Me and My Food....

There are so many daily blog hops going on around Blogland. There's something for every day of the week. I usually forget to participate on the correct day but this time I managed to do it.

Robin over at Robin Panzer Art Studio 33 is starting Food for Thought Thursday and since I like food I thought I'd join in. We were supposed to take photos on Wednesday and then post today. So here goes.

My day always starts with a glass of ice water! Yes, even in winter when it's cold I like my ice water. Here it is in my favorite insulated glass, sitting on my work table where I keep it all day long....I just keep refilling it.


A couple of hours later I had some toast made 
from my homemade (bread machine) cracked wheat bread.


I had some of my homemade spiced caramel pear jam on my toast....



along with a cup of "fake" coffee....another of my favorite things. I have this same thing every day unless I have oatmeal.

Since it was Wednesday HB and I did grocery shopping and ran errands all afternoon so I didn't have lunch. I had a banana when we got home and for dinner I had a big salad and stir-fried veggies with a few udon noodles. Later a small dish of rainbow sherbet....Yes, I was bad! And that was my food on Wednesday. Not very exciting but I'm not a gourmet chef!

**************************************

I bought all those new clothes last week and yesterday I wore one of my new tops. Here I am ready for the day....


It looks like I only have one arm the way the sleeve is hanging but I actually have two! One is just behind my back.

I hope next week I remember to take photos of my food again. Be sure to visit Robin's blog and see what everyone is eating!

  3. Stopping by from Robin's blog...your breakfast looks good with all those homemade goodies. I can't drink ice water as the cold hurts my teeth, so I drink it room temp.

    Your new top is very pretty.

    Happy Thursday!

  4. Janet, I don't think I could show anyone my meals nowadays. I'm on low carb and eating all the normally "bad food" so people would think I am crazy.
    Your top is beautiful and the design remind me of some of your backgrounds in your artwork. Love the heartshaped neckline, it suits you so well.

  5. Your new top is purple...no way!!!!My mornings are started with juice, and it changes....right now I am really enjoying white grape with peach. No sugar added. I almost always have a fruit,but I do oat meal also. I do not like a large meal in the morning. I have decaf coffee sometime during the morning with splenda a powdered cream, very hot! I also like hot coco when I am relaxing. Lunch is never very much, I really forget to eat. I eat dinner when Arney is home, but most of the time I do not cook, salad, a sandwich is fine for me, or a bowl of soup.
    I have a bad habit of eating at night, but I am getting better.
    I am glad you came by to see the old house, I know it is a strange post....Happy Fall Sweet Janet, Mary

  9. Very pretty picture, Janet! It's actually kind of interesting to hear how people eat over the course of a day; you eat a lot less than I do!! What is fake coffee anyway? I have to hear more about THAT!

  11. Love your top and earrings... we do like the same style. I'd probably still be wearing wire rim glasses too if it weren't for the kids. Still love them. The salad and veggies sound healthy, and the sherbet which I prefer is better than ice-cream!! Nice to have a peek into a different side of your world. Funny how the artist always shows up...whether it's paint or your attire!!

  12. Love your top, that is such a great style. Purple...Imagine that! HaHa

    Ice water for me in the a.m too. I am still almost 100% caffeine free, it's been over a month now. I still haven't bought that faux coffee you recommended, but will one of these days. That jam and toast looks and sounds so yummy!

    I thought of you this morning when making my oatmeal for the first time this fall. I added chopped walnuts, cranberries and ground flaxseed. It will be my everyday brekkie now that it has finally turned a wee bit cool here.

  13. funny I have to laugh at myself cause I keep forgetting to post on the day that Creative Tuesday has theirs going, um...perhaps one of these days I will "remember?

    You just made me hungry for toast and jam at which I don't even have bread, used up the last slice yesterday for my jam and toast.

    Enjoy your post.

  16. You look lovely in your new top and earrings, Janet! LOVE the colours!

    I've never been a fan of iced water...has to be room temp for me. I'm like you and water in reverse with my hot drinks...I can drink tea or coffee all day long, even on our most hottest and humid days. lol

    I love toast too.

    Fun post, Janet! :)

  28. Wow I love your new top Janet, my favourite colours too and I love your earrings. I love dangly earrings in rich beautiful colours. The design on your top looks like great inspiration for a doodle:)
    Fun post about your food, I can't really drink ice water as my teeth are really sensitive but I make an exception in summer when it is really hot. I just love noodle dishes too.
