My weakness isn't sweets, it's salt. Specifically salty/crispy. There's a dearth of salty/crispy on the PB. I'm not jonesing real bad yet, but I'm sure I'll get there. And I'm not ready to give up sweetener in my coffee. I've already eliminated a lot that I enjoyed eating and drinking and I'll be damned if I'm doing that to my coffee, too. Am wicked lucky in the fact that my husband and I are doing this together. I don't know how you do it with him not joining you, but I admire your resolve and your results!
Another PB side effect seems to be that we make more dirty dishes than ever and actually ran out of reusable plastic storage containers so we had to buy some. I guess real food will make you do that. I hate running out of forks though.

Had another night of interrupted sleep. Seems that the ache in my hips has returned and it kept me up for some time. Between that and the stupid cats (which got the boot at some point) I couldn't get comfortable. Grr. I even had 2 naproxen in me.
Anyway, this morning (when husband wakes) we'll probably have something wonderful for breakfast and then get to cooking up some things for the week. He's having a go at making sausage (sans casing) and OO mayo for a chicken salad recipe I found in one of the PB cook books. Then see his dad at the rehab center and then on to my parents to hang, eat and drink. If my mom made my birthday strawberry rhubarb pie, I am eating it, crust be damned. It's the world's most perfect food after all. It should be a great day if the thunderstorms hold off.
Oh and yesterday while we had the bacon in the oven we also roasted the spaghetti squash seeds and even though it's a PITA to separate them out from the pulp, they were worth it. DELICIOUS!! It was all I could do to not eat all of them then and there!
B | almond flour 'pancakes' (a first) | 1/2 c or so ground pork 'sausage' | 5 strawberries
