Happy Monday all! Who is excited for the Bachelor Pad 2? I don’t know what it is about that show, but, I LOVE the drama of it all and cannot wait to watch it tonight! Today’s eats have been pretty darn tasty and I LOVE that everything falls into my points+ target for the day.
Sometimes I think orders get “lost in translation”. This morning as I was rushing out the door, I didn’t have time to make up coffee. No worries…enter the Café Cart on the Train.
My order: AN ICED COFFEE…..This is what I got ~ There is coffee and there is ice ~ it works. LOL.
I wasn’t sure what sounded good this morning for breakfast, but, I knew I wanted a Pluot and Nectarine.
I also knew if I wanted it to stick with me I needed some protein so I added a Morning Star Veggie Sausage (cooks in 30 seconds!) and a light string cheese.
Breakfast on the go for a 3 points+ that was completely tasty and kept me full for 3 hours.
In my RUSH to get out the door this morning, I grabbed a container from the freezer, threw some lettuce/carrots/tomatoes/cucumber salad in a container with a Chobani.
I FEARED the unknown….I didn’t label my container so I didn’t know if it was soup or sauce.
I think secretly my brain wanted Tacubaya this morning I LOVE that place!
I ordered my usual Taco de Pollo (5 points+)
But, ventured out away from my usual FAVORITE Enadalad de Prima for some comfort food I have been craving.
Tamal de Verduras– summer squash, cremini mushrooms, queso cheese & roasted poblanos steamed in banana leaves with salsa verde, crema & cilantro
I LOVED the heartiness of the mushrooms and the little pockets of cheese with the sweet corn tamale! This was HUGE so I am counting it as two tamales (10 points+).
When I walked in the door tonight The Husband already had dinner started with all of his favorites…..any guesses?!
Tri tip of course! 3 oz of perfectly crusted, yet, soft Harris Ranch Tri Tip (3 oz – 3 points+)
The SWEETEST & by far the BEST organic corn of the season (2 points+).
I am so proud of him for throwing green beans in there too ~ he remembered
The BEST dinners are the ones you have help cooking…..
Complete with dessert!
NEW AT FRIENDS FOR WEIGHT LOSS
* I satisfy my “Fried Zucchini” with Ranch craving with these 2 points+ Zucchini Stix!
Name one GOOD THING about your Monday.
Mine was being letting The Husband choose what he wanted for dinner, then, having him be so excited he started the grill! Oh and all the fruit today….I LOVE Farmer’s Market season!
