Dinner was Whore’s Plate. I don’t know if that’s really what it’s called, but my Cuban friend, Adriel, told me this. A while back I made this dish and he said that his grandma called it a “Whore’s Plate” in Spanish. It’s just rice with a fried egg on top – nothing fancy. He says they called it that because it’s really cheap. On the side I had some freshly cooked black beans courtesy of my mom
I also made a bunch of roasted brussels – which I love. I ate them while I was putting everything else together – they didn’t even make it to my plate!
Afternoon snack -
My afternoon snack was going to be a bucket of HFCS – Yoplait yogurt.
I felt so bad about it and embarrassed for the blog since I really try to stay away from HFCS so I had to do this…
But, it turns out I didn’t like the taste of it. I guess it’s been awhile since I’ve had something like this – it tasted too sweet, almost fake. In addition to HFCS it has aspartame. Is this all necessary?
I ended up trashing it for a TJ’s greek yogurt with Kashi Go Lean.
Back to Dessert after dinner- I had some granola and soy chocolate milk.
Then, I broke down and had a Peanut Butter girl scout cookie They were right on the counter and I caved. I have been thinking about cookies and desserts for days now. I think part of it is hormonal, not that it’s a valid excuse, but I actually told someone I would kill them for a chocolate chip cookie – so I have to blame PMS for that!
I am not going to totally give up on my Lenten promise, because I don’t think that is right, but I do think giving up sweets has just made me more obsessed with them. I don’t know what to do…
