It's Super Bowl Sunday for us. A little bittersweet, as I was reminded there would be no phone call with my father-in-law to discuss the game...
We have decided to honor his memory by gathering with our sons, and making the day as festive as possible. I'm hoping Pete is allowed the "best seat in the stadium" for the big game! There must be football in heaven... don't you agree?
We started the day with scrambled eggs, delicious wheat toast from a local bakery (Great Harvest), coffee, and Little Sizzlers (a family favorite my mother-in-law used to serve). It's a departure from the healthy diet I've been on, but I'm limiting my quantity and adding lots of fruit and veg to the menu today. Later we'll be making tacos, instead of our traditional pizza and wings. I have fresh avocado and am going to make a healthier version of guacamole. I'll dip celery sticks instead of my usual tortilla chips. I'm still having some "fun" food, but still keeping the diet in mind. It has paid off with a loss of 7 lbs. so far, and I'm feeling so much better!
Wishing each of you a joy-filled day!
