I’ve talked a lot about how much I love my no rise pizza dough. You just mix it, roll it and bake it. I made some dough the other day and I’ve come to a conclusion. The longer it sits (up to a week) in the refrigerator, the better it gets. When I woke up yesterday morning I planned on making a carrot and cilantro soup for our work lunch. I was grabbing the carrots when I saw the dough and put it on the counter for about a half hour.
The soup recipe sounded so good – and healthy – two cups for only 5 points. The only problem? Um, it tasted like jarred baby food. Nothing I did brought it back around, so luckily I had some buffalo chicken chili in the deep freeze and immediately went to plan B and put some potatoes in the oven and decided we would have chili baked potatoes instead. 😀
So I rolled out the dough, put some sauce on it, sliced up some red and yellow peppers and then added 3/4 of an ounce of the cranberry chipotle cheese Tony brought me the other day. As I was taking it out of the oven, I realized the only thing breakfast about this pizza was that I was eating pizza for breakfast! I consider the peppers to be a veggie serving though. 😀 My “breakfast” pizza comes in at 10 points.
At the gym I did the StairMaster on level 10, for 35 minutes. Holy cow I was a sweaty mess after that – I did the “interval” setting, so you never know how fast its going to go. I did have to pause it a couple times to catch my breath. I did 105 floors. 😀
So here is our Plan B lunch – an 8 ounce baked potato, 1/2 cup of my buffalo chicken chili and more of the cranberry chipotle cheese – its so good! Lunch is 10 points.
So why the title of my post? Big changes on the work front. I wish I could go into detail, but let’s just say my office is a sinking ship. While there is a rescue boat for me (which is a good thing) the boat isn’t able to save everyone I am afraid. The changes will be swift and its going to get pretty ugly the next couple of weeks, but hopefully I’ll make it to dry land in one piece.
I am proud that with all the stress going on, I haven’t gone off plan this week! No “my blood sugar is low” pieces of chocolate, french fries, etc. Well, I did have a few glasses of wine last night, but I guess that’s to be expected with everything going on. 😀
I had some chicken breasts that needed to be cooked up. While I really felt like ordering a pizza, we grilled some chicken. I used one of my grilling sauces our friends gave me for my birthday last month. This is so good! Thanks D&D! 😀
