Although we had snow and it is pretty cold, the roads were clear. We’ll have the snow tomorrow as well because temps. are’nt rising anytime soon.
Busy morning, then home for lunch which was a spinach salad w/ a radish, 6 cherry tomatoes, 1/3rd of a peeled cuke, 1/3 of a red bell pepper, 1/4 cup brown rice and about 1 cup of left over Quorn Chicken bean saute. I topped it w/ 2 TBS Annies F/F Raspberry Vinaigrette. Took about 2 TBS trail mix on the way out the door.
Afternoon snack was 1/2 of a Jay Robb High Protein “No Junk” Fudge Brownie bar. Chocolatey and chewy. REALLY, really good and highly recommended!
When I was preparing dinner, I heard a whine. I called “Shane“! But he didn’t come so I thought he might be upstairs with Ted. Ted came down … no Shane. We went around the house calling “Shane” “SHANE!” Nothing. Finally, I opened the bathroom door… there he was. He went in and the door shut on him. Oh you guys! No – No – No. We haven’t trained him to use the toilet! But when he came out, Ted did ask if he flushed.
Dinner: A “Namaste” Pizza. Ted opted for 2 cans of crab meat (I would recommend use only one). Ever since I saw the Chicken with Black Beans Pizza at http://runningwithfood.com I’ve had a craving so I made my style tonight. I use the Namaste Pizza crust mix.
I had to add 3/4 cup regular flour because I ran out of the Namaste mix. It came out a bit chewier than I like. I added to the pizza: 1/2 can southwest style corn, crab (marinated in lemon juice), diced tomatoes, marinated artichoke hearts, sauteed onion, spinach, mushrooms, mexican blend cheese & parm. cheese. Sauteed all the toppings except tomatoes and cheese. Blended the crab & veggie saute mix w/ Old bay seasoning. It was good. Ted said he would have liked some sliced olives on it. Personally, I’m not an olive person. He’s not a cooked onion person (kind of like the aversion Kath of www.Katheats.com has regarding onions). BUT… the “cook” likes cooked onions so I say “Chef’s choice”. Just for the record, I don’t like raw onions. I enjoy food but not to keep tasting it for the rest of the day or night!
So that’s a wrap for the day. The agenda tomorrow… a trip to the hair dresser! Hey there Gregg!!!!
