Surprisingly Delicious!!

What would your reaction be if someone asked you to eat Chocolate covered grapes? Would it be, "Ew, gross"? Or would you be intrigued by the idea and try it anyway? My reaction was the first choice! However, when I tried them I was pleasantly surprised and have found a new way to ruin my goal of losing 10 pounds! Here is the recipe, so that you can join me in ruining said goal!

1 bag of Milk chocolate chips ,
Grapes (Red Grapes tasted better but green was also tasty!),
Pan covered with wax paper

Rinse and thoroughly dry the grapes, do this step at least an hour before covering to be sure that they are dry. If you are in a hurry, you can dry them with a towel.

Melt chocolate chips in the microwave or over the stove. Proceed to dump a hand full of grapes into the chocolate, make sure they are covered in it and then set them on the pan.
Put them in the refrigerator for approximately 1 hour. Enjoy!

New Challenge: Eat delicious food!

I had a moment of panic when Selissa called and said "You know how we like to eat out a lot? Well, I have a proposition for you".

I am the first to admit, I like my sub sandwiches, burgers from the dollar menu, eating grilled chicken salads while my boys chow down on chicken nuggets and fries (am I killing my children?!), and I have a major weakness for Chinese restaurants and buffets.
Though I am happy to report I've been doing much better when it comes to eating out and nickle and diming myself to death...or debt.

So you can imagine my relief when not only did Selissa tell me no, I don't have to stop eating out...but I get to eat out and try and recreate the yummy food at home, and then blog about it! You know what this calls for...dinner out. SOON.

I'm looking forward to being a regular and diligent contributor on this blog. You help other people out!

Ode to food!

Food O Food, How I long to munch,
You taste so good,I love you so much.
Sometimes you're good and sometimes you're bad.
You make me so happy and also so sad.
Staying away is so very hard,
I love you so much I've turned into a Bard.
