May 4th, 2014 A Good Sunday
I took some time to prepare my breakfast just right this morning. I enjoyed the process, a much better experience than inhaling a bag of whatever from a drive through. It requires me to slow down and enjoy my food, from preparation to the plate. I love making omelets. I take enormous pride in my omelet making skills. My uncle Jimmy taught me how to make an omelet when I was a pre-teen and I've never lost the touch. I once entertained the idea of offering fresh omelet making services of some kind, somewhere--that's how much I love making them. A well prepared omelet is like a work of art.
I visited a little bit with my oldest daughter Amber this morning before heading to the grocery store for a few things. I tend to gravitate toward a standard list. I'm such a creature of habit. If you browse the food pics on Twitter (@SeanAAnderson) you'll notice I'm pretty much a taco fanatic. Beef tacos, chicken tacos, turkey tacos--I've even tried my own version of fish tacos and a scrambled egg filled breakfast taco. I'm out of Joseph's Pita's for a bit and I couldn't find any today, so I may need to order from www.netrition.com I swear Joseph's Bakery doesn't pay me a dime to promote their 60 calorie pitas!! Although they did send me a nice hand written letter and a complimentary case of pitas a few years ago.
I came home, prepared a turkey burger and an extra large helping of sweet potato fries and watched a documentary on screen writing. I only made it half way through the documentary when I paused and started thinking about yesterday's experience.
This is why I write this blog--I needed to write what I did yesterday for me to make a better connection with it all. Those kinds of deep explorations happen around here occasionally.
I enjoyed a different kind of fish tonight, Swai and some jumbo shrimp. I wasn't too impressed with the Swai. I had never heard of it before. Apparently it's a catfish or a close cousin to the catfish. It was fairly inexpensive, so I thought I might as well give it a shot. I'll explore other methods of preparation and serving because I have the rest of the bag in the freezer.
After another 1.7 mile walk tonight, I headed over to see Noah. Noah will be 10 months old on Tuesday! Seeing him always reminds me of one of the big reasons taking the best care of myself is critically important. I want to have a long and wonderful relationship with him.
It's late and my new mask awaits! I've been sleeping a lot better with this new cpap mask. It's a BIG difference.
