How could it not be when I’m so blessed with a family like this…
I’m going to cut this short as I’m exhausted but I wanted to check in since I didn’t post in a couple of days. I planned to but with company and the holiday time just got away from me. And frankly, I barely spent a minute on the computer. It was actually a nice break.
Dinner went exactly as I planned it. My favorite dish was…
Like I said, it’s a salad based on this idea I posted on GreenLiteBites. The Dressing came out great and everyone seemed to like it!
I also loved, loved, LOVED the potatoes.
I made them exactly like this but added some sweet potatoe as well. They were actually TOO good. I had to pawn the leftovers off on my Father-in-Law. I can’t be trusted with that many roasted potatoes in the house and a husband who doesn’t eat them.
Overall it was a good day on the food front. When you serve lots of healthy things it’s kind of easy. I only fell apart AFTER everyone left. Honestly, I had a tinge of "old Roni" mentality creep in after I ate a peanut butter egg.
"I might as well have ______ I already ate _______."
"Well, there’s only X number left I should just finish them so I don’t have any in the house tomorrow."
I don’t think this mentality will ever fully go away.
So, I did eat a wee bit more candy then I should have. You’ll have this. As we talked about yesterday…
It’s not what we do occasionally that makes the difference. It’s what we do consistently.
Tomorrow’s a new day and it’s back to doing what I do consistently. :)
In other news…
- Tomorrow I have a meeting for FitBloggin’ I’m REALLY starting to freak out now. It’s right around the corner.
- Little Bean is in his crib for the first time, I talked about it on Babble tonight.
- And I was so excited about the warm weather I found myself taking photos of lawnmowers.
I’m weird. I know. ;)
Ok, time for bed.
