My son is watching a show about how different companies make tortilla chips, taco shells, etc. They discussed the health benefits of baked vs. fried tortilla chips and that fried tortilla chips tasted better.
Now I'm craving chips and salsa. The really good fried kind that you get at a real Mexican restaurant. And nice thick chunky flavorful salsa. Yummy! I have some tortilla chips in the pantry and some salsa in the fridge. Not quite the authentic stuff, but yummy just the same.
But, I am done eating for the day. I am making myself hungry with this blog, so I'd better end it now and head to bed!

And I'm saying this after DH took me out to dinner tonight. Hmmmm....
Every work day, I pack both my breakfast and my lunch. I generally am not hungry right when I get up, but know that breakfast is important. Therefore, I pack a breakfast to eat at my desk. Most mornings, I have some sort of leftovers. Cereal (no, not even oatmeal!) doesn't stick with me and I get hungry really fast. I really like eggs and bacon but there are two problems with that breakfast. One, not the healthiest choice. Two, no one will make it for me! That's the big issue! LOL!
Lunch is also a leftover, but a different leftover than breakfast. I've had potato soup, beef enchiladas, lasagna and spaghetti so far this week. I packed the last of the spaghetti for lunch or breakfast tomorrow. When I was trying to figure out what to have for the other meal, I started looking through the freezer for my options. Enchiladas or lasagna - been there, done that...today! Chicken and rice dish - okay, but I don't feel like it. Frozen dinner - meh!
Short story long (yes, I know, I can make things long!) (Oh my, I just realized that that could be taken really wrong! ) Anyway...I am bored with all of the food I make. At least, right NOW I'm bored with every food choice I have. Ugh! So, do you think I could stay bored long enough that I won't eat more than my ranges allow? Yeah, didn't think so.
And I bet you are all dying to know what I decided to have for the other meal, huh?
Drum roll please... (pretend those two together are a drum)
I'm going to buy my lunch! Brilliant, yes? I've even decided to get a sandwich rather than a burger. Yay me! LOL!

No, I'm not calling myself a hippo. BUT, do you remember that game? You'd slap the lever on the hippo's butt and their mouth would pop open. Then your hippo would "devour" whatever was in front of them. Even when it was just marbles! Ick!!
Well, I felt like one of those dang hippos today. Wanting to devour everything in front of me...and some things I would actually have to work for! LOL! For most of the day, I fed my inner hippo well. String cheese while getting ready for work (I told you I was hungry, hungry!). Lasagna and broccoli for breakfast. Fiber one bar for snack. Beef enchiladas, broccoli and carrots for lunch. Orange for a snack. Spaghetti (no, no broccoli) for dinner. One piece of bread with some butter and garlic salt. Then I finished off the potatoes and carrots from last night's dinner. Told myself to wait before I ate more. And I did wait.
And about an hour later, I ate 9 Lorna Doone shortbread cookies. (Yes, I counted them. And, yes, I tracked them.) Then, another hour later, I had a string cheese. Now, 45 minutes later I'm still hungry! Or am I hungry again? Either way, I don't like it! Maybe I just need to go to bed and override the hippo with the slug. At least the slug got some rest...I think.
I'm going to go to bed now (after I drink some tea) and see how tomorrow goes. Wish me luck!

during softball practice. At least, not as her coach. Cos I'm not her coach this year! LOL! And trust me, I'm okay with it! Her coach is the varsity softball coach for our local high school. He will be great for her and I am very glad that she is on his team.
I just miss getting to tell her to run faster, try harder, do more!! I still give her a little grief from the sidelines, but not as much as in the past. I don't think she misses it though. Odd, huh?
Oh! Problem solved! I'll just tell her all that stuff on the way to practice, on the way home from practice and in between all of the practices!!! Yay for me! Not so yay for her! It's gonna be a good week!

Hello all! Got up around 9:00 today. Took the kids to breakfast at a place that has an all you can eat buffet. I ordered from the menu. Yay me! Came home and started reading....sorta. Actually cuddled under my blanket and fell asleep. It was nice!
Got up, ate breakfast, gathered kids for my kids to play with, and did my workout! After my workout, DH called and said that he and his folks were ready to meet us for dinner. They were ready a full hour before they normally are. Talk about hustling!
After dinner, I got a new holder for my silverware and picked up some more doggy diapers. Fun, huh? Or not...
That's it. My whole day. Hoping for bed soon.
See y'all on the flip side!
