Eating leftovers while the hubby is away--
Monday, January 09, 2012
My husband left early for work today and won't be home until 9ish. This is the kind of day where I fix myself leftovers and easy-to-fix meals. So no pictures today; leftovers are not "sexy."
Breakfast was another round of pancakes--my absolutely favorite all-time breakfast. In the bad old days when I was eating "real" pancakes, I loved them then too, with the butter and syrup oozing off of them. But I actually prefer the healthy versions I fix now, even the dairy-free, wheat-free ones. Those egg whites do wonders! Today I had fresh fruit on the pancakes.
Lunch was more vegetable soup. I made a huge batch of it and I think there were about 25 cups in the soup pot. So that means lots of leftover veggie soup. Easy and good for me to eat. I also had some chicken breast for protein and some homemade peach/apple conserve--kind of like a chunky applesauce/peach sauce.
Dinner was kind of weird: some seafood cioppino (tomato-based seafood stew), some fresh cherries and another batch of Cantonese chopped chicken on a lettuce leaf. These are all in this week's photos. All this for a little under 1300 calories.
I revamped my Sparkpage today. It was time to do it: a new year/ a new page.
I am planning on rowing tomorrow instead of my usual Wednesday. Wednesday is supposed to be rainy and windy. Windy is BAD! It makes waves, big waves, on the water and it is almost impossible to row a light 30 pound shell in choppy water. Last time I tried was totally scary; I felt fear! Tomorrow is supposed to have winds of about 2 mph. at 7 a.m. so that's a good day for rowing. I'm hoping I can get a bike ride done on Wed. but rain may preclude that.
