I am glad you all are having fun with The Perfect Night In Giveaway! I LOVE all the things you plan on using that Target Gift Card for ~ they make me want to go SHOPPING 😀 Friday was such a fun day ~ it included some good and not so good eats, but, a lot of fun with my co-worker and The Husband.
I have to say I was pretty proud of myself to the new egg “secret ingredient” mix in idea I had for breakfast.
1/3 c Egg Beaters
1/2 Tbsp Spicy Artichoke Jalepeno Dip (aka Secret Ingredient)
Seal Salt, Pepper
Big Drops of Sriracha
All cooked for 1 minute in a dish sprayed with nonstick spray in the microwave.
SO GOOD~ It was spicy with a cheesy artichoke flavor. (1.5 points)
I had a side of TJ’s Lean Turkey Bacon that I may or may not have drizzled with a little Agave Nectar to make it salty/sweet (2.5 points).
Plus a 1 point crunchy nectarine for dessert.
I was starving and this high protein combo totally hit the spot for 5 pts!
To celebrate FRIDAY, I had some wine and cheese for my 2 point snack 😀
I had planned on having a Bagel Thin Sandwich (you all knew it had to happen, right?!) however, my co-worker and I needed a seriously girl chat session for lunch. So, we headed out for SPICY, CRUNCHY Thai Food at Thai Kitchen!
I started off with their soup with a BIG Dallop of Chili Sauce in the middle. I LOVED that it was so hot it made my lips hot too.
For my main dish I ordered Spicy Broccoli Chicken. This is one of my FAVORITE things to get because the broccoli is crunch, they use REAL white meat chicken and it’s only 2 POINTS PER CUP!
They cook it up with jalapeños but that doesn’t stop me from dowsing it in MORE spicy chili sauce. HOT, HOT, HOT!
Plus a cup of Brown Rice on the side (4 pts)
We also had a little noodli-ness on the side with some Pad Thai. I did manage to down a bit of this. Spicy Pad Thai is so high in points ~ I think it’s the rice noodles, peanuts and peanut sauce. I estimated 6 points for my 2/3 c serving.
I LOVE late lunches because the afternoon flies by! The Husband and I had plans to hit up his FAVORITE local Indian Casino to pick up some Collector Casino Chips. They only made 2,500 of these Tiger Chips.
Have I ever told you all he LOVES collecting the $1 chips from every casino we visit? Whenever we go on vacation, it usually includes a mission to get some $1 chips. It’s so cool because I can give him a $1 chip and he gets excited like a little kid in a candy shop 😀 He is SO easy to please!
P.S. We both totally scored on the slot machines ~ I won $74 on a penny machine called Hot Shots ~ LOVE it!
We have had a gift card for Chili’s Bar & Grill for the longest time so we decided a FREE dinner is a good thing…..or maybe not.
I ordered their $9.99 Combo Special where you get an appetizer or dessert with your choice of items. I really just wanted a salad, but, The Husband wanted the appetizer so it worked.
He picked bottomless chips and salsa. Funky salsa ~ it tasted like enchilada sauce, but, it still didn’t stop me from having my 12 chips counted out for (3 pts)
He of course, got his boneless chicken wing fix too. These look awesome, but, there is a too much vinegar. I tried one for 2 pts and decided they were not worth it.
I was SO Excited for my Salad ~ A Small Asian Chicken Salad ~ doesn’t the description sound good?
“Napa cabbage, crispy wontons, edamame, green onions, cilantro, sesame seeds, Asian vinaigrette and a creamy peanut drizzle. With your choice of grilled chicken, salmon or steak.”
Ok ~ so I can handle that they had no napa cabbage but they should tell you because romaine gets totally soggy when it sits in an asian salad.
But, then, I stirred it up and UGH ~ It was all MOLDY everywhere!!!
Obviously I couldn’t even eat that and when I asked the waitress if they would use the same lettuce for the other salads she said yes ~ all their salads kinda look like this tonight ~ NICE!!! Why don’t they tell people this?! 🙁
I picked their Smokey Chicken Tacos instead and thought you can’t go wrong with that, right?
“Smoked Chicken with poblanos, caramelized onions and a spicy & smoky chipotle sauce. Topped with Cotija cheese and cilantro sour cream.”
These were mini tacos which I thought were cute. But, they were totally just weird ~ They tasted like BBQ chicken tacos, but, not in a good way ~ they were sweet and ketchup like without any smokey chipolte flavor. The Husband who eats like EVERYTHING couldn’t even get past one bite. I had half a taco and pretty much gave up at this point. Too bad because they looked& sounded so good.
It’s pretty rare that I give a not so bueno review, but, seriously, their food wasn’t good at all. I am glad it was FREE and all, but, I’d rather pay for food and have it be good. There are too few calories to eat in a day to waste them on things that don’t make your mouth happy 😀
Two more days to enter to WIN THE PERFECT NIGHT IN!!!!
Have an awesome Saturday all ~ Catch you all later!
