back in the groove
The whole idea of getting "back on track" with a "normal" meal if you've blown it seems to have a good psychological effect. If you don't, then you get onto a roll and DOWN you go. So, today was back into following the plan, having gotten back to it last night. Puffins for breakfast, and milk, for a total of 5 points. The last of the roast as a mini-sandwich, and another bowl of the lovely soup for lunch, with some watermelon for 9 points, the watermelon being enjoyed both by me and M. Cédric. (Ceddie cares nothing about points or calories.) Offered some to Teddy, who licked it, then looked at me as if to say, "so?"
Got me some banty-hen eggs at the market this morning! YAY! These are great for making a one-person recipe for pancakes or something. I don't end up either wasting half (or more) of the batter or having very, very "eggy" pancakes. They're also lovely for a little one-point snack, hard-boiled, or, deviled, make a cute little party munchie. Also got a BIG basket of green tomatoes, to make some green-tomato marmalade, then bought two big bags of lemons to do some lemon-curd, or maybe some lemon marmalade...with mint. That would be lovely. More ripe tomatoes for more soup.
