Happy Pi Day!

It’s Pi Day!  John’s favorite day.  His very favorite dessert is pie and he is a math whiz.

No pie for breakfast, just some pumpkin oat bran.

The weather has turned cold again. Sigh.

Busy day with work today, which is good.  It’s been a bit spotty lately and nice to have the last day of the pay period full of work to do.

Good news on the salmon front.  For lunch, John made the salmon patties from the canned vertebrae salmon that I attempted last week.  He picked out all the bones and made up the patties.


Verdict? I would eat them again! Surprisingly.  They were pretty good and if I don’t think about the can from last week, I am okay.  John has to fix them from now on or we have to buy the pouch salmon without bones.

My guitar was *finally* repaired. That took forever.  Since John was going to be out tonight with the car, I wanted to pick it up this afternoon. Of course, since it was pi day – we had to make a stop for some coffee:


And pie!  John got a peanut butter chocolate pie.    He let me swipe a couple bites and it was quite tasty.


Yay Pi Day!


Then it was picking up my guitar. Pretty much as good as new. There is a little chip in the finish at the bridge that pulled up when the bridge flew off, but other than that – it looks good.  They did put 6 new strings on it, so it will be a bit annoying with tuning for the next week or so until they get stretched appropriately.


I am sooooooo happy to have this back!

happy lori

Would that be a happy face? I believe so.  It was all I could do to get back to work.  I could not finish fast enough.

Leftovers for dinner.  The last of the cheesy chicken chili.  I will miss it.


This is how I ate it the 3 times I have had it this week – always with sauteed broccoli.  Creature of habit.

Did some low impact aerobics after dinner and now I have set out my snack for later.  I am feeling almost…. organized??


Now for what I have been waiting to do all afternoon – go play my guitar!

Be Sociable, Share!

    LOLOL. Ditto what Cammy said. The only thing that saved me was telling me it had peanut butter.

    Your snack is what mine are starting to look like. I am trying out having fruit and a little something for dessert.

    So glad about your guitar.

    And the salmon patties. I’m afraid I couldn’t erase that image from my mind long enough to eat them. Which I know is just plain weird. Because Hello? The chicken I gnaw on has bones. If I ever have a steak it has bones. But bones in a can? Ick.

    You are a better woman than I for eating the salmon patties – well, not that I EVER IN A MILLION YEARS would eat fish, but once I’ve been icked out by something, it’s usually off my plate forever…that’s why you don’t hear me mention Clif Bars anymore. 🙁

    On happier news, WOOHOO for getting your guitar back! It looks so pretty and just ready to be played! Good times. 🙂

    The pie pic looks great, but the dieter in me says “really, is that much whipped cream necessary?” – when did I turn?!?!?!?!!

    Wow, what a great looking day! John’s pie looks ridiculously amazing, you got your guitar back. Life is good. I would go with the pouched salmon in the future. Something about knowing the bones were in their would make me woozy. 🙂

    It’s cold here again too and we have more snow today. Boo! Bring on the sunshine and Spring already!!

    Oh my goodness that Broccoli looks like heaven! Can you please tell me how you cooked that? Bear in mind Im not a cook. Actually I hate to cook but alas if I am ever to get my weight under control I need to cook my own food. So please be specific with me when you tell me how to do it lol

      It’s super easy. I use frozen broccoli florets. Just take a teaspoon of oil (I use coconut) and heat it up in a small saute pan. Put in the frozen broccoli with a little salt and pepper. I will put a lid on to let it steam for several minutes, then uncover and cook until it gets a bit of brown on it (the goodness part). It take 10 minutes tops.
