Friday is always a fun blog post to write – I take photos of things that made me happy during the week – sometimes serious, sometimes materialistic. I hope to link up with Andrea, etc. so go here to see other bloggers’ Friday Favorites!
So my favorites today are also some of my favorite things in life – shoes and food! This week was really just about working, sleeping, cooking, and eating – so there you go!
I was in search of the perfect tan summer sandal – comfortable, perfect heel height, wearable at school and out and I ordered the MIA Bety. It’s not as comfortable as the MIA Sofia, but I’m working on breaking them in.
Lots of angles for you to see! They definitely have a 70s vibe. They were about $90 on Amazon.
So, I’m plugging along with my WW plan and actually yesterday was one calendar month since I began.
I have been having avocado toast pretty much every day for an afternoon snack. My bread is one WW point, eggs are zero, my Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel seasoning is zero, and my avocado is spread thinly and only about 1/4 of an avocado or less so I count it as 2 points. It’s a nice filling 3 point snack. I also tell myself it’s the healthy fat from an avocado! Are you a fan of avocado toast? I feel like such a hipster!
I love buffalo chicken! Do you like it? I have been having grilled chicken with Frank’s hot sauce, blue cheese dressing that is light – love Bolthouse Farms, and celery. I have also made salads and below you will see the buffalo chicken quesadilla I made on a low carb tortilla that is only 1 WW point.
O.k., I found out I don’t like the chocolate flavor, but this vanilla is the bomb.com! I’m continuing to use it daily to make an iced coffee with just half of a carton for 1 point. It saves a point and it saves money by only using half of a carton a day.
This is an old recipe below, but it is zero points! You take a can of fat free refried beans, about a cup of salsa, and about a half packet of taco seasoning. Heat it up on the stove or in the microwave and it makes a delicious bean dip or a burrito filling. I’m having it here with Good Thins sea salt flavor which taste like a corn tortilla chip.
Here is a very low point southwest salad below that is delicious!
And, lastly a favorite was this Facebook memory of our favorite bagel place by our house that went out of business. The boys loved it so much and we went there at least once a week. This was after singing in church on a Sunday. My boys were blondies until late elementary school!
Happy Friday to all! What were your favorites this week? The first week back after break is always rough on the system!
