I was craving oatmeal this morning but I only like it using milk vs water. Since I had no milk, I chose to eat a whole wheat bagel with a very tasty low fat jam. I threw in a banana too just because I thought having some fruit would be a good way to start the morning. I don’t normally have jam for breakfast but the truth is, I was having withdrawals from not having soda for 3 days, which might almost be my record, so I need some kind of sweet fix. Anyways, the bagel was delish and whole wheat is really starting to grow on me. Baby steps……
After a horrible morning of working with my tech gal trying to fix all the errors and mishaps of my site, I was starving by lunch, not to mention thirsty too because I don’t think I had drank any water all morning. Because the big boys aren’t home during the day, I keep quick and easy meals on hand for me and the hubs. Truett either eats with us or something he’s picked out himself like PB&J and apples slices.
Today, I chose Steak Gorgonzola from Stouffer’s. It’s from their new Sautes for Two line. I have to say, the smell of the roasted red peppers as soon as I opened the package was amazing. Not sure I’ve ever smelled something so fresh & flavorful from something still frozen. It literally takes less than 15 minutes to make which was perfect because we had hay to haul to the yearlings, a house to clean, and some mineral to put out and that doesn’t even count chores that needed to be done. –Back to the food. I loved the flavor of this. I mean, it was truly packed with flavor. There was also something elegant, yet completely simple & comfortable about having roasted red peppers, steak, and pasta all for lunch with my man.
I made sure to mix my water up and take with me while we finished working and doing chores. I’m really bad about not drinking enough water and try to keep a 32 oz mug with me at all times full of water. We got chores done and were tuckered out. I decided not to eat. I know…I should have eaten something but I just wasn’t feeling it. My husband ate my FIL’s house with Truett and my older boys ate with their friends in town. I was home alone in the peace and quiet and just wanted to rest. It was a long weekend for us with Truett’s birthday, football, and rain.
