Fried wha????

Ok so if you read my post from yesterday I said I was going to a fair last night and intended on having an array of yumminess. So I get there and guess what???? NO FRIED OREOS???? Very bummed about that. I was starving and decided to eat crawfish etoufee for dinner. Yum-mmmmy. So I ate about a cup of etoufee, waited 30 minutes and went hunting for my oreos. No luck so I settled for a fried hostess cupcake. It was pretty tasty but didn't compare to my oreos. Aww well it will do. I thought I'd share an interesting fact about some fair food I investigated yesterday.

Crawfish etoufee (1 serving)= 435 calories
Red beans, rice, and sausage (1 serving)= 2,691 calories!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you believe that????? I was in shock. I have eaten this sometimes at the fair in past years and my jaw hit the floor when I saw these numbers. I was trying to decide if I wanted to eat etoufee or this and obviously I went for the the fairer food! haha WOW! Oh and btw I am like huh on the whole fried butter thing ya'll commented about. That's crazy!!! Wow. That's definitely a heart attack packed in batter! But knowing me I would try it once and love it and then strokeville here I come. Also chocolate bacon does sound yum. I could see how the sweet, fat, and salt would be lovely together! Oh my gosh!

Anyway so after all of this last night I got home and around 10:30pm I felt like I was starving. (I ate all the afore mentioned food at 5:30pm) It had been five hours since dinnner so I wanted at least a little snack. I don't usually go to bed until 12 or 1am so I have time to digest anyway. I need to go grocery shopping so there was not very many choices for a snack unless I wanted to eat corn in a can so I decided I would just bake a Digiorno stuffed crust pizza and eat a tiny slice and give the hubby the leftovers for his lunch today. Well I tried that tiny slice and it was soooo damn delicious I devoured the other half of that slice and ended up eating 2 slices of pizza (330 calories a slice!!!) YEAH! I went over my calorie target by like 600 calories and needless to say I paid for it this morning on the scale when I managed to gain 2.2lbs overnight!!!!!! DAMN IT! Aww well back on the boat today and doing well.

Today's menu:

Breakfast: Hot green tea, french vanilla powder, 1 splenda. Pineapple greek yogurt and slivered almonds.
Lunch: grilled chicken and 2 grilled garlic shrimp and about 1/2 cup of steamed garden veggies (squash, zucchini, plum tomatoes, and carrotts)
Snack: Atkins protein shake (chocolate)
Dinner: Not sure yet. Going grocery shopping and will figure it out then but whatever it is will be good!!!!

TTFN everyone!


  1. One day I will try the Fried Oreo! I'll be dreaming about it all day!

  2. At least you enjoyed it! Those extra pounds will be gone in a day or two.

  3. You totally have me wanting to try fried oreos now. Crazy on the calorie count for the red beans and rice! Sounds like you had fun though and you can always burn off the extra calories from the pizza.


Thanks for the comment! Appreciate it!
