And so the day was born, January 1, 2010. The beginning was not auspicious, I had forgotten to unset my alarm and it rudely played it's annoying morning tune at 6:30 A.M. But of course I wouldn't have witnessed the magic of the morning otherwise, so it really was a good beginning.
Many of you are still sleeping off last night's festivities. I, on the other hand, am awake and ready to prepare the first breakfast of the decade. I thought about pancakes but no, not enough bang for the buck (too many points for too few bites). So I settled on toasting an Alternative bagel, scrambling up three jumbo egg whites, adding some sliced Vidalia onion and smoked salmon with a creamy wedge of Laughing Cow. A cup of freshly brewed espresso will complete my morning meal for 4 extremely satisfying points. Yum.
Wishing you the best New Year ever! May all your dreams be fulfilled.
