Love my KC Royals!

September 25, 2015

Last night, the KC Royals won the American League Central Division, and it’s kind of a big deal. Last October was crazy fun in Kansas City with baseball fever everywhere, and here we go again! I’m looking forward to an October full of Royals baseball and Chiefs football and lots of energy in Kansas City!

Yesterday was a busy and full day. Lot’s done at home before heading out to work at the Food Truck. We had a fun day with the food truck at the American Royal Youth Rodeo! I’ve sucked a good friend of mine into the Food Truck fun. That’s Renee on the left. We met almost 30 years ago.I think she enjoys this just as much as I do!



We made a new sandwich yesterday that we haven’t had on the truck before. I was in charge of actually making them, and after handing several out the window, we all decided I should make one of them for us to taste!



It was your basic BLT, but these Heirloom Tomatoes were crazy juicy, and the bacon wan nice and thick and it looked so yummy, and it was on a buttered sourdough bread toasted on the panini grill you guys!! I did pick out the ends of the bread, so it was a small sandwich, perfect for us to share as a sample.

I said I wouldn’t eat any Food Truck food yesterday, but I’d say…..not too bad considering all the temptations. I did take my fruit and yogurt and I did eat it too.

I really wanted to grocery shop on the way home from working, and I really wanted to go to Hot Yoga last night. When I got home from the grocery store, I realized it was the only day I could mow for the next few days, and it would be dark soon, so I mowed instead of going to Yoga.

I drank lots of water yesterday, and now I’m just happy it’s Friday.

Here are yesterday’s eats……


Breakfast – 5 PPV

Egg Whites Scrambled, 1 Laughing Cow Cheese Wedge stirred in, 1/4 C Turkey Sausage added, folded into a Whole Wheat Carb Balance Tortilla, and then placed in a hot skillet with a little cooing spray. Topped with 30 g Smashed Avocado and Salsa, Raspberries and Black Coffee.



Lunch – 3 PPV

1 C. Greek Nonfat Plain Yogurt with Vanilla Stevia, Cinnamon, Strawberries

    Who ever would have thought working at a Food Truck could be so darned much fun?
