Hello everyone! I have been taking a break from trying new foods lately, so I haven’t had much to write about. But I did finally have my southwestern breakfast. It was originally going to be a southwestern omelet with some hashbrowns like I was supposed to get when we went to the coast. Instead, it evolved into me wanting “dip dip” eggs like my Grandma used to make me.
I think what she made were “over easy” eggs, although I prefer them more “over medium” now. All I know is that the yolks were not fully cooked and I could dip my toast into it. Hence, grandma’s “dip dip eggs.”
I made two eggs over medium and toasted two slices of low-sodium Ezekiel bread.
On the side is my southwestern hash. I cooked up frozen diced potatoes and added bell peppers, green onions, and black beans. After I had taken the pictures I decided to top it with salsa.
So tasty and it kept me full and satisfied for HOURS. Yum!
I also had a fun time when I went to buy some shorts for this summer. I grabbed a pair that looked like they might work, but I was truly amazed that they not only fit, but fit well! And….they were a size 12! I was shocked, surprised, and just about cried. I found my husband and did a little happy dance right there in the store. I’m sure I looked like a complete dork, but I was so happy!
They may have only been a few dollars, but I was pretty jazzed.
Later on, I had a green monster as a snack and then a light dinner since I was pretty full from lunch still. I have found that I don’t want a dessert at night if I have cereal or oatmeal for dinner. I think it’s because I always have a yogurt with it. Although, I tried just having some yogurt for dessert and wasn’t satisfied. I don’t know why, but my body just likes to end the day with a satisfying sweet.
Do you have a sweet tooth? What satisfies it?
