Happy Good Friday/Easter!

Happy Good Friday!  My mom got me thinking yesterday because she was saying how Good Friday is depressing.  I, personally, always liked Good Friday because it always falls on a Friday and who doesn't like Fridays?  It meant the last day of no meat on Friday's, the last weekend of sacrifice, and that Easter was only two days away.  She always preferred Holy Thursday because it was all about the Last Supper and Good Friday is all about the crucifixtion which, if you actually take the time to think about it, is very sad. She's right, of course, so special thanks to my mom for depressing me on this Friday morning.  LOL.  However, it is still a Friday and I am in desperate need of one so I will, at least, be thankful for that.  I have reigned in my eating a good bit this week so feeling better about things on that front.  However, we had Mexican food last night and other than a taco salad (which I didn't have) low fat/low cal just isn't really available.  It was yummy though and my girls ate some most of the fried icecream.  So..for the weekend, I will leave you pics of my girls.  The first few are them enjoying the spoils of our trip to New Orleans.  The last bunch are of Easter Egg Rice Krispy Treats we made last weekend.  I'm proud to say I only ate two.  The girls ate a few and the rest went to work for coworkers to feast on.  If you have kids, I highly recommend this little adventure...they loved it!





After we finished, I let them dip strawberries in the chocolate and chow down.  They were so excited. And yes, I had two chocolate covered strawberries. MMMMMM....



You may have noticed something off about the final product...for instance, one of the treats are a lot darker and a lot BIGGER than the others.  Well, here's what happend. I had enough rice krispy mix left for two eggs but only one mor slot in my handy dandy deviled egg tupperware thing.  So I made one GIANT egg.  So we decided since it was the last one to have some fun with it, so we dipped the entire egg in chocolate and then rolled it in Coco Pebbles cereal.  Oh.My.God.  For a chocoholic, it was absolutely, positively sinful...not to mention delicious!  So there you have it.

Happy Easter Everybody!
