Breakfast held me over well this morning – until 11:30 and I was suddenly starving! The husband was due home around noon and I had hoped to eat with him but by 12:15 I had to just dig in.
I had 3 handfuls of cereal while I waited. Grrr!
I had a hard time deciding what to have for lunch because I have to pack my dinner as well. I just started getting things out and came up with this DELECTABLE sandwich: Great Harvest Honey Wheat bread (toasted) with Butter Toffee PB, TJ’s Pumpkin Butter and sliced apple.
I also nuked a tiny little sweet potato (yam?) to have on the side. I found these little ones labeled “jewel yams” at EarthFare. They are the perfect portion for one. Most sweet potatoes are upwards of 300 calories! Drizzled with a little maple and sliced/mashed -
I rounded out the meal with some TJ’s Greek yogurt, ground flax and TJ’s high fiber worms -
‘Twas a delicious lunch.
I finished up eating around 12:45 and came to my computer to find this email in my inbox – guess he’s on the way!

Off from fun bread work
Mixer is getting hungry
Oven sleeps for now
Blondie sugar bomb
Beautiful to see and taste
Talking about you
Zippy city bike
Jambles and jumps over curbs
Can barely feel butt
Blue sky, sleepy eyes
High five is crispy with rye
I feel so alive
He is SO much happier these days with his new jobs. He came home from his 8-hour early morning bakery shift yesterday and I asked him “How was work?” His response was “Great!” To have a job that gives that response is awesome. He’s getting more hours at EarthFare soon and will move to his “home” bakery when it opens this weekend. I’m so happy he’s happy!
MICRO CRAMMING FULL SPEED AHEAD!!!
PS. I had NO IDEA it was National Oatmeal Day – how embarassing!
So, Happy Oatmeal Day to you all! Hope you got in your AM fix
