I was so ready to get back to simple eating again today. It has been fun sampling all the potential places for our party but all the richness has my body wondering what I am doing to it 🙂
Friday felt like the LONGEST day of my life, like I was stuck in a time warp or something. Maybe I was all too excited for our weekend of nothingness to start. I am so glad we have nothing on the calendar this weekend since we do every other weekend until our cruise!
I decided to try the Starbuck’s Italian Roast VIA ~ Iced! I boiled water and mixed it all let letting it cool while I got ready. Add ice with a splash of milk & tadah!!!!
Perfection! No floaters today – yeah!
Simple Breakfast ~ Breakfast started off with a CranBran VitaTopp!
Then, crumbled over 1 c Trader Joe’s 0% Greek yogurt with cinnamon and CIDER SAUCE!
Mid morning while we were negotiating and trying to decide on where to host our holiday party, I snacked on some Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Crisps. Moments of stress require crunched, right?! 😀
Lunch was simple and FANTASTIC! I started off with Fizzy Water!
Basically delicious sandwich ~ TJ’s FF Multi-Grain Bread, 99% FF ham, turkey, 2% swiss and sweet/spicy mustard.
Salt and Pepper Pop Chips. This is only 1/2 a serving ~ LOVE this flavor!
Red Pepper Crunch!
For dessert I had some Red Holiday Grapes. Do you all have these near you? They are the BIGGEST seedless grapes ever made. Think Red Globe without seeds. So sweet crunchy and delicious.
Do you all remember when I tried to show you the rainbow this week but it was too dark to see the colors? This is the vineyard it was over ~ aren’t the colors beautiful?
Then, since I was hanging out in traffic, I decided to snap a few more shots to show you all some of things I see when I drive home. Not such a bad highway to commute on each day, huh?
I didn’t feel like cooking really so we went with simple for dinner dinner. Some fresh organic green beans seasoned with garlic salt, pepper and a kiss of organic butter.
Annie’s Shells and cheddar!
Low-Fat Spicy Chicken Sausage with Poblano’s & Cheese (130 cal, 4.5 g fat) – so GOOD!
Especially when dipped in Gayle’s Sweet & Sassy Honey BBQ Sauce.
For dessert I stole a few of The Husband’s candy corns. I was intrigued by a chocolate covered candy corn. Um, it was weird ~ I think they are better just the way they are 🙂
The Husband picked out the movie last night called The Poker Club. I honestly thought it was going to be al about poker, but, it wasn’t. It turned out to be a murder mystery suspense type of movie. The acting was sorta cheesy but I LOVED the plot ~ it was full of suspense and had a great twist in the end.
