Good morning bloggers and friends! I am so glad it is already Thursday because all I want to do on Saturday morning is sleep and since it’s Thursday I only have 2 more days until I can actually get a good nights sleep! It’s weird though, because I have been getting between 7 and 8 hours of sleep each night this week. I guess I am still catching up from my all night bonfire on Sunday. Oh well, Saturday will be here soon enough and at this time, I will not be blogging I will be sleeping for a really long time! But anyways, enough about my crazy sleeping onto food!
Last night, I actually made something that we hardly ever make: Rice Sides. This kind was Creamy Broccoli flavored, but I added a few things to kick it up a notch. This rice side says you need to add water and butter, but I omitted the butter and just added water. It also says to bring water to a boil, add rice and simmer for 7-9 minutes. So, I did this but when it was about 6 minutes into it, I threw in some more fresh broccoli and some shrimp! Total points for rice and shrimp: 5.
Along with our dinner, I made the last of our corn on the cob. It looks like someone snuck into my picture! This is Charlie everyone, it’s a long story as to why we have him so I will let you think what you want Total points for corn on the cob: 1.
And my dinner all together without Charlie (total points:6)
And last night for dessert, I didn’t have any points left so I really had to use my imagination! I had 1/4 cup of ice cream (a 1/2 cup is ZERO points), 2 tbs of fat free cool whip, strawberries and a little sprinkle of peanut butter granola (seriously, it wasn’t even a tbs!) So, needless to say, my Zero Point dessert was awesome! The strawberries enhanced the flavor of the ice cream and the granola added a little crunch, definitely a winner in my book!
This morning for breakfast, I made myself a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch and fiber one. I also had some pineapple but didn’t snap a picture. My total points for breakfast: 3.
For my lunch today, I packed up the last of my left over turkey chili (3pts)
A side salad without dressing (0 points)
1 cup of grapes (1point)
And my lunch all together with a snack pack! Total points for lunch: 4.
Tonight we are supposed to play kickball but so far the weather doesn’t look so promising. But, I do know we are going to Panera for dinner, anyone have any ideas as to what I should get????? Let me know, and have a great day
