4th of July

I spent the day at home relaxing. Around 4pm, I decided that I needed to get dinner started so that my two middle children could go with their friends at 5 to watch the fireworks.

On the menu were black bean burgers, pasta salad and raw chocolate mousse. All the kids but one (Emilee) liked the black bean burgers, all the kids but one (Darian) liked the pasta salad, and I only served the chocolate mousse to Derrick, my youngest (Hanna) and myself. Hanna did not like the chocolate mousse. Oh well, I can’t always win them all over, can I?

 

I did fairly well. I ended up going over calories. It wasn’t too bad though and definitely could have been worse as I thought I was hungry and the truth was I was just bored. I’m so glad I recognized it for what it was and didn’t eat anymore.
