Thanks for everyone who participated in the resurrected BSI! Last week’s secret ingredient was potato. Here are the participants, in no particular order:
Lori made Sweet Potato Muffin Biscuits:
Lisa made Party Potatoes: (no picture, so I used google images!) Made with potato buds!
Joy made Blue Potato Microwave Chips:
And the winner of two jars of salsa is:
I love chorizo and I love that its put on a bed of mixed greens – the husband loves a runny egg too!
You know Tony is feeling better when he asks if he can make ME breakfast! I never say no to that. He made me a potato, red pepper and pancetta frittata with some toast on the side. He spiced it up with some chili oil – this was delicious! Thanks honey – no one makes eggs as good as you! My guess is this plate is about 10 points (I ate 3/4 of it).
My SIL Jody came over to be my shopping partner in crime. Here are Tony and Jody – Jody is holding the wound vac!
Our first stop was Williams-Sonoma. Usually when I have a gift card I end up buying lots of little things to feel like I got more bang for my buck. Not this time! I only bought three things and my total came to $85!
First up: a REALLY REALLY ($30) nice muffin tin.
Even without any Pam, they muffins came out perfectly:
Then I found these on the discount rack – aren’t they cute? Mini cast iron enameled pots. Check out the original price! I am thinking of making individual casseroles with these – maybe even make mini breakfast quiches in them?
Lastly, I got these wire skewers – a set of four for $20. No matter how long I soak wooden skewers, they always seem to burn.
Then we went to Moe’s Southwest Grill for lunch:
I got the chicken rice bowl – I did the nutritional calculator on their website – it said 13 points for the whole thing. I ate about 2/3 of this and with some chips, I am calling lunch 10 points.
Okay, I am going to wrap this post up – its so long! I ended up making this beef stew again for dinner last night – just as good as the first time around. When I reached into my bag of potatoes, these were the first three that I pulled out:
I don’t even want to tell you what Tony said after seeing these!
BSI THIS WEEK: BEEF! It’s what’s for dinner.
