Let's talk about weight loss

I played softball in high school and was in very good shape.  During the off-season, I worked out at home or at the gym.  In college, I fell off a little bit but still made it to the gym when I could.  I gained about 20 pounds in college but was still happy with the way I looked.

Then, I met the LFD.

Croissants from French Women Don't Get Fat

This is a 3-day project. You won't mind though because they are wonderfully buttery and flaky and well-worth the work! You can use this recipe to make the Ham and Cheese croissants if you don't have a bread maker.

Ham and Cheese Croissants

I used a breadmaker recipe from the Bread Machine: Kitchen Handbook by Jennie Shapter for these but if you follow French Women Don't Get Fat croissants recipe and fill them before the second-to-last step, you'll get the same result!
These turned out wonderfully and they were a great way to get rid of leftover Easter ham! Enjoy!

I forgot about March

I can't believe I didn't post one entry for the entire month of March! I don't have any real excuse except that life got insane as is my custom every year. I had new events at work I needed to plan and host, I tried some Spring cleaning and tacked on a little trying to make a baby this year, just for fun!

*For the record, cycle 2 was a fail, but, maybe this will be our cycle and everything will be happen in threes. This will be our third pregnancy and third cycle TTC. Hopefully it will work!

I hope you all had an amazing Easter or Spring Holiday or just delightful April 4. I promise I'll be more diligent with posts from now on! On the agenda for upcoming posts - Ham and Cheese croissants and regular croissants, more baby-making chaos, Spring Cleaning, and my life and a funeral director's wife. Stay tuned!

* Ciao!
