Just Another Day

Today started out like any other day, except for I woke up without an alarm and actually hopped out of bed instead of being forced out.  Stranger things have happened.
For lunch I was excited to used my new golden mango, grapefruit half, cucumber, sugar snap peas, and spinach to make a crazy salad:

If you can't tell, the container holds about 3 pounds of food and I filled it to the top and added some honey mustard dressing.  I was a wimp and could only get through half of this ruffage.  I filled the void with almonds and more junk a couple of hours later.
Tonight for dinner, we had his and hers dinners.  Hubby enjoyed the chicken I made last night at 11:00 PM along with sweet potato fries and wedges and wilted spinach.  I think he liked it!

For my dinner, I wasn't feeling the meat and had ketchup and tabasco with a side of butternut squash, spinach and unpictured sugarsnap peas, hummus, and pita chips.

We went for a nice much-needed walk for a little attitude adjustment for me and for some mouthwash for both of us!  I came home and busted out some Wednesday Protein Cookie Ingredients:
My papa gave me this beautiful pomegranate:

I mutilated it:

And my Wednesday crack of dawn breakfast is born!

I think I missed my Sunday cooking edition- in fact I know I did, so I'll be back tomorrow to show you what I'm obsessing over this week!  
Do you have any new food obsessions?  Mine are definitely pomegranates!

A lot of people seem to be loving pomegranates right now. I bought one, but it went soft ... so now I need to buy another and give it a try!

I have only tried pomegranate once, and I wasn't a fan. I should try them again though, I don't think I gave them a good enough chance! My food obsession, as of lately, is spaghetti squash, and soup!

Ive actually never had a pomegrante (hangs head in shame). My current food obsession is veggie chili and sweet potatoes. I could seriously eat both every day and be content. lol :)

My local supermarket started to carry pomegranite and I was going to pick one up but I am intimidated by it...I don't even know where to start and what to do with it ha

they have a huge display and brochures that I always look at when I am there...but I never take the baby home ha

I bought a pomegranate once and had no clue what to do with it! Guess I should try again because your oatmeal pancake looks great! My food obsessions lately are hummus and roasted veggies!
