I also totally watched that show “I dream of Jeannie” growing up…how many of you used to watch that show? It’s ok you don’t have to fess up. I know my list of old school shows is pretty long…Gilligan’s Island, The Love Boat, Mr. Ed (I loved that talking horse!)……oh the list goes on and on!
Anyway, I digress…Do you ever wake up in the morning excited about what you are going to have for dinner? That was totally me this morning ~ I was like willing the day to go by quickly just so I could get to the totally delicious dinner we had planned. It probably didn’t help that I have been dreaming of mushroom pizza ever since I had a slice at Mary’s a few week’s back.
Before heading out this morning, I cooked up a Healthy Egg Roll ~ Believe it or not, I’ve totally missed these this week. (SF + 1 WPA) – 5 points+
I love that my Starbuck’s looks like it’s “glowing” today ~ honestly, it’s totally how I felt going there to get my tall nonfat latte…..like it was just what I needed to brighten my day or maybe it is more like it is glowing because I am totally in love with Starbucks (SF) – 3 points+
I ended up trading in my egg salad sandwich today for lunch with my co-workers at Grace’s Table. I started with this Grilled Artichoke topped with a delicious peppery romesco sauce.
Then, I moved on to my usual Beet Salad sans the chicken ~ today, I totally missed the chicken.
Avocado, super creamy fromage blanc, mache lettuce, meyer lemon juice, olive oil, maldon salt
I counted 2 points+ towards my WPA for the real deal cheese. (SS/SF + 2 WPA) – 4 points+
The folks at Keurig sent me a selection of Hot Teas to give a whirl ~ perfect for afternoon tea.
I really like this Celestial Seasonings Green Tea ~ it has the perfect balance of tea vs. green tea flavor without being too grassy (yep, I think most green teas taste like grass )
It paired perfectly with my Reese’s PB Egg. (SF + 2 WPA) – 2 points+
Before starting dinner, I knew I needed a snack so I grabbed an Oikos (one of favorite yogurts of all times).
I count flavored yogurts like this ~ 0% Greek Yogurt = Simply Filling, and 1 Tbsp. of Jam is 1 points+ towards your Weekly Points Allowance (WPA) – SF + 1 WPA or 3 points+
I have been waiting for tonight’s dinner all week long ~ Flat Out Amazing Simply Filling Pizzas!
Did I mention all week long?! I do not know why I waited so long for pizza during Meatless March.
The “meat” topper on today’s slice was sautéed peppers, onions and mushrooms.
After preheating the oven with the cookie sheet in it to 425 and cooking my flat out wrap for 3 minutes, I flipped it and started layering on all my Simply Filling Vegetarian Pizza Goodness!
My first layer was sauce and my meat mix….topped with 1/2 my cheese (low-fat mozzarella) pickled sweet cherry peppers and fresh jalapenos…..
Then, the rest of my cheese (I used 1 oz. in total, finely shredded with a sprinkle of parmesan), fresh sweet red pepper slices, more jalapeno and tomatoes.
Baked for 8 minutes until the crust is crispy and the cheese is all melty and slightly browned.
He loved these so much he had two of them!
If you take the seeds and membrane out of the fresh jalapenos, it’s not hot ~ just peppery good ~ promise – be brave, try it, you’ll like it
100% Simply Filling or 5 points+ for the entire thing!
He was in charge of our salad which I think contained like every salad ingredient in our fridge ~ power to the greens, romaine, carrots, cabbage, cucumber, peppers, tomatoes.
