Yep, mark it an your calendars – I won a costume prize for the 4th year in a row! Before I get to this year, my co-worker said she didn’t mind me posting the pictures from when we were lesbians for Halloween! And the funny thing is, when we were looking at these pictures, we both remarked “what do our outfits have anything to do with being lesbian??!!”
The funny thing is that the photographer at JC Penney was not even phased at all that three women wanted their picture taken together – it was her idea for all of us to hold pine cones in the above picture!
So my costume isn’t that elaborate, but what put me over the edge were my goody bags with homemade cookies and Halloween candy – Tony and Hannah declared my chocolate chip toffee cookies delicious, and I don’t have a picture of a single one – but they were chewy – something I’ve never been able to achieve before.
My pot luck contribution was copy cat Portillo’s cake. It’s so simple!
- 1 box super moist cake mix (can be any flavor)
- 1 cup mayo
- 1 cup water
- 3 eggs
Then just bake according to what size pan you are using.
For breakfast I picked up this at the store on my way to work:
It was a great party – my sister actually had a great idea – I should dress as Bobby Flay next year and walk into peoples offices and say “Are you ready for a Throw Down!”
I wanted pizza last night, but didn’t feel like cooking believe it or not! So I picked up a $5 sausage pizza from our local grocery store and kicked it up a notch. My side had additional pepperoni, red pepper and pickled jalapenos.
- no clue how many calories!
- blood sugar average was 109 😀
- no exercise (so I have to exercise today)
We have no particular plans today, except I need to find some recipes for Phase I of the South Beach diet. Oh, and mop my kitchen floor – anyone want to volunteer and do that for me? 😀
