Happy Christmas Eve all! This morning I totally felt like a little kid. The Husband asked me to go with him to work, I packed up my
books magazines, a snack pack and headed out the door.
Breakfast was quick and not too exciting, but, it hit the spot. I promise once I get through this week, my eating will stop being so random
Morning Star Breakfast Patty for some PROTEIN POWER (2 points+)
Nanner = ZERO points+!
Bribe #1 for going out in the freezing cold ~ Starbuck’s! I am not sure why I didn’t get a HOT latte…..Venti Iced Dirty Latte (fat free, decaf latte with 1 pump mocha) (4 points+)
The REAL reason he got me to go out and spend all morning in the freezing 50 degree weather (yes, it’s COLD for California), was the promise of LUNCH at The Joy of Eating.
I totally wanted soup, but, they were out so I subbed my fries for this salad topped with red wine vinegar (0 points+)
I ALWAYS say I will try something new there, but, really all I want every time is THIS BLTA! (18 point+ estimate on the high side)
Delicious ~ I think the secret to their AMAZING sandwiches is their homemade sweet bread.
After delivering more presents to our friends, I decided I STILL wanted THAT soup. I whipped up a big batch of my Super Easy Homemade Fresh Tomato Basil Soup.
Trader Joe’s Social Snackers and 1 oz LF Sharp Cheddar Cheese (4 points+)
The thing I LOVE most about this soup is that its 2 POINTS+ for 1 1/2 cups AWESOME! It’s chunky, filling and packed with flavor. You can find the soup recipe HERE.
It’s PJ, present and MOVIE time!!! I am off to go shake my boxes and find the ONE I want to open tonight
** Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays everyone! **
