I will be good, I will be good, I will be good...

Everyday I start my diet. Everyday it goes pretty good. I have Orowheat's Health Nut toast for breakfast with my coffee. Lunch is a turkey sandwich, boredom helps me to stay on track! Dinner is where things go South...you see all day long I've thought about what dinner was going to be. I looked on my favorite blogs for great recipes, I made my pilgrimage to FoodGawker and then I turned on Food Network. Between those bad influences the diet flew out the window. 

One of the best/worst influences comes from Thibeault's Table. Ann's many delicious recipes and techniques makes my willpower fly out the window like a scared chicken escaping a fox in a henhouse!

From simple to decadent she shares her own recipes, other bloggers and the classics of Julia Child and Jacque Pepin. She has a huge collection of recipes on her blog as well as on TasteSpotting and FoodGawker.

This week Ann made a Rustic Roasted Garlic and Cheddar Bread. Help me, help me Lord! Help me to just say no to going in the kitchen and making this delicious loaf of goodness. When I bake bread, my husband tells me, "Don't make anything else, just the bread. I don't want to feel guilty for eating the whole thing!" Oink, oink!!!

I want to thank Ann for building my character and my waistline all in one fell swoop!!

  3. Hi Joycee,

    I think diets suck! I refuse to stop eating foods that I love. I just try to eat smaller portions. I try to exercise regularly as well.

    Poor kitty:-) Great pictures!

    Thanks Joycee, I'm going to take that as a compliment - I think. LOL!

    I'm really honored that you blogged about me today and shared a few of my photos on your blog.

  8. Join me Oct 1st in losing my LAST 10 pounds by Christmas..you can do it! 10 pounds is a lot of weight and definitely better than gaining ten pounds! All it will take is eating 500 calories less each day and exercising 500 calories off each day...(hour of walking)!! "Don't bring the enemy home" or quit turning on those TV shows!!
