I just wanted to say that life is really nice. There's no other word for it. The sky was beautiful at lunch, the majority of my children are angels and I'm surrounded by people who love and care for me. I'm a happy lady!!!!
My breakfast yesterday was yummy - egg whites, curry, garlic and tofu. Today's was on the run - lemon water and 1/2 an hour later, rice chex on the bus, dry. Much better with soy milk but when you're running late.....by the way, Rice Chex or the generic brand I buy seems to be the cereal with the least amount of avoids and is actually healthier than the cereals I find at Trader Joe's. Every thing seems to have wheat or corn. The worst I could find about the rice cereal was some malted barley (and that's almost the last ingredient too) My O loves it. Not as good for him as it is for me but actually a lot better than most other cereals when you read their ingredient listings.
Lunch was a lamb I broiled real quick this morning before iI headed out the door. No, I'm not "Martha Stewart" - I'm sure you're thinking who has time to fix "lamb" for breakfast. But it had been marinating for a while and I didn't want it to go bad - broiling only takes 5 minutes per side. :-) Yeah, I know, I'm eating too much meat. I need more veggies in my life - they're just harder to incorporate when you're on the go. (Was up 'til 1:30am playing Monopoly so not a lot of cooking/chores got done....) Did eat two peaches today (one with lunch and one when I came home) Saving the pits for my husband to smash the natural vitamins out of them. Dinner will be just collard greens - something light. I also had a few pieces of a low-sodium turkey and mozzerella when I got home.
Just watched the movie "Orange County." I had to - it's the place I grew up in. :-) Very funny - recognized several places and stereotypes but, the plotline got REALLY trite the last half hour. And what's up with all the music taking the place of the actor's acting? Still, not a total waste of time - amusing but definately Jack Black's worst film - totally over the top and not in a good way - he only made me laugh once. Too bad, he's really funny when he puts his mind to it....(High Fidelity)
Enough of the movie critiques - I have to fix some collards - ever so tasty. I like them much more than dandelions. Dandelions are still very bitter after you cook them; collards are just d*** delicious. Enjoy the nice weather, if you have it and try to find the good in the weather that makes you sad. Stay healthy......and away from the M&M's!!!!! I had some at 1am and they gave me a naughty stomach ache - not fun :-(
