Share a Spoon Theme - Carb-a-Palooza

Think Tank Momma

Happy Saturday Smackers!

It's Theme Time!

Share a Spoon Theme


This week's theme is my favorite thing.  Seriously.  My favorite thing in the word is bread.  Well, bread and cheese.  Or pasta and cheese.  AND POTATOES!  Oh my how I love potatoes!  

The whole low carb movement baffles my mind.  The thought of replacing the bun on a burger with lettuce is just insane to me, because the BUN is my favorite part!  Take the insides and just give me the damn bun!  I'm not kidding.  Go out to dinner?  I'll take the bread basket and dessert.  Yep, I am that person.

Carbs aren't all bad, and they certainly aren't the devil.  Pasta dishes are often low calorie and low fat.  So it's a balance act with diet.  Finding a happy medium.  Really, the truth that we all have to face is everything in moderation is fine.  Problem is, we generally over indulge way too often.  It's hard not to with fresh, hot, steamy bread and warm butter.  *sigh*

Just for this week though, let's indulge the carb lover in us all and share our favorite CARB-A-LICIOUS recipes!  Be it bread, pasta, scalloped potatoes, pain perdu, bread pudding, whatever I don't care.  Just bring on the carbs!!

Love me some carbs--seriously the best part of any meal!

My fave are those rolls at the steak houses. Holy cow, are they good or what?!

ohhh how I love carbs. "fresh, hot, steamy bread and warm butter" - I literally salivated. I have several bread recipes I haven't shared yet, maybe I can get them written up for this!
