I often bemoan on BCDC the fact that I repeat my foods so often, how boring they seem when I look at the photos and how I should change that. I could probably save space on my WordPress account by reusing the photos because they look the same. OK, so I like what I like and I like to repeat. I’m bored too sometimes, Kids.
All that being said, when I got up bright and early on Wednesday into the crock pot went my bag of pre soaked black beans. The result…
These beauties! I’ve said it before, nothing beats the flavor of home cooked beans. They’re so inexpensive, I think this bag cost $1.29 and so easy now that I know how to do them in the crock pot! All I have to do is remember to soak them! I get so many meals out of them, it’s crazy!
Lunch looks pretty familiar over the past couple of weeks…
I am just loving having egg salad ready for a quick lunch. Ralph loves it in sandwiches and I pair it with my low-fat cottage cheese on top of chopped Romaine lettuce. I love to liberally sprinkle Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime seasoning on top. So Tasty!
Something New and Something Old. The something new is that I’ve finally figured out how to use Skype! My best friends Gail and Alice have been in Florida since January. We talk all the time and we’ve done a lot of “talking” about setting up Skype but none of us has actually done it. I decided on Tuesday that I’d take the plunge. Alice scared me yesterday morning by suddenly popping up on my screen. After figuring out a few things, like the fact that I can see her a whole lot better if she turns a light on (!!) we ended the session with plans to meet up again in the afternoon.
Ta Da!!! There they are. We had a wonderful time, laughing hysterically most of the time and having difficulty getting Gail to behave. She insisted on making faces at me the entire time, much as she does when we’re together in person. That’s what happens when you’ve know someone since you were six weeks old. The story our Moms told us was that Gail was born when I was six weeks old. My Mom took me to visit her Mom. They put us in the playpen together and the rest is history. This was great fun and we’ll probably do it every day.
By the time dinner came around, I had no enthusiasm. However, a girl’s got to eat! Started with Morningstar Farms Garden Veggie Patties.
Cooked them up in the microwave topped with some shredded cheese on a sandwich thin.
Nothing fancy. I was hungry so I had two and I had enough Points left to do it. This was very filling and kept me satisfied for the evening with the exception of a Lime Tootsie Pop. I’ve been in pretty good control all week, which makes me happy. Hoping for a good result at Weight Watchers on Saturday.
It’s dreary and overcast and looks like it will be rainy today. I’m not thrilled about that, but what can you do. I’ve also been awake since 3:30am so it will be fun later trying to stay awake. I’m not worried. It’ll all work out.
