Happy Woman Baking

Watching Mad Men, and for the fun of it, I am happy, not mad. I have a surplus of bananas and strawberries.  I have never had old bananas and just decided to make bread.  So today, I thought I would.  I looked on WW site, but didn’t find one that was the point range I wanted.  Turns out, there’s a reason.  I didn’t know this until I finished, but it was a good learning experience in cooking.

Found 2 recipes on pinterest:
This one –

And this one –


My final recipe is gone. Once I ended my membership with Weight Watchers, it seems they deleted the link to the recipe I made on their site.

This is how I start – take out all ingredients and line them up – helps me to make sure I have everything!  As I add each ingredient, I put them away.  That way, when I’m done, I don’t have much of any clean up except bowls and measuring/mixing tools.
Strawberries.  If I worked with cutting up strawberries more often, I might just want a huller.  It’s kind of pain to cut out the stems.
This is how I diced up the strawberries.  Just wanted to give a picture.  I didn’t leave them big at all.  I also didn’t want them pureed with the banana, yogurt mixture.
 Dry mix.  Pretty dry.  Pretty straight forward.
 Batter all together and ready to bake!
 
While it was baking, I used the timer to see if I could get the rest of my stuff done.  Cleaned up the dishes.  I programmed the coffee for 5:00 am, and made my peanut butter dip for the rest of my strawberries.  Here is how easy that is:
 
 Above are the ingredients.  Plain chobani yogurt, 2 tbsp of peanut butter, and 2 tbsp of confectioner sugar.  This time I also added 1 tsp of cinnamon.
 Doesn’t that look yummy?  No?  Well, we gotta mix it! đŸ˜€
 Makes 3 servings.  Package up some strawberries, and you will be excited for your afternoon snack!  2 PP on WW.
 I also packed my breakfast, which I have after the gym at work.  I know, it’s just cereal, but on WW I find that we often get ideas for a way to change up our meals, by what others post.  This is 1 serving (3/4 cup) of Fiber One Honey Squares (2 PP), 1 serving Special K Fruit and Yogurt (3 PP), with 1 cup of skim milk (2 PP).  Totals 7 PP on WW.
 For lunch, I packed a salad.  It is a little pointy, but lots of veggies!  5 PP for the chicken.  I package it separately, so I can microwave it and put it on the salad, hot.  The salad has olives (1PP), 1/8 cup feta (1PP), and 3 tbsp Wegman’s Light Peppercorn Ranch dressing (3PP).  Total of 10 PP.
Ok, folded the laundry and got this blog done.  Here is the final product of the strawberry banana bread.  Very tasty, but turned out at 11 servings, 5 PP each.  A little high for me, as a snack.  Going to bring it in to IT tomorrow.  Those guys will eat it up.
Hoping to get another blog up soon on the abs challenge I started in the Weight Watchers community.  Should be fun!!!
