In everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose...in our latest season, with only a vague plan and a touch of creativity, we're off on another adventure. Half of this twosome is retired; my half will probably never know what that means. I promise to share.Hate to disappoint, but no travels out of the ordinary this week. I did spend two days at the Chocolate Affaire (sold a bunch of books), but the intake of food is sending me off in another direction today. No eye-opening ways to save $$$ either, but a dessert that is not costly and will have your guests drooling.
So, back to food. I've heard of negative calorie food. Celery supposedly takes more calories to digest than it has. Well, probably not. I took five minutes and did a little research. I think you can find anything on the Internet you want to back your beliefs. I'm going with this one! I did find a list of foods, low enough in calories compared to calories expended digesting them, that is a plus. I'm going to try a couple of weeks eating these foods:
black coffee (okay, this one may not happen...I love my flavored creamer)
very lean meat like turkey and chicken

In a crock pot, layer the following ( a single layer of each):
Two cans of apple pie filling
One box of spice cake mix
Two sticks of butter (yeah, just plop on top)
Cook for 2 1/2 hours on high
So yummy! Not to be repeated for at least a month.
