Happy Friday Eve all! One more day until the weekend ~ 75 degrees of sunshine…..I can’t wait!
I woke up this morning feeling sicker than I have all week so I figured it MUST BE because I NEED a Cold Buster. So, I made a sorta lame call today ~ I went up to the original (Medium Size) thinking it would only add 2 additional points ~ nope ~ 8 points vs 4 for 24 oz vs 16 oz ~ boo! I guess I can feel good about the fact that I got in my 5 a day in a cup plus an antioxidant & immunity boost.
I was starving but managed to hold off for 3 hours for my mid morning snack ~ 1 slice TJ’s Sour Dough Wheat Bread with 1/2 Tbsp Cashew Butter (3 pts)
I brought a BIG salad today, but, I really wasn’t feeling it and I had to run to Trader Joe’s to pick up a few things for dinner. I couldn’t resist stopping at Whole foods for SOUP ~ it’s been awhile 😀
With Corny Corn Bread (3 pts per 1/2)! You have to have sweet corn bread with bean soups, dontcha think?
I crumbled my half on top of my “chili soup” and mixed it in ~ SOOOOO GOOD!
For dessert and for good measure, a little Dark Chocolate wiht ALMOND and SEA SALT ~ CHOCOLOVE! (2 pts because I put one square in my mouth as I broke off 3) 🙂
I had two of the COOLEST packages waiting for me when I got home. I was going through NUT BAR CRUNCHY ALMOND BUTTER WITHDRAWALS. I discovered this local almond butter last year at the Farmer’s Market and couldn’t wait any longer for the market to start to get more. I ordered up one jar for me and one for one of my FAVORITE friends in the world 🙂
THIS is why it’s so good ~ nothing but 100% home grown California Almonds!
The 2nd package you all will get to check out this weekend ~ It’s everything I need for my FRIDGE MAKEOVER. Get ready to see the BEFORE & AFTER’S of our Fridge and WIN a MAKEOVER YOURSELF!!! I can’t wait to do it and share in the fun!!!
OK ~ that was a lot of !!! because I really don’t feel all that energetic LOL. I was planning a new dinner tonight with some fun TJ’s products, but, I somehow forgot Bell Peppers when I was at Whole Foods (it might’ve been my A.D.D when I saw the SOUP!)
So my fancy Pepper Pasta turned into a modified version of my Mushroom Ravioli’s A La Kale!
I pulled out these funky dried Mushrooms from Trader Joe’s that I’ve had sitting in the pantry waiting for me to decide how to use them.
Lots of crazy mushrooms I’m sure I’ve never eaten.
BACON PROSCUITTO PERLINE PASTA
8 points for HALF the package is a pretty good deal for PASTA!
Plus more Shroooms!
I LOVE THIS RECIPE because the longest part is chopping/slicing all of the produce ~ it goes together in less than 20 minutes.
Cute little pasta “PURSES” filling with bacon. Ok, I have to say that I couldn’t taste bacon/prosciutto/a smoky flavor at all. They just tasted like herby ravioli’s that belong in pesto, but, I still really liked them.
Like I said ~ 1/2 a package of mushrooms, plus 1/2 a head of kale plus 1/2 a package of Perline Pasta = a lot of delicious eats for 9 points!
TODAY’S SCORE ~ An A- Thanks to Jamba Juice and 1/2 a head of Kale I am sure! I am over on my calories and am a total CARB addict LOL ~ good info to know so I can improve on it! 🙂
Hasta Manana ~ just one day!!!
