I'm Watching You!

I'm watching you this week! Are you going to be on plan (whatever plan is your plan)? I am! And therefore I started my week with this!

Mmmmm!! It's called a rainbow cone and it's from a place in the South Suburbs of Chicago called Rainbow Cone (I know, original right!). This one is actually a small but they have a large one. They also sell cakes and other things. The ice creams used are (starting from the top) Orange Sherbet, Pistachio, Palmer House, Strawberry and Chocolate. It used to be a tradition to go here for my family every year! I try to stop once a year but missed last year. I wasn't missing it this year! But have no fear! I counted my points!

I also made a slaw recipe. It was just ok. Maybe you know how to make it better? I'll share the recipe with you anyway in case you would like to try it.

Heat 1 TBSP canola oil in a large skillet
Then mix in 1 TBSP + 1 tsp fresh minced ginger, stirring constantly for about 1 min.
Add 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper and stir constantly for 30 seconds (I didn't have any and used chili powder (probably my mistake).
Add 6 cups shredded cabbage. (I used cabbage and carrots)
Cook about 8 mins. until softened.
Add 4 chopped green onions, 1 TBSP rice vinegar, 1/4 tsp sugar

The finished product.

Along side with my masala burger from Trader Joes on a bagel thin with laughing cow cheese. I love these burgers! And that is a plastic Betty Boop plate with kisses all over it. I eat in style.

Now, I will leave you with my little kitties. They are cuddling. So cute!


  1. I saw that eye driving around downtown one day, its creepy.

  2. Trying to decide what my plan is. I need something to get me back on track. I have been stressed and distracted as of late and the thing with my arms is not helping.

  3. I know Courtney, right? I work downtown so I see it frequently. Kinda creepy! Like the City of Chicago is watching you! Big Brother like!

    Sorry Kathleen, I know it's hard when you are stressed and have to take care of medical stuff. That's how it was with me last Sept/Oct! Good luck, hang in there!
