I think I should have added some greek yogurt to my Amazing Smoothie this morning to have a little protein and staying power. I was hungry about 2 hours later and decided to not ruin my Luau BBQ appetite. I snacked on a new to me TJ’s Product ~ Multi-Grain Sesame Pretzel nuggets.
One 22 piece serving is 2 Weight Watcher Points.
They are pretty tasty and slightly addictive. There is a little hint of toasty sesame seeds but the overall flavor is pretzel. These would be AMAZING dipped in some Gourmet PB!!!
The luau today was fun! The President ended up doing all the BBQing along with a few helpers. But, before I get to the food, let me share a couple of our fun decorations.
Tiki Torches with cute table decorations and BUBBLES!
Fun umbrellas for our drinks!
In Tropical Punch of course ~ The Mai Tai’s will come out later I am sure :D lol…..
Tons of FANTASTIC food! Salads ~ Organic Mixed Greens with snap peas
Sweet 3-Bean Salad
Teriyaki Chicken, Pineapple Chicken Sausage, BBQ Ribs using Annie’s Org BBQ Sauce
A new type of Veggie Burger that I NEED to buy! It tasted like Veggie Egg Rolls with nuts – YUM!
Fantastic Grilled Veggies!
Desserts! Watermelon, July 4th Strawberry Mouse Cake & the BIGGEST cupcakes I’ve ever seen!
I had to try a little bit of everything. I put my 3-bean salad on top of my organic mixed greens.
Then I loaded up on Grilled Veggies!
With a little meat sampler ~ 1 rib, 1/2 piece chicken and 1/2 a chicken pineapple sausage (which was really awesome but definitely not healthy tasting). I LOVED seeing the big pieces of pineapple in the sausage.
Plus a slice of juicy watermelon!
I was fairly full/content at this point when the strawberry mouse cake was served up. It was actually too sweet for me. I had a bite to try it and then just ate the strawberry middle. :D
For our games we just ended up doing trivia questions while everyone worked this morning ~ it was easiest. I wanted to do more or things that are fun (like a pineapple carving contest or limbo) but you have to go with what the crowd wants, right?!
It was a fun day and I am happily sitting on the couch, blogging and watching the Food Network ~ ahhhhh! I am not sure what our plans are for tonight, but, for now I am going to work on playing catch up with you all!
