Dinner In Advance

No time for a fancy snack since I had to run little daughter to dance. I ended up bringing this bar with me to eat in the car...




This is the best Kashi bar, well, bars -there are actually 2 in the pack. The flavor is mellow, but tastes great. A good 3 POINT treat.



Since tonight is a late night with dance class, I made dinner earlier in the afternoon so it would be ready for when we dashed in. I'm trying to use up some of the things in the fridge and freezer before they expire. We had some ham and salami that was about to go, so I used it to make strombolis for the husband and daughters. I decided on some chili for myself. I got creative by using these instead of ground beef or turkey...





I had these in the freezer and I must say that I do not love these. I have tried them twice so far and they have not impressed me. They are really bland and weird in texture. But, I decided to reinvent them one last time by crumbling them up for chili with onion, green and red peppers, canned tomatoes, chili powder and some kidney beans. I let it simmer for a bit til the flavors came together. I had a bowl of it topped with 1 oz. Cabot 75% Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese and a side of carrot sticks. And I couldn't resist having a slice of the stomboli! I guess that took the place of my brownie dessert tonight!!



No, I can't miss dessert 2 nights in a row! I ended the day of eats the same way I started -with a Vitatop! I had my good old standby - Deep Chocolate Vitatop with PB2...


Gotta love a decadent dessert that's only 2 POINTS!

Off to do some weights - gotta hit my 45 min. -a -day exercise goal!

Have a good night =)

Where do you buy the kashi bars? I'd love to try one but have never seen them at the supermarkets.
