Here are the numbers!!!!
This week: Down 1/2 pound
Overall: Down 9 pounds
I now have pants that really don't fit anymore. I mean they're too big to really wear, even with a belt.
Now you may be wondering why I have the photo posted below on Weight Loss Wednesday. It's posted because this scone is probably the reason I have only lost 1/2 pound this week AND because it's delicious. My daughter made these.
Chocolate Chip-Peppermint Scones
(from the Pink Princess Cookbook)
1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons whipping cream
1/2 cup crushed peppermint candies
powdered sugar for dusting (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add chocolate chips and toss to coat with flour mixture.
Pour 1 cup whipping cream into the mixture, stirring just until ingredients are moistened. Turn mixture out onto lightly floured surface. Knead gently until soft dough forms (about 2 minutes). Pat dough out to about 1 inch thick. Cut out into shapes.
Place scones 1 inch apart on two foil-lined baking sheets that have been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
Brush each scone with the remaining 2 tablespoons whipping cream and sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies.
Bake 15 to 2 minutes or until very lightly browned. Serve warm and dusted with powdered sugar if desired.
WARNING: If you're trying to lose weight having these in the house could be dangerous. I'm proud I only had two in two days. But it was actually dangerous for me to even take the above picture. I so wanted to break off a little piece (just a little piece!) and stick it in my mouth. BUT I DID NOT!!
I'm convinced that keeping weight off has to allow for a treat once in a while.
HAVE A GREAT DAY!!
