Happy Easter All! Today I made sure I used up some of our Easter Eggs by whipping up Deviled Eggs and a Healthier Potato Salad. You know your weekend is Eggsellent (you know I had to use that at least once!) when The Husband treats you to a FREE Starbuck’s TWICE in one weekend 😀
I indulged a little this morning with a Grande FF Chai Tea Latte (4 pts).
I figured I’d use up some of hard boiled eggs and whipped up a quick snack of Deviled Eggs for The Husband and I. I like using half mayo and half greek yogurt in recipes that call for mayo. You get all the flavor with less fat and more protein.
4 Hard Boiled Eggs, halved
1 Tbsp Low Fat Mayo
1 Tbsp Fat Free Greek Yogurt
1 tsp dijon mustard
Sea salt & Black Pepper to Taste
Simply half the eggs and remove the yolks. Combine the yolks with everything through the Black Pepper. Mix and “stuff” your egg shells. Sprinkle with paprika. 1 half = 1 pt.
After making our Easter Cupcake deliveries to The Husband’s family, I whipped up BLTA’s!
2 slices TJ’s FF Multi-Grain Bread
4 slices Center Cut Bacon
BIG tomato slices
Plus 1/2 an orange (The Husband stole 1/2 of mine even though he said he didn’t want an orange) :) My entire lunch came in at 6 points ~ AWESOME!
This afternoon I FINALLY mastered my Healthy Tiramisu Cupcakes!!! Homemade Espresso Soaked Vanilla Cake, creamy whipped middle INSIDE the cupcake and a deliciously light cream cheese frosting with dark chocolate shavings.
It really does look as good as it tastes (I ate the whole thing!)! I LOVE the “surprise”in the middle! RECIPE and STATS coming soon….believe it or not, they are EASY to make 🙂
I also finally played around with my Pot Sticker wrappers making some Butternut Squash Pot Stickers. More on these tomorrow with the recipe as I am having them for lunch.
We had The Husband’s Mom over for Easter dinner. I pulled out the Apple Wood Smoked Bacon Pork Loin I picked up at Sam’s Club. It’s so easy to make ~ simply wrap it in foil and bake for 20-30 minutes per pound.
4 oz = 4 points for a BACON pork Loin – YUM!
I made sure I got my 4 ounces too! It was really good – it’s sweet, smoky and full of BACON flavor. I LOVED the crunchy bacon top.
I used up more eggs and made my Healthier Potato Salad. 1/2 c = 2 pts.
Asparagus sprinkled with garlic salt, pepper and a little butter!
Off to relax before the week starts…The weekends totally NEED to be longer. 🙂
