Wintery White

snowy-sunday-001When we first set out on our walk this snowy Sunday morning, it was coming down fairly hard.  In fact we thought we might go back and get sunglasses and hats to prevent the snow from hitting us in the eyes.  It was a beautiful sight though. The snow falling and still clean on the roads with a backdrop of early morning light.  So fresh. So crisp. 

We brought along Shane’s little frisbee which can be tucked away in my coat pocket until we come across a wide open clearing so we can play.  This happened on about the 13th hole of V.V.G.C. where we played a little while no one else was in sight.

snowy-sunday-002We met 3 runners on the way home. Shane didn’t look so scary to them since he still had the frisbee in his mouth. In fact, the comment was “look how cute he is carrying his little toy”.   

We covered 5+ miles at a reasonable pace. Shane is passed out on the floor and Ted is cleaning up because he dressed too warm for the 29 degrees and got sweaty.  Unless I’m running, it seems impossible for me to sweat.

For breakfast, we cooked up some Ted version Protein Pancakes as he doesn’t like the ones I make for myself.  For his, we used about 2/3 cup buttermilk pancake mix + 1/2 cup Thick Oatmeal (dry) + 1/2 cup hot water + 1/2 cup soy milk + 1 tsp vanilla + 1 egg + 1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder.  We peeled and diced a bosc pear and sauteed the pear pcs. along side of the cooking pancakes. They were cooked in Smart Balance.  Ted ate them too quickly for me to snap a shot. Sorry.

As for me, I love my EggBeaters.  I chopped an onion, about 2 TBS worth + 4 cherry toms. sliced + 2/3 cup broccoli slaw, chopped up.  Rubbed some olive oil around the pan and tossed it all in, added some garlic powder and 2 diced hot cherry pepper slices.  After that had cooked about 3 min., I added my Beaters (2/3 cup).  Topped the Beaters with 1 pc. of Lite Laughing Cow Garlic & Herb cheese.   Folded the omelet.  Added salsa for a finish.  This was served on top of 2 thin slices of pumpernickel bread.  

snowy-sunday-003Both Ted and I had slices of the Kugel from yesterday. We can’t leave it alone!

As for today, I plan on making Molasses Bread. Changing the recipe to make it a yeast bread instead of a cakey type.  I am imparting on an experiment to make an Italian Dessert which is an Almond torte… but not quite.  I’ll fill you in more about this later.  The plan is to make a few of them as I am under the impression that they travel well and will keep.  As I said…. more on this later.

Did you know….. On this day in 1941, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor and….on this day 11 years ago, Ted and I went on our first date:  lunch at Jack Appleseeds (now Delmonico’s Steak House).

Hope your day is filled with fun stuff to do and stay safe!
