Spontaneity - Keeping an Open Mind

I've been trying to make my way over to my sister-in-law's house all week to buy a couple of raffle tickets.  She's selling raffle tickets for $5 each for a chance to win two tickets to the Philadelphia Eagles at the Chicago Bears game on Sunday, November 28, 2010.  There are only 440 raffle tickets being sold, so it's not astronomical odds.  Tonight was supposed to be the night.  But as luck would have it, she hadn't received the raffle tickets in the mail yet, so it changed my entire game plan.  I was going to grab a salad for dinner while I was out, but since that didn't work out, I had to figure something else out.
I ended up grilling an All-American Incrediburger (on my Rocket Grill of course!) and heating up some of the leftover sweet potatoes from Sunday.  I'm still amazed on some days that I eat as well as I do.  OK, I do NOT eat good all of the time. I have a "junk" meal from time to time.  But for the most part, I do pretty well.  Today it was double fiber toast (6 gr. of fiber per slice) with natural chunky peanut butter for breakfast, a huge salad for lunch, and then my dinner above.  Not bad.  It helps tremendously to have some meals made and in the freezer just waiting to be eaten.  Right now, I have eggplant lasagna, enchilada chili, Moroccan Spinach Lentil Soup with Lemon, Southwestern Tofu burgers, and All-American Incrediburgers in my freezer.  Talk about having a back-up plan ... who knew I could be this prepared?  :::chuckle:::  
Tomorrow will not be a cooking day for me.  On Thursdays, I go play euchre and drink a Blue Moon beer.  (Yes, Blue Moon beer is vegan.  I looked it up, so I can have one guilt free! :)  I'll try to blog, but between my dentist appointment and the card game, I probably won't have time.  Have a great Thursday!
