I think it got down to about 55 degrees last night. In my book there is nothing better than being under the covers with a cool breeze floating across your face. I almost was going kick our dog off of our down comforter that he sleeps on at the foot of our bed!
For breakfast yesterday I used 2 slices of my no-knead bread as the base for my egg sammie. Our deli sliced our Swiss cheese really thin, so this is only 1 ounce of cheese, but it looks and tastes like a lot more!
That kept me full for a suprisingly long time – I ended up doing 45 minutes on the elliptical on level 10 – that was pretty hard!
For lunch I had a bowl of my cream of tomato curry soup – it tasted even better than the day I made it. On the side – a red pepper and cheddar cheese quesadilla I Pam fried so it was nice and crispy. Lunch: 423 calories, 42 carbs, 14.8 protein, 22 fat and 4.1 fiber.
I was grilling chicken and knowing Hannah isn’t a big fan of that, I planned on making a lot of spaetzle. I’ve made it several times since our German exchange student Maxi left. However, I chose a recipe that made a bigger batch and it was an epic fail. The spaetzle never quite separated in the boiling water – and I even let the batter sit for 30 minutes!
So I went to plan B and just cooked up some egg noodles. I spent so much time with the spaetzle, that I didn’t realize I never cooked the broccoli I had planned to go with dinner. I am sure Tony is bummed about that (not!).
Hannah bought me a bbq sauce for Mother’s Day that had gotten hidden in my pantry. I really liked this – I think she got it at T.J. Maxx.
And I had a chicken breast (I only ate half).
But around 9:30, I realized I had put some ground beef in the refrigerator that I had already defrosted for our gyros burgers and had to cook it up, so I made taco meat to use later this week. Well later this week ended up being 10 minutes after I started cooking the meat, and I made us a plate of nachos. Somehow I didn’t end up getting a picture of that! 😀

I want that! Marisa’s Harvest Blend salad. I’ve had Trader Joe’s harvest blend before, but by itself I thought it was just okay. I like how Marisa jazzed it up with feta cheese, vinegar and roasted red peppers! 😀
