French Fries and Fruit

I am not the healthiest of eaters. The fact that I just became Mayor of McDonalds on Foursquare proves this.

DH & I spent Sat with our niece and nephew. After a morning of swimming, sandbox digging and giggles, we told them we would take them to McDonalds for lunch. Both kids promptly responded with shouts of "EWWWWWWWW".

Wait, What? This is not the response DH & I expected. Don't they know their Auntie is MAYOR of McDonalds?? Nope. The kids wanted PB&J sandwiches with fruit.

Ummm fruit?????  Luckily I had diced pears in the fridge. Also being a lover of smores I always have graham crackers on hand. And I had recently made an apple pie & I had 2 left over apples (thank God for apple pie).

The kids enjoyed their PB&J's with side dishes of graham crackers, pears and apples. I made DH & I the same identical lunch. After all, if the kids weren't going to eat fatty, salty chips, then neither were we.  When DH was still hungry he had a 2nd sandwich rather than reaching for the chips like he normally would have done.

Looking back later that nite, I realized that I hadn't even missed the chips. Sorry Chips.

When I went grocery shopping yesterday I bought apple sauce instead of M&M's.

Hmmmmm. I think maybe this weekend the kids taught ME something. All I know for sure is that I'm really looking forward to pears and graham crackers with my lunch today.   :)

Welcome to Calico Cali Designs! I’m Kat, digitizer and sewing enthusiast. I learned how to digitize in 2010 from master digitizer Walter Floriani…it was an amazing experience. Soon instead of spending my time sewing, quilting and stitching out other people’s embroidery designs, I was sewing, quilting and stitching out my own embroidery designs. I created this blog, not only as a place to share my embroidery designs, but also as a place to share all the things I make, sew, paint, embroider, and create. You’ll see posts about my life, my studio, patterns I’ve sewn and products I’ve tested. I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them.
