Hi to all the new visitors who came over from Caitlin’s blog! Hope you stick around for a while and feel free to say ‘hi’! Join me on my snacktacular day, won’t you?
I really like this combo. The banana was bigger than usual, though, so these were a little on the sweet side.
How about the authorities catching that NYC car bomber? How fast was that?? They rock! I can’t believe how little they had to go on and found a suspect so quickly. If only all suspects were caught so fast.
Anyway, I got down to work fast today. I like days like today where it goes by quick. Pit stop for lunch.
Scrambled egg wrap with laughing cow and hot sauce. I made a real mess with this wrap, too.
Then the snackies started hitting me. Hello PMS. I got a piece of toast with nutbutter.
Then a couple of cookies with my latte 🙄
After I finished up work, I took a walk. Went fairly far today, which was good. Then I had another snack when I got home before dinner:
Why I put fluff on a date is beyond me. This was beyond sweet! If the nut butter had been a salted kind, it probably would have made me have another, though. That sugar monster sure is a beast sometimes when he gets loose.
I had someone email me and ask who cooked in our household. Well, the answer is that we both do. We tend to eat at the same time, but we don’t always eat the same thing. We each generally fix our own breakfast and lunch, although we sit together and eat most days (unless I am up early and John is still sleeping). Dinner time can be the same food or not. As you know, I love my broccoli. John does not like broccoli. So, I am always cooking that for myself. If I make a sweet potato, we generally share it. One or the other of us will often fix the protein choice, and then we each add our own sides. John does not eat as many veggies as I do, and he tends to eat more carbs with dinner than I do. Sometimes one of us will cook the whole meal, like soup or stew or pizza. We both really enjoy cooking. We often work in tandem in the kitchen. Kind of like an old married couple. Not that we’re an old married couple or anything…
For example tonight, we were eating up leftovers, so we each had our own items. I used cooked chicken for…..
wait for it….
You knew it was coming. 😀 Yum! (Celebrating National Salad Month, too) John had pork, strawberries, and Sun Chips (which I snuck some of).
Speaking of Sun Chips – have you tried these with the new compostable bag? This is the loudest bag ever! I can’t believe how much noise it makes. I decided I am going to put this bag to the test and bury it out in a spot in my garden and see what happens. I’ll take pictures along the way.
Also, I am going to be doing a little interview with John now that he has maintained his weight loss for 6 months or so. If you have anything you want to ask him, email me or post in the comments.
I am going to be snacking more tonight. Ugh! It’s just been one of those days. We are going out tonight for some coffee and to pick up a few groceries – more fruit for me, yay! We normally shop just once a week, and then pick up more milk during the week. I have a feeling I might be nibbling on something with my latte….
Question: How many times do you shop in a week?
