Chubby Bee Meets Chubby Bear
One of granddaughter Izzy's favorite Disney characters is Special Agent OSO. The only present she asked for from our trip was an OSO teddy bear. She got her bear, but I also made sure that we got a photo with OSO and Mary got her an autograph. I'm hoping that the next time I meet OSO, I'm not so chubby.
Yesterday went pretty well. The oatmeal kept me feeling full until lunch time. My tuna pasta salad was delicious and filling. We ended up with waxed beans for dinner because there was no cabbage for cole slaw. The grits were a pleasant and unexpected surprise. We followed the directions on the bag for 6 servings. But we ended up with a huge pot full of grits. We stirred in a can of evaporated skim milk, and before we added the cheese, Pat suggested that we take a bowlful out. She felt they would be good for breakfast with maple syrup. Being northerners, we don't eat many grits, but I was willing to give it a try. While the grits were still hot, I threw in a handful of dried cranberries. And we decided to try it right then and there. I added a little of my sugar-free syrup and it was delicious. We let the rest of the bowl cool off a little before we put them in the refrigerator. So, as soon as I finish this blog, I'm heading to the kitchen for some of my grits. Just the thought of them makes me smile.
Daughter Pam made wedding soup last night and has offered to bring me a bowl for my lunch today. It's chilly and rainy here today, so soup will be very welcome. I cooked a turkey over the weekend, and since it's just Rod and I for dinner tonight, we are going to finish up the gravy and turkey with hot turkey sandwiches. A perfect dinner for a fall evening. Have a healthy day.
