A little food, a little fashion, a little fun, and a whole lot of living!
Learning to live life without a scale telling me whether or not I can be happy! No stepping on a scale for a year!

They taunt me.
They beg to be added, poached, to almost everything I cook it seems.
I think we had eggs with dinner 4 nights last week; one of those nights was at a restaurant.
See, they are following me.
As I lay in bed this morning, I thought about our breakfast options. Eggs, of course, came to mind. But if I have an egg for breakfast, I can't have the Bok choy and egg pizza for dinner. Well, technically I could have it, but knew it would make my logs screaming red.
Pancakes? Oatmeal? Cereal? Every option simply was too sweet. I wanted something savory.
With Lynn's challenge to eat more veggies I wondered how I might incorporate some into my breakfast. Spinach and poached eggs. A natural fit.
Yet I have no english muffins, no bread even.
What's a girl to do?
Why, cheesy grits of course!
I ended up making quick cooking grits, added in a little butter and cheese, topped with sauteed spinach, and topped with my beloved egg.
I nixed the bok choy and egg pizza; instead I am making one with cannellini beans, caramelized onions and sage.
It will be a fruit and veggie fest the rest of the day, along with a delicious m.o.m. scone too!
Lesson learned here? How to have your egg and eat it too.
