In an attempt to avoid cold cereal or lack luster eggs, I set out to make an exciting breakfast for myself. It's not as fun cooking for one, but we used the extra crepes for dinner, so it's not a big deal.

They were surprisingly easy to make, and only 150 calories per three crepe serving. So I had my three crepes, half a banana and some sugar free Smucker's syrup on top. I will say, regular maple syrup and a bit of cottage cheese in each crepe would have blown it out of the park, but beggars can't be choosers. So this, along with a cup of coffee from my new (but used, technically) Cuisinart Coffee Grinder/Pot. That alongside my Peppermint Mocha creamer... sweet. When I was buzzing around the kitchen my mom told me I had a "zest for life." That may be true, but I also believe in enjoying my food, and not just eating it. Repetition, although reliable, can be boring. To stay on track, mix things up--literally. There's a lot out there to try.

Enough of my tangent. Lunch was that of a 5-year-old: macaroni and cheese with a hotdog! I usually don't have that kind of thing for lunch but the bread was moldy and pizza looked old so we improvised.

Dinner: ew. I mean, in theory, it would have been good. We used my extra crepes to make a savory version... We filled the crepes with ricotta, garlic, tarragon, and mushrooms. I love mushrooms but this recipe was horrible. We had to use dried mushrooms--which we then had to soak to rehydrate, and it just was disgusting. I couldn't even finish my plate and if you know me, you know I'm a a kid in the clean your plate club. I might even be the last proud member. Anyway, it was not a yummy experience and I probably washed it down with hot chocolate-- my new obsession.

Nothing too exciting on Monday. Same old same old for breakfast, lunch, and CPK Margarita pizza for dinner. (plus, Chevy Chase's Christmas Vacation). That was a much better ending to the nice... oh right, and of course, a steaming mug of the wintry favorite with a bit of whip cream. Easy to please.
