    Ummmm...leftover cake?

    Is that like leftover wine? Not sure those words belong together ;-)

    It was an oversight that appears to have been quickly corrected.

    I'm probably being petty in another thread.

    You earned it, I just happened to be there when you went over the top.

    Congrats, you will get the Eleven Sporkz Club paperwork in the mail. As Treasurer, just sent the initiation fee to me.

    Yup, put it on about 2 1/2 hours ago. 14.4 pounds before trimming. Not sure if it will be lunch or dinner tomorrow. At 1 - 1.5 or so hours per pound, big variance.

    Of course, given that you are in Texas, I gotta warn that BBQ pork butts are more comfortable for me. Brisket is less forgiving and still working on it. So, no promises.

    Just made it to 11? Better send an updated resume. PM me your new plans? I know a lot of people in this town. Would love to be able to help.

    I had the Pop Tarts this morning. Yes, toasted or at least warmed up. My ban on sweets was in my home(yes, these broke that ban.) Like luburch, I found myself all to often with "leftover" cake, cookies, or candy in the home. And I would consume it at all hours of the day. Pre-breakfast, as breakfast, mid-day snack on weekends, and late night pre-bed hunger pangs satisfier. Ice cream in particular somehow always ended up in my freezer. Not sure how it got there, truly a mystery, but I'm not one to leave food to waste. (Well, maybe brussel sprouts, but luckily those haven't invaded my home in some time). So, avoiding those random late night predations and more consistent eating on weekends has aided my waist line. I still have a candy bar at work several times a week. What I am a bit bothered by is that my soda intake has gone up. I mainly drink diet sodas, so the artificial sweeteners appear to be part of my body's compensation for the missing sweets.
