Today has to start off with a little ChocoLOVE Confessions from last night. The Husband was admiring our ChocoLOVE stack and really wanted to dig in. I told him he could pick ANY bar he wanted and he picked the Toffee & Almonds in Milk Chocolate.
Since it is Milk Chocolate it doesn’t have as good of stats, but, still not bad 1/3 of the bar is 4 points.
Think I joined in ~ ummm….YA!!!! Especially when he was eating the entire bar OMG this bar is AMAZING!!! Seriously…it’s like a SKOR bar with roasted almonds, but, better ~ crunchy, melty, caramel crunch. I was seriously in CHOCO-LOVE!!! (ya, I am dork like that!)
This morning I woke up to an AWESOME Husband! He seriously must be trying to get in his Valentine’s presents early. He was listening to me ramble on about not really feeling any breakfast foods lately as I packed my lunch. He offered to get us Starbuck’s and surprised me with this.
A Dirty Latte (of course) for 3 points and then their Low-Fat Very Berry pastry that I pondered eating for a bit. It was 7 points and well, 10 on breakfast is pretty steep. So, what did I do?? I planned out my food for the entire day and realized I could totally fit it all in – woohoo! It was awesome and surprisingly kept me going all morning.
Well almost ~ I was STARVING after 5 hours of waiting for the work BBQ to start, so I caved and snacked on a few Trader Joe’s Pita Puffs (30 of them for 2 pts).
I have to admit I was thoroughly impressed with our WORK BBQ! Our head honchos were throwing a BBQ to make the rain go away which totally worked because it was BEAUTIFUL and SUNNY all day.
They created 3 FANCY salads that used THREE NEW Annie’s Naturals Dressings. I LOVE that Annie’s is now expanding their line of FAT FREE and LITE dressings and their sleek new labels look pretty cool too! If only the picture would come out better
* LITE HERB BALSAMIC
* FAT FREE MANGO
* FAT FREE RASPBERRY BALSAMIC
I scooped up each of the 3 salads, a ton of veggies from the veggie tray, GUACAMOLE, Jalapeño Artichoke dip and a few Pita/Kettle Chips. (guesstimate 5-6 pts)
Plus a Boca Burger with Annie’s Organic Ketchup & Organic Honey Mustard. I LOVE Boca Burgers – I don’t know why I don’t eat them more for only ONE POINT EACH!!!
All washed down with my FAVORITE 0 point Sobe POM Yumberry Life Water. I am super proud that I resisted the HUGE cookies they had for dessert.
The rest of my day dragged on, but, I had the COOLEST SURPRISE waiting for me when I got home. The Husband is ALMOST finished with my Raised Garden Box….he was adding the finishing touches when I got home.
This might be my FAVORITE stone ever…..
He did such a great job, now, I just have to figure out the what and when to plant ~ SO EXCITED!!!
So, since I know a bunch of your are Twilight Fans including our niece, I had to show you all the funny Edward Doll we bought her for her 9th birthday this weekend ~ Think it’s cool? How many of you want
him the doll?
I had a different dinner planned tonight using a super cool technique I’ve been wanting to try…but, honestly, I just wasn’t feeling it. So, I pulled out these Cool Putney Pasta Whole Wheat Spinach/Cheese Ravioli’s from the freezer.
6 pts a a serving, not bad.
GASP ~ GOAT CHEESE!
I LOVED their packaging and character ~ they are funny.
I thought I’d whip up some Zesty Ravioli’s but I realized I didn’t have the ingredients ~ oops. Instead, I just cooked the ravioli’s for 5 minutes in TJ’s Marinara, added some crushed red pepper and spinach, then, cooked for 2 minutes.
Topped with some freshly shaved parmesan.
I LOVE how the ravioli’s actually had HUGE pieces of spinach that looked fresh. The cheeses were super creamy and I LOVED the al dente texture.
I had a 3 point slice of Texas Toast Garlic Bread on the side.
What do you all think we should grow first in our Organic Garden? I would LOVE any and all advice you would LOVE to share
I am off to indulge in some reading ~ I am so pumped for another 3-day weekend!!! One more day to go……
