Pork and Peas

My day of food started with a simple bowl of Quaker Weight Control oatmeal with half (about a 2x3) piece of banana bread crumbled on top. I enjoyed 2 cups of coffee also.

We just stayed here because of some sickies in the house. Caroline has an ear infection or something that is making her sleeping all wonky. Becca has been waking up with some congestion and a cough.

Anyway, back to food. We couldn't go a New Year's day without pork. Christopher picked up a pound of pork from Jim N Nicks bbq. I cooked black eyed peas and also made yummy Cowboy Cavier or black eyed pea salsa. I tweaked it a little from the recipe I had gotten but it turned out great. If I figured it correctly it was about 1 point for a cup! Yum! I enjoyed it with some baked tortilla chips.

1/2 cup of black eyed pea salsa
1 oz of baked tortilla chips

1/2 cup of black eyed peas
2 oz of bbq pork
Spinach salad (this counts as greens, right?) with 5 croutons crumbled on top and 1 Tbsp of Caesar dressing

Supper I had 1 oz of baked tortillas
1/2 cup of black eyed pea salsa
3 oz bbq pork

I met my LTG at Starbucks and enjoyed a Grande nonfat Mocha Latte and a vanilla almond biscotti. No pictures, I left my camera at home.

Until tomorrow. Goodnight!
