How ‘can my weight be up 2 lbs. in just a few days? I mean GEEZ … Turkey and/or beef sandwiches on gluten-free bread and salads all week … Oh wait … Could it be the White Chocolate Peppermint Bark cheesecake … NO because I made it last 4 days … UGH! Do you think I’m fooling myself? Can you relate?
Yep … these are just a FEW of the delicious foods I ate this weekend at the annual Greek Festival. Every Greek Orthodox Church has a festival once a year, and ours rates amongst the top of the best or so I think! I always try to enjoy the foods I don’t cook often and have fun fooling myself into believing I am eating my YiaYia’s cooking. I’ve been doing these festivals since I was a very young girl growing up in Chicago and always told my friends that the calories don’t count if you are a Xeni. Me, however … I won’t get on the scale for a few days at best!
The festival closed at 3:00 and I did not bring food home with me. I actually felt hunger pangs around 6:00 … oh no … what am I going to do!?!?! And then I started craving my VI Protein Crunch Cereal of all things. So … I put together a nice bowl mixed with banana and chocolate coconut granola and voila … ahhhh … taste buds satisfied once again!
So until next year … STEEN IYIA MAS and OPA!
