One of these things is kinda the same....' (La La La)
I've also been experimenting with breakfast cookie recipes. I've been seeing them around in stores lately and though...'Huh, cookies for breakfast. Now there's an idea who's time has come'! So I poked around the net a bit and found a few I'd like to try. These are the best so far. I'll put the recipe on my recipe website if you're interested. I usually eat a bowl of oatmeal every morning so this is the perfect pick up and go breakfast for me; no fat, lots of fiber and if you substitute Splenda blend and sugar-free pudding, pretty low sugar as well.
Ben and I got up just as the sun was creeping over the frost covered trees this fine Thanksgiving morning. We went over to the prairie preserve across the street to get a little exercise in. Whipping the tennis ball is good for both of us. I throw it, Ben goes to get it and brings it right back to me.....and then right by me, thus prompting me to run after him to retrieve it so that I can throw it again. We played until we got frosty toes and then we came back home. The Hannibal Lector head gear is his Halti collar. It's kind of like a Gentle Leader. Both are designed to prevent dogs from pulling on the leash. Both fail miserably in Mr. Ben's case. I keep putting it on him in case there is some kind of miracle some day and it's magic powers finally kick in.
I went to the West Side Club with friends for Thanksgiving dinner. It was fabulous! Both the food and the conversation. I haven't felt like eating much lately but all of the comfort foods really appealed to me today and I ate more than I probably should have. The zipper on my pants didn't give way but you know how it is with buffets. Once you try a spoonful of this and a spoonful of that....before you know it you're in way over your head!
After dinner, we trundled off to see my secret boyfriend (not so secret now huh? Well, only from HIM!) Vince Vaughn in 'Four Christmases'. I was a little concerned about the family theme but it had my boy in it so I HAD to go. It was awesome! The only crying I did was when I was laughing so hard I couldn't breath. Vince Vaughn as Joseph in the Nativity is a sight to behold!
Anyway, what could have been an ugly day, turned out pretty terrific with very little effort in the 'psyching up' department on my part. For that I'm thankful. Hope you all had a great Turkey Day too. Now I'm off to watch the news and see how many people set their garages on fire deep frying their turkey this year!
