Lately I have a hard time remembering what day it is. It’s a good thing my phone Tells me or I might be at a total loss. 😉
But other than that… Things are good!
I love that so many people commented on my post about the book Holes. I’ve gotten some suggestions for other Young Adult fiction and I would appreciate any suggestions you might like to make. We all know that I NEED more books to read! 😉
I’m currently reading this..
Cage of Stars by Jacquelyn Mitchard. Got it at the Goodwill (of course) which is why it’s the large print version. Don’t need that quite yet! I wasn’t sure what I’d think but so far I’m enjoying it. It’s written from the perspective of a 13-year-old girl whose family suffers a terrible tragedy. It feels like a Young Adult novel. I’ll keep you posted on what I think.
How about some food?!
I’m so excited that I found this at Aldi…pomegrante Kefir. It’s tasty on its own and especially good in…
Overnight oats! Half cup of oats, Half cup Kefir, Half cup almond milk, in the morning topped with home frozen blueberries and microwaved for 1.5 minutes. So good. The Kefir makes it a little juicier than if it was regular yogurt, and very tangy from the pomegranate flavor. Really good!
I’m also very excited that Aldi now carries, fat-free half & half. I picked some up. They also have almond milk now too. I haven’t tried it yet, I had just gotten some at Shoprite before I found it at Aldi. Next time.
I really loved my Wednesday night dinner.
The assemblage… crock pot black beans, brown rice left over from the deconstructed veggie burgers, scallions, red and green bell pepper and shredded cheese. Also olive oil to start and veggie broth and various spices…I always forget what I put in…:-(
So pretty and colorful while it’s cooking!
It was just delicious! I’ve gotten out of the habit of making grains to go with my veggie combos. I need to do that…they are much more filling that way.
So that’s my bits and pieces for today. I need to get things done today! As always on Friday, I’m wondering how I’ll do when I weigh in at Weight Watchers tomorrow. It’s been a pretty good week. I’ve written Everything down…even the things I wasn’t proud of…At the bottom of my WW journal for Wednesday I wrote…”Don’t Do That Again!” That’s a family joke stemming from something little Michael said to Uncle Ralph. A story for another day…
