Monday – National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day

According to today is National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day

It’s all about texture (crisp!) and appearance (lace-like holes!) for lacy cookie lovers. But if you’re not so worried about looks, these crunchy cookies are perfect tea companions.

My favourite cookie ever is Oatmeal & Raisin – but I will not be making any cookies today.  But I will be striving to stick to 26 Points Plus Allowance.  Here is my plan for today:

Breakfast – Individual Rolled Oat Cups, Fresh Fruit – 5 Points+

Lunch – Roja Vieja Bowl – 7 Points+

Dinner – Black Bean Soup, Baked Tortilla Chips, Avocado – 9 Points+

Extras – 5 Points+


Individual Blueberry Rolled Oat Cups (5 Points+)

Banana – 0 Points+

Breakfast 16th

This morning I had another of those yummy individual blueberry oat cups that I made on Saturday.  I heated it through in the microwave and it was still very good.  I am sure they would be good with any fruit.


Roja Vieja Bowl – 7 Points+

Grapes – 0 Points+

Lunch 18th

Lunch was once of these easy ones comprising leftovers from the weekend.  In a bowl I put some of the Quinoa I had set aside from yesterday’s breakfast and topped it with some of the meat from Saturday night.  Simple, quick and filling.


Black Bean Soup – 5 Points+

Baked Tortilla Chips – 2 Points+

Avocado – 2 Points+

Dinner 18th

When I was fixing dinner, I thought to myself I don’t think my hubby is going to be too impressed with this one.  Firstly, where is the meat?  Secondly, not a huge fan of black beans!

I love black beans, so I really liked this soup.  It made 3 servings, one to be set aside to make Black Bean Tostados for lunch on Thursday.  So in light of my thoughts above, I also have another portion of this delicious soup is anyone wants some!  My hubby fixed himself a grilled cheese sandwich instead.

I made up some Baked Tortilla Chips to serve along side this.    I took 4 corn tortillas and each into 6 wedges.  I laid them out on a cookie sheet and sprayed with cooking spray.  Sprinkled with some salt and popped in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 mins until crispy.  I also cooked another couple of corn tortillas whole to use for the Black Bean Tostados on Thursday.

I also 1/4 of an avocado and sliced up over the chips and drizzled with some Salsa.

It was really yummy to take a chip with some salsa and avocado and dip into the bowl and scoop up some black beans!


Sat and watched a little TV and snacked on a packet of Pop Chips (2PP) per bag and later on a mini bag of Brookside Chocs (2PP) giving me a grand total of 25PP for today.
