How did I not know that THESE existed? I don’t even have words.


I spent 60 minutes over the weekend trying to convince Mr. How Sweet to eat one meatless meal… even if it’s like, grilled cheese. He says that would be impossible, because then “he’d have to eat fish 8 times a day.” I also asked him why he bought a 4lb container of animal crackers filled with high fructose corn syrup. He said, “I watch those commercials. That stuff is just sugar.”

Okay.


If you are looking for a recipe to make during Lent, may I suggest this?

I hear that eating things like this during Lent makes them calorie free.

    My husband is the same way. It literally pains him to eat a meal meatfree. He is a little bit ridiculous about it. That recipe looks totally fat free.

    You’re a rockstar. You’re always making things calorie free for me. I love you, but I don’t love HFCS. Tell Mr. How Sweet he needs to stop watching those commercials.

    I love making marshmallow but I don’t think I would like beer ones, beer’s not my thing. Chocolate and bacon on the other hand… wow. Even J might eat chocolate if if had bacon in it. (Yes I married a man who doesn’t like chocolate, don’t get me started…)

    I don’t eat a lot of fried foods, but I have NO problem eating massive quantities of fried fish, fries, and anything else they serve at Lenten fish fries. You know because “it’s Lent, it’s okay.” :)

    So. Just so you know, I’ve stumbled across your amazingfantasticawesomesauce blog the same week I pledges to lose 35 pounds by September. I know I SHOULD probably press the little ‘x’ button now and save myself, but instead I’ve logged you in ‘Favourites’.

    Oh, willpower. When did you abandon me?

    But anyways. Thank you thank you thank you for posting such deliciousness for mine eyes to devour. <3

    Leah @ Beyer Beware — March 10, 2011 @ 4:21 pm

    Your husband and my husband have the same view on meatless and HFCS. My husband tried a throwback pepsi and didn’t even finish it. I can’t lie though, I think everything is ok in moderation, so I don’t keep HFCS out of my house. But we do have grilled cheese sandwiches at our house. Granted my husband puts about 8 ounces of velveeta on his sandwich. Not really sure that counts as cheese!

    I cooked dinner for the first time last week, I’m seventeen, and I used this pierogi casserole recipe. It was wonderful and everybody loved it. My mom wants me to make it again tomorrow. :D Such a lovely recipe, thank you for sharing it.

    Hiya Jessica! I adore your blog and you are so funny and gorgeous! Yesterday I found myself 80 pages back from the start…. I then fell to the floor in a food coma, my eyes burning from looking at so much deliciousness.
    I was really wondering what treadmill do you use? I’m thinking of getting one and your’s sounds like a pretty good one?.
    Keep up the amazing blogging! <3
    P.S Don't worry about your wandering around in your old highschool sweats all day…… I do too….. mine usually end up with cake mix of some form on them… but enough of that.

      Hi Abi! Thanks so much!

      Honestly, I actually hate treadmills. We had one that my grandparents gave us, but it broke a few weeks ago. I am not even sure what kind it was. I was only using the treadmill a lot because I took a hiatus from the gym when I quit my job. But I’m back at the gym… I think those treadmills are Precor?

        Your welcome!
        Oh well in that case I shall just keep running. It’s probably much nicer running outside in the fresh air anyway?
        Thanks so much for replying!
