Meals for 11/11/09

Hello everyone! Another day another load of laundry...LOL...I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday! I got up this morning and decided to take a trial run to Weston, Ma where my job interview is tomorrow to make sure I know how to get there...and it was a piece of cake:) I am really excited!! For breakfast I had my Jimmy Dean Bagel sandwich...I love these things...I think my favorite so far is the english muffin one...that one seems to fill me up the most...

Jimmy Dean Bagel sandwich = 5 points

For lunch I had a lean cuisine angel hair pomodoro and a nice salad with my new dressing. I really like this dressing...some low fat dressings are too tangy tasting but this one doesn't have a strong tang to are the pictures:

Lean Cuisine Angel Hair Pomodoro = 5 points
Lettuce, baby carrots & cucumbers = 0 points
Ranch Dressing = 2 points
Total points for lunch = 7 points

Afternoon Snack:

Good evening my bloggies...I hope you had a wonderful afternoon! I did...spent some time catching up on some blogs and finishing my laundry:) Watching a few more of my show Medium and then made a yummy dinner:) Here is the recipe and pictures:

Beef & Bean Burrito = 6 points
Corn = 2 points
Total points for Dinner: 8 points

Beef & Bean Burritos
Makes 4 servings

4 10-inch flour tortillas
8 ounces lean ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1 15oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 10oz can chopped tomatoes & green chili peppers, undrained
1 to 2 tsp chili powder
1 Tbsp chopped green onion

1. Wrap tortillas in foil. Heat in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes to soften. Meanwhile, for filling, in a large skillet cook ground beef and onion until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain off fat. Stir in beans, undrained tomatoes and chili peppers, and chili powder. Bring to boiling, reduce heat. Simmer uncovered, for 5 minutes or so to desired consistency.

2. Set aside 1/4 cup of the filling. For each burrito, spoon one-forth of the remaining filling onto each tortilla just below center. Fold plain side of tortilla over filling. Fold the opposite sides of tortilla, just until they meet; roll up. Top with the reserved filling. Sprinkle with green onion.
