Wednesday was a day that kind of flashed by. After my baking project in the morning, I headed over to my friend Gail’s house to deliver the goodie. It was well received, everyone thought it was really good. She tried to get me to eat a piece but I told her I had mine waiting at home. Actually, I wanted to be able to sit down with perhaps a cup of tea and really enjoy it.
Before I left, because I knew I’d get the question, I set out to calculate how it counted on Weight Watchers. Sadly, it came out to 8 points per slice…and that was with using fat-free sour cream. No one was happy with that number, but the good thing about having a best friend who is also on WW, we sort of brainstormed on how we could lighten up the recipe since we all liked it so much. I’ve got some good ideas and I’ll give it a try again soon, revamped! 🙂
I spent most of the day at Gail’s helping and I was pretty tired when I got home. I didn’t feel like cooking. Ralph suggested he pick something up at the local pizza shop. I agreed and told him I just wanted their Garden Salad. I figured I could fancy it up a bit.
He got himself a spaghetti dinner, which smelled wonderful, but I was happy with my salad and thought I made the right choice.
I started with this…
I added 2 of the MorningStar Farms Grillers California Turk’y Burgers which I cooked up in the toaster oven.
Along with the burgers, I added sunflower seeds, black pepper, Mrs. Dash and Newman’s Own Light Lime. Yes, kids, I am pretty predictable, but I like what I like and I also know what works for me in terms of WW so I stick with certain things. 😉
Big yum…not much work! Who doesn’t love that?!?
Then later, I got what I had been waiting for all day…
And how was it???
Well worth waiting for. Ralph loved it, too. I thought it tasted just about like Ele’s original. We’ll have to see how close my next version tastes to the original. ;-)The cup of tea was very enjoyable and relaxing. I should do that more often in the evening.
So Thursday dawned cold and rainy. Actually I don’t think our heater is working properly because it’s pretty chilly inside too. We’ll have to look into that.
I’m off to Verchio’s for produce. One of things I love about going there…you’re never sure what you’ll find. Sometimes that’s good, sometimes bad. As long as the keep having clementines I’m satisfied! We’ll see what I turn up.
Happy Thursday! Stay Warm!
