Just like a kid in a candy store….

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!

I just can’t get enough Mock My French Toast ~ at least it’s Nutritious & Delicious :) (6 pts)

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.

Buckhorn Yik Yak Salad

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)

String Cheese

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

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 :D

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 :)
