    • I see you have the same spammer I had! Don't you feel special?

      I think we're all fighting the dragon this week. Persistent sort, isn't he/she/it?

      • Anyone giving odds? It could be a drawn out battle. Perhaps we should divide it into quarters. Winencandy will win in the end, but the first half could see things going the other way. I say, 3 to 1.

              Personally, I'm hoping for a fast hard decisive victory! I hate long drawn out battles.

              Excellent Idea!

              It is.

              This is what the Dragon tempted me with this weekend:
              Saturday



              I tried the popcorn (with a pink sugary coating), a Bunny Tail (marshmallow dipped in white chocolate and rolled in coconut flakes), the Strawberry "Carrots", and of course the Mini Eggs and the Caveman Crunch

              And Sunday



              The cupcakes were gluten free. My daughter and her cousin decorated them. I had a Rice Krispie nest and a gluten free brownie with ice cream (not shown) and of course Mini Eggs and the Caveman Crunch

              Here's a close up of the chickie



              I have left over gluten free cupcakes and brownies in my house...
              The only ones that really tempt me are the 4 gluten free brownies

              And Surfer Son & Daughter's Mini Eggs...

              • What a spread! I'm not sure what I would do if I were faced with a spread like that. We had quite a tableful of treats at church, none of it gluten-free, but it is no temptation because being in the choir means I can't get into the Fellowship Hall for at least 20 minutes and everything is terribly picked over by then. So it's good that I'm in the choir!

                  A definite bonus of belonging to the choir. My FIL is 88 and he's been in the choir since he turned 18!

                  At church Sunday, the minister asked who personally knew someone who had died and come back to life.
                  I raised my hand.

                    • Dragon Damage: 2 brownies
                      and/or
                      should I count the Caveman Crunch?? (about a 1/4 cup)

                      NO huge cravings. Only 2 brownies left.
                      There are about 10 gluten free cupcakes left. They are not calling me.
                      There is about 1 - 1 1/2 cups of Caveman Crunch left.
                      There is also about 2 swallows of red wine left in the bottle...maybe my Farmer will drink it...

                      • Good to see that daughter is doing much better. She'll be back to sports soon enough, no doubt.

                        Crazy sugar laden spread for the holiday. I think all things considered, you did well. No permanent damage done, time to regroup and move on.

                        Just one thing...how does one leave 2 swallows of red wine behind in the bottle ??

                          • Round one: Dragon. But Winencandy is looking good, prancing on the field. She's not letting it bother her. Watch that flexing action!
