Breakfast: farm carrot sticks, mandarin orange, salted almonds mixed with Craisins.
Snacks: 4 cups of coffee with half and half (2 regular, 2 decaf), glass of fresh carrot-orange juice (I started to feel faint behind the counter at work), several spoonfuls of white chocolate malt milkshake (for the same reason), which was just about the sweetest thing I've ever tasted in my life. I mean that literally. It's not particularly a positive thing.
Lunch: After work, from the restaurant. Grilled swiss cheese with ham and tomato on rye. Side of steamed spinach with sesame oil. They didn't even bother to heat up the latter. Doesn't anybody like me anymore?
Restaurant follies: there was already shouting between our two primary waitresses this morning by 9:30 am. (I was working the counter today, not waitressing.) That was extremely early; usually they don't start falling apart until later, around 1:30, when they get hungry. It seemed like a bad sign. But everybody pulled it together.
Shopping (at coop): brown rice crisp cereal, 3 rolls Seventh Generation toilet paper, a salami, coffee beans, bananas, $26. (At bakery): loaf of cornmeal bread, small loaf of sour cream poundcake, $13.
More snacks: My stepson was stopping at our house prior to attending my daughter's high school play tonight, and none of us would have time for dinner beforehand. So I laid out chunks of cornmeal bread, salami, parmesan cheese, and sour cream pound cake, and we snacked on that for a while.
Dinner (after the play, at Tastee Diner): Bacon and eggs, home fries with onions, and wheat toast with butter and jam. Another cup of coffee, which was a mistake because it made me sleep badly.
Breakfast (6:30 am, before work): one fried egg, piece of cornmeal toast with natural ground peanut butter, carrot sticks.
Lunch (at about 4:00, after a very long day and grueling Sunday at work): salami, parmesan cheese, carrot sticks, piece of corn toast with unnatural peanut butter and strawberry jam.
Snacks at work: None. Nothing whatsoever except water and breath mints.
Other snacks: 4 cups of coffee with half and half and/or heavy cream, 2 regular, 2 decaf.
Dinner: Dominoes pizza with mushrooms and spinach, eaten while watching a 3-weeks-old episode of Downton Abbey with my husband and daughter. I was too exhausted to cook. My daughter ordered an individual pizza for herself which she called a "none pizza with left beef." Apparently this is some sort of internet joke. It was a plain crust with beef scattered on one half. (Although, as she pointed out, how can you tell which is the left half and which is the right half? It is round.) We both took photos of her none pizza with left beef and she texted it to her friends. I posted it on my blog. She also ate it.
