I Hate My Family!

Saturday, December 29, 2012

I have been dying to make an Oreo pie ever since I saw a picture of it on Pinterest. After my cousin made some Oreo truffles, I decided to try those out as well since I already had Oreos and cream cheese. I picked everything up from the grocery store on Thursday, and I decided to make it today. (You should probably know that my mom starts freaking out every time I use an appliance.) Well, I had to grind up the Oreos in a food processor. My mom told me that she would grind them up for me, so I agreed to spare her from having a heart attack. My mom asked how many cookies she needed to grind, and I replied around 30.

My dad flipped out! He screamed and yelled! Why? I was using too many Oreos in my recipe! While the rest of my family would only eat like eight to ten all together, I wanted to eat the other twenty or so truffles, let alone the pie. Seriously? I don't think anyone can eat more than three or four, Dad! Then, he said, "Honestly, Jamie, do you know how much fat is in one cookie? You can't afford to gain that! Do you think you're skinny? Because you're not! You're fat! And you want to eat 40 Oreo cookies?!" I just broke down crying, said I wasn't going to make them anymore, and ran to my room. And then he had the nerve to say, "Oh, you're not making them? Good!" emoticon

F.Y.I. I was making a low fat and low sugar version of these recipes. The Oreos were the only thing which contained a substantial amount of fat and sugar. Everything else, like the cream cheese, whipped topping, and chocolate pudding was fat free and low sugar! And obviously, I was going to run my butt off after I made it and it was just chilling in the fridge! emoticon

    Thanks for the support everybody! My dad and I are all good now. emoticon He came and apologized to me later. Then I explained that the only reason I needed 30 Oreos was because I was making 2 different recipes.
    Today, my family finished ALL of the Oreos! So I was telling my mom that we need to go get some more! (And I heard that they make Reduced Fat Oreos!) So she basically started lecturing me like my dad did yesterday, only in a slightly nicer manner. My dad stopped her!
    So I'm still going to make my recipes tomorrow! emoticon

    But I just want to say a massive THANK YOU to all of you! Thank you so much for the support! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Awww, Sweeite. I know how you feel. My Mom was a lot like your Mom. That was rude, and mean spirited of your Dad. Like Pickie said, he is clueless. You are using Spark People for a tool, to get to where you want to be. It's to bad he can't be proud of that, and be more encouraging.
    You just be the best person you can be, and try not to let other people's words discourage you. I know it's tough at times. Hang in there! emoticon

    I guess your dad is concerned about your health and fitness, but he has a poor way of communicating it. I have to agree that a treat consisting of primarily Oreos isn't the greatest choice, but if my daughter wanted to make it, I'd let her, and try to spread the treats around to as many people as possible to keep us from overdoing it. You might try some Hungry Girl recipes that are lower in fat and calories and get your dad excited about your cooking choices.

    Somebody sees themselves as king of the world...
    If you want to, you can stand in line to be poster child for dysfunctional families with me!! My mother (86 years old) could make mince meat out of your dad, clueless though he may be!!)
    She flips off priests(we are Catholic) and screams at anybody who does not do her bidding. (lifelong habit).

    I hope you tossed all of he ingredients in a bag and gift wrapped it for dear old dad for his birthday.
    Or for the starving children in Third World countries...
    I can totally relate...
