Happy Hump Day all!! We arrived home on Sunday night and I’ve spent the better part of this week getting settled back into our routine. You know ~ priorities ~ unpack all the fun things we bought ( & shipped home!), laundry, check out recipes, restock our food, Weight Watchers for the new updates!….oh and work has been in there too LOL.
Yesterday marked Day 1 of getting back on track and I am actually “excited” to get back to journaling. I’ve missed talking FOOD with you all.
The Husband gets MAJOR kudos because he actually went out and put gas in my car this morning since I was running late. Not only that…..he came back with this!!! LOVE!
My new FAVORITE low points+ drink ~ It tastes just like chocolate milk!
Venti Iced Coffee with 1 pump Mocha and a splash of FF 1/2 & 1/2 (1 points+)
Breakfast part 2 was even BETTER! Remember these VEGETARIAN Cheesy Sausage Breakfast Burritos?!
It honestly tastes just like a Sausage Egg McMuffin and all for 6 points+!
I also brought back another favorite for lunch ~ Ak Mak Crackers!!
My “Chickpea” friend over at the Broccoli Hut introduced these to me a few years ago and I personally think they are the BEST cracker out there.
I am usually someone who shy’s away from crackers because they rarely fill me up and I ALWAYS want more than a serving.
But, with AkMak Crackers ~ you get FIVE BIG crackers for only 3 points+.
As in crackers the size of the entire box! Top with a creamy Laughing Cow wedge for 1 points+ (and apricot jam if you have it too!)
I’ve missed my simple salads topped with 2 Tbsp’s of Trader Joe’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette (4 points+).
I also unthawed some of the Butternut Squash Soup I cooked the morning we left and froze just so I could have it when we got back. (4 points+)
Back to the Container Club
I ended up saving my cuties for snack with a Trader Joe’s Lite String Cheese (1 points+)
The Husband had oral surgery on his mouth to put the temporary crown on so for the next week we are both on a “soft foods” diet. I honestly think I bought everything for him that is soft ~ refried beans, mashed potatoes, mac n cheese, ice cream, smoothie stuff, jello, pudding, applesauce, yogurt…..Think I missed anything??? lol…
Then, I made sure we had a big batch of Crockpot Split Pea Soup to come home to. (7 points+).
Last chance to send some Holiday Cheer and Win a Super FUN Cereal Dispenser. The winner is drawn tomorrow night.
- Total Daily Points+ used ~ 27
- Total Activity Points earned ~ 3 for walking 3 miles to/from the train!
I will be catching up on all your emails, comments, etc. hopefully by the end of this weekend. For now, I am off to finish Baking these cookies for our Silent Auction tomorrow.
