Hi all! How was your weekend? I finally had the chance to get all caught up, settled in and back to my usual blogging today. I headed back to my Weight Watchers meeting on Saturday and I was ready to face the music. In my head, I thought my weigh in would be awful after 3 weeks off and our trip. But, it wasn’t bad at all – I was up 1.4 lbs. I am using this as motivation this week to make the scale go back down.
This morning we were up early to head to the Alameda Antique Fair. I love that even the iced cups at Starbucks have a holiday theme.
Grande iced nonfat latte with caramel on top (3 sp).At the fair, we split a bacon, egg & salsa burrito (4 sp).We walked the farmers market and grabbed salads at Jack’s Urban Eats for lunch. I did steal a few of his Urban Fries to go with my delicious Chinese chicken salad. (4 sp).This afternoon I cooked up a batch of Kale, Butternut and Sausage soup for lunches.
I also made a loaf of brown sugar banana bread (sans the nuts). I love this bread so much and it’s totally worth 7 sp for 1/16th.I decided to pick a recipe from my new WW Healthy Kitchen Chicken Cookbook for dinner tonight.
I modified the cover recipe to make this Chicken with Creamy Rosemary Mushroom Sauce.The recipe actually goes together in under 20 minutes
Start by “frying” your salt & pepper chicken in olive oil. Once it’s cooked through, set it aside.To the same pan, add mushrooms, 1 Tbsp diced rosemary and garlic.Cook until softened, then, pour 1/4 cup white wine. Cook 2-3 minutes longer.Remove from heat, stir in Greek yogurt and Dijon.Add chicken back to the pan.
Tadah! Winner, winner chicken dinner!I served ours over Chive Buttered Egg Noodles. Boil 6 oz egg noodles then toss with 1 Tbsp butter, chives/green onions, salt & pepper.Steamed green beans with garlic salt & pepper.My super fancy dinner was so good – 1 svg chicken (2 sp), 1 oz Chive butter noodles (4 sp), green beans.24 Daily WWFreestyle Smartpoints, 17K steps
