Got a new Fridge for my b-day :)

Soo, we have a fridge, it is old, but we didn’t realize it was 15 years old til we looked it up.

It has the push buttons for water, which have been broke for a while now, we have been living with it, but it has become too small for us and my son and his wife, plus my youngest is coming home (woot woot) with his girlfriend, and I was like….ok…time for a new fridge.

It is so nice, has much more space, old one was side by side, this one has freezer drawer on bottom.  Easier to see everything, will help with stuff getting pushed back and going bad.

Plus it was on a deal and we got 18 same as cash financing.  Bohya!

WW tips – potato

so I love potatoes, some I got a bag of the small fingerling ones,   for breakfast I cut one up and fried it, plus an egg.

Only 2 pts, it is still big enough for my potato craving, but small enough not to use up a bunch of points!

You can also add to soup or make up small batch of potato salad without using lots of points!

Well, I have survived the flu from hell

OMG, that was awful, I can’t remember a more painful sickness then that!  And Ihad the flu shot.

At least we were able to go on our vaca to Maui, it was nice, still a little coughing, but other then that ok.

Saw some Sea Turtles, that was awesome!  So big, so cute.  We went on the Sub, went down 130 ft, saw bunch of fish, Eel, Shark and spotted Ray.  Pretty Nice Luau after sub.

It was nice but overcast so we didn’t use the sunblock we bought.

Yes it is expensive to eat, but try and hit the Happy Hours, then more reasonable, also go to grocery store for snacks and water, and if where you are staying offers breakfast, eat there.

 

 

Egg and Banana Pancake, I swear!

So I heard this recipe for Egg and Banana Pancake, and is true, it is good and seems like a regular pancake!

2 eggs, 1 banana, season with Cinnamon, and what else you would like, I blended it up and cooked it on a heated skillet, I did one big pancake, and it was good, plus NO points, eggs and fruit are free for WW!  I spiced mine up and it tasted like gingerbread.

Try it, you will like it!

 

OMG Chocolate Hummus, sounds nasty

but it is freaking TASTY and only 3pts for 2 Tablespoons,  yes please!

I get a few cherries, some banana, and top it with the Chocolate hummus, great for that chocoloate craving without using all your points.

Boar’s Head, Dark Chocolate Dessert Hummus – Your Welcome!

Kitchen Mash-Ups

This skill comes in handy for WW also.  So I had been buying some mushrooms that stuffed to cook, but I decided to do them myself, costs 1/2 the price and I can control what goes in.

So we had a bbq, lots of leftovers, chicken, bbq veggies, ect….hmmm…

cut up chicken, add some bbq zucchini, tomatoes and goat cheese, blend up,  take some mushrooms, take out stems (put to side DO NOT throw out, you wasters ;), stuff mushrooms with blend, put in Airfryer (OMG, I will post about this too, so awesome) 10 min, 300, and yummy,  3 WW pts, and very filling and yummy!

hmmm, what to do with the extra mushroom stems, oh hey, cut them out, add them to the squash soup base with tomatoes and some bbq zuchinni, thats right, another freaking meals with leftovers that is yummy, good for you and means no wasting food or money!

 

WW + kitchen toys = Delish!

HA…..I love the WW app, the bar code scanner is a life saver!

The other day I spiralized some butternut squash, and yam, zero pts, then I put them on the T-Fal grill and made hash browns out of them.  Boo freaking YAH!

Grilled up some tofu (3 oz) 2 pts and goat cheese (3oz) 3pts, in skillet, warmed up some flatbread 1pt, and nice breakfast for 6pts.

In case you are wondering, on points system I have 30 daily points and 28 weekly (oops) points.  The daily reset every day to 30, the 28 don’t, they reset weekly.

Ok, That is IT, the Spiralizer is my FAVE!

This is a great gadget, I just got done making my own chips, with a potato that hadn’t been used and I didn’t want to waste it!, and they be lip smakin’ good, just oil, plus some seasoned oil, potatoes, and salt after.  I had a spice mix so I added that to the last batch of chips, give them a little different flavor.

The spiralizer gets the potato really thin, takes no time at all to fry, you would be amazed at how many chips a potato makes…..we are paying thru the #$%^ at the store!

So I don’t have to feel bad to eat my potato plate of chips, all though I won’t, because it is a LOT of chips.

I have all sorts of ideas floating thru my mind, lets see what I do next!

Daily Harvest …..daily good

So as you know we are trying to eat better, so while smoothies are good, most places add yogurt, ice cream ect….that while taste yummy , defeat the purpose.  So we found Daily Harvest, they have smoothies (like a lot) ice cream (yes Ice Cream) but it is harder to make, and I am not a fan of the one with cauliflower in it, Chai parfait (bleck…but only my opionion) and soups.

I like the different varieties of flavors, benefits, and that they come frozen so you can use them when you want to, and scheduling is super easy.  They come with fruits and veggies, you add the liquid.

Green Chef – es good

So my mom and I are trying to eat healthier, mostly a plant based diet, so the Green Chef has a great vegetarian option with organic produce.

The dishes were easy enough even I could cook them, all though I still screw up some, ’cause Betty Crocker I ain’t!

It was nice because most of the time, if there was an ingredient we didn’t like ….say onions, peppers, ect….we could skip them.

Luckily my mom has a neighbor who likes spicy stuff like that so we could give it to him so the stuff didn’t go to waste.

Most of the dishes made 2 to 4 small servings, so it was perfect for us.

While it not “cheap” per plate, you would spend more getting all the ingredients , and yes you would have some left over, but how much of it would be wasted before you could us it all?

So this plan or any of the food plans are good for 1 / 2 people, more then that, not sure the price works as well.
