Famous Bartlett Syrup

Well I was looking over my recipe book the other day and wondering what I have eaten over the years that my family and I have enjoyed. And I remembered a syrup that we had at the Lombardi's house for pancakes. The Bartlett's have made this syrup for quite a few years and it was new to me. It is really good!! I could not remember the recipe so I contacted Lindsay via the email because they live in Florida now! (and it was 16 degrees here yesterday and snowing today). She says they enjoy the sun! Well anyway here it is! Enjoy it and don't eat too much of it!

Bartlett Syrup: (That is my name for it not theirs)
1 Cup of Cream
1 Cup of Sugar
1 Cup of Butter
Heat it on the stove until right before it starts to boil then remove it from the heat and add some vanilla!

It is good!

Bad Diet...Bad Diet!!

OK how is your diet going? :) Well last week it was Katy's Birthday! So we went out to dinner, she decided that we should go to The Cheesecake Factory. I think their was about 12 of us that went. Kind of funny how our little family is growing. Everyone brought their spouse or a date! Everyone seemed to get something different. I got the Chicken and Biscuits. I did really well and ate about 1/2 of it, and took the rest home in a doggie bag. Oh I did eat a little bit too much bread also. Well anyways I thought I was doing pretty good and the waiter asked.........OK what kind of cheesecake would you like for dessert? aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Connie and I decided we could share one. Their portions seem to be pretty good sized. I think everyone got a different kind and I chose the the one called Chris's Outrageous Chocolate Cake!!! It was good! I'll have a picture at the end here. So anyways We ate about 1/2 of it or so. The next day I'm cruising around on the Inte…
