Oh, I could have slept the day away, but I didn't. The clouds were about, the rain came and yet today I didn't feel as bad as yesterday, but it would have been a good day to lay in bed. I did start out feeling kind of blah. I got up anyway and decided to have the last piece of the banana, chocolate chip baked oatmeal. I warmed the oatmeal and I warmed some peanut butter, stirred in some ground flax and spread it over the top of the oatmeal. I sliced up a golden delicious apple and I had breakfast. It was so much better than the Quaker oatmeal to go. I just can't do that much sweet for breakfast. I am trying to cut back on all sweets, but it's not easy.
For lunch I had a piece of cornbread buttered, some petite diced tomatoes with basil and mashed cranberry beans. Cranberry beans are so ugly when their cooked. There just wasn't much I could do to make them look appealing. I added a little butter, some coriander, onion powder, salt and pepper and mashed them up like potatoes or refried beans. They were pretty good that way, no matter what they looked like.
I also had a snack about an hour or two later. It was a snack mix called PomeCranates 'N Cream, that Mom got me from Walmart, I think. It's made of yogurt covered raisins, honey roasted peanuts, & pomegranate flavored dried cranberries. It was good, but I think it would be better with dry roasted peanuts. I like the sweet/salty flavor combination.
Dinner was late and yet I wasn't that hungry. I guess my heavy lunch and my snack mix stayed with me a while. I decided I wanted something lite to eat, so I just fixed a large salad. I had baby romaine, tomato, onion, broccoli, cucumber, bell pepper, walnuts and a randomly thrown together vinaigrette made of red wine vinegar, olive oil, minced garlic, raw sugar, pepper, salt, onion powder, dill, and Italian seasoning. It was pretty good. I will have to figure out a recipe for it. Homemade dressings can be so much better than store bought.
I guess today was a pretty good day all in all. I'm still here, nothing bad happened and I had some pretty good food, lol, and the moral of the story is......yeah, yeah, yeah, I know, but it just seemed fitting to say with the title being what it is; and now for the question of the day. Mom usually asks for Sunday dinner suggestions. Do you have any suggestions for Sunday dinner? Thanks.
