Even though these sous vide bites don’t look that appetizing – they are delish!  Light, fluffy.  I did have several people make them yesterday (who knew so many people had the silicone muffin cups!) and here are a couple tips so they cook in the 20 minutes – make sure that the water bath line is 3/4 up the side of the muffin cup – and cook with a lid on the whole time.  Hope that helps!

Knowing I was going to have a big ass burger for lunch, my breakfast came in at 1 smart point.  #winning!

We originally wanted to eat on the River Walk, but they don’t take any reservations.  While my sister has a flexible lunch schedule, I have to clock in and out (boo!) so I didn’t want the chance of having to wait 30 minutes for a table.  Luckily, The Dearborn is right across the street from my office.  I had my sister text me when they were seated so we got to have a leisurely lunch.  

Don’t you love when food bloggers eat together?!  Me, taking a picture of Jenn’s phone, taking a picture of the truffle parmesan fries.  #yum

Hi Momma!!

Somehow over the years I’ve become a burger snob.  I have many criteria that make it the “best burger ever.”  Most important over all is a seasoned beef patty that can be cooked to medium rare (my taste) and a bun that is soft, yet sturdy enough to hold up to the burger.  

This burger has it all and then some.  Extra sharp aged cheese, “special sauce” (that tastes like a garlic aioli to me) and dill pickles.  And the hand cut fries are amazing too – crisp on the outside, yet tender on the inside.  

Hello gorgeous.  It’s 8 in the morning right now, and my mouth is watering just thinking about this burger.  If that isn’t burger porn, I don’t know what is.  And guess what I am doing with the leftovers?  Making tacos out of the meat for dinner tonight – you know I am the leftover queen!

And lucky for me, my sister and Mom don’t like dill pickles – more for me!  Thanks Jenn for treating to lunch!

I am night secretary Monday through Thursday this week and next week.  I only have to stay if someone signs up, and two people did, so I had to work until 7.  My train wasn’t express at that time, so I didn’t get home until 9.

The only thing nice about that is that it’s still light out when I leave the office.  The extra time on the train let me come up with a low point stir fry sauce.  Since I guestimated my lunch as 20 points, I needed a low point dinner, and knew I had fresh green beans and shrimp in the freezer.

When I write recipes on the train, it either tastes like ass, or tastes amazing.  Happy to report this one was delicious!

I still got a decent amount of steps without a formal workout yesterday!   I was at 22 points by the end of the day, and even though it was nearly my bed time by the time I finished dinner, I had a taste for something sweet.  I follow a woman Judy on Instagram, and she had a recipe for protein fluff – it looked like puffy whipped cream, and it was only 1 point.  What the what?!  I am going to post about it tomorrow, but basically it’s 1/2 a scoop of protein powder (32 grams to be exact) (2 points), a teaspoon of corn starch, 1/4 package of sugar free chocolate pudding mix (dry), 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk and a cup of ice.  Just throw everything in your food processor and let it run for a few minutes until fluffy.  It nearly filled my food processor container for only 2 points.  It was sweet, fluffy and 15 grams of protein – I couldn’t even eat half of it.  

I put the rest in the freezer and will report back tonight on how the consistency is from the freezer.

Happy Tuesday friends – make it a great day!!  I ended my day 23/23.  Miracles do happen!  I thought for shits and giggles I’d actually try to work the Weight Watchers program as it was written. šŸ˜€
