After much thought, the winner of this weeks BSI is . . . Brandi with her Chunky Mocha Mole Chili. I must have subliminally stole her idea of putting chili in an acorn squash when I made my pork and black bean salsa last week!  Looks very similar!

Brandi, send me an email at and send me your address for a gift box of a few of my favorite products – Congrats!

This weeks hostess is Jenn from Cooking Aweigh the Pounds.  And she chose an ingredient that is very close to Tony’s heart . . . BACON!

Monday is usually my weigh in day . . . but I decided to wait after the second week of being on South Beach.  I did really good last week, I worked out a lot and ate on South Beach plan . . . I want to keep the momentum going this week! 😀

I’ll be back to my usual posts tomorrow.

Make it a Great Day!
