Happy Wednesday all! I am excited the week is half over and we are that much closer to Thanksgiving week. I may also be excited that it’s Survivor Night too.
I kicked off my day with a tasty 1 Smartpoint Ham & Egg scramble with 1/2 an orange.Plus a tall nonfat cappuccino with caramel on top (2 sp). I figured I saved points on breakfast so…..lol.4 hours later and 2 hours before lunch, I grabbed a snack so I would not be starving.
Trader Joe’s Lite Cheddar Stick plus pomegranate seeds (2 sp).I promise today is the last of my Kale, Butternut Squash & Sausage Soup.
I shared some with my friend and froze the rest for another day when I need a grab and go lunch.
Served up with brown sugar banana bread.
10 Smartpoints.Late afternoon I snacked on a persimmon.
Tonight’s dinner was so good and totally made up with what I had on hand when The Husband said he was craving pasta.
Here is what’s in my Goulash Pasta.The Sauce:
- 1 diced onion
- 1 diced bell pepper
- 2 cups sliced baby portabella mushrooms
- 3 garlic cloves minced
- 1 lb 93% lean ground beef
- Trader Joe’s Bolgonese Pomodoro Sauce
- 2 Tbsp tomato paste
- 1/2 cup Trader Joe’s sun dried tomatoes
- Dashes of salt, pepper and crushed red pepper flakes
- 2 oz shredded fresh parmesan cheese
All cooked up and tosses with 16 oz cooked large elbow pasta.
I may have gone a little crazy making 14+ cups but it means no cooking tomorrow!
I love the sweet bite of the sun dried tomatoes, earthy mushrooms and hearty meat sauce with Al dente pasta. Topped with a little parmesan for a cheesy, salty bite.
Each cup is 6 Smartpoints and I had this X’s for a total of 2 cups.27 Daily WWFreestyle Smartpoints, 7K steps
