Online, on the phone and in the kitchen


As I said earlier, I spent most of the day on the phone or running errands. When I wasn’t doing that, I was online.

I did, however, find time to make myself a healthy dinner (after
getting Subway for lunch).
Dinner was a turkey sandwich (2 oz. turkey, FF Miracle whip and honey mustard on a Sandwich Thin) and zucchini fries (a whole zucchini cut into spears, tossed with 2 tsp. honey mustard and 1 tsp. olive oil, then coated with 1/3 cup Fiber One crumbs and baked for about 18 minutes). I also steamed the last of the veggies from Sunday’s salad, which had been marinating in oil and balsamic vinegar. (Not the lettuce, but the carrots, broccoli and snap peas.)
I shot a photo of the fries, which were inspired by Hungry Girl. I don’t know if she has a recipe for something similar, because this

is one I made up myself — but it was definitely sparked by HG’s love of Fiber One.
A couple of hours after dinner, I made a peppermint milkshake with my Magic Bullet. I love that thing. It was a Christmas gift from my roommate several years ago, and while I don’t use it as often as the infomercial says, I do use it a lot. (Used it twice tonight — once to make the Fiber One crumbs and once for the shake. Mmm.)
The shake, which weighs in at 2 Points, was easy to make: just 1/2 cup Breyer’s Free vanilla ice cream, 1/4 cup skim milk and half a candy cane. It might not be as thick and rich as a DQ peppermint Blizzard, but it also has a heck a lot fewer calories!
Don’t ask why the photo is sideways. Apparently I have to change that in my photo editing program, not here in the blog.

  1. Those DQ Peppermint Blizzards are my favourite. thank god they only come around once a year. I will have to try that in my Magic Bullet. Just might hit the spot. Perhaps peppermint extract will work once the canes are all gone.
