Not a whole lot happening today, so will start the post with today’s extraordinary thing in an ordinary day.  Many thanks to Wendy for today’s lovely new mascot….one of the 101 Dalmatians, and this one seems to like cooking.  So cute!!!!!!  (and so sweet when people give me mascots, thank you, I love them!!)

Chef Dalmatian posed with my breakfast this morning, a bagel thin with 1 tbsp fig butter and a smoothie made with 1 cup almond milk, a banana and some frozen cherries.  (LOVE my new/used blender!!!!  It works beautifully, its so nice to have REAL smoothies, not “chunkies” anymore!!)

I also had chai tea with almond milk.

We’re still working on the chocolate bar (dark chocolate with caramel chips and sea salt) that was purchased yesterday…..I had half of this piece today.  I’m counting it as 3 points.

I had it alongside my morning snack, 1 cup blueberries and a bit of fresh pineapple.

Lunch will come as a huge shock…..I had KALE salad.  I KNOW!!!!!!  Shocking!!!  Not…  (the salad was topped with nutritional yeast, goat cheese, grapes and a hard-boiled egg.  I had an apple too.

During the afternoon, I snacked on some kale chips (more kale??  Yes…) and 2 mini cucumbers.

Dennis is out tonight, so it was dinner for one tonight.  I had big ideas of making myself a swanky dinner, but when I eventually got home, I went “nah” and had a few crunchmaster crackers with some blue menu white bean and garlic dip, then a pita with 1/2 can tuna, mayo, salsa and 1 oz cheese melted together.

Not a particularly creative, inspired or pretty meal, but it WAS tasty!   (and really, that’s all that counts sometimes!!)

It wasn’t a particularly creative, inspired or pretty day overall….but that said, wasn’t awful either.  Just an ordinary day.  All downhill to the weekend from here.
