This morning I tried a new trick but I am not sure if it worked or not ~ I added a splash of Maple Syrup to my pancake batter pre-cooking, but, then, I forgot and poured Maple Syrup over the top anyway 😀 Oops….Maybe I need a Do-Over!
I also remembered my re-usable cup for my Venti Iced Decaf Latte with Caramel Drizzle (3 pts).
I had planned on using this Jalapeño Cheddar Roll I picked up at Whole Foods yesterday for lunch, but, I couldn’t wait. Topped with a melted Babybel Cheese (3 pts)!
I am not sure what my issue is but ALL week I cannot seem to stay inside or at my desk. I was excited for my lunch, but, easily swayed at the opportunity to eat outside in the sunshine!
Ummmm, ya, we ended up at TR2 again for Tacoliciousness!!!
I just can’t get enough of their Spicy Chicken Tacos that are topped with GUACAMOLE & HOT SAUCE?!
The COOLEST part is that next time they said they would share their secret of how to make that chicken!!!! You will be shocked at how it starts – I can’t wait to re-create it. I had two tacos 8 pts plus a few chips with salsa (3 pts)
I think I have convinced several people in our office that HEALTHY BANANA SUNDAES are better than Ice cream. Our R&D guy even told me they have the BIG Cuisinart I can use to make it over my Mini Chopper 😀
When I got home, I couldn’t wait to open our CheriBundi. I picked the original with 50 cherries! That’s a lot of cherries – can you imagine making up some juicer recipe that has 50 cherries in it?
Whenever I drink juice it’s important that it’s 100% juice and that it isn’t made up of a bunch of added sugars. I liked the stats and ingredient list!
I whipped up a quick spritzer to enjoy with dinner. I actually liked the flavor of CheriBundi – it reminds me of the inside of Cherry Pie. The Husband says it tastes like a Home Run Pie which I’ve never had, but, that might help 🙂
It’s pretty strong so I am not sure if you could drink a bunch of it at a time – that could be a good thing though.
Thanks again, CheriBundi ~ I can’t wait to try the other flavors!
Dinner tonight was FAST, FRESH and HEALTHY thanks to Cooking Light!
I measured out 8 oz of Barilla Multi-Grain Butterfly Pasta on my FAVORITE SCALE!
I used an organic orange and a beautiful Meyer Lemon from my Grandmas tree.
I decided to use this Trader Joe’s Garlic Aioli Mustard instead of Stone-Ground Mustard.
This mustard rocks because it has a subtle garlic flavor (like garlic bread) with a slight dijon mustard taste.
Whisk together your dressing while your chicken and pasta cook.
I roasted my chicken like I did the other day, sans the fresh herbs because I was too lazy to pick them in the sudden rain that appeared..
I roasted the walnut for 3 minutes with the chicken and chopped everything up in one bowl.
Add the pasta and dressing.
I started off with a layer of organic romaine.
Then, added 1 cup of pasta, extra chives, walnuts and organic cherry tomatoes.
Absolutely delicious! The WALNUTS really stand out when roasted and make this dish rich in flavor. I LOVED the crunch and sweetness of the grapes. We both gave this recipe 4 out of 5 stars so it’s a definite keeper.
I bet the leftovers are even better ~ can’t wait! Click HERE for the Recipe! I had 1/2 a serving for 4 pts.
I have a feeling I am going over in my points tonight thought because The Husband just brought out CHOCLOVE…..Must resist, can’t resist…..good thing for those extra Weekly Points Allowances!
ONE MORE DAY to enter to WIN a bunch of WISEMAN TEAS and the COOLEST TEA POT you will ever see!
