It seems that Thursday nights we have pizza. Not sure how this started, but now we do this every Thursday. We grill our pizza on the bbq. It tastes so much better that way. Makes the thin crust crispy. Melts the cheese perfectly and everything in between is hot.
I dont buy just any old pizza. Gregg and I discovered about 2 years ago a frozen pizza at Costco. We were looking for one that had toppings we liked and that was low in calories. Well we found one. Its called “Palermo’s“. It comes in many different flavors. We have tried them all and like them all. My favorite is the Hawaiian and Gregg likes the Chicken Cesar but we both enjoy the Sweet Thai.
We buy the Primo Thin pizzas. Costco only carries 4 flavors, but on the website you can see they have more. The calorie count is low. You can eat half a pizza to yourself and its under 600 calories! We add extra mushrooms and some onions to bulk it up. After 2 slices I am stuffed!
So that’s whats on the menu this evening. Pizza and a beer. Plus a night of great TV. Its Survivor, CSI and ER. Gregg only watches Survivor with me.
We had a great day. We left home and picked up Mom at noon and headed to the Tradex Center. Once there we found parking which was 3.00 on the way out later. We walked in and our sniffers were hit with all kinds of goodness.
As we came through the main gate we grabbed a bag for all our goodies. We started to walk around and looked at all the different cooking supplies and foods and drinks you could buy. There were lots of products to look at. Some stands had samples to taste.
After going through all the vendors we headed for the food and drink section. We had to buy tickets to use for buying samples. 2 tickets would get you an once of wine. 5-8 tickets would get you some type of food.
I found a beer I really liked. Its made from rice. It was very smooth and tasty. I will be picking some up soon.
I also found a new wine that I must try again. Its made by “Lotusland Vineyards” right here in Abbotsford! The wine is a new creation called “Ortega”. Its a white wine. It was so yummy I could drink it every day. I will put this on my Christmas list.
Once we were home, I sorted out all the stuff in my goodie bag. Check out all the swag! Lots of cat food samples. Baby likes them, but Bunny thinks that Duck flavored food is not yummy. I got recipes and coupons and the V8 fusion plus the razors were being given away at the door as you left. I tried out the razor and must say I like it. It would be a good thing to take with for traveling.
So, all in all, I think it was a nice day. We all had a good time.
P.S. Sorry this is a week late. I was waiting for Gregg to edit the pictures.
Gregg won some tickets to “Eat Fraser Valley” at the Tradex this weekend. So we will be going on Sunday. My Mom will be joining us and I think my sister and her hubby will be too. This should be interesting. All the food and drinks we will get to try out. I’m sure this will not be good for our diet…lol
We will be taking pictures and will blog all about it on Monday.
Did you know that food hurts? The left side of my mouth is so tender today. I think I will be on soft foods till I get my tooth fixed. Last night Gregg had bbq’d some sirloin steak and It tasted great. It was tender meat but to my poor mouth it felt like I was chewing on a rock. My gums hurt, my bite is messed up and I dont even want to brush my teeth. I will brush them, dont worry.
I looked in the fridge to see what I could eat for lunch. It came down to peeled cucumber slices and some ham. I just couldn’t get myself to eat anything else. Everything looked like it would hurt except for the yogurt. I can eat that. I just don’t think I could survive on yogurt. And how much can a person eat? I think I will be having a lot of soup over the next couple weeks. Maybe I will finally lose that last 10lbs…LOL
