Remember when I mentioned the other day that we can show little snippets of our life but not really let people see the truth of their whole life? I forgot to take my usual food shots tonight, and it occurred to me that it is just amusing, rather than embarrassing, the way I eat. I thought I would share a little bit of ‘truth’ with you all.
This is how I eat many of my meals. Sometimes I don’t even use the tray–I just balance it on my knee. Just before I ate, I was working on a quilt project, and rather than clear it away, I just moved the threads to one side. I had also just been talking on the phone evidently. I couldn’t find my salt shaker, so I just brought the big container over. Notice Sophie taking advantage of my temporary loss of vigilance while I took the picture. She knows she’s not supposed to be up there when I am eating.
The food: That is some leftover roasted cauliflower that I warmed up in the toaster oven. Just as good the second time around. I made Pubsgal’s Especial Soup–DELISH! Pretty spicy on the debby scale. I think I”ll add some fresh tomatoes into the rest of it–that should decrease the heat a bit. Plus I like Pubsgal’s idea of adding veggies and even potatoes. I had one ear of corn, so I added that. Otherwise, I followed the directions for once! (edited to add: Oops. I did substitute 3/4 cup of yogurt for the cream cheese/sour cream.) That muffin there is from a new batch of the oat bran muffins. This time I used the original recipes’ add-ins of chopped apples and raisins. So yummy, and fall-like. In spite of our FIVE DAYS OF OVER-100 DEGREE WEATHER. Go away, heat wave.
I’m five for five on the morning exercise before coffee challenge. Noah and I were out quite early this morning. Which is working out quite well with the heat. We walk in the evening when it is almost dark, because its finally starting to cool down then. No other exercise today, unless you count dusting and vacuuming and doing four loads of laundry, and cleaning my sewing machine, air conditioner filter, and keyboard. I don’t know what got into me!
Here’s a few gratuitous doggie shots:
