Happy Wednesday all! How was your day? My day involved the best day ever followed up with the best Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup I’ve ever made.
I kept my breakfast at zero points to save my points for later. 2 scrambled eggs with 1/2 an orange.I also made sure I fit in a 35 minute jog/walk to burn a few more calories. This was the first time adding in jogging intervals in forever and it was so hard.
My post workout reward – getting my free Birthday cappuccino at Peet’s coffee (2 sp).My “work day” involved an off site team building event with lunch and the rest of the day off – so flipping awesome.
We went to Beat The Room and competed against each other to solve the puzzle in 60 minutes. I have never been to an escape room before and I cannot wait to go back.
We lost to the other team but solved our puzzle with 47 seconds to spare.I totally joked that my motivation was to escape for food – our team lunch at Rock & Brews!There was so much food but I feel proud of how I handled it. I had a small appetizer plate and picked only one of the items I wanted.
In addition to a jalapeno popper and onion ring, I had one each of these and counted it all as 10 sp.For my lunch, I had the cobb salad sans the stinky cheese and the dressing on the side. This salad was so huge, I couldn’t finish it (7 sp).I spent the afternoon doing a bit of shopping, getting my car washed and picking up everything I needed to make Homemade Chicken Soup for The Husband who has a cold.
Guess what? I researched ideas and braved making this recipe up taking my favorite things in chicken noodle soup and putting them in my Instant Pot. It might just be the best soup I’ve ever made. The chicken is infused with this herby goodness like rotisserie chicken and literally falls of the bone. The broth is so rich that it seems like you spent all day, not 1 hour making it.The best part – he totally loved it and I think it’s helping him feel better too.Recipe coming up soon.
