Dessert for Dinner or …

This picture was taken this morning as Jessie and I went for a nice walk before it got too hot and humid. It is unusual the Jessie lets me get a picture of her so when I saw that she had turned towards me as I took the picture, I was thrilled. She is such a pretty girl, but, like her mama, camera shy.

Last night I was craving something sweet. I thought about skipping dinner and going straight for dessert, but I didn’t want to make a cake or cupcakes or cookies since Bob is coming home tomorrow and I would like to be supportive in this whole loose weight thing. I don’t get it, but I’ll try to help. I thought about going out for ice cream, but was still feeling sick, so that was out. And then I came up with an idea that would be dinner, but still fix my sweet craving. Crepes.

I made a regular crepe and filled them with bananas and then added more bananas and just a little maple syrup to the top. This kept them light and just sweet enough that my dessert craving was satisfied. The bananas let me pretend that this was a healthy dinner – it includes fruit – when really, it was just pure indulgence on my part.

Today was another salad. This one was composed of escarole, tomato, carrot, apple, cucumber, dried cranberries and English cheddar cheese. The dressing was olive oil, white balsamic vinegar and garlic. It was not only pretty, it was tasty and filling too.

The escarole is a bit bitter, but the sweetness of the apple and cranberries offset it, and the creamy cheddar cut some of the bitter nicely. It may not be a grain filled meal, but it still satisfied and I can claim it is healthy eating.

Hope everyone is having a great Labor Day weekend! I get to figure out a less vegetarian meal for tomorrow as Bob comes home. The pets and I are ready for him to be home, and no just because I want him to remove the lizards the cats bring home.
