KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend!! If you've had a hectic week like my husband and I have (or if you're dealing with the recent snowstorm) grab a cup of coffee, get comfy, and enjoy some major retail therapy. This week's Friday Finds is just the thing for some serious online shopping. I was honestly running late with this post, because I got distracted browsing through all of the products available in each shop. There are so many great finds and a sweet, personal touch to each brand. Enjoy! :) Pictured above: Black Polka Dot Print Crossbody Bag by Sudden Inspiration


The first featured store is Sudden Inspiration, a shop that sells the cutest hand-crafted bags. You can find everything from cosmetics bags and wristlets to roomy crossbody bags. The designs pair faux leather with beautiful prints and colors.

A Healthier Reuben Sandwich

 
Bathing-suit season is right around the corner, ladies. If you've been stuffing your face with green beer and corned beef brisket all weekend, now is not the time to make leftover reuben sandwiches smothered with cheese and salad dressing and fried in butter. Let's lighten things up a bit, shall we?

Start by replacing the rye or pumpernickel bread with low-cal whole grain bread, the thinner the better. Instead of slathering on butter, spray a pan or griddle with non-stick spray. Fill your sandwich with a few slices of leftover corned beef and saurkraut. If you absolutely have to have a spread on your sandwich, skip the Thousand Island dressing and use nonfat Greek yogurt. You can always jazz up the yogurt with lemon juice and spices. You might fight me on this next one, but skip on the cheese. If you absolutely can't control yourself, use lowfat mozerella. Lightly toast the sandwich on both sides until golden brown and crispy.

  1. I can get into all of the ingredients of a Reuben sandwich, except for the bread. I've never developed an appreciation for rye or pumpernickel.

  2. Rye is a little hard for me to like, but I'm good with pumpernickel.

  3. Thanks for this. Reuben sandwiches are my favorites, and if I can save some calories - well, I'll like them even more.
