I LOVE early morning Saturday workouts, they honestly just start your day off right and set the tone for the day. We had a pretty awesome Saturday planned out going to the Napa Valley Home & Garden Show and Farmer’s Market, but, my Calorie Blasting Hills Walk was definitely a highlight.
I whipped up a 6 point Egg Sandwich on Trader Joe’s Fat Free Multi-Grain Bread with a “fried” in nonstick spray egg and whipped butter.
FUN FACT ~ Did you all know that whipped butter is 1 Weight Watcher Point less than the non whipped version (2 pts versus 3 ~ bonus plan!)
On our way out to the Farmer’s Market, we got our usual Road Trip Starbuck’s drinks 😀 ~ his & hers (in my oh so dirty car).
The Saturday Farmer’s Market was awesome ~ everything looked soooo fresh and good. I picked up some “glowing” Baby Bok Choy, Swiss Chard & Zucchini.
Two types of cherries (they don’t last long around here!)
NECTARINES!!!! Apricots and Apriums (cross between a plum & apricot).
Then, we were off to the Home & Garden Show. I LOVE The Husband ~ he knew to make the first stop at the GOURMET TENT where they have all the kitchen stuff!
Ohhhh and she has new cookie flavors ~ RAINBOW SUGAR COOKIES!!
Yup, I pretty much sampled them and bought one to have on the spot :D Cookies for a 10 am snack always are good fuel 😀
We also visited the other vendor’s that Annie shares her kitchen with. We both sampled and LOVED the Napa Valley Culinary Artist treats.
This pack is mainly for The Husband but I did try the lemon bar ~ might be the BEST LEMON BAR I’ve ever had ~ that would be a marshmallow topping on top of lemon curd with a Madagascar Vanilla Bean Short Bread Crust.
I probably got a little too excited when I saw the Watkins Cinnamon that Janetha ALWAYS uses and swears its the best cinnamon around. I picked up their black pepper too because it smells just like freshly ground black pepper. I LOVED their Blazin’ Cajun and Salsa Spices too ~ you can use them as rubs, seasoning, in dips, etc.
I also had a delicious mini soup sample from Plentiful Pantry.
I have to admit, the fact that she had WW Points out there totally made me want to buy it….the ingredients are just ok, but, the stats are awesome. I LOVE that you just add water and can load it up with veggies.
At this point, The Husband made me leave the kitchen tent for fear I’d buy everything :D I can’t wait to try all my fun new products.
After all the treats, we stopped at this funny Euro Body Shaper station. They say that 10 minutes of having your bootie shake like crazy is the same as running. I am not sure how true that is but it was definitely easier 🙂
The Husband couldn’t resist the 1/2 pound polish sausage (have I ever told you of his hot dog/sausage fetish – he gets them everywhere we go! lol). I thought I’d be brave and bit right into the grilled jalepeno he got with it ~ HOLY HOTNESS….don’t try this at home 😮
We are on a quest to find a cute stone bench for our front porch so I snapped pictures of the different ones we saw for comparison.
Lunch was at Wing Stop, a place The Husband has been wanting to try since my nephew keeps raving about their wings.
You can get boneless or bone in wings with mix and match sauces – fun!
We stuck with mild and Original HOT!
I had 4 bites that were crispy, coated and spicy. The Mild needed more HEAT for me.
REAL chicken breast!
I picked a side of carrots/celery.
And ate half of these bourbon beans that were just ok ~ the bourbon was super strong.
Do you ever just want something because it was part of the original plan, but, you know you don’t need it? Ummmm…..That was some FF Vanilla & Mango Froyo that put me OverTheTop!
TOTAL FOOD COMA, but, TOTALLY worth it too :D So glad I saved all my WPA because I am pretty sure I used them today.
We both were not sure hungry so my Fava Bean Pasta Toss is going to have to wait.
I whipped up a couple of BLTA’s with an arugula salad for dinner.
I only had a 1/2 a sandwich because I wasn’t really hungry but I knew I’d be later. I used Milton Multi-Grain…I LOVE the sweet nuttiness of all the seeds.
Fast Arugula Salad ~ Arugula tossed in Newman’s Own Light Lime Vinaigrette ~ I find that citrus flavors really cut the bitterness and bite of arugula.
I have another MEYER LEMON RECIPE in the works…..any guesses?? It’s NOT what you think 😉
