Empty Nesters

The husband and I feel like empty nesters. The daughters are spending a couple of days with their grandparents - it's so weird without them! You tend to get into certain routines when the kids are around, so when they're gone it's different. No rushing around. It's kinda relaxing. And we sure do love the uninterrupted night sleep! Little daughter still wakes up in the night - we're hoping she will outgrow this by age 16! Anyway, on to the food...

I woke up, headed to the treadmill for a lame-o run (my heart just wasn't in it) for 30 min. and then had a leisurely breakfast of apple cranberry bread and a sliced pear for 3 Points...



Then the husband and I went grocery shopping. The husband would rather stick hot pokers in his eyes than go grocery shopping, but he wanted to spend our "empty nest" day together doing things! The deal was that he could come only if he promised to "be good" because, frankly, I would rather stick hot pokers in MY eyes than have him shop with me!! He promised to be on best behavior, so together we went. On our lovely excursion in Trader Joe's ( the most crowded place in the universe), I came upon these guys...


Well, you know I am all about the chips! The nutritionals were great: 38 crisps are 120 cal, 3 gr. fat and 1 gr. fiber = 2 Points. Sold!

When we got home, I put the Sea Salt and Pepper Rice Crisps to work on my plate (huge serving - I like that!) with a Cedarlane Beans,Rice and Cheese Burrito (I mentioned these before -so awesome!) and some leftover roasted cauliflower with a little cheese. A non-colorful plate of yumminess for 8 Points...


Not sure if I'll have a snack this afternoon; I ate lunch late and we are headed to my parents for dinner and to pick up the "birdies". I'll bring a bar with me, just in case. Don't want to overeat tonight because I plan on going to my WW meeting tomorrow morning. I know it won't be pretty, but I don't want to add any more ugliness to what will surely be my weigh-in tomorrow!
Be back later...
