hi everyone! happy hump day ;)
last night i was pleasantly surprised when my boyfriend offered to cook me dinner! he knows i'm obsessed with the food network and over the past few months i've surprised him with some delicious and low fat meals. i think it's adorable that he wants to start cooking too.
D (my boyfriend) is an amazing guy. we met when we worked at a mexican restaurant together. he was a bartender and i was a cocktail waitress/server. i thought he was so cute and one day we worked a shift together and hit it off. he's 6'1, tall, dark and so handsome. i love him so much, but i will stop gushing. anyway, we will have been together 2 years in october. he's my age, 24. we're two days apart (awwww) and he treats me like a princess. i can't wait to marry him one day. we're moving in together next year, at which point we will also be purchasing an english bulldog. i can't wait!
i've been wanting one forever. even though they're kind of ugly i think they are so endearing and adorable. okay, back on topic now...
on monday night i made him boca burger meatless tacos. yum! have you had the boca burger meat? it's delicious. it cost $2.99, has three packs of meat in it and all you do is heat it up. i added some taco powder and water to it and it was ready in under 5 minutes.
i served it with garlic & herb la tortilla factory tortillas. 50 calories each. YUM! we also used sliced avocado, salsa, reduced fat mexican cheese, and fat free sour cream. he loved them and i would say they were about 3-5 points a piece depending on how much cheese you put on it. the boca burger meat is 1pt a serving a believe.
so last night he asked me to come over, told me not to bring anything and he would cook for me! it was adorable. he even baked mushroom bites in the oven. he didn't make them homemade, they were frozen but they were delicious. the entree was whole wheat pasta. he followed the recipe, but asked for help with the veggies. i showed him how to chop up the onions (ala rachel ray) and crack open the garlic. the pasta sauce was homemade: tomato sauce, garlic, onions, EVOO, white beans & turkey pepperoni. he got the recipe from a 10k run website so i think thats why the beans were in there. I went easy on the beans with my portion and instead added more turkey pepperoni.
turkey pepperoni. 20 slices = 80 calories! & so yummy!
it was served with red wine, it was perfect. then we watched big brother 8. i am officially obsessed and i love that it comes on 3x a week. i was so happy when daniele won the power of veto! i can't stand that jen girl. she needs to get the boot!
oh! one more product find: lays baked light chips: barbeque
i love these, you can have 20 chips for 75 calories. YUMYUM!! if you don't dig olean though, these may not be the chips for you. olean has never given me any problems though.
i'm going to try to make it to the gym today but i have a lot of meetings. if i don't make it, i will try to get a walk in tonight if it doesn't rain. TOTM is right around the corner and i am feeling lazy!
didn't weigh in this morning. probably around 134 due to PMS cravings...i need to get my rear in gear so that i can at least be a decent competitor for katie @ sister skinny!
