Mouse Tales

After I slammed down a few cups of coffee this morning,  I began to think about breakfast. Although it is not paleo, oatmeal sounded absolutely wonderful and I jumped up and headed into the kitchen.  I had a few of those cranberry, apple, walnut instant oatmeal cups on hand and I foraged through my pantry to find them.  Right before I opened up the cup I turned to look at the nutrition facts.  What?!  Fifty-three grams of carbs and some ridiculous amount of sugar. I put the oatmeal back in the pantry and closed the door muttering a few adult words while my dog stared at me. I had pretty much cooked almost every bit of food on hand trying out the new Instant Pot that I purchased weeks ago.  Now I was down to eggs and high carb foods, so I cooked up a couple of eggs and called it good.  Late morning I headed off to the gym for a quick workout and by mid afternoon I had passed hangry and was feeling sick.  Hangry is the point of hunger where you swear everyone in a 2 mile radius is going down if you don’t get fed immediately. I didn’t even experience much of the hangry phase, I slid right on into “I am gonna be sick.”  Since my oldest son was home, I decided it was a perfect time to have a lunch date and we headed off to a local restaurant/ bar.  The restaurant part of the building was incredibly cold so we worked our way to the bar.  If you have ever read If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff, you will understand the next part of my story….

If you put an adult in a bar, they are going to ask for an adult beverage.  I decided on a vodka cranberry which arrived to the table a very pale, pink color so essentially I had jez-timms-128933-unsplashvodka with a few droplets of cranberry juice. I then decided on a cheeseburger without the bun and instead of fries, I ordered a side salad with a raspberry vinaigrette. However, if you give the adult one vodka cranberry, chances are they are going to ask for another…
