My Pop is home! He's weary from his ordeal and he's on a new set of meds..but he's home! He was dozing in his favorite rocking chair with a smile on his face when I left last night. I wanted to snap a picture but I didn't want to disturb him so I left him to enjoy his peaceful moment without a photo...but trust was a sweet smile. His smile can bring me to tears with the simple beauty of it. (apparently it can also bring me to tears this morning when I simply recall it to type about it)

Ok...on to my menu for yesterday.

Breakfast was oatmeal, fiber one, and apple for 4 points. My morning coffee with sugar free creamer made my morning a 5 point total.

Lunch was the other half of the veggie sandwich I got at Subway on Monday. I added a slice of fat free ham and paired it with Pringles Light chips and an apple for a 7 point lunch.

My afternoon snack was a Fiber One Oats & Chocolate bar and some Sweet coconut Chai tea...again. 2 points. (no photo)

Dinner was late because I picked my Pop up at the hospital after work and drove him home to my sister. She had an abcessed tooth pulled and wasn't up to driving. It was a treat for me to spend some time in the car with my Pop...just the two of us! I turned on some hymns and he was singing along with them...what a SWEET moment!

Anyway...dinner was a baked potato topped with Hormel Turkey Chili with no beans. I REALLY like the flavor of this chili a lot. I poured it over the baked potato, and topped it with fat free cheese, fat free sour cream and diced onion. This was a quick and filling dinner at 6.5 points.

My snack while watching Deadliest Catch (I love that show!) was Fage yogurt sweetened with stevia and flavored with vanilla extract, topped with Fiber One cereal.

That's it! Now on to face today and whatever it brings!

I am so happy to hear about your dad. I've been thinking about y'all.

I like Deadliest Catch too. Makes me understand why my crabs are so expensive!

That baked tater looks good. I may just have to make some for lunch. Hope I have some chili hidden in the pantry somewhere.

Chai Tea lover? Have you tried DaVinci's SF Chai Tea concentrate? It's wonderful. I'm glad Pop is home. And to be selfish... I'm loving the food porn again. TY
