Oh and BTW my legs touch!! It must be the way I was standing in that pic...Haha, I wish!!
Please tell me you get like that too, because after watching, counting, measuring, imagining, dreaming, and rationing my portions sometimes I just want "real food". I mean like good ole' southern cookin that makes me feel better. Last night, I made a meal that would make Luke Bryan have to unbutton his sparkly skinny jeans. It was soooo good and hit the spot!! AND...I would like to add, that all of my dishes were "SKINNY" versions...thank you, thank you very much!! So, here ya go, but WARNING, you might start talkin with a southern drawl and wearing camo...
