Happy BIGGEST LOSER day all! I am SO freakin’ excited that Biggest Loser is back!! It’s going to be an awesome season even though I am a little sad for the 3rd person that they are not letting go to the campus. I really hope that they pull out a side challenge for them or something.
Today was a pretty awesome day other than having to spend $$$$ to get my car worked on. At least now I know it’s ready for our Grand Canyon Vacation….8 days and counting!
FAVORITE Breakfast Veggie Combo so far ~ Peppers & Snap Peas (0 pts).
My co-worker & I headed out to the Napa Farmer’s Market today and on our way back managed to trade in our lunches for Buckhorn Grill.
I mean, really, can, you blame me for getting this awesome Yik Yak Salad with Cajun Chicken ~ I ate every bite, except skipped the tortilla. (10 pt estimate).
I snacked on my string cheese on the way to Costco so I would resist all the voices of the samples calling my name (2 pts)
I used to always show you all my Farmer’s Market loot and somehow I haven’t done it in awhile. I am not sure what happened, but, it’s totally time to show & tell
Beautiful Organic Heirloom Tomatoes
Fun, funky organic peppers
Organic Green Beans
Organic nectarines & pluots ~ 5 lbs for $5 ~ SCORE!
While preparing lunch & dinner (a new crockpot recipe!) for tomorrow along with dinner for tonight I snacked on 2 Parmesan Almond Crackers (2 pts).
I swear I am like a little kid in a candy store when I get new goodies from the Farmer’s Market….I want to try them and use them all at once 😀
Dinner started out with a little pasta with steamed spinach on top of fresh spinach with chopped heirloom tomatoes.
Then, I added some Shrimp Scampi! It’s been way to long since I have some scampi in my life.
Layers & Layers of crunchy, fresh, lemon garlicky flavor.
Here is the breakdown of all the layers:
1 1/2 cups fresh spinach
2/3 cup Whole Wheat Pasta with 2 cups of steamed spinach
2/3 cup diced heirloom tomatoes
2 svgs shrimp scampi
1 BIG fork to down every bite!
8 points for my entire dish!
I have a feeling that I am going to be digging into the strawberries for dessert
