Happy Friday all! How was your day? My day was super productive and actually kinda fun. While I woke up early, I decided to relax sipping coffee and watching the news over hopping in the treadmill. I thought I’d take a long lunch time walk in the sunshine but that never happened. Neither did my[Read More…]
Happy Monday all! How was your weekend and day? I am sorry I didn’t have a chance to do a weekend recap and weekly menu yesterday. We had such a fun and busy weekend with an even busier week planned. I cannot wait as the countdown to France is on….but, first, I have so much work to get done this week.
You know you are going to have a good day when you have a 7 am Monday morning meeting (boo!) But, your boss stops by to say, let’s have breakfast after! Much better than the fruit / yogurt I had planned.
I failed at taking a picture of my Crepeville Bacon & Eggs but it looked close to this.
2 eggs over medium, 2 pieces bacon (3 sp), 1 slice sourdough tough (2 sp) and a couple hashbrown bites (2 sp). So good!On my way back, I got this beautiful tall, nonfat cappuccino with caramel on the foam (2 sp).I also got spoiled even further with lunch outside in the sunshine at Jack’s Urban Eats.
I only managed 1/2 this salmon salad though as I stopped when full even though my mouth said more #success (4 sp).?Did you all know you get 13 Trader Joe’s Peanut Butter Pretzels for 5 sp? Honestly my favorite new snack as it’s the perfect amount.I had that with a handful of the cherries we picked this weekend (yep, that’s 13 lbs of zero point snackin’!)Last night, I put together this Slow Cooker Turkey Sausage, Red Beans & Rice recipe so all I had to do this morning was add water and turn it on.
I quick soaked the beans for an hour and chopped the veggies.Add the sausage plus herbs, hot sauce, 1 tsp Cajun seasoning, 2 tsp sugar and water then cook on low for 10 hours.One cup = 4 WWFreestyle Smartpoints and served up with 1/2 cup Trader Joe’s Jasmine Rice (7 sp).I love that the beans pick up the smoke from the sausage, you get hints of Cajun spice and then all that tasty, herby broth soaked rice.25 Daily WWFreestyle Smartpoints, 8K steps
