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!!
The Smack Talker
I'm a fast talkin', smack talkin', food lovin', recipe writin', ADHD sufferin', joke tellin', wit swappin', SNARKTASTIC mommy of five. I married Prince Charming who just so happens to be a Star Wars geek, and we are living happily ever after. I tend to over share, lose my cool and make rash generalizations. I'm teaching my kids to love everyone and appreciate all things. Did I mention I love FOOD?
