After a couple of “warmer” days, we are now waiting for snow to arrive. I guess we’re expecting it this afternoon. I wonder how much snow we’ve received so far this winter, I think the last time I checked we were at about 50 inches – our normal amount for a season is 12″. Wow.
I don’t think I did a posting this week at all. This week was such a struggle for me. this is usually the exact time of year that I get sick and I think my body was working over – time to keep healthy! I would get home from work, and I was just exhausted.
Here is a brief recap of some of the food from this week.
On Monday morning (a holiday!) I made French Toast with some left over sour dough bread we had in the house. I love making French toast with sour dough because the sweet and sour combines for the perfect flavor. Here is a picture of one of the pieces of French toast… I cut the sour dough bread in half before putting it in the batter…
I made the bread crumbs by putting a few pieces of whole wheat bread into my food processor. Once they were pulsed into crumbs, I poured them out onto a cookie sheet and seasoned them with ground pepper and touch of sea salt. I baked the crumbs at 350 for about twenty minutes, and then they were nice and crunchy. I love mac and cheese when baked in the oven, with bread crumbs! Yum!
During the week I woke up earlier than normal and enjoyed breakfast at home for a change. A few times I had oatmeal with a glass of milk and added Aria protein powder. This breakfast was amazing, and got me through to lunch without a problem.
I took my lunch to work most days this week.
On Friday, Ben was in charge of bringing breakfast to his colleagues. We went to Dunkin’ Donuts early on Friday morning. I decided to get a coffee and bagel for myself – not a bad breakfast for a Friday! The bagel was a whole wheat multi-grain.
I’m hoping my Immune Defense drinks will keep me healthy!
Hope you are all having a great weekend, too.
