Tasty Tuesday On A Vaca!

Greetings from Naples, Florida!!!!

Darin and I are on a kid-free, long weekend down here celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary. We are on the beach and it’s hot and sunny! Life is GOOD!

I’m relaxing and reading in my beach chair (on my iPad) and thought it couldn’t get much better, when I received an email with a perfect Tasty Tuesday idea! It was all written up for me, so I decided to post it early and not worry about remembering to write for the rest of our time down here. Gretchen..your timing is impeccable!!!! Thank you very,very much!

Now here’s the thing………you’re all going to have to “cook” a little more with this one. It’s a REAL recipe, as opposed to the food ideas I provide, so that will keep you busy until I get back!

I WILL be home Wednesday and I WILL be leading my Thursday and Friday meetings as usual. Unless you’re on vaca too, please don’t skip the meeting because I’m not there!!! I will be looking at the attendance list when I get back!! Hahaha :-). But seriously…….go to the meeting!!

4PointsPlus Value
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 0 min
Serves: 4
Peppery arugula and tart goat cheese go beautifully with sweet peaches. The combo is a true winner – especially topped with some chopped salted nuts.

3 medium peach(es), ripe but not mushy

1 Tbsp olive oil, extra virgin

1 Tbsp red wine vinegar

1/4 tsp table salt

1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground (plus extra for garnish – optional)
6 cup(s) arugula, baby variety
1/2 small uncooked red onion(s), thinly sliced

1/4 cup(s) semisoft goat cheese, crumbled

1/4 cup(s) salted dry-roasted pistachio nuts, coarsely chopped

Peel and pit one peach; cut it into chunks. Cut remaining peaches into thin slices or wedges; set aside.

Put peach chunks, oil, vinegar, salt and pepper in a blender; blend until smooth and set aside.

Place arugula, onion and peach slices in a large serving bowl; drizzle with dressing and gently toss to coat. Sprinkle with cheese and nuts; grind some extra black pepper over top, if desired. Yields about 2 cups salad mixture and 1 tablespoon each cheese and nuts per serving.

Use mango when peaches are not in season.

Sounds yummy, doesn’t it? Hope you enjoy it and I will see you later this week!


Anything consumed in a WW mug is 0 PointsPlus, correct??!!????

    Thrilled to hear you get time to play just the 2 of you.

    I am so excited! I weight in this morning as I am leaving for the week and wanted to get weight in. I was down more than a pound for a total of 30 pounds! I am loving my new active link. I have to go for a walk shortly as I am only at 92%. I will make more than 100%.

    Looking forward to seeing next Tuesday!
