle of caramel sauce. Are your teeth hurting from the sweet yet? Once it cooled she iced it with cool whip and topped it with crushed Heath bars.
Not wanting to be left out completely I made cookies – homemade from scratch I tell you! I even used baking powder. I had to have Mollie’s friend bring it from her house because rarely have cause to have it in my house. It was a cookie/brownie cookie and I used white chocolate chips in them, very good if I do say so myself.
All this was before Mollie made three cheese stuffed shells with meat sauce for supper, which we ate with garlic bread.
I also managed to injure myself during all this activity, it’s my back or shoulder blade. It feels like I pinched something. I think it’s a vicious cooking injure. I’ll know to avoid this activity in the future. It hurts when I turn certain ways, reach down for something, turn over in the bed or even take a deep breath. I don’t like it one bit.
With all this food in the house, you might realize my Friday weigh in might not be the best. I haven’t been recording each Friday as I’m supposed to. I’ve been telling Nick, “Let’s wait until the New Year.” Okay, now what?
