NY Style Bagels – 4 WW Points and Broccoli Cheddar Soup

NY Style Bagels – 4 WW Points and Broccoli Cheddar Soup
So I picked myself up by my boot straps and went to my first WW meeting in three weeks.  My last weigh in was February 12.  I kinda flew by the seat of my pants while Tony was in the hospital, I didn’t exercise at all and there was definitely some emotional eating going on.  I was prepared to have gained back the 5.6 that...

Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Cilantro Cream and a Tattoo?

Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Cilantro Cream and a Tattoo?
I am so done with winter.  When I left the house yesterday morning, it was 4 degrees, with a windchill of -20.  The only saving grace was the snow that fell the night before was like powder and could be brushed off our cars with a broom, and the sun was shining.  About the only thing I like about February is that it is still...

Italian Wedding Soup and a Blizzard?

Italian Wedding Soup and a Blizzard?
It’s never a good sign when the news starts reminiscing about the Blizzard of 1967 when referring to our weather starting this afternoon into tomorrow.  Projections now say that our county will get up to 24 inches of snow, with 40 mph winds.  It’s February people!   I am so over winter.  I just want to be able to put our gazebo up, watch White Sox...

Ancho Chile Pork and Hominy Stew and a Challenge

Ancho Chile Pork and Hominy Stew and a Challenge
We had our first snow of the season yesterday.  It just barely stuck to the ground, but its just a gentle reminder that 60 degree days are long gone. 🙁  But I have been listening to Christmas music on the radio! 😀  I just can’t stand that they seem to play the same songs over and over though. I baked a bunch of potatoes over...

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Apple and Curry

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Apple and Curry
So remember how I made breakfast nachos the other morning?  Well Hannah woke up with breakfast nachos on the brain, so she made them for me! 😀 I had a couple errands to run – Brandi, I finally shipped your package to you for your BSI win!   I also stopped by a small store to get new printer cartridges.   The woman that worked there and...

Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup

Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup
Since we woke up so late yesterday, our meal times were kind of off.  We ate breakfast around 11:00 – lunch around 3:00 and dinner around 7:00! I am going to be paying attention to my gluten intake.  I didn’t have any gluten products the first couple weeks of South Beach.  When I reintroduced gluten with our chili mac and I ate one of my...

Ancho Chili Turkey Mexican Soup

Ancho Chili Turkey Mexican Soup
I love coming home to packages!!  Yesterday I got a HUGE package from Wholly Guacamole – thanks to Danica’s giveaway that I won!  Look at all the loot – besides the food though, I think my favorite thing is the t-shirt saying – can’t wait to wear this shirt! We opened the medium salsa for the NIU football game last night – beware – the...

1,000 Calorie Dinner and Cream of Tomato Soup with Blue Cheese

1,000 Calorie Dinner and Cream of Tomato Soup with Blue Cheese
Our breakfast for our bosses yesterday was a big hit.  Let’s just say my bacon stuffed cinnamon rolls were a hit, as well as the breakfast casserole my co-worker makes that is to die for, and waffles, sausage, hash browns – we even had a special drink menu! My plate:  397 calories, 5.5 carbs My friend and I were able to walk outside yesterday –...

Yankee Pot Roast Soup and Bacon Stuffed Cinnamon Rolls?

Yankee Pot Roast Soup and Bacon Stuffed Cinnamon Rolls?
I had planned on making soup with the leftover roast we had over the weekend.  Have I mentioned that Tony doesn’t usually do leftovers? I think meatloaf, cold pizza and fried chicken are the three things he’ll eat leftover.  So I had leftover roast and I decided to make a soup with it. Only one problem, I forgot to make it!  But I had an...

Fried Food and Simple Chicken Tortilla Soup

Fried Food and Simple Chicken Tortilla Soup
Tony made me breakfast yesterday morning – I can only tell you that the french toast is savory – we are trying to come up with a recipe for the Nature’s Pride recipe contest so I can win a trip to FoodBuzz’s 2nd annual fest in San Francisco.  All I can tell you is that it was delicious! I wasn’t leaving to meet my mom...
