Honey, What's for dinner?

Me: Honey, I'm not hungry..... are you?
Mr Big Dubya: No , not really
Me: How 'bout McDonald's Vanilla Shakes for dinner?
Mr Big Dubya: Oooohh, that sounds good
Me: Cool..... or we could get ice cream.... from that homemade place?
Mr Big Dubya: Sold!

Yes, okay..... we are bad parents.... we eat ice cream for dinner.... not often, just once in a while..... and the 'lil guy had a peaches.... not ice cream.... so he's not picking up our bad habits.... yet.

As for the diet I pledged myself to not long ago..... I was (notice the past tense here) doing very well..... and then I fell off the wagon a bit when I got to Vegas.... I had yummy things for breakfast like this and this .... it was delicious and I'm not sorry.... oh, and by the way these guys make a great Irish Coffee and they don't even bat an eye when you order one at 8:30 am.

I am however recommitting myself today..... so, here's a good dieting tip

Not only is hommus tasty (once you get used to it) but it's filling and the numbers are good
Numbers (for two tablespoons):
Calories 20
Fiber 3 grams
Fat 2 grams
Carbs 5 grams
WW points 1

I'm all about the hummous. Except for that two tablespoons per serving part. I tend to eat more like 15 tablespoons at a time, which probably undermines it's diet-y value.

All the hummus I've had was 2 points per serving. I'll have to try this brand.
