Boy, was I exhausted this morning. I just could not get out of bed! So, I ended up missing my first 2 meetings. Which was fine – I was not a required attendee. I hate missing meetings though. And then, I thought my next meeting didn’t start until 9:30 – whoops. Started at 9 – so I was 17 (!) minutes late. Darn computer. Takes FOR.EVER to start up!
So, I’m going to admit it… Because I know that you’ve missed me. I haven’t been blogging. And I forgot (FORGOT!) it was What I Ate Wednesday.
So, my pictures are a bit regurgitated from previous weeks — up until the most important meal, anyway… Dinner!
But, we have to start at the beginning:
Breakfast = Decaf coffee (I’m weaning myself off caffeine) with skim milk & cinnamon plus a cup of oatmeal, peanut butter, strawberry jelly, topped with granola
I’m afraid, I can’t find any pics of that. Boo.
Lunch was a sandwich at Whole Foods – avocado, arugula, goat cheese, tomato on an olive ciabatta roll. Mmmm.
For dinner, I was in the mood for some comfort food. So I made… wait for it… Sloppy Joe’s. AND, sweet potato fries!
I made the same recipe last week – and it was a total hit – so I just looked it up again, with my own twists, of course:
