This morning I wanted something a little different than my usual oats, scrambled eggs etc. So I quickly crisped up some turkey bacon along with a couple of eggs.
Topped with sliced tomatoes. Not bad. Next time I will toast it a bit longer though.
Served with juicy orange slices. Delish! The whole meal was 6 points – turkey bacon (2), egg (2), toast (1) and orange (1)
Overall my day was okay. It was hot and my AC is on the fritz. :( However, my house is much cooler so it’s all good. I’m catching up on a few episodes of Days and then have big plans to mow the lawn and start a new book. I just finished American Wife and it was such a great read, really enjoyed it a lot. FYI. ;)
Up next on the list is a book recommended to me by a reader – The Bite of the Mango by Mariatu Kamara.
But when 12-year-old Mariatu set out for a neighboring village, she never arrived. Heavily armed rebel soldiers, many no older than children themselves, attacked and tortured Mariatu. During this brutal act of senseless violence they cut off both her hands.
Stumbling through the countryside, Mariatu miraculously survived. The sweet taste of a mango, her first food after the attack, reaffirmed her desire to live, but the challenge of clutching the fruit in her bloodied arms reinforced the grim new reality that stood before her. With no parents or living adult to support her and living in a refugee camp, she turned to begging in the streets of Freetown.
In this gripping and heartbreaking true story, Mariatu shares with readers the details of the brutal attack, its aftermath and her eventual arrival in Toronto. There she began to pull together the pieces of her broken life with courage, astonishing resilience and hope.
I also borrowed The Eat Clean Diet Cookbook. Looking forward to saving some healthy and delicious recipes for future use.
Off to get supper ready – bean burgers and fries are on the menu. Hope you all have a wonderful night!
