Happy Wednesday all! Can you all believe the week is already half over? I am not sure if it is because our days are action packed this time of year or because I am loving my new job, but, I love that there are only 2 days until our work holiday party and the weekend!
It was easy to get out of bed this morning because I knew there was a big box of Farm Fresh to You Organic produce waiting for us on the door step! This week’s box was totally packed full.
- Radicchio (I am totally giving this away!)
- A Huge Fennel Bulb (giving this away too!)
- Mixed Greens
- Baby Bok Choy
- Red Chard
And…..super cute mini red potatoes.
The Fruit included mandarins, pears, fuji apples and lemons. I continue to be impressed with all the boxes we have received ~ everything is 100% fresh, crisp and you can tell it was picked that morning.
Farm Fresh To You delivers “almost” everywhere in the US so if you sign up, do not forget to enter the code “6164” and my full name “Danica Pike” to save $10 off any box you choose.
After putting everything in the fridge, I hopped on the treadmill for a steady 30 minute jog to make sure I hit my 100% on AL today
I refueled with a Healthy Egg Roll (SF + 1 WPA) – 4 points+
Plus a persimmon from last week’s Farm Fresh To You box. These are seriously sweet, crunchy and totally refreshing. I am always sad when it’s all gone.
Lunch today took about 15 minutes to make and to eat lol. I decided to work on cleaning out our fridge a bit starting with chopping up the last of the peppers from our garden, mushrooms, 1/2 a sweet potato and 1/2 a red onion.
Toss in a pan with a little olive oil.
Plus the remainder of our Simple Roast Pork Loin, paprika, oregano, sea salt and pepper.
100% Simply Filling and 110% Delicious! The entire pan is only 8 points+ and totally satisfying.
I love how the salty pork worked well with earthy mushrooms and sweet potatoes in this hash. This is definitely going on my list to make again.
I love receiving fun mail and today’s package were these Mini Beakers from OXO that come in 2 oz, 1 oz, 1 Tablespoon and 1 teaspoon measurements.
I have to admit, I totally love that Be A Good Cookie Spatula too! 50% of the proceeds for the Be A Good Cookie Spatula will be donated to the Cookies for Kids with Cancer Campaign.
I am participating this year in the OXO Good Cookie Bake a Difference Campaign to help raise money for Kids with Cancer by whipping up some delicious cookie recipes that will help their “bake sale”.
I am finally back in the mood for salads again and couldn’t wait to dive into tonight’s dinner. We made up huge @$$ Taco Salads that were amazing.
The Base ~ lettuce from our farm box, red cabbage, carrots, tomatoes and Trader Joe’s Fire Roasted Corn.
The Middle ~ 1/2 cup Turkey Taco Meat, 1 oz reduced fat cheddar cheese and a little guacamole.
The Toppers a la The Husband ~ Hot Sauce and drum roll please…..a couple of Chili Cheese Fritos because he said I always put crunch on my salads and didn’t have any. My Clown ~ I love him! (SF + 2 WPA) – 8 points+.
