Wednesday in food

The sins of yesterday's overeating are forgotten!  Hooray for new days.  

Breakfast:  About 1/2 c. Bear Mush (it's just a cream of wheat made out of whole hard wheat), a banana, 2 pieces lite whole wheat toast spread with butter and Marmite, 1c. 2% milk and coffee.

Son wanted to be included in my blog today.  Here he is showing off the rolled up crusts from his peanut butter and honey sandwich that had been cut with a dinosaur sandwich cutter.  He also had peach yogurt with granola, grapes, zucchini and some hummus.

My Lunch:  A whole wheat pita stuffed with Gazpacho yogurt cheese, 1 piece of turkey and spinach, raw veggies dipped into about 2 Tbls. hummus, and grapes.

I made a MESS cooking dinner tonight (Hubby is still in the kitchen cleaning!).  I received some venison steaks from my neighbor.  She had never cooked this cut like steaks before, so we decided that in order to prevent them from drying out, I should pan fry them with oil.  Boy, did I splatter oil ALL OVER the kitchen (and floor!)

Dinner:  about 3 oz. venison steak, sweet potato fries, roasted carrots, 1/2 c. cottage cheese and a spinach salad dressed with Ranch dressing.

It felt so good to be in control again today!  See you all tomorrow!

So good to see a young man eating proper food! He'll be a world class food critic in no time!

Mmmm, venison. Man, I haven't had that in years! I need to cultivate some hunter friends. Heh.

Your son is a doll. You know of course, no one will look at your food when you have such a cutie-pie as a model.

Venison. Cool! GREG

Bear mush without any bear ingredients? (ha ha)

Your husband cleans up for you? That's exceptional. I mess up the kitchen and my amazing wife cleans behind me...sometimes too soon when I was still using whatever it was she washed or put up;)

Glad you had a good day! I had sweet potato fries too! We seem to be eating some of the same things this week. Your son is so cute!

Your son is a cutie! The venison may have been a mess, but I'm sure it was very good.

Joie – Good for you. Another day, a clean slate….you are doing remarkably well noting your food choices.

I would love to eat a venison steak! This weekend I will buy some Marmite and see if that works…spread it thinly on toast.

Oh, the fried sweet potatoes – those are great. A local place serves them and they are da bomb!
