Eats for Wednesday 3/2/11

The start of another week of Fat Fighting!

I had every intention of making lunch today. Either my low cal recipe for couscous jambalaya or a nice bowl of WW baked potato soup.

But, nooooooo.

MB and I ran some errands and we happened to be near this little restaurant we love. It just so happens that this restaurant serves a chicken chorizo etouffee that is heavenly.

Seriously. The mere mention of it and I forgot what baked potato soup even was.

Hell, I forgot where I was and started drooling right then and there.

The etouffee itself is 12 points total. However, I can never finish it in one sitting. So, I end up with two 6 point portions. Not too bad.

Today, we ordered the guacamole as an appetizer. That isn't too bad either according to my WW points book.

The etouffee is also chocked full of veggies, which is good.

Yeah, I ate out. But, I made good choices and stayed within my points. Then, I came home and walked.

The week is off to a decent start.
