Happy Sunday all! I think today we officially shopped until we dropped….literally. The Husband gets MAJOR kudos for spending like 8 hours shopping with me (and him too!) LOL. I do have to say though, I got everything I needed to get and he is still undecided
I am kinda proud I resisted taking pictures to show you all since I’m working on not taking like 100+ pics a day….but, leave a comment below if you wanna see because you know that justifies it
I didn’t get a Wii, but, I DID EYE them a few times…..Do any of you know if you can play DVD’s in your Wii? I am all about 2 in 1 appliances that take up less space.
Before we headed out, I had a Turkey Meatloaf Muffin and it was AWESOME! It’s totally normal to have meatloaf in the morning ~ it’s the “other” sausage” (3 points+)
I actually cut it up and made mini meatloaf sandwiches on one slice of of Trader Joe’s FF Multi-Grain Bread topped with ICBINB Olive Oil Spray (1 points+)
How AWESOME is the Starbuck’s guy?! SEE, they know a Coconut Dirty Latte is a good thing I tried it with 1/2 a pump of mocha today since I felt like 1 pump of mocha and 1 pump of coconut was too sweet. It was……ready????
MMMMM, good! Yup, I am totally a dork like that (4 points+)
I told The Husband he could pick ANYWHERE he wanted for lunch and I would buy since he was being a super trooper. He picked Mary’s Pizza shack which actually made me quite happy.
He picked their Mini Meatloaf Sliders for an appetizer….OMG! I will be re-creating these this week (maybe tomorrow!) I am pretty sure I made sounds eating these lol.
Pizza dough buns + homemade meatballs + homemade red sauce + CHEESE! (4 points+)
I LOVE their salads and often get them for meals. However, I knew I wanted their Pizza and Salad Lunch combo and went for it.
Side Salad with 1 Tbsp ranch, fork dipped (4 points+)
CHEESY MUSHROOM PIZZA…It is my FAVORITE pizza at Mary’s. (6 points+)
Even though I packed snacks to take with me shopping, I didn’t NEED any. I am really proud that I RESISTED frozen yogurt after lunch because it was right next door. I was full and would’ve been eating it, well, because I LOVE froyo! Gold Star!
I LOVE making HUGE salads for dinner when they are packed with several types of crunchy, protein, NUTS, cheese and delicious dressing. Who says Chef Salads have to be boring?!
* 2 cups Organic Mixed Greens
* VEGGIE CRUNCH = Organic snap peas, carrots, yellow bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, green onions
* 1 ounce each lean Brown Sugar Ham and Honey Turkey (2 points+)
* 1 slice Jarlsberg Lite Swiss Cheese (1 points+)
* NUTTY CRUNCH = 1 1/2 Tbsp Chickpeas, 1 Tbsp Sunflower Seeds, 1 Tbsp Ranch Sliced Almonds (2 points+)
* POWER UP YOUR PROTIEN ~ 1 hard boiled egg (2 points+)
If you all have trouble peeling hard boiled eggs, you NEED to follow these steps for the Perfectly Hard Boiled Egg ~ works EVERY TIME!
Topped with 2 Tbsps Newman’s Light Lime Vinaigrette. My entire salad was 9 points+)
I “peeled” my own orange using one of my awesome readers tips….The Husband ate half though (I usually have him peel two so I get one…guess I should’ve made two!)
