Happy Sunday all! I have had such a productive and fun weekend. The Husband was off to work on Saturday morning and I totally took advantage of the down time. I didn’t realize how much I missed spending half a day in the kitchen cooking until yesterday. I started off originally just making Brown Sugar Banana Nut Mini Muffins and then, it just kept going…..cookies, crackers, beans, lunches, dinner LOL. It’s a good thing we had events planned all weekend so I could drop it all off!
I brought the mini muffins to my meeting and the 1 points+ Parmesan Almond Crisps.
Coffee, 1 crisp, 3 brown sugar banana nut mini muffins, strawberries (6 points+)
My Leader ended up putting her spin on my Jicama Hash browns after deciding have Jicama straight up was too much. I totally cannot wait to try her version with potatoes too!
On our way back from the meeting, I told The Husband we should have sushi today. HIs reply since he isn’t a fan at all…..only if we can trade in dinner and have big grilled steaks tonight.
Ummmm, OK ~ I can totally do that!
After doing a few things around the house, we were off to Yokoso Sushi.
Miso Soup (2 points+)
Japanese Miso Salad with the BEST Miso Dressing that I NEED to re-create (3 points+)
I could eat this a couple of times a week and NEVER get tired of it. It might be a good thing this place isn’t closer.
TUNA STEAK ~ Spicy Crab Meat Topped with Ahi, Avocado, Green Onions, Tobiko SRIRACHA and special sauce made extra spicy for me = LOVE!!
I estimated this based off a Spicy Tuna Roll at 1 points+ a piece. (8 points+)
Mid afternoon I snacked on 2 Meyer Lemon Cookies that I made up just so I could share them with some of our friends yesterday and today. (2 points+)
2 oz Tri Tip ~ Grilled to perfection by The Husband (2 points+)
Slow Cooker Chipotle Beer Baked Beans that I cooked up just so I can them at lunch. I think I am going to make Baked Bean Nachos or Sweet Potato Baked Bean Nachos with them. I had a 1/4 cup for 2 points+.
BBQ-Licious! (Yup, it’s totally a word ) (2 points+ for the corn)
