Perhaps I should change the name of Broken Cookies Don’t Count to Not Feeling the Focus or Focus? What Focus? I talk about it a lot. I do not seem to achieve it. It seemed that every time I tried to start a project yesterday, I got interrupted.
Riding my exercise bike. I was excited to finish one book and start another. Gail called and we talked a while and made plans to Skype later in the afternoon. I started to do the dishes (yes, dishes are sometimes left in the sink overnight. I really need to fire “The Help!”) My phone rings and it’s Gail, they’re ready to Skype…right then! It was great fun and she showed me all of the treasures she’s been getting for her cabin in Maine And some things she’s gotten for me! I’ll have lots to show you when she gets back from Florida.
Finished the dishes and had breakfast. Ok, so that’s backwards but here it is.
Lemon Chobani and Fiber One. So good. Gail taught me that combo and it’s great for breakfast, lunch or a snack.
I got dressed and started on cleaning/organizing a particularly offending dresser in the bedroom. Ralph needed to run some errands and wanted me to come along. With the bed scattered with stuff, we left on our errands.
Since we were in the shopping center where Subway is, he suggested lunch. I thought for a moment…Wednesday…Weigh in on Saturday??? I decided if I only got a 6 inch sub I’d be ok. I thought I might cave when I put in my order but I didn’t!! 🙂
The Southwest sauce on my sub inspired me when it was time for dinner. I’ve mentioned that I’m trying to make my own dressings for salads. Here’s my latest.
1 Tbsp of olive oil
1.5 Tbsp of red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp of honey
1 Tbsp of plain yogurt, I used Greek
1 tsp of Penzeys Arizona Dreams seasoning
1 Tbsp of water (as extender for Big Salad!)
Romaine, plum tomatoes, carrot, shredded cheese and pumpkin seeds. I’m out of almost everything! I need to get to the produce market! 😦 I forgot to add my crock pot black beans to the photo, but 1 cup of beans joined the fun!
All joined together in the wonderfulness that is the Big Purple Bowl! This was a really good salad. My dressing didn’t taste exactly like the Southwest sauce at Subway but it was delicious and I’ll make it again. I’m having such fun with this I think I’ll start a new feature. I think I’ll call it Dressing Up! That’ll confuse people! 😉
