I'm back - 8# heavier - belch!

I got several cookbooks for Christmas and absorbed myself in trying a lot of new (and, unfortunately, fattening) recipes the past couple of months. Julia Child was the main culprit - I can see why she wasn't modeling competition for Heidi Klum and Elle McPherson. I gained 8# and now have to start taking it off.
PS: I really like the new format!

Hopefully not too long at the higher weight. At the store today I picked up some fruits, veggies and boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I attribute 4# of my gain to Julia, 2# to Baking Illustrated, 1# to your bread pudding and 1# to jkath for getting me hooked on Fontina.

It's nice to be in the same company as Julia and jkath!

Perhaps you could shovel some more snow as part of your workout...........

Welcome back, Otter! I was afraid you were in hibernation from that MN winter!

And you wonder why I don't use my Baker's Illustrated much! ;-)

After Buckytom was kind enough to post some bread recipes I found my book. Plus, I had previously emailed eSalton, and they took forever to reply, but finally sent me an email that had even more recipes. I now have a dangerous amount of bread recipes and too many good cookbooks. With the MN weather being what it is, it's easy to eat too much and exercise too little. I had just a pear for breakfast and am about to take my dog Bridget for a l-o-n-g walk.
