My sister and I had the chance to meet a fellow WW who was in town to visit her daughter from out of town. Nancy actually found me through my friend Tina – Nancy was Tina’s 5th grade teacher! She was so awesome, spunky, down to earth and reminded me a lot of my Mom. She’s been a retired teacher/school administrator for the last 7 years and enjoys traveling. Oh, and she’s also lost 50 pounds this year!
We decided on The Dearborn because it’s close to my office. Nancy got a little lost, so I ended up taking an hour and a half lunch – no worries, just made it up at the end of the day. It was worth it!
What was also worth it was my lunch – a pastrami reuben and it was spectacular. I ate half the sandwich and a few fries, and counted lunch at 15 points. But I had a hard boiled egg and fruit for breakfast (0 points) which left me with 8 points for dinner. I made it work!
This risotto is for my next Chopping Block post, so won’t be posted for a couple weeks – it’s made with zucchini, mushrooms and apples and it screams fall. Half a cup of that was 3 points, then I had 4 points of beef. And ended my day with 22 points.
In more exciting news – Safe + Fair Honeycrisp Apple Pie is back in stock!! The last batch went by so fast – so get it while the getting is good. I’ve already done the math for you – if you buy 5 bags you’ll get free shipping with my discount code Biz25. Unopened they are shelf stable for a year so stock up now while you can. This is my favorite granola of all!

Happy Tuesday friends – make it a great day!
