Today was yummmmy. So yummy. Let me start off by saying that I claim to hate cheese (just like I claim to hate bananas) – but in reality I eat both foods fairly regularly. I don’t love either on their own, but mixed among delicious things…I’ll gladly indulge.

This was lettuce with tuna salad: canned salmon, shredded carrot, celery, spicy mustard, mayo, chickpeas and topped with cheese


Then I ate half a sweet potato with yummy hummy.

Snack was a delicious sample sent to me by Liz at Bumble Bar.
This was the chai flavor, and I liked it. I think the original flavor is still my fave – but I would definitely eat this again. Liz, thank you so much for the samples!


I ate this, along with an un-pictured perfect apple in between meetings. Despite not having the kids in class today, we were busy. From learning how to use an AED, to reviewing health insurance, to making class lists for next year…I wear many hats.

For dinner, I made a pita pizza. First, I roasted some veggies and made some red sauce out of canned tomatoes, tomato paste and some spices (parsley, basil, oregano).

Then I pre-toasted the pita, and layered it all up and topped it with the cheese that I don’t like.

Then popped it back under the broiler. Cut into squares, and yummmmmm.

For dessert, the return of the fruit cereal!!

There are no words. This is the tastiest thing around: 1 apple, 1 banana, 1 cup frozen blueberries, 1 tbs. ground flax seed, flaked coconut and milk. Perfection.

Thanks for all your thoughts about Columbine. Isn’t it interesting how people always remember details about tragic moments like that? I know many people that were at Columbine during that time, and this day is always hard for them to re-live, but I’m a firm believer that good can always be found. One such glimmer of hope is an organization that my father-in-law (and cousin, sister-in-law, and brother-in-law) work for is called Rachel’s Challenge. It’s a non-profit started by the father of the first girl – Rachel Scott – killed at Columbine. It is absolutely astounding to see the good that she has brought into this world. Rachel’s acts of kindness and compassion coupled with the contents of her six diaries have become the foundation for one of the most life-changing school programs in America.

What do you think? Can good always be found?
