We have reached another Friday. Another week full of good things, easier to notice with the passing of each week as I train myself to look for them. Thanks Susanne for the encouragement to do just that.
Today I wanted to share five of my favorite foods from this past week.
1. My New Morning Drink: I allow myself a cup of coffee full of all of the goodies in the morning during my personal quiet time. I have developed a new mixture that makes it only 100 calories and tastes oh so yummy!
1 Cup of Fresh Brewed Coffee
1/2 packet no sugar added hot chocolate: 25 calories
2 TBSP sugar free liquid vanilla creamer: 30 calories
2 TBSP light whipped cream: 20 calories
1/2 TBSP caramel ice cream topping: 30 calories (actually 27.5) (my most recent discovery. YUM!)
TOTAL: 105 calories Good morning world!
2. Fresh Garden Lettuce: You may have read about the deer fence that my husband built for me so that we can eat the fresh veggies instead of feeding all of the local deer. I have never attempted to grow lettuce before, but this year I did. My first harvest allowed for a salad with all of the lettuce completely from my garden. YUM!
My budget doesn't often allow for these next items, but a few times each year the prices get low enough that I am able to splurge a bit. And this week was one of them...
4. Blueberries: I usually have a bag of frozen berries in the freezer, but they can't compare to this.
5. Dark Sweet Cherries: As I was serving these to my children, I explained to them that these are a very special treat. I don't remember having these growing up in the Midwest. I was reminding them that this was one of the pleasures of living the in Pacific NW.
