Serendipitous Delight

My Afternoon: Serendipitous Delight

It was a good morning full of errands and business. I made myself another Spinach Garlic Omelet with Dill Havarti too. Might as well use it up while it’s good. And I managed to get the laundry started.

I’ve opened almost all of the windows in the house, and turned on the upstairs ceiling fans, and it feels wonderful in here! So I’m sitting down to a cup of coffee, and some sweet potato chips with all natural fig jam that I picked up at The Pita House. The back of the “Food Should Taste Good” packages always give recommendations for pairing their chips with different items. They recommended pairing the Sweet Potato with things like cinnamon or raspberry jam. Well, I didn’t have raspberry, so I thought I’d try the fig. Wow! If you’ve ever watched Ratatouille and seen him bite into the cheese and strawberry at the same time, it’s like that! Serendipitous delight!

So, I’m settling in to try to review a few more books for y’all. It might take me a while. I found a great deal at T.J. Maxx this week on all kinds of health and wellness books ($2-6 each). So, here we go…

Beautiful Morning, Beautiful Day!

Today is going to be beautiful! They’re calling for 86 degrees! Can’t wait to get off early and go running downtown. I got up and packed my breakfast, snack, and lunch for the day. Then I went outside to water my garden. I didn’t have my camera, but the little potatos I planted are sprouting leaves! It was so exciting (and cute, if a plant can be cute)! I called my husband, “Look, honey, I didn’t kill it!” His response: “Of course you didn’t.” He forgets that until now all I could keep alive was cactii and aloe vera.

For planting potatoes, here’s what I did: I got a free 5 lb. bag of organic potatoes with an Earthfare purchase a while back. Well, I didn’t get a chance to eat them all before they started sprouting on my counter. So, I chopped them up to separate the larger segments of sprouts, and I threw them in the ground. A little water and some sunny days later, I have potato plants coming up!

It’s a blueberry kind of day! For breakfast, I ate about 1 c. of blueberries, a blueberry Chobani yogurt, and 2 Nature’s Path Blueberry Flax Waffles!

It's a Blueberry Kind of Day!

I had a banana for a mid morning snack, and will have this organic butternut squash soup and some Food Should Taste Good Olive tortilla chips for lunch. You can literally taste the different olives: green, black, and kalamata. Interesting, but I love it! If you’ve never tried chips from Food Should Taste Good, they have tons of flavors. Check out their website for a $1 off coupon!

In the spirit of Easter, I think I’ll have eggs – omelet style – for dinner. Have a great day!
