Happy Wednesday all! Thanks for sharing your ideas for what you love to add to your pasta salads on yesterday’s post. I am pretty sure the possibilities are endless and you can end up with a different result every single time.
Continuing on my trend to “stay cool”, I stopped at Starbuck’s on my way in today because it has been way too long since I’ve gotten “Dirty”.
Venti Iced Dirty Coconut Coffee
(Iced coffee with 1 pump coconut, 1 pump mocha and a splash of 1/2 and 1/2) ~ 2 points+.
I actually planned on having a big yogurt fruit bowl for breakfast, but, I never ended up getting a chance to actually sit down to eat breakfast this morning.
Instead, I grabbed my snacks and went with it ~ banana + Sargento RF Colby Cheese (2 points+)
The Husband had today off and asked me this morning if he could take me on a “date for lunch”. He totally had an ulterior motive.
I have been craving La Bou ever since we went there last month for a business lunch and have tried to go back a few times since without any luck.
He told me that the one condition of our date is that we finally go to La Bou so I will stop telling him about how much I NEED it in my life
I picked my two favorite things at the moment……hey, whatever works, right lol.
Half a House Salad that is made with butter lettuce,avocado, tomato, cucumber, Jarlsberg swiss cheese and sprouts. Topped with Creamy Dill Dressing ~ like ranch, but, better (4 points+)
Plus a cup of Spicy Thai Coconut Chicken Soup ~ it’s a little spicy with a delicious lime and coconut flavor without being over creamy. (4 points+)
Their bread is 1 points+ per slice. La Bou rocks for posting their nutrition facts online which totally makes me want to go here like every day to try everything.
I snacked on this fruit bowl I packed up this morning on my drive home so I didn’t eat everything in the house when I got home.
The Husband grilled up Trader Joe’s Sweet Apple Sausages to go with our leftover tortellini pasta salad for dinner. I started with half to see if I really needed it, but, then, I decided it was too good to not eat all of it. (3 points+ per link ~ deal!)
We both agreed the Tortellini Pasta Salad tasted even better today since everything absorbed that deliciously sweet & tangy homemade balsamic vinaigrette. (6 points+)
Off to catch up on this week’s Next Food Network Star and count the days down until vacation!
