I have a cold.
A nasty, nose running, head achy, lethargic, yucky, nasty cold......
Chris has been suffering with a cold for the last week and luckily I caught it(sarcasm!!)
I have no appetite, yet I am hungry. I have no will to move, yet I move.....I am miserable!
Yesterday I laid on the couch all day and watched CSI reruns on TV.....LAME!
Today it is on to bill paying and picking up some groceries....
I am craving brothy things. Last night I threw together black bean soup and it was really good. I made some tortilla strips for the girls, and left mine plan, totally E2L approved
Black Bean soup
3 cups, black beans, soaked and cooked
2 cups fresh salsa
4 cups vegetable broth, homemade or canned
Fresh corn, shucked
3 tbls. Alicia's sour cream with chives added
black olives for garnish, sliced
avocado for garnish, diced
Cumin, black pepper, chili powder, sea salt to taste
Throw everything into a pot, except soup cream avocado or olives. Cook for about 45 minutes. Top each bowl with some sour cream and olives. Tortilla strips opt.
On a side note:
E2L is killing me...I am crabby and headachy, I feel nasty from detoxing and just generally in a funk...
I am proud of myself for making it 5 days without to many mishaps.. Next week I am hoping to be less crabby and more focused..I have literally been dreaming about pie and potato chips. I swear I almost ate 3 slices of cinnamon toast last night. Luckily a fever hit me, so no toast for me.....Is that weird to say luckily a fever hit me??? I though so too..
Well, I hope everyone's day is pleasant and fever free. I am looking forward to a leisurely weekend and some good food....(that I won't be eating) and spending time with family!!
Hope you have a nice memorial day~
