A couple of hours later, I start making breakfast for Madelene. I figured I’d make her a couple of eggs on a bagel and for me, one egg on a piece of toast. I reached up into the cabinet and grabbed the Pam cooking spray, when I realized it wasn’t “Pam”; it was a money saving brand version that Madelene must have picked up. I sprayed in on the pan and it smelled like ass. There are only a select few things I will purchase in money saving brands, but this is not one of them. “I refuse to cook with this ass in a can, Madelene!” I am not exaggerating when I say it smells like “ass” - it totally resembles an overused bathroom at a bad Mexican restaurant.
Aside from that, Madelene and I are trying to cut out all sugar in our diets. We don’t want to replace the sugar intake with some cancer causing substitute either; we just want to wean off as best we can. So, instead of putting two teaspoons of sugar in my coffee, I decided to drink it black with no sugar, like I used to do. Madelene went from two to one. Not bad - she’s making progress. We’re trying to incorporate more fruits and natural sugars instead of the refined stuff. So as she was getting prepared to leave for work, she grabbed a banana and an apple and then placed them on the counter...along with a few extra treats. (This photo was taken - no props, no 'setting up' or anything. It was taken "as is"!)
The day hasn’t even started yet and I really dread walking out of here today.
Have a great weekend everybody!
