Wonderful Weekend

Howdy friends! Can you believe it’s already Sunday evening?!?! Hope everyone made the best of their weekend! Mine was great!

Saturday morning I was up before 6am for some reason! The positive? I got lots done before 8am! Breakfast was 2 eggs with 2 slices of toast for 5 points. I love to dip my toast in the yolk! What’s your egg preference?DSC09037

Kyle and I hit up the grocery store to stock up for the week! The majority of the rest of my day was spent the in the kitchen! I cleaned, chopped, peeled, cut, etc our foods for the week! I also made a big pot of soup! More on that another day!

Lunch was quick in between everything! I had 2 oz whole wheat pasta, 1/2c marinara sauce, and a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese for 5 points. DSC09038

We spent the afternoon cheering on the Hawkeyes to another win! Woo hoo!!!

I was anxious for our evening, we had dinner guests! :) I made creamy baked chicken, roasted carrots & potatoes, and had pineapple on the side. My servings totaled 7 points. DSC09039 DSC09040

We can’t forget desert! I made mint brownie ice cream bars, 4 points/serving.DSC09041

This was a recipe from one of my many WW cookbooks!

  • 1 13.7 ounce package of ff fudge brownie mix
  • 2/3 c vanilla low fat yogurt
  • 3 cups vanilla low fat ice cream, softened
  • 1 t peppermint extract
  • 18 chocolate thin mints, chopped
  • 2 T chocolate syrup

Prepare brownie mix according to package instructions, using 2/3c yogurt. Bake in foil lined 8X8 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 34 minutes. Cool completely. Combine ice cream and mint extract, stir well. Spread evenly over brownies. Cover & freeze for 8 hours or until firm. Sprinkle chopped mints over ice cream. Cut into squares; drizzle with chocolate syrup before serving. Yields 12 servings.

We spent the evening watching the #1 team get upset and talking all things pregnancy & baby, they are 9 weeks pregnant! Too fun! :)

Sunday we went to church, had lunch w/Kyle’s family, napped, I got a 2 mile run in, and we caught up on house stuff! An over great day!

I don’t have my usual food pics for the day, but I do have this one! I picked up a fall wreath for our door! DSC09055

That’s all for me friends! How was your weekend? What was the highlight?

I cannot even look at a soft boiled egg, it creeps me out ;-). I'm a scrambled egg girl all the way!
Got our Halloween decorations up today and got in a great run outside. It's been a nice weekend.

I was just considering buying one of the WW cook books.. is there one you like best?

Alison said...

I'm a new reader.
Love the blog.
You're an inspiration!
I can't seem to get into the WW grove. Loser, I know.
It's the 'advance planning' that kills me.
I'd like to hire you as my personal chef? (I'm sure if you had a nickle for every time you heard that... :)

Hi. I'm a new reader of your blog. You are definitely an inspiration especially about how good your eating is.

Kyle and Darci said...

Blubeari: You know I have a TON of WW cookbooks! But I just got the Take out Tonight one and I really like it! Real foods with simple ingredients!

Alison & strivingforhealthiness: Thanks for the comments! I love new readers!

Jenna Marie said...

Sunny Days said...

So glad your weekend was good! Mine was not...I haven't been feeling very good this week.
I loved the last comment you left me about eating to lose. That is how I first started to lose weight but, now that I have lost 73 lbs. and have slowed down on losing I feel lost and not sure how to keep it going. Thanks for your encouragement!

Marcelle said...

your meals looks so so good....I also love eggs and toast...but only have one slice and one egg...:(

Love ur decoration on your front door....I will miss decoration this season, but will be back in time for Xmas decorations.

HI! ♥ I just started following you through Syl's page! Obviously Weight Watchers is working for you. Any advice for me? I am thinking of starting on WW!

Skinny H said...

Hey Girl,
Glad to see your still going strong. I have so missed the blogging world. While I have been gone the last 6 months or so I have packed the pounds back on, But I am back at it. Counting calories, working out, and on my way to skinny again. You are such an inspiration!
Thanks Girl,

That creamy baked chicken looks out of this world, and I MUST try that dessert yum!


Mae Flowers said...

That dessert sounds soooo good! I can't wait to hear about this soup you made. I love soup this time of year.

Fran said...

You've had a great weekend. I love seeing your food pics, it all looks delicious!

And how about adding some more pics? I’m not trying to offend anyone, content is really nice. Just as I know people acquire info much more effective if they see certain useful pics.
