More Balls

January 10, 2017

You guys, it’s hard to come up with a blog post title every…single…day. I’m not that clever. Sometimes, I just gotta call it what it is.

After posting my blog yesterday, Bird Balls, I received a reminder text from my doctor’s office that I had an appointment at 10:40 a.m. Thank goodness for all of the things that we can do with our cell phones! I had completely forgotten about it, so my 9:00 a.m. Hot Yoga class didn’t happen, but I did get in a 3 mile walk outside in the afternoon.

I had planned to pick up some paint color samples to bring home. Yeah, that didn’t happen either. Here’s what did happen. After my appointment (just an annual thing), I went through the car wash, drove 1/2 mile when a gazillion (I am not exaggerating) birds flew over and about 10 of them pooped on my clean car! At least the sun roof wasn’t open. 

I drove home in my poopy car. I spent a large part of the afternoon on the phone. I attempted to finalize an insurance disaster, I scheduled a mammogram, I made an appointment to take my car to the shop, I made a hair appointment and I scheduled a massage that Mike bought me for Christmas. The next several days are booked! After my walk, I cranked up the tunes and played in the kitchen with another new Chicken recipe. 

I found a recipe for Chicken Veggie Poppers, or…Chicken Veggie Balls, the other day and it looked like something I thought we should try.

These are packed full of Zucchini and Carrots. Each one is only one SmartPoint. These have dill in them and I’m not a huge dill fan, but Mike is and he really liked these. These could make a great party snack! 

What new recipes are you trying?

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast – 6 SP

Two Eggs, Banana and 2 tsp Almond Butter.

Pretty simple. Cook eggs in pepper rings in skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat with lid on pan. These were crispy on the bottom with a runny yolk.


Snack – 3 SP

Un-Pictured Tall Latte with Coconut Milk

I’m staying away from sugar for the month. Like NO SUGAR. No artificial sweeteners, nothing. Reading all labels. No sugar. After ordering this drink, I thought about the fact that I didn’t really know what the ingredients were in the Starbucks coconut milk. I Googled “Starbucks Coconut Milk Nutritional Information and Ingredients”. Cane Sugar. Ooops.


Lunch – 6 SP

Leftover Bird Balls and Marinara over Spaghetti Squash


Snack – 7 SP

Un-Pictured Blueberry RXBar

Okay, I’ve been doing good not over indulging in these, but I might need to put them out of sight for a few days.


Dinner – 15 SP

Chicken Veggie Poppers, un-pictured Dill Mayo for dipping, White Sweet Potato Wedges (plus a few more), Salad

Daily SmartPoints Total = 37

    Thanks Nancy. You’ve been a reader long enough now that you know I’m a bit silly most of the time.


  2. Sorry I don’t spend a lot of time on your title–just the writing below and the thought of the day.
    This was supposed to be encouraging.
    It’s the encouraging words you share.
    Well at least I hope you have a good day.
