So this weekend has probably my best yet but I still feel like I could have done better
I made out good on Friday. I ended up winning 50/50 at work and took home $50 so I decided to take Scott out to supper on Friday and we hit up Swiss Chalet. I ordered the Santa Fe Chicken Sandwich with a baked potato for a side. YUM! Have any of you Canadian gals tried this? So good! We also had Chicken Spring rolls for an appetizer but they were supper small and mostly had veggies in them. We skipped on dessert and opted for a flavored coffee at Java Moose instead. We almost talked ourselves into getting a brownie to split but ended up making the right decision and just took the coffees. That was basically our Friday night, we spent a few hours shopping so I was on my feet all night. I did have a small run in with Baked Doritos at the end of the night but only 4 pts worth so no big deal there!
Saturday was a bit of a different story. We had our usual breakfast and then decided to save up as many points as possible for the birthday party we were going to. It was our Goddaughter's birthday and pizza and cake was on the menu. Luckily I offered to bring Caesar salad with me so I heaped that on my plate before adding any pizza and I ended up only eating 1.5 pieces of pizza (compared to Scott's 6 pieces!!) I also used fat free Caesar dressing and no one even noticed the difference! Then came the cake.......Randi was right....I couldn't resist. BUT I didn't take a huge piece and I shared it with Scott so we did alright. The real kicker came when we got home and we decided it would be an AWESOME idea to make Nachos for supper! Not the best idea right but that's what flex points are for!! They were darn good too!
Sunday was a bit of a challenge but I was determined to pull through and stay OP. First up we had a course that we are taking together and someone decided to bring Chocolate chip cookies for a snack (instead of the veggie tray we had last week!) I totally wanted one but declined (TWICE!) when they came around to me. YAY for me! THEN after the course I was meeting my friend in town for a day of shopping and forgot to grab something at home for lunch. I was surrounded by fast food restaurants and decided to just get a small chili from Wendy's. Filling AND low in points. Another YAY for me! THEN after supper (Tomato Sup and grilled cheese sandwiches, my FAV) Scott wanted me to come with him to the store to get milk so I hoped in the car (Fully decked out in Christmas pajama bottoms, crocs, and Scott's Old Navy sweater) and once we got there Scott started in with the treats. But since I wasn't going in looking as ridiculous as I did, I said None for me!! I totally wanted a Mars bar but opted for a Banana-Vanilla milkshake at home instead! Nice! I ended up being under in points yesterday because the shake filled me up so much!
How was your weekend??
Now, on to my toy. I inherited a bread maker yesterday from my MIL. I've always wanted to try to make homemade bread but have always been WAY too scared to. My Mom isn't a huge bread maker so it's not something she ever really taught me to do (that and she lives 12 hours away from me so when we get together, making bread isn't a high priority). How hard can it be when you have a machine that does it all for you right? So if any of you ladies have any yummy recipes, bring em on!! I invited my brother and his wife over for supper on Saturday. Scott's making a pot of chili and I'm making homemade bread AND the Chocolate Peanut Butter parfaits that you'll find in this month's WW magazine!! Mmmmm
PS I've also heard that bread is easy to mess up, and if anyone's going to mess it up, it would be me. So any tips or tricks you ladies have would be great!
