How is this for happy?

Monday, March 14, 2011

As many of you know my dear friend Jez's son is a Rugby player in Wales. He plays for the Cardiff Blues, but has been being picked for all the Welsh National games and is REALLY doing well. They are in, hmm to compare to the US, the "superbowl playoffs" of Rugby.
This week was Wales against Ireland. Sam played brilliantly, and this is a picture his dad (Jez) took of him when they won!! Sheer joy in his face...isn't it wonderful??
You go Sam Warburton!! You have fans in the US also!!

my Saturday experiment

Sunday, March 13, 2011

Hi all, in attempting to have a somwhat healthier line at the bakery, I made these tiny BAKED donuts. You can see how small they are by the pic with the quarter. the glaze has NO fat in it..just confectioners sugar, water and flavoring, and for the chocolate ones, the same but added cocoa. they are adorable, tasty, and much lighter than a regular donut.


I am not suggesting that they are calorie free, but one or two small ones can sure be worked into any plan, and will satisfy that sweet craving!!

    Nice! I was just saying to someone that I like the teensy cupcakes and dessert shots that restaurants have these days, for portion control. They are beautiful.

    Very nice. I am one who refuses to give up any foods at all. I'm learning quite well how to moderate the servings AND the frequency!!! (equally important...I don't have 3 or 4 meals of pasta and pizza a week, nor do I have 3 or 4 days with treats like a donut).

Love the little donuts!!!

    good idea on making them smaller and home-made. I have to have something sweet too but I try to resist the doughnuts and go for something a little healthier. Doesn't always work but I'm working on it. I absolutely love your shamrock background! so pretty. kim

depressing weather

Friday, March 11, 2011

oh how i despise spring. Mud, ice, rain...it takes my beloved snow away and is a harbinger of the dreaded heat of summer. so this morning i decided to do a paradigm shift and try to think of things i LIKE about spring:

the flowers that come after its gone...(we dont get spring flowers here)
rhubarb!!
the maple run..i get to be in the still snowy and cold woods, i love checking taps, and the smell of the sugar house boiling
robins. i love robins
less defrosting of the car in the am before work
the nights are still below freezing.

    Good attitude shift. I have to do that when I wash dishes or do laundry ("Thank you, God, that I have clothes to wear and food to eat ...").
