Hi everyone! I hope that you all had a great day and are staying cool. :D
Okay, I am probably the last person on the Blogosphere to try The Laughing Cow wedges. Why, oh, why! did I wait so long?
Part of it is that I was afraid. I mean, light? Swiss? Spreadable? Didn't sound all that great to me. And let's face it, the little round of wedges isn't exactly cheap. But after all of the raving I have read here and there and everywhere, I finally decided that today was the day to take the plunge.
It didn't hurt that Fry's had it marked down a little bit and I had a coupon. So, I bought me some Laughing Cow, brought it home and decided to take it for a test drive.
But with what?
Mmm... How about a few pretzel sticks?
Yeah. Pretzel sticks.
So, I got a few pretzel sticks, opened up a wedge and started in. Yum! Mild, creamy and pleasant to eat. I like.
Later, I decided to have another wedge on my steamed summer squash.
I think I just created a monster. lol
I have also been rethinking Thursdays. Frankly, I think I am over the weekly Subway nosh. Don't get me wrong, I like Subway and will continue to eat some, now and again but this weekly sandwich thing is not doing me any favours. I have been splurging on 12" sandwiches with avocado and cheese and light mayo and that adds up to a lot of calories. Calories that slide altogether too easily down the old throat. 900 calories is a lot to expend on one meal, even on a higher calorie day. So, the subs will be a treat for days when we go out and I need something healthy and yummy and don't want to be tempted by say... Burgers.
I think that from now on, Subway Thursday is going to just be Thursday.
And I am perfectly happy with this decision. :D
