AtoZ Blogging Challenge. Welcome to Luscious Saturday

The brainchild of Arlee Bird, at Tossing it Out


Luscious


I can't say this word without drool being involved. I think of food immediately. Like
this 284 calorie (158 g.) Hot Fudge Sundae with 25% saturated fat content. 

Or (have to have at least one green veggie, right) green beans (1C. 125g), .078g saturated fat--without butter, of course.


Enchilada (1/ 192g) 323 calories, 45% saturated fat!
Hotcakes (2/ 232.g)  520 calories, 29% saturated fat. Oye. Who can eat only 2?
Mud Pie (1/8.5 oz) 680 calories, 49% total fat. Did you know you have to walk 189 minutes to burn 680 calories?

Sorry I have to go eat now! 
Did I make you drool? Hope so. 
Did ruin anyone's favorite food snack by posting the calories and fat information?
Do you care a flying fig about any of this?

  1. I haven't had breakfast yet and now I am starving!
    The word makes me think of lips though...

  2. I'm surprised a hotfudge sundae is only 284 calories. Still too many for me...

    Veggies are terrific roasted, and you can use very little fat when doing so.

    1. They are good roasted or on the bar-b-que. Good girl!

  3. This reminds me of Serendipity III in Las Vegas. Have you ever been? It's in front of Caesar's palace and serves the most delicious treats. I had a deep fried oreo sundae...it was so good.

    1. Sorry, but I'm an equal tantalizer, so all who stopped by got the same treatment.

  9. I should care about the calories and fat but it's hard to. I used to eat anything and not put on weight, but now I'm in my 30s my tummy isn't playing ball any more!

  10. I just ate, but that made me hungry -again-!!

    It all looks so good, though....

  11. It's right before dinner, Lee! *drool*
    Ok, I'll eat the green beans first, then I'll have everything else you showcased. :)

  12. OMGosh love the post and all my favorite food groups are mentioned!

  13. You could've gotten this post sponsored by a restaurant! ;)

  14. Those hotcakes look lush! You're making me hungry. :-)

  15. If I wasn't already stuffed from what I've eaten today, I'd probably want to go out and eat all of this right now! Thankfully I am indeed still full up ;)

  16. LOL...yum yum! My keyboard is drenched in drool. Well, the calories part didn't faze me at all. I burn lots of calories when I am on my shift at work, so this is definitely up my alley. *heading to the ice cream shop across the street**

  17. Costa Coffee cafes do this nasty thing too - put the calorific value of everything next to the food item!! I appreciate why it's done but it sort of takes the joy out of the coffee break somewhat!! LOL!! Take care

  19. I was a professional dancer and singer for a long time and was always on a diet. I hated it. Now that I'm retired, I eat whatever I want, and yes, have gained a lot of weight, but I'm happy and relaxed. That's something money can't buy.
    Loved all the pics! :-)

  20. Hello Lee,

    Yes indeed, a luscious posting. Heck, after reading this and gazing at the photos, I'm more of a drooling wreck than normal.

    Hope you had a nice weekend. Right then, must go back to Canada and have a Tim Hortons doughnut, or donut, sorry spell check...
