The Best Jarred Salsas....

Daily Tidbit:  I love using Roasted Red Peppers!  They provide such a wonderful flavor to all sorts of dishes.  For those of us who buy the jarred variety, here is a list of some of the best:


Breakfast: Bagel & Banana
Bagel Thin with Brummel n Brown
1 mini can of Coke Zero


Unwrapped:  Roasted Red Pepper & White Bean Dip

Roasted Red Pepper & White Bean Dip Wrap

Butternut Squash Soup

Lunch: Soup & Sandwich
1 Medium Whole Wheat Wrap with Roasted Red Pepper & White Bean Dip (recipe below)
2 cups of Trader Joe's Low Sodium Butternut Squash Soup topped with a squirt of fresh Lemon
Cucumber Lemon Water

Note:  This soup used to be one of our favs.  That was before I started making homemade soups - what a difference!  Well it is pretty good by canned soup standards and you cannot beat the convenience, but for soup nothing can compare to homemade!   Meantime, 1 serving of vegetables is 1/2 cup cooked vegetables, which means I got 4 servings in this one bowl of soup!

Roasted Red Pepper & White Bean Dip Recipe:
Put the following items into the food processor, process & serve:
1 large clove of Garlic
1 can of Cannellini White Beans (rinsed and drained)
2 whole Roasted Red Peppers
juice of 1/2 Lemon
Handful of Cilantro
1 tbsp EVOO
salt, to taste


Snack:  1/4 cup dry roasted, lightly salted Peanuts, Fat Free Chocolate Milk (homemade with organic Chocolate syrup) 


Salsa with Corn, Tomatoes & Kidney Beans

Salsa Bean Dip made with:
  1/2 cup Red Kidney Beans
  1/4 cup Corn

Dessert:  After last night, how could I?!?  So, no.    I need to go to store tomorrow and load up on Apples!
