I mean….have you ever seen a Parsley Plant grow this big for no apparent reason???
Or Rosemary….I think they are competing for who can grow the tallest…..
Lemon Thyme ~ Our garden this year is totally Herbs Gone Wild ~ seriously LOL….
They are bigger than the tomato plants…..
And even HIS 4 corn stalks
The only thing not so happy about all this greenness ~ the Lemon Cucumber
The cool part is this is only after 1 month ~ you can see what our garden looked like when we planted it over on this post.
I absolutely LOVE looking out our kitchen window every morning and seeing this….I really do tell The Husband to come look every day because his “corn” looks bigger…..and, the part that is even funnier…..He always says “Hi Corn!”
Yup, that’s why I think we need to get out more!
Speaking of that ~ House of Prime Rib might just be my all time FAVORITE place in the world now. I have never ordered Prime Rib (ever ~ it’s too “beefy” to me, but, I would go back just to eat it there). I counted every single point of my dinner from the hot sourdough bread to the garlic mashed potatoes and wine ~ all 41 points+ worth.
Then, I made sure I was up at 5 AM on and the treadmill for another Couch to 5K 30 minute run/walk this morning.
On my way in I stopped for a Venti Iced Coffee with 1 pump Mocha, 1 Pump Vanilla and a splash of 1/2 and 1/2 for 2 points+.
I wasn’t super hungry for breakfast so I “snacked” instead. I am so bummed this reduced fat Sargento “barely” comes in at 2 points+….I thought for sure it would be 1. It’s worth it though.
About an hour later my hunger kicked in so I snacked on some veggie tray veggies with 2 Tbsp Light Ranch (2 points+)
I am also “that” person who fires up the grill at 6 am just so I can have Trader Joe’s Grilled Chili Lime Chicken Burgers for lunch.
Topped with 1/4 cup Cojita Cheese, 1 Tbsp roasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds!)
All on top of a bed of crunchy greens and things with 2 Tbsp Newman’s Light Lime Vinaigrette. My entire salad came in at 10 points+.
As I was pondering my afternoon snack, my co-worker stopped by and asked if I wanted to make a coffee run……um, Yes, Please!!!! As if I needed more
Small Nonfat Decaf Latte (3 points+)
We also each had a scoop of Biscoff Spread with our lattes (2 points+)
When I walked in the door The Husband had already started making dinner. He grilled up Bonesless Pork Chops with his “secret BBQ sauce” (2 oz for 2 points+)
And grilled asparagus with Olive Oil, Sea Salt & Black Pepper (2 points+)
While I made up the fries ~ It was really hard work putting these Trader Joe’s Frozen Shoe String Fries on the tray and baking them for 14 minutes.
They turn out so crispy as if you “fried” them and you get a lot. 3 oz = 4 points+.
Simple, delicious and totally worth repeating.
I am currently trying to pretend the caramel Dove’s are not on the counter…..I need to just walk away already!
