Just add gluten

Did anyone else notice the linguistic commonalities between "gluten" and that particular anatomical area that yeasty bready treats, um, enhance?

Before the big (and I do mean big) pregnancy I was limiting gluten and its kissing cousins simple carbohydrates. That minor struggle led to a 23-pound weight loss (and indirectly to the blessed cause of my regain?). Weight loss-schmeight loss. Not so much anymore.

However. An apricot muffin with homemade marmalade sure is delicious. And I really can't see myself from the back view anyway.

Oh gosh - yes - we (me and husband -he's doing some serious PT for a job opportunity) have eliminated the g and the y - I can't even write them. This after months of a weekly pan of the PW's Buttered rosemary rolls....which have translated into buttered rosemary rolls of my own. Lard hep me.
