Good Friday afternoon y’all! I have worked hard this week because I ate like it was my last weekend on earth during our Orlando trip. I am exhausted but I have done well and hopefully the damage is reversible. I didn’t weigh this week so I could give myself time. I’m weighing next Friday, the third. The goal next week will be to weigh a little less than the last time I weighed. I am hoping to get back to my lowest weight in a couple of weeks so I can start losing again. If I hide my tummy, you can’t really tell that I’m up 4 or 5 pounds but when I’m getting out of the shower and I see the giant mirror in my bathroom, I can tell, and I’m over it.
The recipe this week a recipe from Hungry Girl called Great Garlic Miracle Mashies. I wanted to explore the world of mashed potatoes that included cauliflower. The recipe called for roasted garlic and gave instructions on that. I think you put whole cloves in aluminum foil and then roast them in the oven for at least 40 minutes. I’m sure that would have been delicious but I’m lazy, so I just used minced garlic. Take one medium russet potato and five cups of cauliflower, boiled and softened, half and half (I used fat free milk which is why they were a little too watery), low fat butter spread, salt and pepper and mash it all together. It had good flavor because I loaded it with salt, pepper and garlic and it was pretty filling. I didn’t notice anything weird due to the cauliflower. I think it’d be a good side dish, for sure.
I wanted to show you a new snack today. These are Pepperidge Farm Baked Naturals Cracker Chips, Simply Cheddar MULTI-GRAIN. You can have 26 of these in a serving for a couple weight watchers points. You can have 13-1/2 for one point. They have a nice taste to them and are a good little snack for work. I highly recommend them.
The rest of the pictures are from our weekend at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando. We got to go to the Islands of Adventure which had Seuss Landing (loved it), a superhero land and others. It was a great time. We ate too much and had a fantastic time! I can’t wait to go again one day!
Have a good weekend, bye!
