14 hours of sleep for me = no productivity but “REFRESHED-Jess!”

1 Comment

Yes, you read that right.  Definitely crawled into bed at the ripe hour of ten pm last night and awoke with a “damnit!” at noon today!  Needless to say, this has set me back on the million many things I have to do in less than 2.5 hours before we head to my mom’s.

1.  Check emails to see if anyone wants a free cookie!  See previous post and email me jessdownes@yahoo.com with your address for a free sample cookie from diet-cookies.com

2.  BLOG

3.  Run (probably only a 3-miler today but definitely need to start this Thankful day out with a thankful run)

4.  Make my contribution for tonight’s feast:  sweet potato casserole.  Going to be using the recipe I found on Lisa’s blog www.pamperedwithpaige.com

Sweet Potato Casserole

Makes 6 servings @ 85 calories per serving. NICE.

  • 1 (18-ounce) can sweet potatoes, drained
  • Brown sugar substitute to equal 1 cup brown sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-calorie margarine, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-calorie margarine


Combine sweet potatoes, three fourths of the brown sugar substitute, milk, egg, melted margarine, and vanilla, stirring until well blended. Spoon into a shallow baking dish coated with cooking spray.

Combine flour and remaining one fourth of the brown sugar substitute; cut in 1 tablespoon margarine until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over potatoes, and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Why do I doubt mine will actually look like this:


Anyway, continuing on:

5. Pack myself for NYC!

6. Pack lil’ Oscar for NYC-we think we will get him groomed while we are there-heaven knows he needs it!

LOL Bri and I thought it would be funny to make him horns- he REALLY needs a haircut!

OK, I will be posting throughout the day, so please check back and send me an email to get your FREE cookie!  Did I mention they are fat free and only 115 cals or less so you can eat these babies guilt-free during this often guilt-ful holiday season?!?!?

Peace out!
