Day 40 entry....

Sunday, February 09, 2014

I decided to share my entry for day 40 of the book discussion: 100 days of weight loss by Linda Spangle which we are reading with a group of ladies here on Sparkpeople:

Day 40: Having an eating experience

Well all that came to mind for being a food spy was Chef Gordon Ramsay !
but we do not curse in my home.

When we bring something to a themed ladies bible study meal, we do try to make it pretty and use a decent plate. I have a clear plastic rectangular plate that is just pretty even if it is plastic. I'd like to have a few pretty plates and bowls. Maybe someday.

Our goal in these mini parties is not eating, just sampling and enjoying tidbits of food, as none of us want to gain weight! I like to make some decoration for the table. So guess it is a celebration.

Like we did Epiphany last time, Stars, the Magi visited Jesus. So stars where the theme. I sent an idea to one gal of cream cheese cut into a star shape and covered with shredded mozzarella cheese to look like snow.

Really original idea was a snow man, but we modified it!

So that was enjoying the process not just the food.

Okay tonight with my oatmeal. I cleared the table, lit a candle, put a few snow man figures by it and made a smiley face with raisins in my oatmeal! It was fun!

I think due to winter, I maybe should do a tropical heat wave meal! Now if only I had some inflatable palm trees....!

    Oh, I like the idea of a tropical heat wave meal! I need something to pull me out of the cold/snow funk that I'm currently in. I will think about that...even though I've already planned all our dinners for the week.
