I confess. Yesterday, I went to the store and bought two Lean Cuisines and two Smart Ones to try to get me through this week. It's hard enough having to sit and smell real spaghetti or salmon or steak that Tom is cooking for himself and Tim, while staring at a Lean Cuisine Mac and Cheese. But try doing it when you're eating a 5" cardboard pizza with three slices of mushrooms and a tablespoon of fake cheese. Oh yuck. If I make it through another four weeks, it will be cause to celebrate....(with a bottle of wine and a bag of Fritos).
In the meantime, I am trying to fill the void with the vegetables. Home made soup helps. Here's a Butternut Squash and Mushroom number I whipped up one day and then ate soup for my veggies for the next three:
BTW, many of you have been asking where my next book is. Well, I have been working on #11 on and off for a year now. (Mostly off). I have been having a constant battle in my head and heart between the writing and the sewing. Most of this year, the sewing has won. Here's my latest craze: Halloween Hats!
Okay, well, now back to the d%$#& diet. Many times I really wonder why I'm doing this. With who knows how many missiles pointed at California, I will be really, really mad if my last days are spent eating this crappy food. Oh, sorry. I guess I need an attitude adjustment.
Anyway, the book, The Breach at Briar's Burn, is 50% done. I guess I'll quit whining and go finish it. Afterall.......
