Simple Happiness

Since I was a kid, I was taught that dinners have to take at least 3-4 quadrants of a plate. Much like a cafeteria tray.

  1. Protein
  2. Vegetable
  3. Starch
  4. Possibly Another Starch

I feel like I’m always trying to replicate that in some capacity. But sometimes I just want a sandwich for dinner. Or sometimes I’m just not really that hungry, and would prefer to snack on edamame. Today was sort of one of those nights.

I don’t know why, but this just screams lunch – not dinner.

Took maybe two minutes to prep.

And I loved it. It wasn’t a glamorous dinner, it certainly wasn’t sexy, but it hit the spot.

You can find so much happiness in the simplest things.

As I’m reading now in The Happiness Project. I’m definitely engaging my happier side these days 🙂

Unhappy though were these leftover roasted vegetables.

One bite and I decided to pass. Some things just don’t age gracefully.

Much like Heidi Montag. Girl is not embracing her age appropriate looks.

Poolside in Las Vegas a few months after surgery, Heidi Montag shows off her new figure. Doctors say she could face health risks after her 10 operations.

In the words of a friend’s son: “{Heidi} Your Face is Bas-Gusting!”

Do you think she recognizes true happiness? Do you?
