Today was my last day of babysitting! Now I am officially unemployed.


It was a little sad, but mostly exciting. The weather was breezy and in the 70’s – perfect for lying under my tree while the kids played at the park.


I wished a had brought a new book to start today, but I just enjoyed the sunshine.


Then I took the little guy to J.P. Licks for a special ice cream treat. I got half peanut butter and half cookie yogurt. Mmmm! I eat so much tart yogurt, that I forgot how good the sweet stuff is. I enjoyed this SO much this afternoon! And I think my companion really liked his enormous oreo cake batter in a waffle cone. It took him a good 20 minutes to get through it and I was finished in five.


I came home and split a Long Trail with Matt who was already working on this beautiful veggie frittata.


I ate half the pie with a little spinach salad and I am now felling like a balloon. Unfortunately, I’ve noticed some of my stomach symptoms returning lately and I am NOT happy about it. I know some people are really sensitive to red peppers, so maybe it’s just that. I’m hoping to get a second opinion once I have some decent health insurance.

T minus two days of internship…I don’t know what to do with myself!!!

    I’ve been noticing that my stomach does NOT like eggs lately. Maybe that’s it?
    I’m sad because I think I’m developing an egg intolerance, which is terrible since I don’t eat a ton of meat and eggs are a go-to protein.

      Sure! I just sauteed red peppers and mushrooms in EVOO and then poured a mixture of 4 eggs and 1/2 cup milk on top of the veggies in the skillet. I let it cook until it was firm, then added some herbs and white cheddar before putting it under the broiler until the cheese browned.
