Happy Friday Eve all!!! I owe a special thanks to Ada and Jessie for helping me to understand the meaning of the name of TJ’s new Guacamole ~ Avocado’s Number. Did you all know it is a spin of off the Avogadro constant? “Perrin originally proposed the name “Avogadro’s number” (N) to refer to the number of molecules in one gram-molecule of oxygen (exactly 32 grams of oxygen, according to the definitions of the period), and this term is still widely used, especially in introductory works. ”
WOW ~ seriously I think the person who named their guacamole is too smart to be making guacamole….And here I thought they just left the #1 off :D Thanks ladies, I am soooo going to watch for the next person at TJ’s that buys that guacamole so I can tell them what it means! 😉
Breakfast was a FAST 3 point Egg White Which. I cooked 1/3 c liquid egg whites in the microwave for 1 minute and toasted up 2 slices of TJ’s FF Multi-Grain Bread sprayed with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Spray.
Fruitiness ~ Banana “Chips” and cuties (2 pts)
As I was enjoying some AMAZING Starbuck’s Decaf Verona, I caved to a little Holiday Candy. I typically avoid any and all holiday candy that I can get any time of year. I do not NEED to buy a chocolate bunny because I can get ChocoLOVE anytime of year. However, Robin Eggs….they come once a year. I had a 4 point serving.
Plus 2 of these Lemon Covered Blueberry Lemon Shortcake Cookies which I probably NEVER need to eat again because they are
like crack totally addicting.
Janetha reminded me that today was NATIONAL SOUR DOUGH BREAD day so I HAD to have a slice of TJ’s Whole Wheat Sour Dough Bread, topped with some AVOCADO’s Number, sea salt & pepper.
I sliced my bread in half and stuffed it with some Muenster plus 1 1/2 oz each of honey ham and turkey (8 pts) YUM!
Crunchy peppers on the side that all of my co-workers seemed to think I was weird for eating them straight up like this. I don’t eat the stems or seeds ~ they are weird for not eating them – they are so sweet, crispy and crunchy! 🙂
We officially signed our contract today to get Central Heat & Air installed in our house ~ OMG – I am SOOOO HAPPY!!! Living in our 1940’s house that we are restoring has been awful in the million degree summer heat. I can’t wait!
After signing our life away, we headed over to help our friends put the finishing touches on their new house. On the way over I snacked on some TJ’s Lite Kettle Korn (2 pts). I was nice and actually shared with The Husband.
After, we all headed over to Chipolte! Chipolte scared me because their points are high for everything and their portions are HUGE. However, if you check out CHIPOLTE FAN BEFORE you can, you can make sure you create something that fits into your points budget. I LOVE how you can add what you are ordering to see how it impacts the nutritionals.
I made a FANTASTIC Burrito Bowl Sans Beans and Rice (saves a TON of points!)
Fajita Vegetables (Peppers and Onions)
A small sprinkle of cheese ~ I told them must a pinch LOL
GUACAMOLE because it’s totally worth ALL the points to me and who can ever get enough Guacaliciousness in their life 🙂
This salad game in at 10 points (not too shabby because it tasted like more). You can save 3 points by skipping the guacamole, but why would you???
