gotta love the $1 ice cream cone

BREAKFAST:
example
I discovered four homemade waffles in my freezer the other day! I had two of them for breakfast this morning, with peanut butter, sliced bananas, and maple syrup. Glass of orange juice on the side. Coffee and vitamin, too.

LUNCH:
example
Leftover lasagna (this was actually just one piece, but I chopped it up so it would heat more evenly in the micro,) a side salad, and another cup of coffee. Strangely, I only drank half that second cup!

TREAT:
example
Oliver was kind enough to knock the containers of Christmas cookies on the floor, so I HAD to eat the broken one, right?? :) And the molasses cookies are STILL SO GOOD!

MID-AFTERNOON SNACK:
$1 ice cream cone (eh, fat-free frozen yogurt??) at IKEA. YUM. I don't care if it's January and it's -2 degrees Farenheight outside! Eat the $1 ice cream cone every chance you get!!!! (Fortunately, I'm not at IKEA all that often, so the $1 ice cream cone really is a treat.)

DINNER:
Ann treated me to crunchy tacos at Chipotle, since she had a couple of free burrito coupons. I had them fill my tacos with cilantro-lime rice, black beans, peppers & onions, mild pico de gallo, medium corn salsa, and guacamole. MMMMMMMMM . . . !!

EXERCISE:
Ann and I walked around Lake of the Isles this afternoon, which took us about 75 minutes. We estimate the lake path is slightly over two miles.

~~~~~~~~~~

I love IKEA. I got two new rugs for my entryway, a tall jar to keep dry noodles in, and two bookends, for only $10.10! Woo! Oliver had to try out both of the rugs as soon as I got home, just to make sure they were cat-approved, I guess.

Sounds like a good day! I actually have a map of all of the lakes in the Chain of Lakes in Minneapolis, and the distance around them...Lake of the Isles is 2.60 miles around (assuming you walked on the paths around it). I love walking around the lakes :o)

And yes, I agree--you did have to eat the broken cookie. You wouldn't want the two parts to go stale or anything like that...

Love the breakfast idea - I may have to steal that one (but, I must make waffles first).

Good for you for walking outside. I'm not sure I could do that. I really cannot be outside for too long - maybe I'm just being a baby, but it's COLD!
