  • Gum? Sugar-free breath mints? I know when I'm sucking on stuff like that, everything else tastes like crap so I'm not tempted.

    It would be really hard to resist so much delicious food when it's right there in front of you though.

        • The ice cream choices I was faced with for the past two days:
          Key Lime
          Cotton Candy
          Pralines
          Black Sweet Cherry
          French Vanilla
          Chocolate
          Caramel Caramel Cup (my old favorite)
          Peanut Butter Cup Roundup (not really a temptation for me - I HATE peanut butter!)
          Maple Walnut
          Gold Medal Ribbon
          Butterscotch Ripple
          Raspberry and Truffles (my new favorite)

          It was HARD!
          I managed to hold out until 3pm (starting at 11am) before I had a small tea cup full of Raspberry and Truffles, Caramel Carmel Cup and Pralines

          • Saturday I was at the booth from 9am until 10pm and Sunday I was there from 11 am until 9 pm.

            Sunday I managed to avoid the gummy worms until 5 pm, when my "job" was refilling the candy bags...

            I made a salad for lunch on Sunday and we cooked chicken breasts on the grill to go with it.

            Supper was a burger patty with coleslaw and potato salad and a grilled zucchini.

            After we closed the booth at 9 we walked down to the marina for the fireworks display. It was Excellent.

            • Today I slept till 10am

              Then after lunch I helped my Farmer paint (again)
              we got back at 3 and jumped into the pool (with coolers and beer)
              3 coolers and a glass of wine later, I had cod (with lemon and garlic) on tinfoil on the BBQ with kohlrabi, carrots and potatoes with garlic (wrapped in tinfoil)
              And a chocolate covered ice cream on a stick

              I'd rather paint in 30 C weather than work in the booth...less temptation...

                Yum. I did get kohlrabi at the market this weekend, very nice just raw.

                            I know! I'm SO glad that I don't work there everyday! I'd gain back my 14lbs in NO time

                            There's just SO much! Besides the ice cream, (with a waffle cone option) there are about a dozen different 5 cent gummy candies, licorice, gum, chocolate bars, chips, the fresh cut fries (they have a fry cutter - the potatoes are cut and then fried - no frozen fries for my dad ) gravy, poutine, hand made burger patties, toasted fresh bakery buns, perch (with a light dusting of pancake mix before they are deep fried) onion rings, hot dogs, sausages, homemade coleslaw, 10 different sodas, milkshakes, sundaes...ummm, I think that's everything

                            All of this open and available to me.

                            When we make a batch of fries, of course you have to try one, to make sure they are cooked (my parents are fussy about the fries) and of course you make a few more than you think, because it's better to have a few left over than not have enough for the order. (It is VERY easy to eat a couple of left over fries - much easier than eating a whole order - did you know a small order of fries is MORE than one large potato?)

                            Of course there are usually a few left over onion rings too...


                            again, I'm SO glad that I'm NOT there everyday!

                            • Today I helped my Farmer paint again. Maybe two more days of painting...

                              It was HOT! The sweat was running down my face and back I took off my tank top and painted in an old bikini top.

                              We left home at 8 and got back at 4. I had 3 hard boiled eggs and 3 thin slices of peameal bacon for lunch.

                              I felt sick on the way home. My Farmer thinks I didn't drink enough water. This is possible.

                              I had a shower when I got home and drank water. I gradually felt better.

                              I had a glass and a half of wine while making supper. Spaghetti (no noodles for me) I cooked up some carrots, kohlrabi, onions and garlic to eat with my meat sauce. An ice cream on a stick and a Chai after supper.

                              I'm tired, I don't think I'll be up very late tonight...

                              • oh wow, those fresh cut handmade fries sound the bomb. I would sooooooo be eating them! If they cooked them in olive oil I dont think they would be thattttt bad surely and just you talking about all those lollies is making me salivate. Its very difficult giving up sugar.
