Kitchen Fun

by DanicasDaily on February 22, 2010

Thanks everyone for your nice comments on my running story.  I LOVED reading about all your personal running experiences ~ totally inspiring :)  Ok, since the weekend is over :(, I have to make my Sunday recap quick so I can get to work *sigh* No more 3-day weekends forever….well, at least not until May.

The Husband requested eggwiches for breakfast since we had to make an early morning trip to Home Depot for his house project.   I whipped up a 5 pt eggwich ~ YUM!  I think I LOVE anything with eggs and bread :D


The BIG house project we are working on right now is redoing our back yard fence that fell down during the last big storm we had.  The Husband and his friend were pouring all the concrete and putting in the polls yesterday so my job was to make all the food.

You know that is TOTAL justification for a Starbuck’s ~ I had a 3 pt Dirty Latte.


I whipped up some Homemade Healthier Potato Salad for their lunches.  I added a little red bell pepper for crunch and a sprinkle of dill seasoning this time to mix things up.  If you are a potato salad lover you have to give this one a shot ~ you can have an entire CUP for 4 points versus 7 pts for only 1/2 cup of the real deal.


Plus a BIG Batch of Kale Chips ~ The Husband’s friend and I LOVE these, however, he won’t touch them LOL.


I made them GIGANTIC Club Sub’s with AVOCADO.


I couldn’t resist playing along because they looked so AMAZING.


2 Slices TJ’s FF Multi-Grain Bread

2 Slices Lean Honey Roasted Turkey & Ham

2 Slices Thick Bacon

2 Thick Slices Tomato

1/4 AVOCADO mashed with sea salt & pepper


BEYOND GOOD ~ I think this might be my new FAVORITE combination for 7 points.


This sandwich didn’t need my “chips” stuffed in it ~ I enjoyed them on the side. (0 pts)


With a little little 2 pt scoop of Healthier Potato Salad.


I spent the afternoon doing a little shopping, a little relaxing and a little playing in the kitchen.  I whipped up a batch of 2 pt Parsnip Chips to snack on ~ delicious!  I will post about these later this week too. 


Plus a 1 point Low-Fat Sargento Colby Jack Cheese (I get these at Sam’s Club too!).


Dinner was FAST and TASTY.  I took yesterday’s leftover Italian Sausage and Pepper Pasta topped it with some LF Sharp Cheese and baked it in the oven at 425 for 20 minutes.


While the pasta cooked, I pulled out another flavor of the Focaccia Breads I picked up at Sam’s Club ~ Spinach & Cheese.


2 points for 1/2.


Taken from the freezer and baked for 5 minutes at 425.


TASTY!  This flavor reminds me A LOT of the Bolani Breads with the spices.  I LOVE how soft, yet, crispy the bread gets.


Plus the rest of The Husband’s favorite new non-veggie corn :D


All together 9 points.


Ok ~ confession time ~ I got a little crazy with the candy last night.  This is why I usually RESIST buying any type of holiday candy.  I don’t need to have a Reese’s because it’s shaped like an egg or a Christmas Tree or any of that ~ I mean honestly, you can get Reese’s any time.

Obviously all that self talk didn’t do me any good because I still bought it LOL.  I do think one benefit is that it is only 2 points 4 points and it’s a single serving ~ totally worth it and there are none left in the house because I bought 1 for The Husband and 1 for me.


The Husband also broke out the Jelly Belly’s I bought him (1 bag for $1 at the Jelly Belly Outlet).  I knew I couldn’t resist, so I portioned them out into a little bowl and had a 2 point serving.


Not my proudest moment to share, but, in an effort to be 100% accountable to you all and myself there you have it :)  Good thing for WPA :D ~ today’s a new day to eat less LOL!

Have an AWESOME Monday all, well, if, that’s possible for a Monday. 

See you all tonight before the Bachlorette Tell All ~ Can’t wait to hear what’s said.
