Hannah had to work last night, so it was an at home date night for me and Tony! We relaxed outside with some wine while the grill got going – but I have to start at the beginning!
Breakfast was my typical egg white sammie – 1.8 ounce multi-grain bread, 1/2 cup egg whites, 1.5 ounces 75% reduced fat Cabot cheese and two pieces of crisp bacon = heaven on a plate!
So with our leftovers from Thursday nights Chinese food, I took my whole container, put it in a colander and rinsed off all the sauce. I picked out most of the veggies, some of the meat and decided to add my own sauce – it turned out really good! I had to run some errands at lunch and picked up these egg rolls – each one is only 140 calories and it was actually crisp out of the microwave!
So no party pizza Friday! I had some chicken breasts I needed to use up, and Tony suggested I make a cheese sauce to go over them. I didn’t have any milk, so I decided to use chicken broth and it was really good!
Chicken Broth Cheese Sauce
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 4 ounces cheese (we used cheese ends so it was a mixture of all different cheeses!)
- pinch of Italian seasoning
- pinch of garlic powder
- cracked pepper
- 755 calories, 62 fat, 14 carbs, 0 fiber, 35 protein
- no salt was necessary because of the salt in the broth and cheese
It was so flavorful, a little went a long way – I guestimated that I had about 115 calories worth on my dish.
And we also thought of adding bacon! Have you ever grilled bacon before? Me either – but we absolutely loved the smokiness the bacon got from the charcoal grill.
We also grilled up two more ears of this delicious corn!
All together: 1 ear of corn, 5.5 ounce chicken breast, 2 pieces of bacon and cheese sauce. It was really good!
Not pictured was the popcorn I made last night
Stats for Friday:

Not sure what’s in store for our day other than the usual chores – I have a blogger meet up tomorrow – can’t wait! Off to fix breakfast, where I am sure cheese will be involved somehow!
