Week 14 Friday (4/11/14)

Recipe Review      

Today’s Recipe and Location:  Cheese Grits
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks:  Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl
                  Pages  164 - 165     Copyright:  2009  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 429 calories per serving, if 12 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         Here is my previous review when I made them with the Pork Chops and Apples:
         The grits, they were spectacular. I loved the bacon and cheese because it made them so filling. Eating this dish took me right back to living in Panama City, Florida and the yummy grits at Harbor House Restaurant on the beach. To me, there is nothing better for breakfast, lunch, or dinner than cheese grits.  They are so filling and rich to eat. This is one southern food that is amazing and one I will never forget.

Why Weight?

         I know the experts say that it is foolish to face the scale every day but I totally disagree.  As a person who has struggled with weight since adolescence, I need to know exactly where I stand with my weight. I find it comforting rather than stressful.
         I think this is not a good idea for everyone, but I also don’t believe in making a blanket statement for everyone to only weigh once a week or month. 
         I also find it hysterical for me to imagine not weighing at all. Some people just say, watch how your clothes fit and never weigh again.  I would blow that for sure. I am pretty black and white about this issue for myself. I need to weigh every day and continue on the path to success.
