Thanks to everyone who commented on my 250,000 page view giveaway! By the looks of it, I am not alone in the love of all things pizza! And there were some very interesting combinations I think I need to try – soon!
Lucky 13 Won!
I think I might be even more obsessed with pizza than you….I could eat it everyday, no joke! I’d love to win this giveaway, as I’d love to try out the deep dish pan!

I LOVED yesterdays breakfast!! I had half of a baked potato left over from the night before. I scooped out most of the potato, and then scrambled black beans, egg beaters and baby spinach with salt and pepper. Then I stuffed the pepper half and put a .8 slice of pepper cheese on top, and put it in the microwave.
Here’s what it looks like cut open!
This was so filling and delicious! You may be seeing lots of variations of this in the near future! And yep, still have blackberries on the side – I’ve been lucky that my store has been selling them for .99 a pint, and I can never pass that up!
Do you ever have one of those days where you are looking in your fridge, you don’t really want what you’ve planned, but not sure what to put together?? I give you then, the plate of lots of things! One slice deli ham, one slice roasted turkey, 1 ounce New York style garlic chips (very garlicy and delicious!!), grilled zucchini left over from last night, red pepper, cucumbers and baby carrots drizzled with 2 tablespoons fat free dressing. Oh, and four hot peppers!
It was delicious – a little bit of everything and it took me a long time to eat! I did end up having an afternoon snack, I need to bring almonds back into my diet – they are known to help lower cholesterol, and while I am on medication for it, every little bit helps, right?!
I had defrosted bone in chicken breasts for dinner. My sister is afraid of bones in food, but they help retain the moisture so well – it’s really hard to overcook! On the side I decided to pull my spaetzle maker out – Hannah absolutely loved it, she had some when she got home. I joked that when she moves out, I’ll make sure she has a spaetzle maker – so easy!
Let the batter sit 10 minutes while the water comes to a boil. These literally take about 2-3 minutes at tops. Drain until your ready to use, then Pam fry right before serving.
With grilled broccoli and half a chicken breast. I ended up eating half of what was on my plate – about 4 ounces of chicken.
You guys are going to love my lunch today . . .but you’ll have to come back tomorrow for the recipe!! I made a macaroni and cheese soup with brocoli – holy moly is it good!! Best part? The star of the show was Cabot cheese!
While you guys know that I go on and on about my love of the 75% reduced fat cheese, I have never seen the hot habanero before! So the recipe I came up with was 3 cups of cheese, so I subbed 1/2 cup of the hot habanero and that was the perfect amount of flavorful heat – best part too is the nutrition – around 350 for 1.5 cups! Don’t you love how I tease you like that?!
I also forgot to mention that we have a new hostess in town for BSI this week – she chose artichokes! Thanks for hosting this week Kim!

And I am glad I am not the only one who isn’t a morning person!! But I realize the only way that can happen is that once the alarm goes off, just get out of bed. Don’t put your head back down at that pillow! I laid my head back down today and the next thing I knew, it was 30 minutes later. So I woke up at 6:30 instead of 6:00 – I still don’t have to leave my house until 8:30 to get to work on time!
So, yoga it is today – I have time for a 30 minute routine!
Who watched Biggest Loser last night?? I swear, every time Oneal and Sunshine get together, I cry like a baby!
Make today a great one!
