Happy Super Bowl Sunday all! As promised, this morning’s Weight Watcher’s meeting started off in style with a Red & Gold 49er’s Themed Party. Complete with all red & gold foods
Pineapple & Strawberries….
Golden Crispy Apple Chips ~ look how many you get for 2 points+!
Plus My Mini Red & Gold Inside Out Pineapple Muffins.
Complete with delicious coffee to boot!
My plate included a little of everything along with a banana that I brought for staying power.
SF + 1 WPA, 1 points+
I lost .4 lbs this week and I will take it ~ all losses add up and anything down or with the word loss in it is a success in my book!
After the meeting we stopped at Starbuck’s for lattes before heading out to spend 4 hours walking the Alameda Antique Fair in 65+ degrees of sunshine. (SF) – 3 points+
We stopped for lunch at one of the local vendors at the fair that serves the most delicious Grilled Organic Teriyaki Chicken Bowls with brown rice….aka The Brown Bowl.
100% Simply Filling & 110% Delicious! (SF) – 8 points+
As soon as we walked in the door, I started preparing our Super Bowl snacks.
First Up ~ A modified version of these Creamy Artichoke Stuffed Mushrooms.
They are probably the easiest stuffed mushrooms you will ever make. Simply chop the stems, add a little garlic salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper flakes and green onion. Sauté until soft, about 5 minutes.
Stir in 1/2 cup Artichoke Jalapeno Spread with 1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs.
Stir to combine, then, stuff a little in each mushroom. I used an 8 oz package of white mushrooms and it had 15 mushrooms in it.
Sprinkle with another 1/4 cup Panko and bake at 400 for 20 minutes.
Each mushroom is 1 points+ and totally rich, creamy, crunchy, salty and totally satisfying.
(SF + 3 WPA) – 3 points+
Served up with veggie tray veggies and a little light ranch. (SF + 1 WPA) – 1 points+
Watermelon and blueberries for dessert.
Our Super Bowl dinner involved these Crescent Rolls I picked up at Trader Joe’s a little while back.
I already knew I loved Trader Joe’s for making Buttermilk Biscuits without Transfats and High Fructose Corn Syrup for my Bubble Up Casserole….but, then, they had to go and make crescent rolls too.
Only 3 points+ for these sweet, doughy, buttery crescent rolls.
I was originally going to put the rolls in a 9 x 13 pan to make taco squares, but, as you all know, I am a sucker for single serving cups where you get to eat the whole thing.
Crescent Roll Taco Cup Success!! These Taco Cups are seriously amazing and I am pretty sure it due to the sweet, crunchy, crescent rolls. The recipe is coming up this week
Each cup is 4 points+ or Simply Filling (SF + 3 WPA for the crescent cup) ~ I had 2 with all the fixin’s.
- 11 WPA used, 38 WPA remaining, (24 daily points+)
- AL 139%, 6 Activity Points
HERE IS WHAT IS ON THE MENU THIS WEEK:

- Not-Cho Average Nachos for him, Healthy Nachos! or Taco Salad for me
