Happy Wednesday all!!! I have to say that I LOVE the tip for handling chips & salsa on yesterday’s post. Who would’ve thought to sip water in between each chip you break into pieces and to be the chatterbox at the table? It totally makes sense that you cannot shovel as many chips in while doing that. Thanks for the tip Christine! I pretty much think that is why she is an awesome WW leader ~ it’s ideas like that!
So, now you all know how to identify me at a Mexican Food restaurant LOL…..
I had to start today’s post with surprise # 5 million from The Husband. This one though ~ he took to a whole other level.
He knows I always LOVE everyone’s “Fall Displays” but I have never put one up. Although I did use to have a Casper the Ghost Poster thingy I hung on my door while in college ~ ha!
He went to Michael’s and created a display on our porch to add to our pumpkin family….
Then, headed over to his Sister’s house and left this on her porch. I was cracking up when the nephew’s called and said that it scared them when they got home because they thought something was on the porch
This morning breakfast started at 5 am with just a banana and coffee. After I trekked in on the train, I stopped by the Café and picked up a “custom” breakfast burrito…..
I asked what was in the Breakfast Burrito and he said he could make it ANYTHING I wanted….
, So, I created a wish list that went like this…..
* Egg Whites with every single veggie you have cooked without oil or butter
* 1 slice of bacon, no cheese or potatoes
* Salsa & hot sauce on the side
All rolled up in one of the BEST tortillas I’ve ever had ~ it was doughy, cheesy and spicy. I estimated my burrito at 7 points+ for the slice of bacon, 1/3 cup egg whites & tortilla.
I pretty much fell IN LOVE even more with the Waterfront Café at this point.
I wasn’t actually hungry for my lunch today until 1 PM and then I was only sorta hungry. I decided to trade in the BIG SALAD I packed for a cup of Pasta e Fagioli soup from the café.
This was absolutely delicious ~ packed with veggies, beans but no pasta. (6 points+)
I LOVE that you can compost your soup cup and spoon ~ no rinsing required.
Tonight I played the “Sous Chef” while The Husband whipped up his super secret chunky pasta sauce over angel hair pasta. He doesn’t do it often, but, it is honestly one of my favorite things he makes.
1 cup Barilla Plus Pasta topped with 1/2 cup Chunky Sausage & Tomato Pasta Sauce. (8 points+)
You get hints of smokiness from the fire roasted tomatoes along with a little spice form the Italian sausage followed up by the richness of wine. It’s AMAZING!
Served with 2 slices of Alexia Garlic Bread (3 points+)
He told me it’s just spaghetti but said he would spill the recipe if anyone wants it
Tomorrow is D-Day for my arm ~ wish me luck!!!
I have heard that almost EVERYONE at the new work place dresses up for Halloween. I have a few ideas in mind, but, I would LOVE more! What are your BEST costume ideas? They can be bought or made…..any and all ideas are welcome!
