WIAW~Another day in Veggie Land

It is time for What I Ate Wednesday again.  For the possibly five people in the blog world who do Not know what that is, it is the Fun Food Fest hostessed each week by the lovely Jenn at Peas & Crayons.  When you’re finished here, be sure to visit P&C to see what everyone has cooking over there!

What I Ate Wednesday: Love Your Veggies

As usual, every month is Love Your Veggies Month here at BCDC.  Let’s see what’s on the menu.

Pepper and egg sandwich

 

One of my favorite meals in the whole world, one because it’s Delicious, and two because it reminds me of the sandwiches my Mom would make us when we were kids.  Pepper and egg sandwich from the local pizzeria.  My change to it is having them use sweet peppers instead of regular and adding some American cheese.  So good!

Diner salad

 

Salad at the diner.  I had forgotten to take my balsamic vinegar with me so I survived using their balsamic vinaigrette, just not much of it. 5 Points for the entire package…No Thank You.

Dinner to go with the salad was this…

Diner veggie dinner

 

One of my favorite things to do at the diner is to come up with things I can eat by using what they have on the menu.  They have a sandwich called a veggie cheese steak. It is a big roll with a grilled combo of mushrooms, onions, romaine lettuce, peppers and a bunch of other veggies topped with cheese and it’s delicious. But sometimes I don’t want to eat all if that bread so I decided I’d ask if they would put it over rice.  They said yes and I get a side order of brocolli.  Then I just sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top. So Very Good!

Monday at my house it was Two Crock Pots, No Waiting!

The one on the left is my Weight Watchers veggie soup bubbling away.  On the right is Ralph’s country ribs cooking, soon to be topped with barbecue sauce.  It’s one of his favorite meals and it’s easy for me.  He usually gets at least two meals from it and that again, is a good thing!

My finished product…

WW veggie soup

 

How many different ways can I show you my Weight Watchers veggie soup?  This time it’s cooked.  This is so good and makes the house smell so good as it cooks.  I get so many meals out of it that it’s crazy!  It goes a very long way and it’s very inexpensive.  One of these days, I’m going to try to figure out how much it costs.  Not a lot, I can assure you.  It’s a wonderful tool for me on Weight Watchers because it counts as 0 Points.  Sounds good to me.

So that’s WIAW for me for this week. Be sure to stop over to see what all the fuss is about at Peas & Crayons.  Just be careful, because I usually end up incredibly hungry after checking out all of the blogs over there.  Eat breakfast first!!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!!

  2. Veggie subs are always delicious, especially when you add some cheese. I love the WW veggie soup. It’s so pretty and colorful.
