Breakfast in Bed

20110918-095623.jpg

Ah its Sunday. Time for restoration. Time for my mind and body rest and restore. I love breakfast in bed. I have to make it but its good . Today I decided to remake a local favorite . In San Francisco Joe’s scrabble is ground beef,spinach tomatoes,and onions scrambled with eggs. It is usually served with sour dough bread. I made mine with gimme lean veggie sausage and egg whites. I served mine with Trader Joe’s whole flour tortilla with oats. MMM I think is was better than the original. Much less grease. Grease upsets my stomach. Now for my coffee and the paper. Ah I love Sunday morning’s in bed.

Got Garlic?

Is this a food blog or a weight loss blog? It’s hard to say. This is one of my problems . I love to eat! I love to travel . How to do that ,work, lose weight and be a mom is challenging. I took my daughter on our annual summer weekend trip to “The City“. This is the nickname for San Francisco. We live in the burbs about an hour away. This is my second time in a week going to The City to eat. On our mother-daughter trip we spend the night and do tourist stuff. We ride the metro to get around. My husband is from the area and doesn’t find this exciting. We do walk a lot which is great. This trip we did Fisherman Wharf and North Beach. I tortured my child by taking her to The Stinking Rose. She thinks it stinks! I love it! I’m a garlic fanatic. It’s still oozing out of my pores 2 days later. The motto is we season our garlic with food. I ordered Zuppa di Pesce. It’s a tomato based seafood stew. It was awesome. I did break my dairy rule and have a cannoli but we walked two miles to and from the restaurant. I think that was a good trade-off. I know I’d walk more if I lived in a major city. Mmm that’s an idea. If your a foodie San Francisco is the best.
