Parmesan Carrot Fries

6 large carrots
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1/4 cup Olive oil
garlic powder
salt and pepper
Cut carrots into strips.  Mix together all of the other ingredients in a bowl.  Add the mixture to the carrots.Toss gently to coat evenly.Spread evenly on a baking sheet.  Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, bake for about 15 minutes, then turn, baking for another 10-15 minutes or until crispy.My plate with the shredded BBQ Chicken.img_3578

These tasted a lot like sweet potato fries, but not as sweet.  I really liked them.  Carrots are always available, and these make a nice vegetable side alternative.

Project Runway 

I saw the advertisement for the new season of Project Runway Season 16 last night to begin this week.  The show is a definite indulgence for me (and drives David crazy as he doesn’t like it).

I usually love this show just on the basic fashion and sewing competition.  This season however, excites me even more due to the fact that they will be using models in a range of sizes – from a size 2 to a 22!!!!! LOVE THIS.

Even though I have lost weight, I love seeing opportunities for larger women to feel confident in their clothes– joy.  So many clothing companies (in my past) made me feel like I should always wear black, and my arms are four feet long.  More exposure on all types of media to showcase women in all sizes is for the better I think.

What are your television indulgences?  Food?  Housewives (ugh)?

S’more’s Day

I really have never been a big fan of smores.  Too messy, have to build a fire.   And today is National Smore’s Day…and I don’t want to build a fire…

Love this yogurt! This flavor has become my favorite.

National Junk Food Day

So apparently today is National Junk Food Day…and since surgery I definitely have some cravings that are not good for me or my sleeve. 

Crunchy Cheetos. Butterfinger Bites. 

Both of these are evil for me to have around, but having a bite or two is okay just not everyday. Today is a day for treats.

Happy Friday.

Another one of my indulgences are magazines. I love them. I used to subscribe to many of them, now I just pick up one or two when I am at the store.

I keep them in a basket by my chair, and will read them and then reread them.

I love them.  I used to get them on my tablet. It really isn’t the same as flipping through the pages.

What are some of your indulgences?
