Apple Pie, Oh My!

I gained a couple pounds while we were on vacation and I was okay with that.  But now that we are back, I'm still putting on weight.   I don't suppose it could have anything to do with this, right?

Apple Blackberry Pie
I used this recipe but added a couple handfuls of blackberries.  I also add some oats to the streusel topping because I like that. 

I did attempt to be somewhat healthy with dinner.  I started with chard -- I just love how colorful it is.

I cooked it, drained it, and then added it to a creamy cheese sauce.  I poured the sauce over browned ground beef and topped it off with more cheese.  I put it in the oven until the cheese was nice and bubbly.  -- um, not sounding low cal, is it.

And, we had to have this nice crusty loaf of bread.  It jumped into my shopping cart.  Honest.  I don't know how it happened.  But then I had to eat a bunch of it.  I'm a sucker for fresh bread.

Yipes!  I'm thinkin' I will avoid the scale for a few days...
