Happy Friday all! For those of you who said you LOVED salads over soups in yesterday’s post, then, you definitely have to check out this salad that TJ of TJ’s Test Kitchen made for us today ~ it was HUGE, delicious and totally low in points+
I actually started dreaming about lunch before I even dug into breakfast today. Don’t get my wrong, I LOVE my 5 points+ Egg-Wiches, but, I also LOVE when friends cook delicious food for me too
Berries ~ I can’t wait for the REAL berry season to begin…these were just ok.
5 minute, 5 points+ breakfast.
Last week TJ asked me if I wanted to come over for lunch and she would make it all….Everything she makes is delicious and points+ friendly so it didn’t take me long to say YES!
When I arrived, we were both HUNGRY!! I LOVE her hungry magnet ~ My Hungry is in my pantry
She made up her Infamous Cream Cheese Won Ton’s for us using these extra thin wrappers ~ 10 of these for only 3 points+!
Eh, we were too busy chatting to count ~ 19, 20 – it’s all the same
This is the BEST Sweet Chili Sauce you will ever find!!! It honestly makes these Won Tons taste phenomenal and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE dipping pot stickers in it over any other sauce.
1 Points+ per Tbsp.
Seeing an entire plate of Cream Cheese Won Tons made me happy especially when I knew I could eat half of them!
I LOVE all of her bowls and I cannot resist taking pictures of them whenever I come over. Seriously ~ these bowls make me WANT to eat salad
Eaten with her fancy forks
Several of you have asked me if there is a dressing close to my FAVORITE Dressing in the world ~ Trader Joe’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette. I have wondered if this Litehouse Mild Thai Peanut makes the Trader Joe’s version.
Decent ingredients, but, they are different from the TJ’s version.
I am liking the stats ~ 2 Tbsp for ONLY 1 Points+ (save a point+ over the TJ’s brand)
While she worked on the won tons, I assembled our salads….She made my part easy because everything was ready to go.

I actually poured on some of the Sweet Chili Sauce too …This salad kept me full ALL afternoon!
Dessert! I really wanted to take all her pineapple home ~ it was so sweet. Thanks for an awesome lunch TJ ~ everything was amazing, just like you !!
I actually got pretty lucky today not having to cook lunch or dinner. When The Husband got home he said he wanted to go to Chipotle and a movie.
I mixed up my usual order for 3 Crunchy Chicken Tacos!
Each taco came up to 4 points+ when I calculated everything over at Chipotle Fan.
* 3 Crunchy Corn Taco Shells
* Pico De Gallo
* Corn Salsa
* 1/2 order of cheese
We finally saw PAUL tonight. It is actually pretty hilarious ~ The Husband LOVES just about every Seth Rogen movie out there. See it if you haven’t already.
Dessert ~ A tall nonfat decaf latte with caramel drizzle (3 points+)
What is one FUN thing you are doing this weekend?
I think we are heading out to find the rest of our living room furniture and go to California Pizza Kitchen! I am hoping to work a bit on the new Danica’s Daily…..I can’t wait to show you all it ~ it’s looks awesome and the recipe organizer rocks!
