A little sour cream changes everything

The last time I was intent on losing weight my big  'cheat' was usually bread and cheese, or to be more accurate, processed grains and dairy. Any kind. But it worked, it provided air in the room of deprivation, and kept me from lashing out. I bring this up because today;s lunch was awesome. I had a small bowl of my grain/veggie mixture and added ground pepper and a spoonful of sour cream. Magic. Just like that. It was so delicious I ate the second half that I had kept in reserves afraid it might not be wonderful. I needn't have worried, roasted butternut squash is always the life of the party.

This is the time of year at work where I have some breathing space to make sure all processing is on track, update files, and make ready for tax season. I am so thankful to have this job, and for J who keeps me sane.

On the way home I stopped at TJ's for more sour cream, wanting to repeat the experience tomorrow, and while there picked up some items for R which ended up with me having a burger for dinner. Black bean and quinoa pattie, on a toasted honey wheat bun, with avocado, pickle, tomato, lettuce, mustard, mayo and ketchup. YUM.

Tired and off to bed early; okay, so business as usual.

Breakfast: Decaf, sausage muffin
Lunch:  home made grains, roasted veggies, and sr cream
Dinner:  Quinoa burger with all the fixins
Dessert: Honey Greek Yogurt, diced fresh strawberries, chopped pecans
