... and pretty as a picture! It is apple slices rolled up in pastry in a certain way to look rose-like. I dressed it up (as if it needed dress-up!) with a drizzle of rose jam that I made last fall.

I skipped breakfast today. I had to hurry out to an early funeral and I knew there'd be a wake/reception afterwards. I ate a little of everything.

Am thinking mint might be good in a smoothie - will try it sometime.

Today's breakfast was 2 tea biscuits with honey & some strawberries on the side; cup of coffee

True! I grew mint in an outdoor bed when I lived in Houston. And had all the mint I could use and then some! And it grew into the lawn, but I didn't mind! I'm the one who mowed and I really enjoyed the minty smell of mown mint!

I don't have a green thumb but for some reason the mint in the garden is growing really well & have heard that it can hog a garden bed if not contained.

Today's breakfast was a cranberry/pumpkin seed bagel with cream cheese.

You can get MINT to grow?!? Chocolate mint?!?! Awesome! I can get it to START. I can get it to the point when it looks like I have enough to harvest without harming it..... and I SWEAR that it hears me thinking about it and it curls up and dies! This has happened 4 times now. Dead mint has none of the cache (nor flavor) of fresh LIVE mint. emoticon Where is the "roll eyes " icon?

My fresh herbs must come from the grocer's. Bunnies, squirrels, mice, voles, rats, deer, mites, scale, aphids and god-knows-what-else eat everything remotely edible if it is outside, and sometimes even when it is inside (shudder). I'm good at growing running grass. Lots and lots of invasive running grass everywhere.... And I'm moderately successful at growing iris that smells like grape bubble gum. But I can't eat these. I've got 3 acres of mountain-side and what grows effortlessly is skunkbush, running grass, and cactus. And fir trees. Not edible by me nor apparently by anything!

So all I had today for breakfast was tea. Lots of store-bought tea! Clearly, I am not a survivalist!

speaking of tea I planted some chocolate mint in the garden this year and enjoyed a cup of mint tea this afternoon.

This morning's breakfast was baked beans and toast.

DH has always been a person who likes routine. Loves routine! That includes food. He eats the same thing for breakfast every day. For years.
That sort of thing drives me crazy! But I confess, I'm beginning to understand the benefits! While I don't like coffee, I want hot tea in the morning for 3 reasons:
-it's hot and relaxing in the moment and gives me a comforting contemplative start to the day
-it's caffeine! You coffee-drinkers will understand!
-I like the taste!
So, I have some hot tea MOST mornings, if not immediately upon awakening, then immediately after morning exercise. It is a comforting ROUTINE! I'm always prepared for tea!

I had hot tea this morning, with a high fiber blueberry muffin.

The best-laid plans of mice and men.....
I attended the funeral of a family member (read: unanticipated extended family reunion) --
and ate what was provided. No, I wasn't going to add to anyone's stress.....
This morning I woke up to 5 extra pounds. That's the pleasure and terror of low-carbing: the semi-instant weight loss and gain due to water....
So this morning it is a VERY low-carb breakfast now that I am back home: 3 strips bacon and some hot tea with heavy cream.

I can'r wait for the weekend when I'll have stabilized my blood sugar, AND have the time, and can feel free to have something more enticing. I'm already fantasizing about low-carb waffles, sliced strawberries, and a TON of whipped cream!

laughing...
it was a weak moment for me when I ate it -- I haven't eaten cold cereal in.... well, I can't remember the last time--years and years! Not that I don't like it (I do!), it is just that I eat low-carb and I TRY to not mess up... and when I do, it typically is by eating birthday cake or a special holiday dessert.....
But this cereal was Kellog's... from Mexico, a variety that isn't here in the U.S. and it had raisins and coconut -- and even smelled good! I am a SUCKER for something good-smelling!

Anyway, I've been "paying" for it the last couple days -- by just drinking my usual tea and maybe a hard-boiled egg.... (no nuts or fruit...)
