Happy Friday Eve Everyone!!! I cannot wait for the weekend to begin because we have a THREE DAY WEEKEND! But, I am not counting the hours or anything
Thanks for sharing your ideas for getting out of a food rut on yesterday’s post and for understanding that sometimes you just get “cookers block” LOL. I am slowly making my way back to the kitchen and today’s eats were actually “fun” again for me.
Awhile back the peeps over at Weight Watchers sent me some coupons and asked me to review their newest breakfasts and desserts.
The French Toast with Turkey Sausage totally appealed to my sweet/savory side and I like that they are boosting the protein content.
I still don’t totally love their ingredient list, but, it is getting better and I can almost recognize everything in the box.
7 points+ for everything in the box!
I ALWAYS add fruit and/or vegetables to any frozen meal because it helps it stick with me longer and feel like I am getting more.
I actually LOVED the flavor of the maple syrup and the turkey sausage. The french toast is dense, but, in a filling kind of way.
Would you all believe me if I told you I’ve NEVER EVER made EGG SALAD before today?
I’ve eaten it plenty of times, but, I’ve never actually made it.
I have been craving it ever since we helped my parents out last weekend and my mom made it for my dad.
I pondered adding celery and red bell pepper, but, figured since it was my FIRST time making it, I’d keep it plain and simple
3 hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
2 Tbsp Reduced Calorie Mayonnaise
1 tsp regular mustard
Freshly ground Sea Salt and Black Pepper to taste
Mush together in a bowl with a fork.
Makes 2 servings, 4 points+ each
I topped two slices of Trader Joe’s Fat Free Multi-Grain Bread with 1/2 the egg salad mix and crushed red pepper flakes (7 points+)
Cut in half diagonally! I actually pondered little triangles but thought it would be too messy.
I added 3 types of CRUNCH to go with my sandwich.
Spicy Peanut Broccoli Slaw (Broccoli Slaw topped with 1 Tbsp TJ’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette) ~ 1 point+
10 Salt and Pepper PopChips! (ONLY 1 Point+, if you have 11, it jumps to 2)
Sweet Peppers for color
I was completely STUFFED after all of this and totally want to have it all over again. But, The Husband asked to have it for his lunch tomorrow so I guess I had to share….lol.
My co-workers all decided today was an afternoon coffee type of day. Not being one to miss out and needing a little dairy in my day, I had my 2nd favorite type of drink.
No fancy name for this one though….Just a tall nonfat decaf latte with caramel drizzle on top (2 points+)
I LOVE the caramel drizzled on top of the foam because it makes it like a marshmallow!
I kept my promise tonight when I got come and I DID YOGA!!! I did the 20 Minute FREE Gentle Hatha Yoga from YogaDownload.com. I honestly really needed it to clear my head and help me let go of the stress in my day.
Dinner tonight was simple, delicious and fast! I didn’t let the rain stop me from grilling. I honestly think if we lived in snow, I’d totally dig out the grill just to not have another dish to wash
I grilled up some lean boneless pork ribs in Gayle’s Sweet n Sassy Apple Cider Smoked BBQ Sauce. (3 oz = 3 points+)
As much as I LOVE my real Potatoes Au Gratin, I CRAVE the kind you get in a box.
I LOVE that Trader Joe’s makes a mix that I can recognize all the ingredients.
3 points+ for 1/6th when prepared with FF milk and butter.
MMMMMM…..LOVE!!! Salty, creamy, cheesy, good!
Simple side #2 ~ Green Giant Steamers.
Just like it should be ~ ONLY Green Beans.
Can you believe The Husband and I split the entire package? After steaming I topped with 1 Tbsp Whipped butter, garlic salt and freshly ground black pepper (1 point+)
7 Points+ for all of this and it was so easy to make.
I ended the night with 1 Biscoff Cookie….then a Tbsp of my Biscoff Spread (3 points+)

Would you pick Chips or Cookies??
I am definitely a salty, crunchy person and would pick chips any day over cookies. However, that being said, put a Biscoff Cookie up there and I’d probably take the cookie
Just one day left ~ Night all!
