First, Vince has decided we need a little dark chocolate. For him, it’s for health benefits. For me, it’s torture. I don’t like chocolate to start with and that 85% dark chocolate is almost unbearable for me. He says we need 1 oz. at least 3 times a week. 1 oz. is a LOT of chocolate for someone who doesn’t like it. I go outside and eat mine, just in case I can’t get it down and have to spit it out. Maybe I’ll learn to like it but I doubt it. We had it today so I’m thinking we can wait til Tuesday to do it again.
Four mornings in a row we’ve had oatmeal. Five weeks and two days and I can have my cholesterol re-checked.
This is actually a small plate! We’re not eating nearly so much these days and this was before I was forced to eat that horrible bitter chocolate. It’s strawberry balsamic chicken and . . more oatmeal. I had forgotten all about Savory Mushroom Thyme Oatmeal.
This meal took a little longer to prepare than what we’ve been having but it was a nice change from a salad and 3 oz. of meat.
