Brunch

This was nice.  A visit from my siblings.  They brought a little red oak tree with them.102_2124

I skipped dinner last night, and made a nice brunch (breakfast and lunch) for all of us this morning.

Fruit salad: 1 banana, 1 mango, 1 orange, 1 apple, 1 kiwi and a little fresh lemon juice

Spinach salad: fresh spinach, 1 avocado, 1 tomato, 10 green olives (low sodium and washed extensively), fresh mushrooms, garlic, reduced fat parmesan cheese, 8 unsalted crackers crumbled over it.  Dressing 1/2 oil and vinegar, 1/2 nonfat Italian.

Potato gratin: 4 russet potatoes sliced thinly, 2 cups of 2% milk, 1 cup of low fat Mexican cheese, sliced mushrooms, sliced green onion bottoms, sliced onion, 1/2 cup of cilantro.  Cooked open for 1 hour at 350.

Salmon with toast: 4 oz cooked at 50% for 2 min. covered with lemon juice, chopped green onion tops, reduced fat mayonnaise, and 2 slices of toast cut up into a total of 8 pieces.

Eggs: Egg white cooked for 3 min. in microwave, then 4 little “yolks” made with Mexican cheese and melted for 30 sec on top of the cooked whites.

Juice: Sugarfree (antioxidant A,C and E supplemented) Tropical juice and unsweetened Grape juice.

Coffee and Tea: Decaf and Regular.

It was brunch for 5, as there was almost enough for a 5th plate.

The help.

We discussed having a contest to see who could get the lawn mower started the fastest, everyone getting a 5 min. turn.  I had changed the plug yesterday and it still wasn’t starting.  Today, however, after brunch, it started on almost the first pull, and we took turns mowing a bit.
