So, after my kick to my own pants, I have curbed the excess snacking. It’s not so bad, really. I just needed to adjust my attitude about it all. Not always easy, but manageable 😀 I said other than the oversnacking, my meals are pretty good. I haven’t posted a lot of food stuff since we have been renovating the house, since this blog became the rehab blog!
Here is what I have been eating for meals lately:
I made a batch of overnight slowcooker apple cinnamon steel cut oats from this recipe – although I used the water bath method instead of direct heat.
These were really good, too.
I have been eating more yogurt for lunch than I normally do when it is cold. Not sure why that is. Here is plain greek yogurt with a blueberry compote and some cereal on top.
Mondays are called salmon Mondays because often times we buy salmon on Sunday with grocery shopping and I don’t want to wait to eat it. Of course, John isn’t eating meat now, so I had salmon Monday while John had a meat substitute.
I just baked the salmon with some salt and pepper. Simple, but pretty good – considering I am not the biggest fish fan.
Note that I am doing good with eating more veggies, as promised for 2015! This is a classic “I am not sure what I want for dinner” dinner:
You can never go wrong with an omelet.
I also eat a lot of chicken. Like tonight:
It’s got a wedge of laughing cow on top with some hot sauce.
I used the slow cooker 3 times in as many days making stuff, too. It’s really a great appliance. I did the cheesy chicken corn chili:
That was good for some lunches and a dinner.
My snacks usually consist of fruit or a protein bar, although one of them is always a latte. Never gonna change that one 😉 Maybe a couple pieces of chocolate.
So anyway – back to my passion. I started work on my chair. I have 2 chairs now that need reupholstering and I am starting with this one since it was cheaper 😳 and it doesn’t need to have the springs messed with. The other chair I need to redo the webbing on. Anyway, here it is in it’s naked glory:
Please excuse my basement work area. It’s a bit of a mess. With the fabric off, I glued the joints, which is why the clamp is on there. Now the chair will be solid again. The inner stuff on this chair is in excellent shape and won’t need replacing, so it is just the fabric on it. I will need to either restain or paint the chair wood (thinking stain) and then pull out about 1000 staples left in the wood. I bought fabric for the 2 chairs and it is a plum colored suede, so hopefully it will look nice when I am finished. It is a bit of a tricky cushion, so it will be a challenge.
One good thing about the cold weather – I am getting projects done!
