Happy Tuesday all! One of my favorite Simple Start breakfasts involves “fried” potatoes & scrambled eggs.
I “fried” 1 cup of Ore Ida Western Potatoes (they are just frozen potatoes with peppers, onions & salt) in my 2 tsp. of healthy oil, then, sprinkled it with a little paprika (for color & a sweet peppery taste), garlic salt and black pepper.
Meanwhile, I scrambled 2 eggs with a splash of milk, hot sauce, sea salt & black pepper.
With a side of blueberries for sharing ~ 1/2 for him and 1/2 for me.
For one delicious, 100% Simple Start Breakfast that kept me full for 5 hours. 7 points+
I spent today at the winery so my co-worker and I stopped to grab non-fat lattes for the drive. (SS/SF) – 3 points+
I have been looking forward to today’s lunch all week long. I absolutely love Catelli’s in Geyserville and take every chance I can to visit when we are at the winery.
I had two bread challenges today to decide if it was worth it.
First up the basket of homemade hot sour dough bread with this amazing garlic sun dried tomato butter.
Second up ~ their homemade garlic bread!
It was a really tough choice on what to indulge in, but, I decided in the end, the garlic bread was totally worth it. (SS + 4 WPA) – 4 points+
I knew I had two great Simple Start Options ~ One minestrone + a garden salad or picking one of their salads and adding grilled chicken with oil & vinegar.
My plan was to have the Kale Salad with Grilled Chicken. It’s honestly the the best Kale Salad I’ve ever had in my life. The Chef rocks because she shared her recipe online ~ I am totally recreating this salad with my next batch of Kale!
My co-worker wanted to split everything so she could try more since it was her first visit. So, I skipped the chicken and ate half this salad.
Organic Kale, Meyer Lemon, Walnuts, Blood Oranges, Parmesan, Croutons, Olive Oil, Salt & Pepper ~ (SS/SF + 4 WPA) – 6 points+ for my share
Dish #2 Domenic’s Spicy Tomato & Basil Mushroom sauce served up special for us with Multi-Grain Penne Not as planned & not a perfect choice, but, totally worth every bite.
(SS/SF) – 5 points+ for half the dish.
I ended up getting home pretty late after our 2 hour commute back. I was happy when The Husband suggested cereal for dinner and no cooking ~ OK!
I balanced out my richer than planned lunch with a bowl of shredded wheat topped with a banana, blueberries, cinnamon and non-fat milk. (SS/SF) – 6 points+.
So far this week, I’ve made it through two dining out celebrations with two to go. I can make the next two days on track before the remaining 2 birthday celebrations start on Friday.
