I got a call from my Nana this morning because little Ocho was refusing to eat and acting strange. Ocho is her dog, who used to be my dog before my crazy mommy days. I got Ocho when she was an itty bitty pup and a mere 1 pound. She was my baby before I had D - it is sad to say it but I had so little time for her after he was born. My Nana kept talking about getting a small dog but she never did. I decided that Ocho would have a better life with Nana & Grampy, plus she would be far away from her torturing brother Otto – he was not nice to her.
This was a rare occurrence – she usually never let him get this close.
So I went over to visit Ocho and see if I could make her feel better. I brought along some goodies for her but she refused them – this dog NEVER refuses food or treats. I eventually got her to eat 2 Ritz crackers and that must have made her tummy feel good because after that she ate her food. She just needed a little TLC from her old mommy. I really do miss having her at my house but it would be very selfish of me to make her live the way she was. Nana & Grampy love her and it makes me happy to see how much the 3 of them have bonded.
Before we went to Ocho’s rescue I stopped at the library and got 2 more Once Upon a Time books. I figured I should get 2 seeing as I can buzz through these books quickly.
I snacked on a Luna Bar while we were out. This was the first time trying this flavor. It was very good – pretty intense berry flavor.
When we got back home it was way past lunch so I quickly threw together an egg white wrap with a piece of string cheese, roasted red peppers, basil and Frank’s. I have an over abundance of eggs at the moment – Nana sent me home with a dozen fresh eggs from her chickens.
I also had a salad.
And 1/2 a cup Greek yogurt, 3/4 cup TJ’s High Fiber Twigs, a tsp of agave and a tbsp almond butter.
After lunch is was baking time. I made the bake sale brownies. Now I have to figure out how to pack them so they survive the trip. Anyone have any tips?
I needed a snack even though I had a late lunch. I mixed 3/4 cup Greek yogurt with a tsp agave and I had a Z Bar with a cup of decaf tea.
Dinner was a chicken recipe that was a combo from 2 cookbooks. I made chicken tenders from The Most Decadent Diet Ever and the Honey Mustard Sauce from The Food You Crave. The changes I made (of course I made changes, I always do), was to use oat flour to coat the chicken before cooking and I used 365 brand light mayo in the sauce.
With the chicken I had roasted brussels sprouts (I sprayed them with nonstick spray before popping in the oven) and an apple. Charlie had the chicken too but no brussels – he is not a fan. His veg was a sliced cuke and he also had a baked potato. This was a winner meal and there is plenty of left over chicken.
Dessert was a Banana Muffin and 3/4 cup Chocolate PB Soy Delicious.
My guys are reading a bedtime story - I am going to join them and then enjoy the rest of my evening. I hope you all do the same. Tomorrow is a work day so I’ll be posting breakfast late. See you then. Good night.
