Cheryl planned the party today with just family. She let me know Wednesday night that she would be doing this and I asked her what she wanted me to bring. "You always come up with good stuff!" So I set about checking my Snacks Pinterest board.
I came across two recipes that I wanted to make. The first was Bacon Wrapped Smokies with Brown Sugar and Butter. Don't they look amazing? And they tasted just as good!
|Bacon wrapped smokies. pickles, chips, guacamole, salsa, cheese n crackers, nut snacks, and...|
|Corn dip, fruit, cheeses, burgers and toppings, coleslaw, baked beans, and...|
|One of the dogs (we think it was Sophia) got on the coffee table and licked the frosting off that corner!|
What I ate was a few chips with guacamole, those evil bacon wrapped smokies, a little bit of my corn dip with a few fritos; and then dinner consisted of a burger with cheese (no bread), a serving of baked beans, and a small serving of coleslaw.
We visited, played games...

All in all I feel it was a successful day because I am not eating as much when I do waiver, and I have not felt deprived in the least on my modified Atkins plan.
Now all I have to do is get thru the next two birthdays (Cheryl on the 23rd and Captain's on the 24th). Fortunately the other birthday on the 25th is out of town so we probably won't celebrate with them.
