Where Have I Been?

Hello all! Sorry I haven’t posted in a couple of days, I just haven’t been feeling very well at all and have had to work so I have been focusing my attention there. I made an appointment with a specialist about my sinus problems and I can’t take any allergy/sinus meds until the appointment so my sinus infection and allergies are in full force. I have been using my neti pot which helps but I am so ready to be over this!

Anyway, I was a good blogger and I photographed my food yesterday, so here it goes.

On my way to work, I had a cinnamon cafe au lait and then once I made it there, I had a banana. The Pro Shop was having issues with their drawer so that was the first thing on my docket and a bowl of cereal just doesn’t go well with that.


Once I had the Pro Shop all sorted out, I went back to my office and had a bowl of shredded wheat with warmed milk. I think I liked it with the warm milk, it shredded wheat kind of separated and took on a softer texture.


I had a hard boiled egg on the side for a little protein.


All of my morning snacks and breakfast held me over for a really long time. I wasn’t ready for lunch until 12:30! I had a bowl of 16 bean soup


and a chocolate pudding cup.


I had a snack just before leaving of greek yogurt with thawed frozen raspberries and honey. I forgot to take a picture of it because I was in a hurry to leave. I had to go to Trader Joes after work to stock up on yogurt and cereals. They didn’t have any 0% yogurt that didn’t expire in a couple of days so I bought the European kind and plan to strain it myself.

Once I got home, the dear husband built a fire in the woodstove and I made dinner. I made Texas Trail Macaroni which is a yummy pasta dish that you can find on Heather’s site. It is one of my favorite fall/winter dishes. I topped it off with a little crumbled cheese and greek yogurt.


On the side, I made kale chips. I think I am over kale chips for the time being, I have been making them too much lately.


For dessert, I had a small bowl of cocoa pebbles with milk. We watched about 4 episodes of Grey’s Anatomy Season 2 and then I went to bed. I have been so tired, I hope that I will be feeling well again soon.

    Mark is always asking me about neti pots, but I’ve never used one.

    Winter comfort means hot chocolate and grilled cheese!

  4. Coco,

    I tear up the kale, coat it well with olive oil spray, sprinkle it with salt and pepper, garlic powder and onion powder and then bake at 350* for about 10 minutes on a sheet pan. Easy Peasy.
