Blue Cheese Dip

Well, it's 8:02, the kids are in bed, and my husband is out of town. For those of you that know me know what that means.  I get to go to bed now too!!! So no stories tonight just what I ate and a YUMMY recipe for you. I hope you enjoy it.

Counting every bite today:

Breakfast -
- Egg sandwich on a sandwich flat with a fat free slice of cheese (5 points)

Lunch -

My mom gave me this recipe.  Since I don't know were she got it from I will give her credit for it.  Thanks Mom.

Dinner -
- Leftover rice, chicken and veggie stir fry.  Bob made it so I don't know the recipe to share it.  Sorry maybe one day I will have him write it down for us because it is super good. He makes this teriyaki sauce from a recipe we got in Hawaii and puts it on the stir fry. Yum! (8 points)

Not bad! Ending the day with a total of 25 points!  Good night all.  Sweet dreams!

So what did you bite today?


  1. Can't wait to try Mom's dip...don't you love the availability of all the greek yogurts?!?
    Hardly thought about eating/binging yesterday while preparing for yardsale. Today's off on the wrong foot. Already broke Rule #1(eating at computer) & #2(noshing at counter). Still time to get on track...

    GRRR...this site harder to navigate than FB!!! Can't add photo, now can't sign in using real name, despise word verifications...

    1. Greek yogurt is still kind of new to me. I have only tried the plain so far but am loving all the different things I can do with it. I no longer use sour cream, greek yogurt is used instead.
      It is early...lots of time to get back on track. I now always have veggies cut up and this dip in my fridge. That way when I want something I grab that. I brought the dip to my work yesterday and everyone was loving it. They were putting it on their salads and dipping bread into it.
      Sorry the site is hard to navigate. For what I do with it, it has been very friendly to me. I wonder why you can add a photo?
      Good luck with the rest of your day. Enjoy the yardsale if it is still going on.
