Today is the last week of summer break. School starts around here after Labor Day. We don’t have kids, but we live right by a school. I got up early this morning to take a quick spin on the bike. I’ll be needing to avoid the school busses soon for my rides. Morning path.
Purty isn’t it? Only 36 miles to go to hit 400. I am counting down now. I’ll make at least 1 of my monthly goals, hoping to get this one down. 😀
I returned for protein waffles!
Working steadily to lunch time. Back to land meat again, so chicken was on the menu for lunch – surprised?
Baked potato with laughing cow and lots of hot sauce. Yum!
I had a little treat with my latte today.
This is a mini whoopie pie. We went to see a movie last night at the local music house (Casablanca) and they had goodies there and told us to take some home. So, I brought home this cookie!
I finally tried one of those cauliflower crust type of meals for dinner. I followed this recipe. Normally I have seen this with mozzarella and thought the cottage cheese sounded interesting.
I think my batter was too wet. Here is the finished product.
They were supposed to be more like “breadsticks.” John said they were more like hashbrowns and I agree. He actually liked them. I liked them dipped in sauce, but most certainly not breadsticks or crust like at all.
Again, I get fooled in by people exclaiming how it is just like pizza crust. Not! It actually is very low cal and pretty filling. After saying all that, I would eat it again. This whole plate is about 160 calories. I ate about 2 cups of cauliflower for dinner 😯
I have some mango slices ready to go if I get hungry later. I’ve been feeling really in a good place about my food the last couple weeks with enough things to make me happy without overdoing it. I have also been sticking pretty well to a rule that if I want something to eat at night, it has to be fruit and not anything like chocolate chips or cereal. I find that is very satisfying for me most nights, although the occasional ice cream cone makes an appearance
Tonight is relaxing and Grimm! Hooray for vegging out 😀 I swear I relax more on a weeknight than I ever do on weekends.
It’s sticky and humid here today. I can’t complain too much about the weather. Hope everyone is safe from Isaac!
