The “Not Quite So Guilty” Puppy

A Not Quite Guilty Puppy!

Well, I’m feeling pursued by the “The Not Quite So Guilty Puppy”. I was reasonably good on Sunday. Norm ate the last of the oatmeal pancakes and there were none left for me. I had cooked them earlier in the week and he nuked a few every day until they were gone. I had cherries and yogurt. I AM getting tired of coconut yogurt.

I got a chance to go to Metchosin Days. It’s a very close “NIMBY”(Not In My Back Yard) community in the greater Victoria area. Very environmentally conscious, organic, hand-crafted bunch of actually, very nice people. I bought some espresso salt from the Pixie Chicks because it gives me a great idea for making Christmas presents with sea salt and herbs and things. It was actually made with really good espresso. I’ve already started making lavender salt. It is very trendy right now with everyone watching how much salt they consume, we can add a pinch of flavoured sea salt for trendoid accents.

There were lots of farm goods, home-baked breads, smoked meats from Smok’n Bones, a pancake breakfast, many types of home-made jams, wild honeys, and more crafts that I could shake my cane at. Norm bought some fresh pecan cinnamon buns and I admit I had half of one and that was enough to get the glorious flavour and beat the crave monster offering sweet baked crave morsels.

It was too early for the smoked and grilled meats on buns and I don’t hardly ever eat jam on a spoon since I can’t have breads so…. I had way less guilt! I did buy three, hand-thrown little stoneware bowls that will make beautiful salt cellars for Christmas presents.

I got some exercise and discovered that walking for a half an hour, even while stopping to check out all the booths, was exhausting when just using my cane. I was starting to list to one side and knew it was time to go home. It was a good day and the house got tidied. I don’t make much mess so it’s easy for me to dust with one hand while caning around the upstairs and for Norm to vacuum. Supper was BBQ’s burgers with bean salad and cucumber salad. Mine had no bun so my guilt was almost completely gone. But I did have popcorn later in the evening. Popcorn is one of those borderline “white foods” I have ot watch for so… no added butter and only a smallish (I love that relative word, that way you have no idea how much popcorn I really had) bowl.

But, not so much guilt and I’ve laid the foundations for a good week of keeping the white food guilt puppies away. Thanks for listening. ;D
