Will we ever need to eat again? Big breakfasts of sausage cheese balls, omelettes, and pancakes. Lasagna stuffed with cheese and meat sauce. An enormous dinner at the local steakhouse. What a dinner that was! I tried flaming saganaki for the first time and think I'm smitten! For those of you who are unfamiliar with saganaki, as I was, it's a dish of fried kefalograviera cheese, flambeed in brandy and topped with lemon juice. If only our waitress had been a little more exuberant with her "Opa!"

And the baked goods, which are still around. I had made shortbread, the daughter brought a coffee cake, I made a fresh apple cake for the birthday boy, then the son wanted chocolate chip cookies to take back, but he left behind the slightly overcooked ones, and I had a craving for chocolate haystacks. I didn't use enough chocolate in the haystacks, but they are still pretty tasty. Daughter took some of the cake, shortbread, and haystacks away, but there is way too much still here. My waistline does not need this! I'll have to try to get a little disciplined again before holiday feast time rolls around!
