So. I have decided that bloggers are more dramatic than the average bear. First I’ll share my own story. Saturday, after lunch with the ladies, I went to Target. Now, let me preface this by saying, I haven’t felt all that great for a few days. I think I’m not sleeping well and it’s flowing over to the day. (Let’s blame this on Ian going into the Coast Guard, can we??) Of course. Anyway, I had a headache and my head felt foggy. Well, I went into Target and wasn’t in there very long because I just wasn’t feeling great so I grabbed a couple of things we needed and checked out. My plan was to stop at the grocery store to get my meat for the week. Well, when I came out of Target, I couldn’t find my car. I remember specifically I parked right beside a cart corral because I had to SQUEEZE out of my car. Well, my car wasn’t in the spot. Nor was it next to any other cart corral. My car had been stolen! My knees were weak and I was certain I was going to pass out. I had my phone out dialing 911. I looked up and realized. There were 2 entrances. And I had come out the wrong one. Yep. Found my car! Anyway, the whole blogger dramatics thing was confirmed this week when I read one of my favorite blogs: Monica had a scary experience with her knee. Go read it. You won’t be sorry. Made me feel better about losing my car!
Well, lets move on to food, shall we? Now remember, I have had a foggy headed week so I’ve been forgetting to take pictures like I would like to.
This. Right here. Is my favorite meal ever and it has made appearances here before. Chicken and bean bake. I originally found this on Racheal’s blog. I love it because it is easy peasy and it can be tweaked however you need it to work. Whatever I have green in the freezer I use, this time was brussels sprouts. I tossed some olive oil, dried basil, dried parsley, garlic powder and onion powder, tossed some chicken legs that had been salt and peppered on top and baked. I wasn’t feeling well so 3 minutes and a gourmet dinner is in the oven. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Now, above, I had some left over alfredo in the fridge that I added some avocado to. Delicious! My absolute favorite snack that I am ADDICTED to is these granola bars. Addicted. Can’t stop. That empty bowl represents ginger cats. That is how good they are. They get in my mouth so fast there is no time for picture taking! Last but not least is this pie. I have watched these in gas stations since we moved here. I finally bit the bullet and bought one. Curiosity=satisfied. This was the most disgusting thing I’ve ever eaten in my life. Gross!
Now, eats that have not been photographed, a toasted bagel with whipped cream cheese topped with a sliced boiled egg, OMGYUM! Banana dogs, a deli turkey and cheese roll, and Click protein drink have all been great fillers that seem to hold me for a while.
What do you eat that extends your satiety?
