Using up the Rhubarb

For breakfast this morning, I had a bowl of oatmeal with a bunch of strawberries that were about to go bad, along with a glass of milk for 7 points.

Before signing in to work, I made an iced latte for 2 points.

For my first break, I had an apple with peanut butter for 3 points.

Hubby has Friday’s off for a while. So he had lunch ready for me today. I had 2 extra lean grilled hot dogs on light bread with reduced fat peanut butter for 6 points.

For dessert, I had banana soft serve- I also added a little hot fudge for 1 point.

I got off of work a couple of hour early today for working late another day- so that was very nice!

We had a lot of rhubarb to try and use up, so I got to baking. I miss baking! I haven’t had a lot of extra time to bake- so today was the perfect time. I’m looking forward to baking and cooking more this summer.

First, I made a rhubarb cheesecake.

And then I made rhubarb jam- which is actually more like Rhubarb syrup.

After that I ate 1/2 cup of grapes for 0 points.

And then I made some banana bread.

I had to sample a piece of the cheesecake, of course! But I will not be eating much of this because it is 6 points for just a small piece! Good thing hubby likes it a lot better than I do! He appreciates it when I do some cooking and baking.

And then it was time to run a few errands. We got some groceries and did a little shopping. My brother arrived for his weekend visit!

We started out with sushi- it was absolutely phenomenal at this place! I ate 6 rolls- it was just so good! We went to a Japanese restaurant, so first we were served Miso soup. Second, we had this delicious little salad with a ginger type dressing on it. And the main course was fried rice, noodles, and veggies and I chose Hibachi Chicken. By that time, I wasn’t very hungry! I am estimating my points at 19 points. I am happy with how much I ate- I stopped when I was full, but this type of food is just pretty high in points! I brought home lot of leftovers! I thoroughly enjoyed it though and I’m still within my weekly points! Smile

We came home and my brother and I spent the evening singing. We used to like to sing when I lived at home. We’re kind of nerds. lol But it’s fun! We found karaoke on YouTube and we recorded ourselves and had a lot of fun. Maybe one of these days we’ll get a good recording and I’ll share it with you. Winking smile But mostly it was us giggling and being silly.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pictures last night!! But we’re looking forward to a good weekend! Have a great one!
