Woke up and had the usual coffee. My sister-in-law is Vietnamese and makes these wonderful little spring rolls and she had given me a box of them a few days ago. I cooked them up this morning and had 4 for breakfast/lunch. They are about 1/3 the size of an egg roll found at any Chinese retaraunt and healthier to boot. Filled with minced chicken and vegetables (because I do not eat pork), they pack a flavorful punch. Dipped in Thai chili sauce, they satisfy my craving for spice and crunch.
For dinner tonight, I plan on making baked chicken with rice, mixed vegetables & salad. I rarely eat sweets so no dessert is in the foreseeable future.
So far, I have been able to control my urge to go to the fridge and see what I can munch on. Hopefully I can hold out until I start making dinner. I am noticing this is a “habit” more than a “need”. Especially when I’m not sure what to do with myself. All the housework is done and I don’t tend to watch television. I don’t really feel like working on the scarf or afghan I have in progess either. Kinda wishing I had a friend to hang out with right now.
