The weekend has totally flown by but I feel SO ACCOMPLISHED! We managed to go from 0% of our Christmas Shopping complete to 90%. We cleaned, did laundry, set up our tree, completed our Christmas Cards and mailed them along with our Christmas packages! Oh, and I think I may have relaxed a little too somewhere in there 🙂
I have totally been wanting to try out this super spicy Pepper Sauce we bought in Barbados. They gave out samples that you drank out of the cup, I used my finger and well, The Husband drank it. His face was so red I just knew it had to be THAT HOT and good.
I thought it was interesting that the first ingredient is mustard since it doesn’t really taste mustard like at all.
I used the sauce to whip up a FANTASTIC veggie scramble.
1/4 c chopped yellow bell pepper
1/4 c chopped red onion
1/2 c chopped mushrooms
4 cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 Egg White
Splash of Fat Free Milk
Splash of Hot Sauce
Sea Salt & Pepper
Topped with 2 Tbsp Low Fat Cheddar Cheese
Preheat a nonstick pan with nonstick cooking spray over medium low heat. Add the veggies and cook 3-4 minutes. Combine egg, egg whites, hot sauce, milk, sea salt and pepper. Add egg mixture to pan and cook until done. Top with cheese.
I made up a Tropicana 100% Juice Spritzer to go with breakfast. 1/2 c OJ with fizzy water and ice.
I added extra hot sauce as I ate ~ SO GOOD! I could totally eat this all over again and it was only 4 WW points.
While The Husband slept in, I ran around getting things done around the house. I picked us up Starbuck’s to get our day started. Today I got a DIRTY LATTE! I LOVE ordering it – so fun. Grande FF decaf latte with 1-2 pumps of chocolate (depending on how much chocolate you want to taste). Each pump is 1 point and the grande latte is 3 points. YUM – it was like hot chocolate that wasn’t super sweet!
When we got home we were both starved and wanting something warm since it has been raining all weekend. I pulled out a box of the Campbell’s V8 Vegetable Blend Soup to try.
I have to admit when you pour it into the pan, it looks pretty nasty. I was surprised at how thick it was as I expected it to be a broth based soup. I honestly thought this soup was just ok ~ it was very canned tasting to me and I didn’t finish it even after doctoring it up with salt, pepper and hot sauce. (2 WWP)
The total highight of lunch were these Whole Wheat Lavish Wraps I bought at Whole Foods.
Check out these AMAZING stats ~ the entire thing is only 2 points. I totally want to use one to make a LAVISH PIZZA!
I made a Cheesy Mushroom Quesadilla to go with my soup.
1 Whole Wheat Lavish Wrap, folded in 1/2
1/2 c sliced mushrooms
1/4 c Big S Farms HOT Habenero Salsa
1/4 c Low Fat Cheese
Cooked up in nonstick cooking spray. It was AFTER I made it that I realized this would’ve been PERFECT in my new PANINI PRESS – ahhh! Oh well, next time.
I LOVE these lavish wraps – they are like a cross between and pita and a flour tortilla but super soft and loaded with flavor. (4 WWP). I had a baby organic Fuji apple for dessert that somehow went un-pictured.
After lunch, we broke out some of our Christmas decorations. We decided to go simple this year with our Charlie Brown Tree instead of re-arranging for a big tree. I LOVE our Jr TREE!
I spent the rest of the afternoon filling out Christmas cards and putting together packages to mail. I had planned on making the Potato Chowder, but, decided it could wait until tomorrow (sorry all :) I opted for leftovers ~ Delicious Arrabiatta Spaghetti with Meatballs a la The Husband. (8 WW Points). I skipped my veggies with healthy oil for tonight.
I am off to curl up with 1 of the 3 magazines I bought this weekend and some tea by our tree!

Cheesy veggie scramble…cheesy quesadilla….yum yum!! 😀
I actually really liked that soup! I didn’t like the container though, not too easy to seal back up like the cartons that have the pop top thingi.
WOW those lavash wraps look INCREDIBLE. They are so huge and so few calories! I will have to check these out next time I’m at WF.
Your tree is ADORABLE!
I am so ordering that dirty latte when I go to S*bucks today!!! That is genius! That quesadilla is bomb looking too!
