Day 11

Saturday mornings are a bit special for me. Usually, it is the only day of the week I don't have to be "on task" first thing. So I like to be lazy. I usually get out of bed between 6:30 and 7:00 (whereas on weekdays I am up by 5:15). I like to make coffee and sit and drink it for a couple hours while messing around on the computer, sometimes just playing card games. If I get hungry, I try to eat something easy. I make the kids fend for themselves with cereal or toast on Saturday, but the rest of the week they get pretty healthy breakfasts. So today I cooked a sausage patty around 8 and then at 10 I made the most delicious omelet. (The way Matt's dad taught me when we lived there for 9 months.)

Two eggs + ingredients of choosing. Mine: mushrooms, onions, cilantro, pickled pepper rings. Mixed together and cooked like so.


Today, for the first time on this challenge, I encountered an "oh no! I don't have anything legal to eat!" situation. I was taking the kids to the pool right after feeding them lunch. I had depleted all of my greens and leftovers! I grabbed trail mix for the car and stopped by the store to try to find some deli meat I could legally consume on the challenge. That was definitely a challenge in itself! I ended up getting some meat that didn't say "sugar" on the label, but it did have some type of "-ose" ingredient in it. It was the best I could do and I knew I needed some protein before several hours of swimming. It tasted disgusting, by the way. Super salty!

Here is the delicious soup I made for dinner using the leftovers from roast chicken night.

And here is how gorgeous it was outside today, even though it was -20 degrees and the view from my bonus room window.
