Happy Sunday all! Do you all have sayings at your house for what you call “certain foods”? We do around here because The Husband does not like
I woke up this morning craving Flapjacks! Not just any ole Flap Jacks, but, my absolute FAVORITE box mix around ~ Kodiak Cakes.
That actually says a lot, because, I am sort of a “snob” when it comes to my flap jacks. It is SO EASY to make them from scratch & well everything tastes better when it’s homemade…..or almost everything
I had TWO flapjacks topped with 1 tsp whipped butter & 1 Tbsp Pure Maple Syrup (6 points+).
Plus a “Maple” drizzled Morning Star Veggie sausage for staying power (2 points+)
One of my BIGGEST tips for SUCCESS is that if you are going to bake something irresistible like Sea Salted Almond Chocolate Covered Toffee, do it early in the morning!
If you are anything like me, it does NOT sound good in the morning. Ask me in the afternoon & that is another story
If you all want me to post the recipe, just let me know.
Since I spent the weekend stocking up our fridge, lunch only took minutes to “make”. It’s pretty much the same thing I had yesterday too ~ it’s really THAT good
Grilled Trader Joe’s Sweet Maple Apple Chicken Sausage (3 points+).
More Harvest Grain Salad (4 points+)
And Healthy Potato Salad (3 points+)
Veggie tray veggies dipped in Trader Joe’s Caramelized Onion Dip (1 points+)
Snack time served with Iced Coffee!
Whenever I get my hands on these New Hong Kong Won Tons, I can’t wait to find new ways to use them all up.
As I was pondering ideas for won ton ravioli’s I saw several ideas only using the won ton wrappers for Lasagna.
I fell IN LOVE with the idea of having little individual, portion controlled Lasagna Cups since I have a thing for “all things MINI”
You could take the easy route or the homemade route for making these.
All you need is a little cheese……(I may or may not have used 3 types of cheese)
Plus more cheese (I loaded mine with 5 types of veggies & fresh herbs!)
Jarred or homemade sauce…
Then, you just layer it up all over again……
Finishing with cheese on top!
Pop them in the oven and dinner is ready in 25 minutes (fi you can wait that long).
I still have to calculate the stats, but, I am positive that each cup is 4 points+ or less…….
