Hubby and I have been trying to overhaul our menus lately. We go in stages of eating out a lot, and eating things that really aren't good for us. Then we alternate to only cooking at home, and eating what we know is good for us. During the latter stage, we end up feeling very virtuous about it, but actually feeling BETTER as well. Funny how that works, huh?
Most mornings breakfast is oatmeal. But mornings in a hurry, it's something quicker. For hubby that means a breakfast sandwich at a fast food place. He calls it his Buffett breakfast... he saw in an interview with Warren Buffett that he eats the same thing most mornings, from the $1. menu. HaHa Yesterday I had one of my favorites, which I don't have often. I have a love/hate relationship with bagels. Mostly because I could never stop at just 1/2 but always had the entire thing. Those things are HUGE you know! Well, I don't feel so bad when I can eat just 1/2. Then I treat myself to cream cheese and a bit of Fig Preserves. This is almost the best jam I have ever tasted. The label says 50 calories per Tblsp. I use less on 1/2 bagel.
Did you notice my new bright yellow straw placemat? I picked them up at Target last time, on clearance for .67. Every year they have these, in different colors. I was suprised they had the bright spring-like color on clearance. I can't resist getting a few new ones each year, I wouldn't have gone for the yellow, but have been using this old tablecloth lately, and thought a pop of bright would be nice with it.
I haven't mentioned any Target finds lately because I simply have been behaving myself and not going there as much. On the same trip that I got the placemats, I found a few Nate Berkus stationery items, shown on the same yellow placemat. It looks a little faded in the photo, but is is really bright in person.
Keeping with the yellow theme, here's what I had in the late afternoon, sitting on the front porch in the sun when it was 75. This is only 7 oz., just the right size. A friend told me Dr. Oz said it is healthy to have one "light" beer a day. I don't know if this one is considered light or not, I just like it.
