  • Yesterday nailed the macros.. I need to synch my kindle so MFP is accurate. Last night for dinner I made bacon jalapeņo poppers. SO GOOD. I stuffed the jalapeņos with .5 oz hard sharp cheddar and 1/2 T of cream cheese, wrap the jalapeņo with a strip of bacon and bake for about an hour. Mmmm mmmm good! This is a diet???

    So, we are all hoping and praying for a snow day tomorrow. We are not expecting a big accumulation (they say at most 6 inches) but its the sleet, ice and freezing rain that accompanies it. *crossing fingers and toes*

    Observations:
    I woke at 4:30a on my own and well rested. I stayed in bed until 5:30am because the principle of the thing.
    Clothes are fitting strange.. beginning to look like a bag woman, I am not complaining


    I get my car back today, again, finally and hopefully in the shop for the last time. They think they know the problem (a thermostat).

          • not everyday.. sometimes I use them instead of coffee in the morning or evening. I keep a small container on my desk at school for when I get the teacher "omg.. I need chocolate or I am going to kill these kids!" and it works gets. A really small piece does great.

            they are bitter but with a chocolate flavor.

            • oh man I gotta get me some. I found a small tin of chocolate nibs at Trader Joes, they are nibs drenched in dark chocolate. Tiny little things but 1 is all I need to satisfy a chocolate urge. But I be it would be cheaper to do the cocoa nib tea than the chocolate tea bags I use.

              • Yeah, the cocoa nibs I buy are just roasted cocoa beans. Nothing is drizzled on them. It is SO GOOD especially with a little HWC.

                        • Ruth- like tea its not sweet so you will need to treat it as such. I was buying Red velvet tea (forgot the brand but its pricey) and I like this so much better!
