If you like food...

Omi is in town...
Omi is German and that is what we call our German grandmother!
And Omi loves to cook.
And we don't mind.
Here is proof and here is almost every meal she has made that I have eaten.
I have missed a few meals like Tuesday night...but you get the point.
We been eating goood.

Let me show you the feast(s).

// Bacon wrapped pork (got this recipe), Rhodes rolls, steamed broccoli (my fav), rice & a yummy gravy!

with... cucumber salad (got this recipe)!
I remember eating this when I was younger at Omi and Opi's house in Alabama and not really liking it.
Now I do! Guess when you get older you like more things?

// Raspberry cream pie!
Got this recipe and this was ah-mazing!
Only thing is there is a trick to getting the raspberry top layered jello out of the pan (w/o messing up the raspberries) that I need to learn...

// Banana cream pie...delish.

// Pork, gravy w/mushrooms, egg noodles, and broccoli!
I need to learn how to make this gravy.

// Spaghetti pie! Now this thing is good.
There are a ton of ingredients...need to get the recipe.
Actually let me stop there and say that for the rest of the meals she makes.
Now I won't have to type it here and there.

// Ribs, rolls, corn on the cob (see the weiner dog corn on the cob holders at the top of my plate?!), a baked potato with chives, butter, and sour cream, and a great salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, celery, and mushrooms!

// My FAVORITE.
Angel food cake w/cool whip and strawberries.
She had a layer of strawberries in the middle of this divine dessert.
Usually I just layer em on top of the cool whip.
This way is better.

How much weight have I gained?
No clue. I don't have a scale but getting one is on my to-do list hehe.
I'm not too worried about it.
But if you are serious, I guess maybe I have gained 1 lb...so sue me.
And she'll be in town until mid-February...hehe.

What is your favorite dessert?! Angel food cake? :)

  5. I always gain weight when we go to visit family because there is always food available. At home I'm good at eating my 3 meals a day with maybe a late night snack, but with family the meals are all huge and there are always in between meals too.

    That all looks so yummy!
