Sometimes Simpler is Better


This is what I made for dinner tonight.  I find that in the Winter, I go for things that are easy to make.  I don't want to chop, bake, season, or broil.  I want to throw something in the oven and leave it until I hear a ding!  Straight from the ding! to my mouth please.  I always start strong and make hearty, stick to your ribs foods when it starts getting colder, to help build up a little body fat for the freezing months ahead.  But after a month or two of leaving work late, waking up in the dark and getting home in the dark, I am tired.  Ding! straight to my mouth please.

But then it starts getting warm again!  And today was warm.  Well, warmer.  And I begin thinking of food the way I love to eat it, fresh, simple, and light.       


And that's what tonight's meal was: fresh tomato, avocado, sunflower seeds, greens and chicken.  Delicious.  Sometimes I out-do myself and deserve many pats on the back.  


And with salad for dinner, that leaves room for....CAKE!


Ah yes, nothing says you did a good job with your healthy dinner like a slice of chocolate cake.  But no icing for this girl.  Remember the icing fiasco?  Yeah, me too.  All too well.  Instead, a healthier option:


God, it's like porn.  Want some more?


Excuse me while I go stuff my face with another piece.
