Last Week would turn out to be . . .AWFUL! Seriously. I was kinda excited to put together the salad with butternut squash in it. I roasted the squash and taste tested it - it was yummy! We all sat down at lunch and I started eating the salad . . .the combination of everything or maybe it was just the dressing . . .just tasted terrible. The rest of the week I either ate what the kids ate or ate left overs. I also made the pumpkin "muffins" but as I was making them I realized they were really little cheesecakes, which was fine, until I tasted one. Icky. I did not like the taste at all - it probably didn't help that I used plain yogurt instead of vanilla and plain pumpkin instead of pumpkin butter of pie filling so it was tangy and not sweet! I resorted to Chocolate Milk and/or cereal all week. Oh well! I never did make my spinach dip - which I actually really like, but it just didn't happen this week.
So, lets try this again. I plan on making Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins to have for breakfast. I'm hoping for much more success with these little sweeties! They are 5 points each and I'm planning to make them up on Sunday evening so they are ready to go on Monday morning.
For lunch, I'm going to make up a batch of Baked Potato Soup on Monday and have it for lunch Monday-Thursday. It is 5 points for 1 cups and makes 5 servings - but I think I'll probably have 1 1/4 cups for lunch. On Friday, we are having Grilled Cheese and Soup - and that sounds really good! Along with the soup, I plan on making up some Bruscheeta-with-tomato-and-basil to have on some bread rounds with the soup. They are 1 point each so I'll plan on having 4-5 with my soup which will give me about 10 or 11 points for lunch.
I'm hoping for much more success this week than I had last week!
