I’ve been eating a lot of crap lately. Once the power went out, so did my resolve – right out the window! My crap of choice lately? Amish Friendship bread, aka Cinnamon Heaven in a Loaf Pan. A friend gave me a starter of this and at first I was like, “oh great. Like I really have to time to babysit some mystery batter for 10 days!” But I did, and Oh Sweet Mother of All Things Good, I am so glad I did. It is moist and just a little bit sweet, but what really makes it luscious is the cinnamon sugar crust – that’s right people, the crust is sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and it gets kinda hard, but in totally good way. My kids and I ate an entire loaf of this stuff last night and I just had a slice (ok, two) for breakfast this morning. Mmmmmmmm…warm bread and coffee… excuse me while I drool. Other forms of crap I have consumed include lots and lots of chocolate covered pretzels, lots and lots of crackers and dill dip, lots and lots of hot chocolate with lots and lots of marshmallows. I just can’t seem to get a grip on my healthy eating habits anymore. It seems like it takes me a few days to get back to reality and eat healthy again after jumping headfirst off the wagon into a vat of Rotel dip and chips. Oh, and I haven’t even thought of getting on the treadmill (well, I have thought about it, but that’s about as far as I got)! I am going to try and attempt Week 3 of C25K tonight. I thought about starting over with Week2, but I really think I need to kick it in gear and get busy. We’ll see how it goes tonight. So if anyone wants a starter of this bread, let me know and I’ll send you some, although I don’t know how well it travels through the USPS. Maybe you should just find some Amish in your area and get the starter from them. You’ll be glad you did!
I think I have a crush on the Amish
