Not wholesome goodness...just goodness.  This is my stash from the chocolate buy at the "Cow Pie" store.  One bag is missing because Quin grabbed it as soon as he saw what was inside...a giant peanut butter cup.  So we have the Cow Chips, Packer Puddle (the white lump), and the Irish Creme and Peanut butter squares.  Oh, so good. this stash will last me probably a whole month if I eat one piece a day....or less if my kids find it!
See how big that "Puddle" is. White chocolate, caramel and cashews.....need I say more?
And this is Corn Saute.  Fresh sweet corn, fresh green peppers and cilantro from my window sill garden....sauteed in butter and sprinkled with cumin and salt and pepper.

Remove the fresh corn from the ear, chop green pepper into very small pieces (corn kernel size) and saute in the butter with the cumin, salt and pepper....toss the chopped cilantro into the pan and saute for a few seconds more.  Serve as a side dish or just eat (which is what I did).

So, besides eating and hiding my goodies, I have been running my kids around like a crazy mom.  At least I have maintained my weight loss all summer.  My weight fluctuates 2-3 pounds depending on when I weigh I really am sticking right where I left off....but with school starting in a few days I can hit the treadmill again with regularity and drop those last 15. No gain, even with a little chocolate intake!!

Your sweet treats look yummy as does the corn. Mmm Will have to try that sometime. Haven't had anywhere near the amount of fresh sweet corn I'd like yet. Mostly cause whenever we have had a chance to actually have a meal together it's been too flipping hot to cook corn. 'sigh'

See chocolate is good! That stash you have looks like the perfect go to pile to have. Yum!

Yes, it's getting crazy here too, and I'm not sure I am liking it. Maybe getting the new car isn't all what it is cracked up to be. LOL Although, I have found one I really really like. But not sure if I like rwd, and we found that in a lot of new cars. Oh and what's up with the V8's in these new cars, hasn't someone mention the price of gas. grr

That corn saute looks yummy! And the chocolate...mmmm! The Packer puddle sounds awesome (even with a name like "packer" in it! hee hee...)

I wish all of you who are losing weight would send me some motivational vibes. I need to drop 20-25 pounds and just can't get in a routine. I need to work on that....
