I was feeding Lilah this afternoon when I heard two helicopters over the house. I knew they were on their way to the airport. I whisked the baby out of her high chair and we dashed to the car. We drove towards Ally’s General Store where I knew everyone would gather to see the motorcade. Unfortunately we missed it by 2 minutes.
Normally this particular road isn’t very busy even in the summer but not today. At least when Lilah is older she will proudly be able to say “When I was one year old I missed seeing the president” They are going to be here for 10 days so maybe we will see them. I actually am more interested in photographing the hordes who come to see the President.
- breakfast sandwich 5 points
- coffee 2 points
- yogurt 1 point
- bites of Lilah’s supper: I am giving myself 1 point though I doubt it is even that much. She has a hummus sandwich on Naan bread with avocado. I, at least had to taste it.
- Supper: I cooked a new WW recipe that wasn’t bad but it needs some work. I had it with a new flatbread called FlatOut. This stuff is great at two points. You can make sandwiches and even pizza which I am going to try. 14 for the recipe because I had two servings and 2 for the flatbread. I actually think the recipe should be 6 points because I used Fiber One cottage cheese which is less than the regular.
- snack: Smart Ones peanut butter sunday 3 points
- snack: lentil chips and cottage cheese 3
- Vita brownie and whipped cream 2
Total 33 points so I will deduct 3 from my 35 extra points
|Beef and Vegetable Cheese Casserole
INSTRUCTIONS1 spray(s) cooking spray
2 medium tomato(es), sliced
2 medium zucchini, sliced
12 oz raw lean ground beef
1 large onion(s), finely chopped
2 medium garlic clove(s), minced
1 cup(s) canned tomato sauce
2 cup(s) fat-free cottage cheese
1 large egg yolk(s)
1/2 cup(s) low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp parsley, oregano or rosemary, chopped
1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste
Bake until very hot and bubbling around edges, about 35 minutes. Cut into six equal pieces and serve immediately. (Note: If preparing casserole in advance and freezing it, make sure to thaw it completely in the refrigerator before baking it. Increase the baking time by 5 to 10 minutes.)
The recipe definitely needs work. One serving for me wasn’t enough. Fortunately I didn’t have lunch so I was able to have two servings. Next time I would layer in more vegetables and season the ground beef. Sarah and I both think it is worth trying again with the changes.
