Before I get into my weekend eats, I calculated the nutritional stats for the cookies I made yesterday. I thought they tasted great, not too sweet and the texture was nice and soft.

Friday evening, we had an amazing triple date night and I treated myself to Ruth Chris’ steak sandwich (since they are known for their steak) for dinner. The food was amazing & happy hour was fantastic!!!
Ahi tuna for the table and another another pomegranate martini for me!
I had more coconut flour pancakes one day for breakfast and then switched it up and had soyrizo with 1 egg/2 egg whites in a whole wheat pita with salsa & avocado the next day.
Dinner at a Mexican restaurant was a small bowl of soup and chicken fajitas. Here’s how I like to cut the calories on my fajita plate:
- no tortillas
- usually ask for no cheese on the beans (scraped that off)
- order sour cream and guac on side (I don’t eat the sour cream and only eat a little of the guac)
- Eat all my chicken, veggies and beans with extra salsa
Capped the weekend off with an early Thanksgiving feast at mom’s & dad’s house…turkey, tri-tip, mashed potatoes, spicy sweet potatoes & stuffing. I took my tweaking of the stuffing a little overboard with all the added veggies, so I called it a low-carb stuffing. Oh well, I thought it still taste good!
Then of course, I had to try out the pie! I had a small piece of crumbled apple pie and a piece of pumpkin pie and whip, because you know, it’s just not complete without it!
Question: What’s your favorite type of pie? Mine is def Pumpkin pie!
