Portuguese BBQ Chicken

Portuguese BBQ Chicken

Ok, I didn’t cook this one, but I found out I can actually eat Rotisserie Chicken (without the skin… I know, this is the best part, but it’s pretty freaking good without skin too) on my Weight Watchers plan! woo!

And well, ok, it wasn’t actually Rotisserie Chicken. So, there’s this place that’s a few doors down from us… a Portuguese BBQ place… the chicken is SO good. They call it BBQ, but it’s essentially cooked like it’s on a rotisserie and since this place isn’t a chain, I figured comparing it to a Boston Market Rotisserie Chicken would be fair. I found out that half a Boston Market chicken without the skin is only 8 points! So awesome. That, plus a salad, and it was a great meal.

This is one of the things I love about Weight Watchers. Things that I thought I really shouldn’t be eating, really isn’t bad after all!

Paterson Farmer's Market

A new experience!

My husband and I were running some errands and I realized we were near the Paterson Farmer’s Market. I’ve heard it’s a great market with great prices, so we made a little detour there on the way home.

It was great and wow, amazing prices. (Now, it’s not all Jersey stuff, which I would love, but that often makes you end up with high prices for mildly better produce.) Definitely will be making this a weekly stop since we really saved a bunch of money. It’s a much more interesting place to buy produce than Shoprite.

So as we were sitting around, taking a rest before moving on to other errands, I thought, “I bet strawberries taste good with a little lemon juice sprinkled over them.” I was right! What a great, vibrant combo… I just cut up the strawberries into little bite-size pieces, cut a lemon in half, and squeezed some juice over the strawberries. It wasn’t a huge addition of flavor, but it definitely gave the strawberries a little fun kick. Really woke up the taste buds. Will definitely be doing that again. And I’ll probably try a ¬†little squeeze of lemon on more things now!
