Good Food...Good Trip

Good evening everyone!

Hope you had a good weekend. Thanks for your well-wishes on my long drive. I was feeling pretty anxious about it before going on it because my husband usually does all the driving and I'm afraid I'll fall asleep or something.

It ended up being not so bad once I got on the road. Although, about two hours in I had to sit on my jacket because I was getting tired from sitting for all that time.

I went to the home of a very good friend, who served us steak and sweet potatoes.
This was such a surprise and treat to me. I was so happy to have steak.
And the sweet potatoes were awesome too when topped with olive oil.
It tasted wonderful, Dawn!
We also made up a fruit salad.
Not pictured is a salad that was also eaten.

For breakfast I brought my own grapefruit.
But our friends let me cook up some organic egg whites.
They, then, cooked up steel cut oats.
This is the first time I've ever had them, and I absolutely love them.
I can't believe that they are actually crunchy.
I can not wait to make some myself.
Also pictured is a cup of coffee in a cozy ceramic mug.

Here's a close-up of steel cut oats with Brazilian nuts, sliced almonds, cinnamon and honey.

They also fried up some bacon purchased from a meat place that cuts their own meats.
I had a teeny, tiny bite.
It tasted salty and delicious.
Our friend had a few interesting looking coffee mugs, so I took a few pictures.

I really like this home-grown look.
If any one wants to get me something...
you can't go wrong with unusual mugs like this.
Other than that, I didn't weigh myself this morning.
But when I weighed myself yesterday morning after I ate all that popcorn from the night before, I had gained two pounds.
I feel much thinner today, though
Probably because my eating is on track.
After driving back today, I took a nap, but I am still tired and am looking forward to hitting the sack soon so I will awaken tomorrow feeling refreshed.
Thank you for visiting, and I'll talk to you all tomorrow!
