You guys. I can’t even with these waffles. But I am going to be mean and not link to the recipe until it posts on The Chopping Block blog later this week. These are light, fluffy, crispy on the outside – and only 4 points for the whole thing – with leftover mini chicken bites from the night before, I made this mini chicken and waffle breakfast and it was a delicious 6 point breakfast.
It was another crappy day in Chicago. Jenn and I went to Ross on our lunch break so I could get a new backpack. Mine got soaked and was pretty much ruined. I’d used it for three years, so it was nice to get a new one and I love it! It’s Columbia brand, only $26. Because the merchandise always changes at Ross, I found it online and I got a good deal! And it’s water resistant – yes! I used a gift card that my Instagram daughter gave me for my birthday for part of it, so it was practically free – thanks Christina!
For lunch I brought a cup of pasta with leftover chuck eye steak that I grilled. Here’s my tip with the beef. I didn’t reheat it at all – I wanted to keep that medium rare taste and texture. I only heated up half of my pasta, but when the pasta was hot, I tossed the beef in with the pasta and it was so tender and delicious. Lunch was 6 points.
I love this bag – again a gift from my friend Christina. Is it me or what? I keep my electronics in it so I can find it easily in my backpack.
I realize I only took a lot of videos for these WonTacos. OMG – so good!! Did you know that you can get 8 wonton skins for only 8 points?
I fried them in my air fryer, and they were so good – spicy, creamy, crunchy and slightly sweet with the pop of corn. Each one is 8 points and at first thought I was like “I am not going to eat all of those!” Well, guess what? I did!
The star was the spicy smoky jalapeno cheese from Alouette – so good! I find my Alouette by the deli counter at Walmart, not where the regular bagged cheeses are.
And thanks to Shawna for coming up with the WonTaco name 😀
I could seriously eat those every night and not get sick of it!
How is it May 1 already??!! Another month and we are half way through the year – insane. What are you goals for May? To be honest, I don’t have any specific ones.
My focus? Make the best of every day. Consciously make better decisions, and if I string enough of those days together, I hope to see some results.
Happy Wednesday friends – make it a great day!!
