Lemon Loaf

Made this for a dungeons and dragons game I went to last night. We were so engaged with the game and getting our characters put together that we didn’t have much time to taste it. That and one of the folks at the game is on Atkins, once I found out it seemed rather cruel to engage in carb deliciousness in front of someone trying to avoid them. We did when we finally got home though! Num! What is it about helping to kill a couple of skeleton creatures and a corpse lobster monster that can make a girl so hungry? You know, there’s some good eatin’ in those lobster monsters ya know. Cast burning hands!

I love that movie. It has been not only amusing but inspiring. Definitely a good workout movie….and I adore Simon Pegg.
