An abundance of food with my quilts, and sometimes a quick and easy recipe!

Photos of breakfast, lunch, and dinner on my quilts. Including photos from my container garden. Sometimes, I will post a quick and easy recipe. This is my "just for fun" BLOG ! I see so many things that inspire my quilting!

What's for Lunch Today?

chicken salad, cole slaw, and macaroni salad all mixed together to make one serving
topped with pecans 
1 slice of muenster cheese
1 glass of ice water
Place all the food on your plate. Put everything else back in the refrigerator, so you aren't tempted to have a second serving of anything.
 Well, you can have more water!
Drink at least a 1/4 to 1/2 of the water before starting to eat. I usually drink 1/2 of the water first.
Eat a little bit of everything - slowly.  Enjoy your meal.
At this point make sure all of the water is gone or at least most of it. Save one or two blackberries to finish your meal with a sweet berry.
Eat the berry and finish all the water.
Do the dishes and you are done!
Why do I eat like this?

  • I need to relax during lunch time. Two years ago I would stand at the counter and eat my lunch and rush back to work. Never took a break.
  • I don't want to overeat, so that is why I set the food on the plate (and make it look pretty). Then I put away the other food before I start to eat.
  • I think food should look pretty - like a quilt!
