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?
