Mangolicious Blueberry Waffles

This recipe was delicious!  We always eat breakfast at the apartment together on Saturday mornings.  Whether it’s making it or bringing food back to the apartment, it’s just nice to eat together.

Here is what you need:

1 cup of TJ’s Mangolicious Frozen Fruit. (It’s a mix of blueberries, raspberries and mangos mmmmmm!)

2 TJ’s blueberry waffles

1 tablespoon frozen Cool Whip Free

Heat 1 cup of mangolicious mix in the microwave for about 1 min, 15 seconds

toast waffles to your liking

add a tablespoon of Cool Whip Free to your plate at the end

I made two servings with the mangolicious for the husband and I.  So that is 1/2 cup per two waffles.

WW points: 5 (I ate a couple extra pieces of the husbands mango too!)

 Side note: Check out the pretty daffodils!  These popped up in less than 24 hours 🙂

Fresh fruit snack

In honor of today being a “snacky type day,” I decided to cut up some kiwi and add a little tangerine and three strawberries.  I wanted some protein while I continued to clean so I add 1/4 cup no fat cottage cheese.

It was delicious for two points!  I decided to eat another 1/4 cup of cottage cheese since it was one point for 1/4 and 1 point for 1/2 cup!

What was I thinking?

Ok the challenge is over.  I couldn’t take it anymore.  I was supposed to not go grocery shopping for 5 weeks.  Well…

Fruit goes bad!  I can’t live without fresh fruit so I had to go today.  I made it about 2 weeks without shopping for that.   I have been trying to save money by buying in bulk and it has worked until the fruit ran out.  So the moral of that story is…

If you wanna save money on groceries, buy meat and fish in bulk and fresh fruit every one or two weeks.  I bought frozen fruit, but it isn’t as easy to get to.  I don’t want to wait for the fruit to thaw.  I’d rather go for fresh fruit than frozen anyday.

Things have been busy and sad over here lately.   With the death of the husband’s grandma, the visitation, and the funeral, I have been super sad.  It’s time to move on though.  She would want us to be happy and that’s how I’m going to be!

On a good note, the scale said I am down another pound this morning.  We’ll see how much I really weigh at WI tomorrow.  This is my second plateau of my WW journey and I am ready to push through it to goal.

I went to Food Lion today to get drinks and then TJ’s to get lots of yummy fruit!  I am glad the husband likes fresh fruit too!  I need to get more healthy stuff in the boy 🙂

While at TJ’s I saw Daffodil bulbs on sale.  They were only $1.99 I wanna say and they will definately perk up things around here.  It’s such a sunny and beautiful day out!  I hear there is going to be some rain this weekend.  Booooo…

I haven’t had a chance to eat breakfast yet because I have been so busy.  I think today is going to be a snacky day and then dinner tonight.  We are going to eat in tonight or tomorrow night since we have eaten out a lot this week due to us being busy bees!

I leave you with a pic of my new plant!  I’m off to clean!

Tis A Sad Day

So the husband’s grandma didn’t make it as expected. We are going to the visitation tomorrow night and the funeral services are on Thursday.

Hopefully I will be posting on a happier note later on this week. Please keep us in your prayers 🙂
