Lightening it up

By the morning after Christmas, I had pledged to stop getting full!! However, I had breakfast plans at 10am, and breakfast doesn’t just eat itself. Sarah Whiting picked me up at 9:45, and we headed over to Goochie’s to meet Kerri, Katie, and Katie’s husband John.

John ordered a taco omelet, and I thought it was beautiful:

I ordered a large egg white omelet with spinach and mushrooms and a fruit cup on the side:

It was delicious, and I did not feel overstuffed and ill when I finished it. Imagine that!

Once I got back home, I set to work making two pies for the big group dinner at my dad’s house (just like last year!).

I worked on the pumpkin pie (two cups pumpkin, 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta, 1.5 cups fat free ricotta, 2 eggs, 7 figs boiled and blended, agave and spices to taste):

While Sarah Whiting and mom worked on the apples:

I made a millet crust for both pies (recipe here) and topped them with cranberries:

The pies went into the oven for 45 minutes at 375. To be continued (if I feel like it) …

Do you ever get tired of eating?

    I get REALLY tired of eating over the holidays…Christmas, then New Year’s is also a big deal in my house, I literally get sick of it! I look forward to getting back to the regular routine around this time.
