Loved reading all your comments yesterday on food budgets – and thanks for the great tips! 😀
Last week I got about 30 new potatoes on the dollar rack – last weekend I roasted them and kept them in the fridge to have on hand for the week. The roasted peppers inspired by breakfast – or what I like to call “end of the week leftover hash.”
Six ounces new potatoes, 1 ounce deli ham, 1 zucchini and 1/2 ounce of shredded Parmesan cheese – this hash comes in at 8 points, with the tiny bagel, breakfast is 11 points.
We celebrated National Bosses Day at my office yesterday – we decided to do a chili theme – I made the buffalo chicken chili, another co-worker made the best beer cheddar bread and my other co-worker brought in the chili fixins. The chili was a big hit – a couple people even went back for thirds! 😀
Um, I may have had two bowls and 2 slices of bread – maybe 13 points??
Tony called me up and asked if I had anything on the menu for dinner last night. I didn’t (but of course secretly hoping that he would utter the words “how about pizza?!”) so he said he would take care of dinner.
Enter: Homemade Hooters Buffalo Shrimp. Holy shizz peeps. These taste even better than the ones I have had at Hooters! The secret is in the breading – here’s how they look waiting for the deep fryer to get to temp.
They only take about 4 minutes to deep fry – look at how crispy they are! Tony and I each had 8 shrimp.
None of the finished product pictures turned out, but they kinda looked like this:
When we finished eating Tony said “I could eat these every night!” Yep, they were that good, but I wish he felt the same way about pizza. 😀
So I am sure everyone is waiting with baited breath about my weigh in . . .
Yep, I am up a pound for the last two weeks, but I will take it. My leader has the best catch phrase – work the plan a little, you lose a little. Work the plan a lot, you lose a lot. I hardly worked the plan at all – little tracking, the bites and tastes that never get recorded, and the lack of exercise.
So the topic at the WW meeting this week was CAN vs. WILL. I can work out every day, I can track on eTools, I can get my water intake in. So this week I have to turn the CAN into WILL:
- I WILL track my points (even on the weekends, which I never do)
- I WILL workout out 45 minutes a day
- I WILL cut down on the wine this week
- I WILL have a loss at next weeks weigh in
What WILL you do this week? Happy Saturday! 😀
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY FATHER-IN-LAW CARL!
