It sounded like a good idea at the time, but about half way through this bowl of cereal, it started getting soggy and icky, and I was dreaming about a cheezy egg sammie 🙁

1.5 cups Kashi Go Lean Crunch and 3/4 cup milk

I had an eye doctor appointment at lunch.  I wasn’t sure how long it was going to take, so I had a little snack – nothing better than Tabasco cottage cheese 😀

Turns out I have amazing eyes! Not only am I blind as a bat, but a yearly check up of my eyes is part of my diabetes management.   A staggering 21 million people have diabetes, and nearly six million are walking around with it and don’t even know it.   A simple dilated eye exam not only can diagnose diabetic retinopathy – the leading cause of blindness in adults, but it can also diagnose high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

Every year I have pictures taken of my eyes, and upon examination, my doctor declared that I had amazing eyes!  The blood vessels looked great, and when I told her my A1C level was 6.4 she was thrilled! 😀  When was your last eye exam?!

Okay, I’ll get off my soap box 😀

When I got back from work I put together a stir-fry with the other half of my plum chipotle chicken breast, broccoli, zucchini, yellow pepper and 2 ounces of Thai kitchen wide noodles.

The fresh cilantro was a last minute addition, and I really loved the added flavor.

Now I have Dine and Dish to thank for my pork chop topping.   However, her recipe was for six pork chops, so I made a version for one.

Spicy Garlic Lime Sauce For Pork

If you have a sour palate – you will LOVE this sauce!

Ingredients

2 tablespoons lime juice, (juice of one lime)

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon mustard
1 teaspoon honey
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped and 1 tablespoon chopped jalapeno

Directions

Mix everything together and pour over grilled pork chops.

When I tasted this sauce, I did a happy dance.  Tony looked at me, and said “did you just do the dancing bear dance?”  Does anyone remember the dancing bear from Captain Kangaroo?

I love, love, loved how this sauce turned out.  In fact, I told Tony I wished I had brought a spoon to the table so I could get every ounce of it in my mouth 😀

I loved the addition of the jalapenos and the balance of the lime juice to honey.  And if you love cilantro, you will love this!

I didn’t do my calorie stats yesterday and no workout because of my eye doctor appointment.

In today’s addition of I want that! As soon as I saw it, I knew it was going on my lunch menu next week.  It’s on my lunch menu because Tony wouldn’t touch it with 10-foot pole!  Nicole’s tofu parmesan!  And her husband ate it!

Have a great day!
