52 bags {lent}

i just want to hide them in the pantry so i don't have to share with anyone.
the 18 oz bag might last me a week.
maybe.
i'm seriously considering adding them to my year's supply of food storage.
i just think it would be hard to store 52 bags of them.
and not eat them all before easter.
especially in my pregnant and soon to be nursing state.
b/c if you've ever exclusively nursed a baby,
you know that you are eating for two when you're pregnant
{or NOT, but whatever, it's just fun to pretend},
but when you're nursing you get to eat for the entire block.
for an entire year.
AND lose weight.
at least that's how it works for me.
who needs black beans when you have a year's supply of pb eggs?
there's protein in pb eggs!
ok, maybe i need black beans,
but canned mushrooms are questionable.
i'd pick pb eggs over canned mushrooms every day of the week and twice on sunday.
except the sundays i need the canned mushrooms for baked spaghetti.
b/c i surely cannot put pb eggs in baked spaghetti.
but would i really even notice they were missing anyway?
the mushrooms, not the eggs.
i declare not.
pb eggs i would notice.
but not in baked spaghetti.
you get what i'm saying.
it's a good thing i'm not catholic anymore b/c i'd surely have to give them up for lent.
and i swear they'd taste better during lent.
pb eggs,
not canned mushrooms.
b/c everything i gave up during lent always tasted BETTER during lent.
something about the whole wanting what you can't have thing.
i think.
like fast sunday,
but for longer.
AND you don't get to just skip it when you're pregnant or nursing.
or call it quits around lunch.
now that's rough.
52 bags DOES seem a bit excessive though...
no?

Believe it or not, I could never lose weight until I stopped nursing. It's like my body held on to every calorie to make sure I could feed not only my baby but the whole wagon train.

(I always thought I would have made a great pioneering wet nurse.)
