Last night, The BF and I hit the grocery store around midnight. I've been craving...
Wait for it...
Waffles (of all things!) lately, and I wanted to see if I could find some that were reasonably-pointed. And boy did I!
The frozen foods section of grocery stores is always a bit dangerous for me: pizza... ice cream... pizza rolls... various kinds of easy-to-make, breaded and/or friend chicken... Ok, I should stop....
Anyway, I found waffles (bottom left) for only 2PP per waffle, which sounds just fine. Didn't want to waste too many PP on breakfast food, after all! =) I hesitate to officially vouch for them, since I haven't actually eaten them yet... despite my craving, and as you can see, I found other things to distract my palate. (I'm also a little afraid to calculate syrup... I've heard scary things)
Like veggie- corn dogs! (See top left) I have to confess: I didn't find these on my own; HungryGirl mentioned them in her blog, (awhile ago, I think-- I don't read regularly) and it sounded ok. I'm not a big fan of tofu... or at least, I'm not in theory....
But they were really good! I think if you gave it to someone without telling them what it was, they wouldn't know the difference. The breading was thick and full of flavor, and they are worth a whopping FOUR PP. Score!
The corn dogs were in the same freezer as the Boca products, and since I've also heard good things about their hamburgers, I decided to give the Spicy Chicken Patties a try. Surprisingly good! I also thought it was cool that the WeightWatchers points value is right on the box for all of Boca's products.
The chicken patties are THREE PP for one, and were decently spicy (don't worry, they have non-spicy patties, too!). In terms of spiciness, I would compare it to Wendy's spicy chicken (which is 12PP, compared to 5PP for my Boca patty and 2 pieces of bread. Talk about winning!). In terms of texture, it is easily comparable to the "normal" frozen chicken patties that you would buy in the frozen section... just fewer points (3PP compared to 5+ for real chicken)!
And when I turned away from the tofu-freezer, what did I see but Larry's mashed potatoes?!
O-M-G. These are soooooooo good! My mom used to buy them for family meals, and it was/is pretty much the only potato product I like (outside of chips and french fries... Those count, right? Right? It bothers me that you're not answering....)
Don't get me wrong, I know potatoes are great for you but... YuckYuckYuck!
Larry's Potatoes, however, are well worth the FIVE PP that they come out to be. Today, for instance, I had a potato with a chicken patty on bread for Blunch (eaten between 10:30-11:15AM), and was satisfied until 3:30. Plus... did I mention how YUM this stuff is?!
