Happy TUESDAY, not Monday all! I LOVE it when my work weeks don’t begin with Monday. Thanks for all the comments on our “JUNGLE” ~ I am pretty excited to actually have our garden grow and cannot wait to harvest everything.
Speaking of….Have any of you ever “froze” your fresh herbs?
I know you can dry them or mix them up into pesto/ice cube freeze, but, have you ever just “froze” them? I am pondering this as an idea to try so I have sorta fresh herbs this winter if that makes sense lol.
This morning, breakfast happened in this order.
Coffee (not picture)…..stomach growling……
I told myself I had to wait to eat it so I could take a picture……
I couldn’t wait…..So, I snapped a picture and ate it……
While I cooked these Blueberry Kodiak Cakes topped with 1 tsp of whipped butter scattered all over and 1 Tbsp PURE Maple Syrup (7 points+)
Plus a Morning Star Veggie Sausage topped with maple syrup too! (2 points+)
This totally hit the spot and kept me full for 5 hours which was a good thing since I spent the morning waiting for The Husband to get his tooth pulled.
I feel AWFUL for him….They actually cracked his jack bone a little getting his tooth out. He had no choice ~ they had to pull it because a prior dentist did a bum root canal that didn’t need to be done and made parts of his tooth die.
I made him the BIGGEST MILK SHAKE ever but he wanted none….he ate nothing He just took the pack of frozen peas I got him for his face and laid down with the Ipad2 lol.
I waited for him to zonk out before I made lunch at 1 pm.
On a brighter note, I am pretty sure BBQ Pork Rib Salad might be my new favorite thing!
Especially when you add lots of crunch (tons of veggies plus toasted walnuts) and a little sweetness from dried cranberries.
* Leftover Salad from Last night
* 3 oz BBQ Pork Ribs, cut off the bone and measured (5 points+)
* 1 Tbsp dry roasted chopped walnuts (1 points+)
* 1 Tbsp dried cranberries (1 points+)
All topped with 2 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette (2 points+)
Today was such a busy day at work and taking care of The Husband. All you mom’s out there, I don’t know how you balance it all. I am completely impressed for sure lol.
Mid afternoon I snacked on a Mini Babybel light for some dairy (1 points+)
Plus a BIG Bowl of Fruit! Fruit is so good this time of year….I am pretty sure I eat more than I picture because I am snacking at I put it in the bowl.
I ate all of this and FINALLY got The Husband to eat 2 pieces that I cut into bite size pieces.
I told The Husband for dinner we could have anything he wanted. You see, I bought just about everything you can imagine so he would have choices.
* Pudding, Ice Cream, Apple Sauce, Mashed Potatoes, Ice Cream for Milk Shakes
* I boiled eggs to make deviled egg salad for protein
* Annie’s Organic Single Serving Mac n Cheese
He didn’t want any of it……you know what he wanted?!
Last nights dinner ~ chunky potato salad, ribs, beans……*sigh* I did mash some beans, cut up a rib into small pieces and…..
Did you all know ~ if you blend up potato salad, it may look sorta nasty but it tastes the same! He finally ate ~ mission accomplished!!
My dinner….1/2 cup Leftover Slow Cooker Baked Beans (4 points+)
Plus 1 Annie’s Single Serving Mac n Cheese ~ I LOVE It ~ what can I say?! (6 points+)
NEW AT FRIENDS FOR WEIGHT LOSS
Ok….so, I know this is funny to ask, but, seriously….What are some foods you all can think of that you can eat without having to chew?
He said no soups for now…maybe tomorrow he will want to try again.
Off to go tell The Husband it will be ok
