Check out my new “WalkMan”

by DanicasDaily on March 24, 2012

Happy Weekend All!  This week has been so insanely busy, but, in a really good way.  I have my Weight Watchers E-Tools & Mobile Apps Tutorial presentation all ready to go for tomorrow, handouts made, Coconut Almond Granola cooked for our High Fiber Breakfast Bar and 2 NEW Versions of Slow Cooker Oats getting ready to go in the Crockpot.

Now, I think all I have left for the morning is to prepare a double batch of Coconut Donut Holes.  I am so excited, but, nervous ~ fingers crossed I present in a way everyone understands.

I will post a link for my Weight Watchers Presentation for all of you tomorrow so you can download and will have a full recap of how our day goes.

Let’s see ~ what else is there to catch up on…..

This week’s Wordless Wednesday I snapped when we went to Driven Raceway. We had to wait for about 20 minutes before we were able to race so he clowned around with the head cover they gave us.

We saw 21 Jump Street yesterday too ~ SO FUNNY!

And…..our Big Kitchen Window got all dressed up for SPRING!


This morning we were off and running to tackle everything early.  Our first stop was Starbuck’s for a grande nonfat decaf latte with caramel drizzle on top (3 points+).


Lunch was at Panera where I tried 2 NEW Pick Two’s.

Asian Sesame Chicken Salad (6 points+) ~ I actually really liked the nuttiness of the sesame seeds and almonds.  They balanced well with the sweet sesame vinaigrette & crunchy won tons.


I totally thought my side apple would have been delicious mixed in the salad.


1/2 Simple Smoked Turkey Sandwich ~ the BREAD and all the crunchy veggies make this sandwich pretty tasty for being so simple (5 points+)


After lunch we headed over to Best Buy to use up a store credit we had. 

His & Hers IPOD Touches!!!

Can I just say I NEVER knew what I was missing until I had a IPOD Touch??

I figured my Droid X phone was enough…..but wow ~ this is so much more than a “Walk Man!” Winking smile

Seriously LOL!


We also picked up a few new chips to try while stocking up on supplies for tomorrow.

Kettle Sweet Baja BBQ TIAS!


4 points+ a serving


BBQ Corn Chips are amazing…..sweet, tangy, bbq-Y!


Next up ~ was making up one of my all time favorite granolas that I have made for a few years now.  It is delicious straight up, on top of oatmeal, yogurt, ice cream, smoothies.

You can find the recipe for this Coconut Almond Granola HERE.

It doesn’t hurt that it only takes minutes to make. 

Simply combine the dry ingredients ~  Old fashioned oats, unsweetened coconut, raw almond slices and brown sugar.


Whisk the wet ingredients ~ warmed honey, canola oil and vanilla.


Pour the wet ingredients over the dry.


Toss until everything is well coated.


Pour out onto a greased cookie sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 25 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes after the first 15 minutes.


Store in an air tight container.  2 Tbsp = 1 points+ or 1/4 cup = 2 points+.


Dinner tonight was Flat Out Amazing Pizza with a top your own veggie pizza bar.


The “Secret” ingredient ~ sautéed in nonstick spray with crushed red pepper flakes, garlic salt & black pepper to get the moisture out.


The “Crust” ~ 3 points+ for the ENTIRE wrap. I ONLY buy the Multi-Grain one ~ the other flavors do not taste as good.


My first layer ~ sauce, cheese, mushrooms & jalapenos…..


Topped with my second layer ~ cheese, olives and cherry tomatoes.


Baked at 450 for 2 minutes without toppings, then, flipped, topped and baked for 7 minutes.


Crunchy, cheesy, spicy, sweet, mushroom-y good! Oh and you get to eat the ENITRE pizza for 6 points+.



Do you all have an IPOD?  What do you have on yours and what do you use it for?

As much as I LOVE technology, this is my FIRST IPOD ever…before that, I used a Walkman (ok, how many people know what I am talking about?? Open-mouthed smile), an MP3 player and then my phone.

Night all!
