A good morning
I could get used to waking up at 8am. But then Frankie might gnaw off my ankles and then what would I do?
I’ve been working on some of my landing pages, specifically, my recipe page. On several occasions, I would try to look up a blog recipe and have to use the search feature. Being the difficult creature that I am, I do not title my posts based on every thing I cook so I would have to click a few posts until I found the one I was looking for. I wisely figured that if I was having this much trouble finding my own recipes, everybody else is, too. I needed a recipe page that I could actually use. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to link to blog posts or link to separate printable pages, so I have both.
As far as my other pages, I’m updating them gradually. I need to do an oatmeal hall of fame on my oatmeal page. That page gets a lot of hits. Apparently, people are curious about oats in their life.
A good breakfast
Speaking of, here is my morning bowl of perfection. Good clean food to start a great day!
- 1/2 cup of oats
- 1 cup of water
- sprinkle of cinnamon
- 1/2 banana sliced thin and whipped in oatmeal the last couple of minutes of cooking.
- Toppings: raw peanut butter, natural granola, flaxseed, bee pollen
A good lunch
I could probably eat soup 200 days of the year. The other 165 days would be taken up by steak, salmon, pizza, roasted vegetables, and omelets.
Super easy tomato soup
- 2 strips of bacon
- 1/4 cup each of celery, onions, garlic
- 1 large can of crushed tomatoes or 3 cups of tomato puree
- 3 cups of chicken or vegetable broth
- 1/3 cup low fat cream cheese
1. Slice bacon. Cook with celery, onions, and garlic.
2. Add tomatoes and broth. Cook one med heat until simmering.
3. Simmer 20-30 minutes. Turn off heat.
4. Add cream cheese and stir until well incorporated.
5. If you want a pulverized soup, use an immersion blender to puree.
6. Serve and top with chopped basil or rosemary, if desired.
Turkey, sharp red.fat cheddar, spinach Panini.
And now, maybe it’s time for a good nap.
