Yesterday I stripped wallpaper. If you've never done it before - it's the bomb! (not.) We're trying to spruce the house up before we put it on the market and decided that the 14 year old wallpaper had to go. Hubby has also gotten really ambitious and decided we need new kitchen cupboards and countertops . (He watches too much HGTV). I keep telling him we're not flipping this house...just selling it. But he says a new kitchen will bring in the cash - so I'm trusting him.
Actually, with my hands busy all day in water and old paste...they stayed occupied and away from the food. I took a break for lunch - cabbage soup & some saltines and had a rice cake somewhere in there because I just needed to crunch on something. So I didn't really eat too much. Which I'm realizing now, was not such a good thing. When I take in too few calories during the day I get ravenous around dinner time and would lick the inside of the refrigerator door if nothing else was available. I know. EEEWW!
One of my neighbors from the lake - who happens to live right around the corner (literally) called and asked if I'd like to walk with her. We do that sometimes. It was really cold outside but I knew I needed to walk so we did about 3 miles. I was going to post on my blog when I got back home but my legs were itching something fierce and I got sidetracked. (I don't know if it was becasue they were so cold and were finally thawing out or what - it was intense!)
While perusing through the fridge to see what fixings we have left for a nice salad for dinner, I spotted a jar of this cinnamon apple stuff. I ever saw it in there before. After some guesswork I realized hubby had gotten a trio of these tasty spreads for Christmas from someone. So I cracked open the lid to see what it looked like. And of course that lead to seeing what it tasted like. And I couldn't just stick my finger in there. It was a spread remember? So I found some saltines and spread a tad on one. Oh - my - gosh! It was incredible! There was 100 calories in 2 TBS. so I ate tablespoons worth on about 6 saltines. Not a terrible binge. Kind of a micro one. But I'm telling you - this is the greatest stuff I've tasted out of a jar in a very long time! I need to keep myself in check over this one.
But it is a great lo-cal snack when you've got a hankering for something really sweet!
