Somehow over the past few months,
I seemed to have re-gained the weight I lost last year.
Im going to call it the Puppy Pooch because I know exactly what I did..or didnt do to add this weight back on my body.
I didn't prepare meals or food for me and Todd while I was cooking up all those sweet potatoes and chicken feet for Leighla and Willow. We ate things like, frozen pizzas, chips and salsa, granola bars, Jimmy Johns and To Go Chinese food instead of veggies and healthy meals.
.. And wine!! You know, just a glass (or 2) in the evening.
I actually just went in and added Meal Prep to the Getting Ready for Puppy tab on the website. It might seem crazy but these little guys take a lot of time and attention. It's the only way that we can make sure that they will be well adjusted adult dogs.
As we are now, almost, puppy free around here. I decided to do some meal prep for the upcoming busy week. Then...........I got a craving!!
-- What else would one make when they need to lose some weight right???
I thought it would be fun to bake up a batch of caramel rolls and surprise a few friends of ours with some fresh baked treats this weekend. My mom makes that ULTIMATE caramel rolls. They are light, just perfectly sweet and part of all the holiday and family events that I can ever remember. I grew up in a small town, Storden Minnesota, population 147. If we wanted to eat it, we cooked it!!
The Norwegian, Swedish and German women of the Lutheran or Baptist churches in that little town could cook like no other!!
So either Im just really homesick right now or truly needed some good ol baked up goodness. I whipped these babies up!!
Here's a picture of the finished products.
Now I need to go find some salad ideas for the rest of the week!!
Have a great week everyone and
HUG THE PUPPY for me!!!
