Happy Tuesday all! Work was insane today, but, I have to say, I had the BEST day ~ Seriously ~ Farmer’s Markets + Annie The Baker Cookies + Sushi + BAVARIAN PRETZEL CROSSAINTS ~ complete me! But, more on that in a minute….
I LOVE that it’s only 1 point per serving with a decent sugar content.
Nothing artificial …sweetened with fruit 😉
On top of an Oro Wheat Double Fiber Muffin with 1 Tbsp Whipped Butter! (5 pts)
I added 2 1/2 cups of watermelon for good measure (2 pts)
Mid morning snackage ~ a 2% Strawberry FAGE which I probably could’ve made myself with that jam LOL….sometimes it’s just fun to scoop though (3 pts)
Lunch was AWESOME on so many levels! I scored so many good things at the Farmer’s Market and came back to have a Spicy Brown Rice Hawaiian Roll (Tuna, cucumber, AVOCADO, brown rice, sesame seeds, tobiko). I think it could’ve been spicer LOL….I ate 9 pieces (5 pts).
One of my FAVORITE reasons for going to the Napa Farmer’s Market is because Annie The Baker is there! She honestly makes the BEST COOKIES I’ve ever had in my life!
Rainbow Sprinkles Sugar Cookie ~ My FAVORITE & I don’t share it :D!
Doodle Snicker ~ I LOVE how she uses Turbinado Sugar.
She has a NEW cookie out made with Guittard Cocoa Dough plus Milk & Dark Chocolate Chips called Cocoa Loco. I promised my cookie sharing co-worker I’d wait to try it until she was in the office to share with me tomorrow…it was pretty hard to resist.
Chocolate Chunk ~ she gave me TWO since I told her I’d actually share with The Husband this time…I<3 her!
If I didn’t have SUSHI, I might’ve considered having this for lunch.
I refrained though and had 1/2 my Sugar Cookie saving the other half for dessert. (4 pts)
After rambling on about all our favorite things, Annie gave me a taste of her FAVORITE ~ A BAVARIAN PRETZEL CROSSAINT from October Feast!
Seriously, have you all ever heard of these?? They are a croissant rolled in the same dough as Bavarian Pretzels ~ freakin’ ingenius!!!
Obviously, give me samples and I’ll buy whatever is being sold ;) It was LOVE at first bite!
I restocked my Pumpkin Bolani Bread ~ sweet, spicy, doughy, totally low-cal/low-point <3!
Some of the BIGGEST Organic Beets & Organic Corn I’ve ever seen.
4 bags of Organic Greens for $5!
5 lbs for $5 ~ 2 types of nectarines, plums & peaches!
I pretty much spent the afternoon DREAMING about this sandwich and smelling the Bavarian Pretzel Bread. Simple sandwich a la Annie’s recommendation other than I left my plain and untoasted ~ 2 oz Honey Ham Plus 2% Swiss! (9 point estimate)
I cannot even tell you all how good this bread is! It’s soft, chewy and slightly crispy – you get hints of the buttery croissant, yet it tastes just like a Bavarian Pretzel ~ AMAZING!
I had a simple salad on the side topped with Newman’s Light Lime Vinaigrette!
LOVE!!!! I almost didn’t want to share the other one with The Husband ~ it was THAT good 😀
I should do some “work” since my todo list is HUGE, but I really think my latest book ~ “The Undomestic Goddess” is calling my name. I LOVE Sophia Kinsella’s books.
