Happy Monday all! I am glad you all dug the Friday Treats ~ Those Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cups are pretty tasty. This weekend was AWESOME, but, today’s eats might have been even better. I might be impartial though since there wasn’t too much cooking on my part involved.
But, first….a few weekend highlights.
I baked up The Husband’s request Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies ~ it was totally a good reason to bust out and use my new fancy red KitchenAid Mixer 😀
We also “harvested” Mr. Stripey ~ The Husband’s HUGE heirloom tomato plant.
I whipped up a big batch of Homemade Crock Pot Stewed Diced Tomatoes ~ WOW! All I can say is I’ll probably never buy/use a can again! Recipe and How-To coming up this week!
We also saw ~ The Social Network! It was SO COOL~ I honestly never knew there was so much history involved in the creation of Facebook. It was really interesting ~ you totally need to see it if you haven’t :) If you have, WHAT DID YOU THINK OF IT?
Ok, moving onto today. My eats were not super exciting from a culinary perspective, but, they were just as delicious in every simple way.
Berries ‘n; Cream
1/2 cup TJ’s 0% Greek Yogurt
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup raspberries
Drizzle of Agave ~ MMMMM – LOVE! (2 points)
Protein power ~ Morning Star Soy Sausage (2 pts)
Surprisingly breakfast and being super busy at work held me over until lunch time ~ 4 hours!
Last year I became a bit obsessed with Whole Foods Soup Bar because I discovered how AMAZING it can be to mix & match your soups! Who says you have to have just one flavor when you pay the same price for the cup……Honestly though, I really ended up mixing my soups last year because I couldn’t decide which flavor I wanted 😀
SOUP FUSION = Mixing & Matching Your soups because they ALL sound good ~ It is the perfect solution for the indecisive person like me.
1/2 Turkey Chili and 1/2 Southwestern Chicken Chili
My friend and I shared this AMAZING Organic Ciabatta Bread (only $0.99!)
I totally ate ALL of my soup and 1/2 that loaf of bread (9 point estimate)
The Husband declared a Monday “Date Night” tonight which included NO COOKING. Um, you don’t have to twist my arm when I can have someone cook this for me 😉
10 points and worth every HEAPING point. I <3 Chipotle & their Guacamole!
This week I am hoping to share 1-2 vacation recaps. that Stewed Tomato How-To (it’s so easy) and some delicious new recipes I plan on trying 🙂
Have you all seen any good movies or are there any movies out there you want to see?? Do tell because I am always looking for fun new things to watch.
