WIAW~Battling the Plague, Still

Today I’m armed with more food photos so I don’t feel like such a dud when I link up to What I Ate Wednesday.  That’s the great link up created by Jenn at Peas & Crayons.  Be sure to stop by when you’re finished here to check out the other great blogs that link up there each week.

First, just to let you all know, I went to the doctor on Tuesday and the verdict…I have bronchitis.  Yuck.  I’ve never been sick for this long before.  I hate it.  I don’t get sick. In fact I saw Ralph’s doctor today rather than my doctor in the practice.  The doctor looked at my chart and said, “You don’t get sick very often, do you?”  Well, no I don’t.  Now I’m on antibiotics.  Hopefully, this will fix me up, because I’m SICK of being sick and all this coughing.

On to the food!

Peas and Crayons

I’ll have to warn you that it’s heavy on breakfast.



This was one of our favorite breakfasts when I was in Florida.  Morningstar Farms maple sausage along with a mix of a quarter cup of egg substitute mixed with a quarter cup of egg whites.  The egg combo only counts as 1 Point and the sausage 2 Points.  Very filling breakfast for 3 points!

We were celebrating St. Patrick’s Day at my sister Ele’s on Saturday. Dinner was traditional…



Of course everyone else was eating the corned beef.  For me it was cabbage with ketchup (learned that from Ralph) potatoes and the centerpiece…Ele’s macaroni and cheese.  So good.



Of course there was also home-made chocolate cake.  So good!


This was breakfast last weekend at some point.  I’ve been feeling so yucky for such a long time that I’m not sure when it’s from.  Mushroom and spinach omelette with sliced tomatoes.  Very good.

Tuesday after my doctor’s appointment, we went out to lunch, but I opted for breakfast again.



It was a pepper and onion omelette with sliced tomatoes.  Helped to make me feel better for a while before I started coughing again.

So that’s it for me today.  I’ll get back on track soon and I can tell you, that can’t happen soon enough for me.

Be sure to check out the other blogs at Peas & Crayons and join in the fun!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!

  2. Those omelets look so yummy! I have completely forgot about their existence until now 😉

    • I’m a big fan of omelettes when I go out to eat, Greta. Easy for me to count for Weight Watchers and a good boost of protein. Too good reasons I think. Most diners will let you order breakfast anytime so I take advantage of that. Have a great day!

  3. Aw being sick is no fun! I hope you’re able to kick it soon! Your food looks yummy though!

  4. Get bettter, what ever this bug is, it’s been hanging on like a tick, especially in our family
