Food Prep!

I did it!  I actually prepped food for the week and tried a new recipe!

I feel so accomplished today.

I saw a recipe posted on A Cup of Jo last week for baked blueberry oatmeal and it looked amazingggggggg, so I figured I have to try it.

Look at Jo’s blog if you want an appetizing image. My food photog skills definitely need work.

Verdict: it IS amazing.  I tweaked it a little to make it more Weight Watchers friendly (used almonds instead of pecans, didn’t add the maple syrup) and it came out to about 8 points per serving (the recipe made 6 for me).  I portioned it out into tupperware containers so I have an easy grab and go breakfast for the week.

I also took some time to make zucchini marinara.  I put diced tomatoes, onions, spinach, and zucchini into a pot and let it simmer for a little while, adding some garlic and some parsley.  It’s perfect to use on pasta, but sometimes I put it on eggs if I want a breakfast for dinner meal.

I did all of that while watching Breaking Bad, so needless to say…it was an excellent end to an excellent weekend.

Any other new recipes I should try?
