Today has not been as good as the rest of the days this past week in terms of nausea. I skipped my medicine at lunch (because I was out and went straight to the bakery) and started to feel it coming on by dinnertime. It’s rather remarkable to think about, really.
Our Great Harvest website was not designed by choice – one of the few franchise rules is that you have to use their website if you want to use Great or Harvest in your URL (to protect the company). I really, really don’t like our website! But the GREAT news is that GH recently switched partnering companies and that means a new site – with a lot more freedom! Not as much as building a site on WordPress would have been, but a big improvement in creativity and usability. So I spent the afternoon working on the new site.
And munching on apples! Also sipping hot tea. I have been so cold today! Matt buys apples for the employees to munch on as a healthy snack. I like that because it means I know I have healthy snacks at the bakery now too! [Nevermind the bite of scuffin that I also consumed..]
I walked back on home just as it was getting dark and pondered “what’s for dinner.” When I go grocery shopping I always make sure to have enough protein, carbs, veggies and garnishes, but I rarely actually plan the meals. I let my cravings of the day put them together for me. Tonight turned into shrimp + millet = shrimp n grits!
I made the millet in the rice cooker – BRILLIANT! It worked beautifully on the quick cooking setting. Like even more perfect than my stove-top versions. For flavor, we stirred in PIMENTO CHEESE! Let it melt in there. So good! If only I had some coconut milk and coconut butter – that’s my next millet meal!
On the side we sautéed some frozen/thawed shrimp along with a green pepper and some of the leftover black bean + corn dip from the Super Bowl (BTW, I always write “souper” now! Too many jokes on that!)
And now, ladies and gentlemen, you know why I have been putting yogurt on everything!! Not that I didn’t do it often before, but a savory meal just doesn’t seem complete without it now.
Planning a small bowl of ice cream later on. Ice cream is one of those things where I always use a tiny bowl and it really helps with portions. Half a cup in a regular cereal bowl is just not right!
Time for us to get lost!
