Happy Sunday all! I am FINALLY back in action ~ I think, fingers, toes and more crossed!
Let me start by saying I MISSED YOU ALL! Seriously, I felt so lost each day not “thinking in blog” about what I cool new product I found, recipe I made or place we went to. I sadly still took my camera everywhere and snapped pictures for a sense of normalcy, I guess LOL.
There are still a few things I am working on with the new design/layout but I am hoping to have them finished up this week. I will definitely be highlighting some of the cool new things I LOVE in a post soon….. I am glad to be back to my dailies (& on track!)….now, let’s see if I remember how to do this.
Every 2nd Sunday of each month The Husband wakes us up at the crack of dawn like a little kid on Christmas morning.
He absolutely LOVES going to the Sacramento Antique Faire. I whip us up egg-wiches on Trader Joe’s FF Multi-Grain Bread for the ride…..(5 points+)
He usually bribes me into going with promises of Starbuck’s to sip and savor as we walk around for hours.
Since it was feeling a little “fall like” today, I ordered a tall fat free chai tea latte (4 points+)
On our way home, we headed to Mary’s Pizza Shack for lunch. I had to try the Minestrone Soup when the server said if you LOVE spicy foods, try this…..um, ok
I am totally re-creating this soup soon ~ it was smoky, spicy, salty and chunky. (3 points+)
I LOVE their salads and often get them for meals. However, I knew I wanted their Pizza and Salad Lunch combo and went for it.
Side Salad with 1 Tbsp ranch, fork dipped (4 points+)
Then, I moved onto my slice of MUSHROOM PIZZA that was seriously as big as my head…maybe bigger. Glad, I got THIN crust! I am counting it as 2 slices (10 points+)
We spent the rest of the day being lazy and watching the entire season of Expedition Impossible. It totally makes you want to go out and be adventurous….
Instead, we just settled for grilling LOL
BBQ Chicken Legs are one of my FAVORITE things in life. I am not sure if it’s because you get to lick your fingers and get it all over your face or if it’s because they really are finger licking good. I LOVE them and went back for another (5 points+)
Served with 1/2 cup of my Healthier Potato Salad. (3 points+).
Plus a Big MOUND of Kale “Chips”…especially when you get the parmesan crispies. (1 points+)
HERE IS WHAT IS ON THE MENU THIS WEEK
