Hannah broke the news to me today.  I thought I had talked to her at length about the consequences of your actions, but I guess it just didn’t sink in. 



Hannah is in child development class and brought home a baby that makes all sorts of noises – our dog Ed is beside himself, he’s not quite sure how to react!  I had to sign off on this doll, because each one costs $800!  She has it for the next two days, and when this baby cries, its loud!  I am hoping it “sleeps” through the night tonight!

Last night I made a breakfast frittata for one for my breakfast this morning.  When I took it out of the oven, Hannah said “what’s that for?”  I told her it was breakfast and happily agreed to split it with her.  Um, half a serving is only 156 calories, and even with my apple, breakfast only came in at 216 calories!

Breakfast Frittata

  • 4 ounces cooked potato, sliced
  • 4 ounces shredded zucchini
  • 1/4 cup egg beaters
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 1 ounce cheese
  • 1 tablespoon half and half


Um, pretty sure this was delicious!  1/2 of this frittata is 156 calories, 4.9 fat, 13 protein, 14 carbs and 2 fiber.

I found Honeycrisp apples at Sam’s Club, and after seeing Meghann rave about them, I had to pick them up – they were 3 pounds for $3.99, and while on the small side, so delicious!  Tony and I both agree that this would be a great apple for apple pie!


So since I only had half of my frittata, i was starving by 11:30 – luckily I had these egg rolls in the freezer at work!


Perfect snack before my 45 minute walk at lunch!  But I seriously could not wait to eat my lunch.  It was so good!  I threw together a spicy Thai noodle soup with what I had on hand.

  • 3 quarts chicken broth (I used my chicken soup base)
  • 3 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and poked with a fork to let the juices out
  • 3 jalapeno peppers, sliced
  • 6 whole garlic cloves
  • 8 ounces cooked chicken
  • 8 ounces dried angel hair Chinese noodles
  • 6 frozen veggie potstickers

I simmered the broth, garlic, ginger and jalapenos for about 30 minutes.  I removed them and then added the cooked chicken and noodles until the noodles were done.  On the side I cooked the potstickers according to direction – heat 1 teaspoon oil, fry for 2 minutes, add 6 tablespoons water then put a lid on until they steamed.  Since I knew I was taking this for lunch, I kept the potstickers separate, then heated the soup and potstickers separately, then put them together and added chopped fresh cilantro.  HOLY YUM!  The broth was both spicy and flavorful, the perfect combo!  While this picture is not pretty, it is making the best broth!


The noodles:


The perfect lunch!


I deconstructed my soup for the nutrition – I had 6 potstickers, 2 1/2 cups of broth, 4 ounces of cooked noodles – this whole delicious bowl was only 385 calories, 4.9 fat, 12.5 fiber, 74 carbs, 4.7 fiber.

Who watched Biggest Loser last night?   All in all I thought it was kind of boring, but I still think Tracy is somewhat of bitch.  And every time I see Shay cry it makes me cry!  And how is it that Tracy loses 4 pounds NOT able to exercise??!!  The fast food challenge was interesting though!  That’s how it is in real life.

Alright – time to snuggle with my Tony!  See you tomorrow night for the winner of the Cabot Cheese giveaway!
