Sweet Potato Hash and Weekly WI

When Tony and I went out to eat the other night I got sweet potato fries.  I didn’t eat them all and was going to just leave them on the plate until Tony said “can’t you make a sweet potato hash with those?”

Genius.  This breakfast was so good!  Slightly sweet, savory . . . yum!

Sweet Potato Hash (serves 1 for 8 WW points with egg)

  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 2.5 ounces leftover sweet potato fries (or I guess you could use the same amount of diced sweet potato)
  • 1 ounce chopped corned beef
  • 1/2 ounce cheddar cheese
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini (squeezed dry)
  • 1 egg

Heat oil over medium heat.  Chop up leftover fries into bite size pieces.  Cook for a few minutes, then add zucchini, corned beef and cook a few more minutes.  Add cheese and cook another minute.  Plate and put a fried egg on top.

The zucchini really bulked up this breakfast and it was so filling. 😀

It was a beautiful day yesterday, and I felt like walking.  I just walked behind my office building and walked on a road that’s a culdesac, so there is hardly any traffic.  I told Tony we should bit on this house, but we won’t bid over $150,000 – ha!

Lunch was another salad with a cup of chicken brunswick stew – not sure who’s bowl this is, but I borrowed it – I love it!  Lunch comes in at 9 points.

Work was non-stop yesterday, hardly got a break, but at least the day went by fast.  I didn’t have anything really planned for dinner, but pasta sounded good.  I made a quick sauce with 1 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes, 1/2 cup white wine, 1 teaspoon olive oil, oregano and 8 ounces of cooked ground beef.  I need to figure out how to take pictures at night now that’s its dark so soon!

So here is my pasta under flourescent light – this bowl is 12 points.

So the moment you’ve all been waiting for. . .

-1.2!  I’ll take it.  I plan on making changes this week – exercise over the weekend, which I hardly ever do, and put the wine away – I want to be in the 150’s again next week dammit! 😀

What are you plans for the weekend?  I see a trip to Goodwill with Hannah in my future. 😀

    • I do not really have much to say in rpssonee, I only wanted to register to reply well done. My fiance really loved your point of view. It looks like you have put a lot of effort into your post and this world need much more of these on the Internet these days.

  4. WOOT! I will take it too – 1.2 lb loss is the awesome sauce Bizzy. So happy for you.

    I still think that gain was an fluke. Honestly.

    Guess what? I couldn’t wait to tell you – but hubs did give me the hand weights for my birthday! YAY! He said he hesitated because they seemed like such a lame o gift, but I love ’em. So when my comments start going astray – you’ll know it is because I am typing with one hand. giggle.
