The Hanker Man

Sunday, May 12, 2013

Sooooo. I know this is my second blog in a day. But hey. I'm here for myself....if you all want to read along that is all the better! :)

My DH decided that mom shouldn't have to cook on Mom's Day and I did NOT argue with him on that point.
Well, let me back up even farther. Church. Food fellowship. I forgot to bring my navel orange to eat but fortunately there was some (canned) fruit salad. I don't know whether it was sweetened or not. But I had some. Then when I got home I had a big salad --in the nifty new salad bowls I bought from Walmart yesterday. They are green oversized bowls made of plastic and they make me happy. 'kay?

Then for dinner we had Chinese. I'd ordered brown rice and steamed veggies with brown sauce on the side. Well, wouldn't you know it, they forgot the brown sauce all together.... Maybe that was a good thing. Anyway, I put a little low sodium soy sauce on it and it was good enough.

Then---I got to hankering. You know the Hanker man? He sits in your brain and says, "For tonight's story there is ice cream....cookies.....you name it...You WANT it."
Well, first I took a few bites of the watermelon my DH bought and then peeled a very ripe mango and somehow the juice dripping off of my chin felt decadent enough to silence the Hanker man. Thank goodness because I was INCHES away from raiding my daughter's cookies they just bought.

So all in all a successful day. If I can get through the night without eating.....well, I don't know what I would eat because there isn't a crumb of unhealthy food in the entire house except for my daughter's cookies which are safely out of reach in her bedroom. So probably I will eat fruit. My nightly kitchen raid. Lately fruit has been the order of the evening. And that is quite okay.

So Cyn, ya done good!
