A Short Friday and Yoplait Fiber One Blueberry Yogurt Prize Pack Winner

It was a cold, cold morning here in Iowa. Good thing I didn’t have to leave the house! Hubby did though. He made sure to let his truck warm up! BRRR!
I couldn’t decide what I wanted for breakfast. And then I remembered the Frozen Steel Cut Brown Sugar & Maple Oats from Trader Joe’s. I heated those up and sliced a banana on top and also drank 1 cup of 1% milk for 7 points. Also, I pictured my multi-vitamin that I take every morning- I don’t usually show that!
I’ve noticed a very peculiar thing that I do when I eat. I eat all of the things that I don’t like as much first and save the things that I do like a lot for last. Now I do like both steel cut oats and bananas- but this morning, I realized I had done the same thing with my breakfast! I ate all of the steel cut oats and pushed the bananas to the side for last- how weird. Do you do that? lol
And then it was time to work. We were pretty busy today!
For my first break, I had 1/2 serving of TJ’s whole grain crackers with 2 Tbs. Roasted red pepper hummus for 3 points.
I also had an apple with PB for 3 points.
For lunch, I planned ahead and put a couple of small potatoes in the oven so they were baked by lunch time. I topped them with steamed broccoli and 2% shredded cheddar for a delicious 7 point lunch!
For dessert, I had 1/2 cup Dannon Light and Fit vanilla yogurt with 1/2 cup blueberries for 1 point.
I had some scheduled time off this afternoon so I didn’t have to work much longer after lunch!
A little while later, I was craving something sweet so I had a Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate bar with caramel for 2 points.
I worked on frosting the cupcakes for the get together tonight. Have you ever seen frosting in a squirt bottle can? Pillsbury makes some called Easy Frost and so I picked up a bottle of it yesterday. This stuff is amazing! It’s easy and mess free! Plus, my cupcakes turned out pretty!
I have 11 points left for the day. I will definitely be using some weekly points tonight. I think they’re ordering pizza- which isn’t usually points friendly unless they happen to order thin crust. But I will eat with moderation and enjoy it.
I hope you all have fantastic weekends! I’m not sure what recipe I’m going to be posting this weekend- have you seen something I’ve made that you would like the recipe for? Let me know! I need some ideas!
