Hi my name is Lynda and I'm.....

carnivore...

I think I'm an addict. I love beef, chicken, turkey, pork, most fish, some shellfish.

I just made big salad with some steak on top.  I had to force myself to eat the veggies first.  If not  I would not have eat only the steak.  I rarely even eat salads unless they have meat.  While I do not eat meat everyday, most days I do have some sort.

I think I need a support group.

Anyone else have an addiction you want to admit to?

    Hi my name is Lauren and I can't quit stuffing my face with sweets. And it's not even store bought stuff. I make the shiit myself and still complain that I'm getting fat, whist munching on yet another piece of peanut brittle. I cannot stop baking, making candy, and then consuming it.

    If I was living in France that would become my new addiction.

    I ate practically an entire bowl of grape tomatoes last night.  I guess that's better than chips, although I love those too.

    Sorry, lynda, I can't join your support group.  But I will support your support group, lol.

    I also discovered the magically wonderfullness of cooking stuff in goose fat.

    We had potatos cooked in it and then they made a pan gravy with it. 

    This newest ingredient can't be good for me, but does your H have any other suggestions as to how I can incorporate this magic into my life?

    I'm addicted to cheese. Extra sharp NYstate white cheddar is my current favorite, but I'm not all that picky. I love brie, havarti, Emmental Swiss, Gruyere, parmesan, feta, bleu, pepperjack... as long as it is natural cheese, I pretty much like it.

    aMrs, with you living in France I can completely understand your addiction.

    Cupcakes.

    I can eat the entire batch in a weekend, and can justify each one in my mind because, "they're small" and "it's only one" each time I cram another one in my mouth.

    I also buy too many books. DH says I will have to move into the garage if I buy any more, but I just can't stop!

    ditto on bacon.

    DH will make us little BLT's.  OMG they are so good.  Basically it's a hollowed out cherry tomato stuffed with a mixure of bacon and mayo, topped with a sprout.  You just pop them in your mouth.  Yum, yum..

    That settles it.  We're moving to France.  Really, FI and I have discussed possibly moving there in our "golden years", the 1/4 inch bacon just solidified it. ;)

    So is my husband. He does not know there are some on island and I plan to keep it that way.   Now when we go NYC... He goes crazy over them.

    Oh, and he plays them on his Grand Theft Auto game...

    It's not that bad. You just use the thing to scope melons with.   The final product is so good it's worth it.
