Hi all! How was your weekend? Our weekend has been so fun as I lost 1.8 lbs this week and we had our last Christmas celebration with my family yesterday. It was great to see my brother and sister plus the rest of the family as we all haven’t been together since they moved away. I also can finally share with you all one of the fun gifts we all got to cook together.
But first – Breakfast! Today we had my favorite 1 Point real deal Bacon from Trader Joe’s and eggs (3 SP for all of this).This means, I totally had room for my 2 Smartpoint tall nonfat cappuccino with caramel drizzle on the foam.For lunch, I had more zero point Navy Bean and Ham Soup plus 1/2 serving goldfish (2 sp).Why the Goldfish? Because The Husband has finally convinced me it’s delicious to have crunchy fish swimming in your soup. I totally fished out each cheesy bite first lol.I scored an awesome deal on Instant Pots after Thanksgiving and have been anxiously awaiting giving them to my family so we could all cook and create recipes together.
I have always wanted a Pressure Cooker but they intimidated me. Even reading the instructions today made me nervous.
But, it’s actually not hard at all….I think 🙂 I’ve only successfully tried the water test lol.There are so many settings.I highly recommend downloading the app – it has a great set up checklist, video and 700+ recipes.
Here is everything you get in the box and I am heading to Target tomorrow to buy this stand to store it on. (It’s $30 and currently 10% off – in the Target app or using the promo code HOME).If you all have a favorite recipe, please share away as you know I never get enough recipes lol.
This afternoon, I grabbed a coffee, Dove Dark Chocolate and dove into my new cookbook and magazines. (2 sp).I used our leftover bacon to make BLTAs for dinner tonight. I had mine open faced as I’d much rather have extra avocado over bread. (7 sp).
Served up with a simple salad topped with olive oil and blood orange balsamic. (1 sp)17 Daily WWFreestyle Smartpoints, 8K steps….I am planning a movie snack later of apples with mixed nuts & 4 rollover points!
