I have to apologize in advance because my eating today was dull. No creativity, no inspiration. Today, food was just fuel.


veggie scramble – 2 eggs, red pepper, green pepper, red onion and a slice of bacon


Whoops, I cut off the name of the soup – it was split pea. And the light in sodium variety was b-l-a-n-d. I actually added salt.

This was the best thing I ate all day – a crunchy apple that I bought at a farmer’s market this weekend.

Dinner (here’s where my creativity really dwindles)

Tuna salad in a mini whole wheat pita. To make the tuna: 1 can white albacore, 1 pickle, 2 tbs. pickle juice, spicy mustard, lemon pepper, salt

In the 3rd grade world…

When I read my title (b-b-b-boring), it reminded me of something I do in class on a weekly basis.

Now, you might think that’s cruel and very insensitive. From an outsider’s perspective, I would agree. However – my kiddos LOVE it. First of all, they know I’m being funny. Secondly, they think it’s hilarious that I would throw their papers on the floor, and they rush over to collect them and make the necessary changes. It’s the best “editing motivator” I have found.
