New recipe

Breakfast has to be my favorite meal of the day, but today I felt like eating a non-breakfast. So, I had a Trader Joe's chicken burger on an Arnold's Sandwich Thin with turkey bacon, spinach, tomato and ketchup. An awesome 6 point breakfast.

All day I waited to make dinner. I love when I have a new recipe to try! I made the Big Batch Bulgur chili recipe from Just Sweet Enough (<--- click there for the kick-ass recipe). In the interest of full disclosure I stumbled upon the recipe and Sweetie Pie's blog from Marisa :)

I made a few tweeks - which is rare because I am a very nervous cook and tend to follow recipes to the letter! But my husband begged me to put some ground turkey in the chili, and to omit the jalapeno. He hates spicy food! I also had a zucchini that needed to be used to I tossed that in there. When he saw the recipe has pumpkin in it, he was nervous......

But we both decided this is two thumbs up, and we will be making it on the regular. Thanks Sweetie Pie!!

And here is my dinner. Chili over a few sweet potato fries, a little lf cheese & lf sour cream and on TJ's suggestion, made some chips from the 2 for 1 point corn tortillas! They were amazing.

Thanks to all my new blogger friends for giving me such great, on 'point' (lol) recipes!

I am off to read a new blog, Katie J Is On Her Way, and then heading to bed early so I make my 5:45 Fitness Bootcamp.



  1. Oh that bulgar chili is the BOMB! I love that! :) Glad to have helped out with the chips :)

  2. I'm so glad you liked the chili!! Thanks for posting about it. I might be due for a batch myself!

    I'm definitely looking forward to reading more of your blog. I hope you have as much fun with yours as I have had with mine!
