It was so FUN reading the Diners, Drive-Ins and Dive places you all have visited or want to visit on my last post. I actually think it might be kind of fun to find one place in each city we travel to and check it out…..I know that’s a lot of “Diner Food” but you only live once
Today was one of those days where it’s gloomy/rainy outside and you just want to stay inside/not cook.
Breakfast was simply a Cinnamon Raisin Bagel thin with 1 Tbsp Natural Honey Roasted Peanut Butter (6 points+)
Plus a Mango ~ Raley’s (our local grocery store) has them on sale for $0.37 each. I am really trying to convince myself I like them, but, I find that if they are not super ripe, I think they taste like Christmas Trees (for the record, no, I’ve never tasted a Christmas Tree ~ it just tastes like they smell).
I worked away on recipes all morning, but, did manage to break for a quick cheese & fruit snack (1 points+)
For lunch we both thought those BLTA’s we had last week sounded awesome. The only problem was we sort of lacked the “key ingredients” like bacon and bread.
Why go to the store and buy it, when you can head over to the Joy of Eating for the BEST BLTA’s in the world.
I started with a side salad with my dressing on the side (2 points+)
Then, I sort of changed my mind though when I remembered the last time I was there with TJ and she introduced me to BACONWICHES.
Egg White Veggie Scramble (3 points+)
I had one slice of their homemade bread topped with 1 Tbsp Jam…then, I cut my one slice of bread into 4’s so I could have TWO sandwiches.
Adding 1/2 a slice of bacon to each sandwich half (5 points+)
Smooshed together and savored…..salty, sweet, chewy, beyond words good!
Dessert shared with The Husband.
We decided to walk along the Bay after lunch.
They had a Jet Ski Race and Show going on that was actually pretty interesting to watch.
These guys kept flipping in 180’s and 360’s and double flipping. It was pretty cool to watch.
We both spent the afternoon entering RECIPES!!! Major KUDOS to Carolynn and The Husband for helping out entering recipes because they both totally do not have to…..LOVE!
We were undecided about dinner and not super hungry. He decided on Chef Salad with Hot Links LOL…..
My dinner was a little “CORNIER”!
I rummaged the freezer and came up with some Fresh Corn, Potato & Bacon Corn Chowder I froze ~ SCORE!!! Topped with chives & crushed red pepper flakes (6 points+)
Plus one of those ADDICTIVE Chipotle Cheddar BEER Corn Muffins (4 points+)
10 points+ for everything and I didn’t have to cook at all! Now you all know exactly what I freeze everything LOL….
Dessert is going to be a big bowl of watermelon with cantaloupe and some Decaf French Vanilla Coffee while we watch The Next Food Network Star!
