Today is gluten grain day! SO EXCITED!
I decided to stay home from work again today. Since I no longer have a private office, I don't want to be running out the door every 5 minutes to hack my brains out with the coughing. It's COLD today. I put on leggings, socks, sneakers and a 3/4 sleeve sweatshirt today and I've still be curled up under a blanket on the couch most of the day.
I did finish up some laundry as well as do dishes...what's new? When aren't I doing dishes?
I made a couple of sandwich steaks this morning, with 3 organic, cage free eggs (scrambled), and 2 slices of delicious, buttered, sourdough toast. I even took a pretty picture!
For lunch I made gluten free mac n cheese - only I used vanilla coffee creamer because I didn't have milk. I threw it out. There's something very wrong about sweet mac n cheese. So gross. I had 2 more slices of toast and 2 squares of dark coconut chocolate from my Lindt bar from Christmas. It was the last 2 squares. I was a little sad.
Mr. P. got home early in the afternoon and wanted to know what kind of pasta I wanted for dinner LOL. So I googled and found a garlic butter pasta recipe. We might add shrimp and/or scallops. He happily went off to Publix and like 45 minutes later (he went for pasta, bread, green beans and sandwich steaks - and Publix is literally walking distance from the house) he comes back with a baguette to make garlic bread, sandwich steaks, pasta, 2 packages of crackers, and frozen green beans. Apparently he was reading labels.
This morning I was down 17.8 pounds. I'm afraid of tomorrow's check in...carbs have never been good to me and after my first piece of toast this morning, I could have made and eaten the entire loaf.
I had a handful of 3 ingredient Triscuits. I don't remember the last time I had them, but boy were they good!
Here's the Buttery Garlic Pasta recipe from Uncle Jerry's Kitchen. We added shrimp. It was delicious! Not to mention simple and quick. GREAT meal for those nights you forget to take something out of the freezer.
