Happy Saturday all! We have had such a busy, but, completely productive day. I am totally a “Lists Person”. I pretty much make up lists for everything and don’t even get me started on Post-It Notes. The Husband is probably worse than me with Post It’s and Sharpe Pens ~ he uses his Post-It’s for little notes to me ~ I use them for well, um to make lists for my lists…lol! As much as I LOVE technology, there is just something so satisfying about making up a list and checking it off.
Before heading out the door to tackle our todo list, I whipped up Egg-Wiches for us. Oh how I’ve missed them….
- 2 slices Trader Joe’s FF Multi-Grain Bread (3 points+)
- 1 “fried” egg (2 points+)
- 1/2 Tbsp Whipped Butter (1 points+)
After running all around town and cleaning house, we decided we earned lunch at Panera!
I got my usual Pick 2 ~ Soup and Salad. I have decided I am totally going to re-create this BBQ Chicken salad because I am IN LOVE with it!
1/2 a BBQ Chopped Chicken Salad ~ chicken, romaine lettuce, roasted corn, black beans, tortilla strips & BBQ ranch dressing, drizzled with BBQ sauce.
Low-Fat Chicken Noodle
Since I was really hungry today, I went with the Whole Grain Baguette over the apple. It was warm, toasty, crunchy, doughy and good!
Using Panera’s Nutrition Calculator, my lunch came up to 12 points+ and worth every single one!
We made sure to save our Costco trip for AFTER lunch so we wouldn’t be as tempted by the samples. I will confess I did have the PopChips Sample and a piece of Tri Tip. Considering they had the sample people on like EVERY corner, I consider that a success!
For dinner, The Husband grilled up these super cute Thin Pork Chops we picked up at Trader Joe’s. My Mini Chop was 1 ounce for 1 points+.
I will be updating my Recipe Page Soon to add in this salad ~ it’s awesome!
Corn on the cobb! I decided tonight, frozen is just not the same as fresh. The Husband told me I am just spoiled on Farmer’s Market corn that is picked that day…..maybe! (1 points+)
After dinner, I experimented making these 1 points+ Mini Strawberry Muffins for my Weight Watchers meeting tomorrow. I am serving them up with Homemade 1 points+ Strawberry Butter and Homemade 0 points+ Homemade “Strawberry Cream Cheese” (using Greek Yogurt).
Recipes coming up soon!
I am pretty sure tomorrow is going to be even busier than today since we are heading to out to the Alameda Antique Fair, then, over to our friends for a Super Bowl Party.
Are you a “Lists” Person? If so, what do you use your lists for? I am ALWAYS looking for more ways to “justify” my lists
