The first new thing I fixed this week was Callie's
Mock Frozen Yogurt. What a great treat! I could have eaten it straight from the blender but chose instead to put it in popsicle molds to share with my granddaughter who was coming over to spend the night. She loved it, and I felt really good
about giving her a healthy treat. Blueberries and strawberries are 0 points, so only my yogurt counted. 2 PP for the entire thing, and it made 8 popsicles.
One of my favorite recipes is Roast
Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style. Whole chickens were on sale recently, and I bought 4 of them just so I could make this recipe! I use almost all the seasoning on one chicken. It is fabulous! When I have the time to bake it (or don't forget about
it), I bake it according to the recipe. But if I've let the time slip away from me, I use the baking instructions for Spicy
Rapid Roast Chicken. It only takes an hour to roast and is delicious!
A great side with roasted chicken is Corn
on the Cob (Easy Cleaning and Shucking). I've made corn like this for years. Love it, and it's so easy. I can really taste the difference if corn is boiled in water. This just tastes so fresh and crisp...not cooked to death. I spread a little
Brummel and Brown on it and a little salt and eat it up!
I told you last week that I love salads in the summertime. So this week I tried Pea
Salad. I used 2% cheddar cheese and Hellman's light mayo. When I began adding the dressing mixture, I ended up using only half of it. That made it 4 PP per serving. I liked it for something
different but will decrease the mustard a little bit next time.
A new beverage recipe I fixed was Iced
Mocha Fusion Shake. I was starving one night right before supper and was going to do serious damage if I didn't get something immediately...something that wasn't fruit or broccoli! So I made this using Maxwell House International Cafe Cafe Vienna.
I figured it to be about 5 PP.
Another new recipe I made this week was Healthier
Chicken Enchiladas I. It calls for lighter ingredients and lots of veggies as well as some black beans. I took the lazy way out and layered it casserole style instead of rolling my tortillas. Very tasty! It was a whopping 10 points but worth every
I'm not weighing in today. I've got two grandboys, 3 and 7, coming to spend the night. The 3-year-old has already told me
he wants to have a tea party at Granna's. A boy after my own heart!
While I may not know exactly how much I lost this week, I am encouraged that I am losing. Yesterday, I wore a size smaller
pair of slacks that I absolutely could not zip up 7 weeks ago! How can just 5 pounds make that much difference? Evidently, doing my pilates at home and going to the gym twice a week to exercise and lift weights are taking off inches!
Please feel free to leave healthy recipes you have found. There are certain people I look for on the photo pages and in
the reviews who quite often have healthy recipes: Lela, Baker Bee, kellieann, and lutzflcat - just to name a few. If you leave me some here, I'll know to look for you too :)
