I sure didn't plan for my "diet" to interfere with Recipes on the Cheap. But it did. The old rule, "outta sight, outta mind" works for me. IF I am not writing about food, I am doing okay yet it seems everyone is posting these delectable photos, close up of cream cheese filled pastries and then there is chocolate.
Believe me there is a mental battle going on - I want to just forget the whole diet thing and then that other part of me, wants to at least finish it up. Which for me will be March of 2014. I have given myself that amount of time, to lose so its not like I am starving myself - (I will be 60 in March) I can get this weight off in that time. I have already lost 13 pounds and 10 inches from my body. I can't go back.
So I will post now and then - other people's recipes that I am craving - and hope to have one day. I have quite the list of favorites just since this diet. Many of them are desserts and the funny thing is, I usually am not a dessert person. I will be out on the look out for good recipes, that are simple and cheap with the occasional culinary splurge!
I will start with this recipe I saw someone post on Facebook. Pastry is a weakness with me. I love the texture of a layered flaky pastry in my mouth. I admit - I almost threw caution to the wind, and made this. Instead I kept it for future reference. The photo alone makes my mouth water....
Now I would review this recipe...but I hope to do that once I get down to a size 5. (Maybe a size 7 if you rope me into it.) I have 2 sizes to go!
