My life as a woman, wife and mother.

More recipes!

on July 28, 2012

Good Saturday Morning! I slept in until 5ish and then headed downstairs for my workout. 20 minutes on the elliptical while watching the Olympics, Jillian’s DVD #9 (for the final time!) and then a 10 minute walk on the treadmill while watching more olympics. 150# on the scale, nice.

Last night I made a recipe from the Weight Watchers website with slight modifications.


  2 t. olive oil, extra-virgin, divided   
  1 medium uncooked zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch slices   
  1 pound uncooked shrimp, large-size, peeled and deveined   
  1 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half   
  1/2 tsp dried oregano   
  1/2 tsp table salt   
  1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground, or to taste   
  1 1/2 tsp minced garlic   
  1/4 cup water   


  • Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add zucchini in a single layer; increase heat to high and cook until bottoms are golden, about 2 minutes. Flip zucchini and cook until golden on other side, about 2 minutes more. Remove zucchini to a plate with a slotted spoon.
  • Heat remaining teaspoon oil in same skillet. Add shrimp; sauté 1 to 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, oregano, salt and pepper; sauté until shrimp are almost just cooked through, about 1 minute. Stir in garlic and water; sauté, stirring to loosen bits from bottom of pan, until shrimp are cooked through and tomatoes are softened, about 1 to 2 minutes more. Return zucchini to skillet; toss and serve. Yields about 1 1/4 cups per serving.

We had 3 larger servings of this at 4 PP+ each. Almost like shrimp scampi without all the butter. L ate all of hers and asked if there was more! Sadly, there wasn’t.

Breakfast was an oatmeal bake. I prepped it after my workout and put it in the oven while I showered. The concept was off of a website, Chocolate Covered Katie.

  • 1/2 c. old fashioned oats
  • 1 packet truvia
  • dash of salt
  • 1 T. maple syrup
  • 1 t. poppyseeds
  • some rhubarb
  • 1 mashed banana
  • about 1/4 c. of water

Mixed it all together and baked at 375 for 20 minutes. Yummy!

We are going to check out the animals at the fair this morning and the art exhibits. My family already saw the animals once, but they are willing to go back so I can see them! 🙂

Enjoy your day!
