It sounded like a good idea at the time, but about half way through this bowl of cereal, it started getting soggy and icky, and I was dreaming about a cheezy egg sammie 😦
I had an eye doctor appointment at lunch. I wasn’t sure how long it was going to take, so I had a little snack – nothing better than Tabasco cottage cheese 😀
Turns out I have amazing eyes! Not only am I blind as a bat, but a yearly check up of my eyes is part of my diabetes management. A staggering 21 million people have diabetes, and nearly six million are walking around with it and don’t even know it. A simple dilated eye exam not only can diagnose diabetic retinopathy – the leading cause of blindness in adults, but it can also diagnose high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
Every year I have pictures taken of my eyes, and upon examination, my doctor declared that I had amazing eyes! The blood vessels looked great, and when I told her my A1C level was 6.4 she was thrilled! 😀 When was your last eye exam?!
Okay, I’ll get off my soap box 😀
When I got back from work I put together a stir-fry with the other half of my plum chipotle chicken breast, broccoli, zucchini, yellow pepper and 2 ounces of Thai kitchen wide noodles.
Now I have Dine and Dish to thank for my pork chop topping. However, her recipe was for six pork chops, so I made a version for one.
Spicy Garlic Lime Sauce For Pork

|1/4||teaspoon crushed red pepper|
|1||teaspoon olive oil|
|2||tablespoons cilantro, chopped and 1 tablespoon chopped jalapeno|
Mix everything together and pour over grilled pork chops.
When I tasted this sauce, I did a happy dance. Tony looked at me, and said “did you just do the dancing bear dance?” Does anyone remember the dancing bear from Captain Kangaroo?
I love, love, loved how this sauce turned out. In fact, I told Tony I wished I had brought a spoon to the table so I could get every ounce of it in my mouth 😀
I didn’t do my calorie stats yesterday and no workout because of my eye doctor appointment.
In today’s addition of I want that! As soon as I saw it, I knew it was going on my lunch menu next week. It’s on my lunch menu because Tony wouldn’t touch it with 10-foot pole! Nicole’s tofu parmesan! And her husband ate it!
Have a great day!
