I have been so busy with this new business At Home With Debby and trying to get it off the ground. It's been 2 months and I am getting sales and have 5 consultants under me. 

My Curves Complete diet is over - well the once a week weigh-ins that kept me accountable are over.  The diet  eating program is forever. Now I can make choices and not have to fReAk oUt every time I slip up. Accountability is totally over-rated.  And I have neglected all my other blogs - proving that when I diet, it takes everything out of me.   All total I have lost close to 20 lbs.  But I will continue losing 2-4 pounds a month till I get to my preferred weight by my birthday in March.

 Today I have for you a tart I have made for years - since around the late 80's-90's.  It is so good with fresh summer fruit and if you want, you could totally skip the pastry instructions and go out and get a store-ready pie crust and make one big pie/tart.

I will also post this at my Recipes on the Cheap Facebook page.

1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1/4 salt
1/2 c butter - softened and cut into pieces
