Good Morning and welcome to the type of What I Ate Wednesday post that happens once in a while. The type where I have little or nothing to show in the way of actual food because…I’ll tell the story as I go…which seems to be my routine of late. Be sure not to miss the chance to visit Jenn and company over at Peas and Crayons!
Since this is hap hazard at best, I’ll at least try to do it in order. Saturday is always Weight Watchers day around here. You wouldn’t know that I’ve ever even heard of WW if you saw some of the things I’ve been eating, but trust me it is! I’ve been lonely all summer because my two best friends, Gail and Alice have been away in Maine. They’re back and we’re back to our routine. Weight Watchers and then breakfast at the local diner.
Obviously, I was too hungry to wait for the photo! Egg beaters and fruit. Gail had a great idea. We all really wanted pumpkin pancakes. So we ordered a short stack (3 pancakes) and shared! We got the taste of pancakes but stayed in control. We used the sugar-free syrup. I didn’t have any toast so that made it even better! Pumpkin Everything, Please!
If you’ve visited BCDC before, you know that I am the Crock Pot Queen. I use them year round, but Fall and Winter is when they get the most use. Trying to keep myself on track, I was up bright and early Monday morning chopping up the goods for a batch of my version of Weight Watchers veggie soup.
Going along with the pumpkin theme, WaWa pumpkin coffee in the wonderful cup sister Ele gave me a few years ago. I love how they are color coordinated! Yum to both!
To be perfectly honest and show that I’m not kidding about eating things I shouldn’t…
Eggplant parmesan sandwich from the local pizza place. Should I have? No. Did I? Yes. Sadly, I also ate way too many french fries along with this. It’s gone now, it can’t hurt me anymore. I’m back on track. I promise. No, Really!!
Being back on track is proven by this next photo. If it was a piece of art it would be titled White Beans In White Crock Pot.
To go along with the WW veggie soup, I started a crock pot of white beans. Thank goodness I remembered to soak them last night. I realized I’m down to almost NO dried beans in the pantry. I have to correct that. A girl needs her protein! These will be added to the veggie soup but measured for each serving. Much easier to track the Points value that way and Boy do I need to get back to tracking the Points value!!
There you have it, What I Ate Wednesday for me this week. I’m hoping that next week will be much better, actually showing food that I cooked and looking like I’m just the tiniest bit on track with my Weight Watchers plan!
Be sure to stop over to visit all of the fun at Peas and Crayons, you’ll be glad you did!
Happy What I Ate Wednesday!
