This weekend we celebrated my great-grandparents’ 70th wedding anniversary. With a reception last night and a brunch and party all day today, it was a lot of fun. But very tiring. Luckily, I have insane family members to keep things interesting. Like my aunt.
That’s my lovely aunt who also doubles as my godmother. She’s pretty cool, in a making-fun-of-Miley-Cyrus-on-a-Saturday-Night-Live-skit kind of way. And yes, that’s a dinosaur finger puppet on the right. I was thinking of somehow adding this picture to my Spoonlighting logo, but even with the mask, her secret identity is kind of obvious. Oh, and I know that people she works with read my blog. Awkward.
In diet news, I stuck with my diet for a whole 6 days and 18 hours. Who’s impressed? I was supposed to hold on until November 1st, but last night around 6ish I was like I’m done eating veggies, BRING ON DA CAKE. And I then ate 2 pieces of salmon, a bunch of pasta, a roll, a huge piece of cake, and lots and lots of candy I was stealing from my little cousins. And I’m not even going to begin to talk about what I ate today.
Dear 4 pounds I lost,
You’ve been missed. Welcome home.
I totally forgot to do Stalker Sunday this week. And I’m not about to go cook something right now and then eat more. But Tia didn’t forget, of course. Have I mentioned I love that girl? I’m pretty sure I have, but I just wanted to reiterate it. Ok. Reiterating done.
She didn’t send a picture, so I was trying to find pictures of the bread online and just say she took them. But what the heck does creme de menthe chocolate chip bread look like? The only pictures that were coming up when I googled it were green breads. Is it really green? Because that’s messed up.
Crème de Menthe Chocolate Chip Bread
From Tia Rising over at Holding The Future Hostage
1 pkg. instant pistachio pudding
I pkg. Pillsbury white cake mix (or yellow)
1/3 c. oil

Mix, beat with electric mixer until smooth. Add 1 cup mini chocolate chips (or regular if you’re a chocolaholic like me). Divide into two greased bread pans. Bake 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees.
Join me in Stalker Sunday :)
