Happy Monday all! Last night I actually told The Husband I really wanted to have pancakes with bacon while watching Iron Chef at 10 PM. He said he was going to tell me that sounded good and he doesn’t even like pancakes. They were not even cooking pancakes on the show, but, for some reason I wanted them right then and there.
Don’t worry ~ I resisted firing up the griddle and went to bed a little hungry. I actually may have even dreamed about pancakes and syrup and butter and if we had bananas to put on top (which we don’t) LOL.
I LOVE the ingredient list and that they use “oat flour” which I use in every pancake I make.
2 pancakes for 4 points+ is pretty darn good too!
Only somehow I added way too much water so I ended up with 8 thing pancakes. They were still AMAZING!!!
I had 4 “thin cakes” topped with 1 Tbsp drizzled PURE Maple Syrup, 1 Tbsp Whipped Butter and some berries. (8 mouthwatering points+)
With a size of Trader Joe’s Peppered Turkey Bacon ~ 3 slices for 1 point+! It’s been TOO LONG since I’ve had this bacon!
Delicious and everything I “dreamt” it would be.
This breakfast kept me full for 6 hours and I wasn’t starving when I got back from my lunchtime walk ~ awesome!
Lunch today and most likely tomorrow will look exactly like what I had yesterday. Even though it’s totally doughy and mushy, this Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Sage Butter tasted better today (6 points+)
Plus a HUGE Bowl of “Spicy Peanut Asian Slaw” ~ 1 1/2 cups organic broccoli slaw, 1/2 cup shredded carrots, 2 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette, crushed red pepper flakes (2 points+)
I wasn’t really hungry this afternoon per say, but, my mouth wanted something. I received this Weight Watchers Lemon Mousse Pie Bar as a sample in my meeting on Sunday.
This is WHY I do not buy Weight Watchers bars too often ~ the ingredient list is SO LONG and I cannot pronounce a lot of the things in the bar. I WISH they would just use real ingredients so I could play along
That being said ~ this was delicious! It’s tart like a lemon bar, yet crunchy. It didn’t fill me up because they are small, but, it was a nice “treat”.
Dinner tonight wasn’t fancy at all, but, it was EXACTLY what I was craving!
BBQ Chicken x’s 2 (3 points+) ~ topped with the last of my Gayle’s Sweet & Sassy Apple Cider Smoke BBQ Sauce…..I am so sad my Gayle’s is gone ~ must find more ASAP!
Trader Joe’s Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes! 6 points+ because I had a double serving.
Grilled Asparagus topped with garlic salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Do you ever “dream” about something you want to make and can’t wait to make it the next day?
Ok, I know I am weird because I think about food all day long ~ I blame all the recipes that show up in my inbox though. I can honestly say as I go to sleep I plan out my entire days food in my head each night and I usually can’t wait to dig in the next day….Maybe that’s why I ALWAYS wake up starving
Off to finish watching The Bachelor Tell All ~ I actually kind of feel bad for crazy Michele.
