Snow & Salads

Friday, November 7, 2008

I woke up this morning to a blanket of white snow covering the world outside my window. It was lightly snowing and everything looked so peaceful. It looked like Christmas morning on a Hallmark movie.

The first real snow always puts me in a giddy mood. (I think it puts everyone up here in North Country in a giddy mood, whether they will admit or not.)

Minnesota Snow at Dawn

My breakfast this morning was absolutely delicious. An egg white omelet with mushrooms, tomatoes, turkey bacon and mozzarella cheese. YUM.

Around 10 am I heard a loud growl erupt for my stomach. So I dove into my lunchbag a litte early and ate a small bag of grapes.

My lunch was UNBELIEVABLE. And very pretty, too. I made a Tuna Club Salad w/ lemon pepper tuna, crumbled turkey bacon, tomatoes, cauliflower, celery, cheese and Kashi crackers for crunch. I drizzled on a tiny bit of Kraft Fat Free Honey Dijon Dressing.

I also had another Honeycrisp Apple, but for some reason my apple pictures never turn out!

Well, I'm off to deal with some wedding stress- big families makes it hard to set a date!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE honey crisps! It's snowing here and somehow they aren't out of season yet. (Go figure, Minnesota!)

hey lyss-- i sweeten it! one packet of equal (or sugar, sweet n low, splenda, stevia, etc) should do the trick to get rid of that sour cream taste. believe me, thats what i thought the first time too. but onces its sweetened, it tastes like creamy, sweet, thick yogurt !
