The Husband had us up bright and early this morning to head over to Lowe’s to pick up more bricks for our front landscaping. LOVE him for that since I didn’t sleep for anything last night :/ We have to pick up over 700 so we have been picking up about 100 at a time.
On our way out the door, I toasted a Thomas Double Fiber English muffin with my NEW almond butter ~ SOOO CRUNCHY, CREAMY GOOD! I like the Nut Barn’s Nut Butter because it isn’t oily like several of the store brands. I also had him buy me a tall FF Chai Tea Latte for being a super trooper 😀 (Chai is my favorite FALL drink)
After loading over 160 bricks and unloading, plus catching up on posting, it was time for lunch. I snacked on the remnants of Parmesan Garlic Pita Chips while I made lunch.
Lunch was healthy and something The Husband requests just about EVERY day ~ BLTA’s.
3 slices of TJ’s 97% FF Turkey Bacon (the cat and it’s dog friend had the other)
2 slices TJ’s FF Multi-Grain Bread, toasted (it’s all gone now :()
1/4 mashed avocado sprinkled with sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
BIG tomato slices
MMMMMM….and only 5 Weight Watcher Points!
I have been going through cider withdrawals ever since we left Apple Hill. I knew I should’ve just bought some juice because it’s the BEST there, but, I felt I didn’t need to drink a gallon worth of calories/points. To satisfy this craving, I picked up Trader Joe’s Spiced Cider.
It has decent nutritionals and a CLEAN ingredient list.
I boiled up 8 oz and served it up with……
a Trader Joe’s Windmill Cookie. I LOVE these cookies – if you are an almond cookie fan and like a little sugar sprinkle, these are the cookies for you. But, warning, they are highly addicting 🙂
About an hour later, i decided to have a “real” snack with a Yoplait Lemon Parfait Yogurt. See – I fit in 2 fruit servings and a dairy serving with my afternoon snacks 😀 lol….
It was an amazing day outside today so we decided to do a little BBQ. I grilled up a bunch of organic chicken legs with Gayle’s Sweet & Sassy Honey BBQ Sauce.
Plus 2 of the “Home Fries” I made for The Husband.
AMAZING organic swiss chard ~ red & green ~ steamed and sprinkled with a little butter, garlic salt and freshly ground black pepper!
I have been wanting to make this Acorn Squash Recipe with Brown Sugar Butter Sauce ever since I saw it on Alice’s site. I had it for dessert tonight, modifying the recipe by omitting the nutmeg and only using 1 tsp butter with 1 Tbsp brown sugar. I think next time I’d double the brown sugar. It was AWESOME ~ buttery, sweet and cinnamony ~ try it, you’ll like it!
All together it was a super filling dinner.
I feel like my day was filled with fall eats. Can you believe it’s almost Halloween and day light savings too?! Crazy….we are busy decorating our office for our contest & I STILL have to figure out my costume – ahhhh!
I finally did a little blog catch up work this weekend too ~ get ready for a pretty cool week including 2 fun announcements, another giveaway, a fun picture post about a “famous house” we visited and a bunch of NEW recipes ~ Yeah!
For now….my book and bed are calling my name! Nite all!
