Beginning, Middle and End

The beginning of my Saturday included what all great Saturdays in my life include...a trip to Dunkin Donuts to get these little cuties. They didn't last very long. My only complaint was that they all weren't chocolate. That would have made me love them even more.

The middle of my day included a fun, fun, fun, pumpkin carving party at Natalie's. She wrote a great post about it. You can check it out here.

The end of my day included the lighting of my pumpkin, a late night dinner that I made and a huge compliment about my culinary skills from John.

I made us roast beef sliders with blue cheese crumbles and a little Ranch dressing, then put my own flavor (sauteed onions, garlic and seasoned salt) in some Tositos queso and served the queso with some Tostitos chips that I cut into the shape of footballs. Just kidding. I bought them that way.

Here's the compliment: "This meal is definitely worthy of calorie day."

Why is that such a compliment you ask? Well, Saturday is the one day a week when we get to eat whatever we want. The rest of the week we're pretty healthy. So our Saturdays usually don't include home cooking because especially John feels that home cooking can never quite be unhealthy enough. Until last night. I must say, I was pretty proud of my sliders and my doctoring of processed cheese.

The whole day sounds delicious.

Any day that has Dunkin Donuts at any point in the day is a good day. I could drink one of their iced coffees right now.

Roast beef sliders?! We're coming over.

That does sound like an awesome calorie day.
