Can you believe it is Friday already? Another week in the books and another week of WW under my belt! This week I wanted to make a goal so bad, I swear every time this week I was hungry I thought….man, I hope my body is feeding on my fat! Yup, I really think that!
I have only been doing WW for 6 weeks and it seems like so much longer! This week I lost 2.9 pounds!! yay me! And………drumroll please……………I have lost a total of 10 pounds! I am 166 now! I am very proud and this is exciting because this is really the first time I have lost weight and even tried to! I am also aprehensive because I know I could gain a pound or two back and although I will try everything not to I don’t want to set myself up for disapointment!
I have a few recipes to share with you all, last night I made WW Lobster Mac-n-cheese and it was so good! Matt loved this dish and we are excited to have the left overs today! This is 8 WW points for 1 generous cup!
This is from the WW One Pot Meals cookbook I have……
1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter
2 Tablespoons Flour
1 can Fire Roasted tomatoes
1 cup Reduced-fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
⅓ cups Parmesan Cheese, Shredded
½ cups 1% Milk
⅛ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg or mustard powder
¼ teaspoons Black Pepper
1 teaspoon Parsley Flakes
3 cups Whole Wheat Elbow Noodles, Cooked (I used fusilli)
¾ pounds Lobster Meat, Cooked And Chopped
In a large skillet on medium/high heat, melt the butter and then stir in the flour. Keep stirring the roux for about 30 seconds and then add in the tomatoes. Stir and cook the mixture for about 1 minute.
Add in the cheeses, milk, nutmeg, pepper, and parsley and stir until the cheese is melted and smooth. Pour in the noodles and lobster and mix until everything is well blended. Top with fresh parsley.
This dessert is my favorite dessert and it is also from a WW cookbook! This dessert is 2 points but the amount below I doubled (go figure) and it is 4 points!
2 tablespoons milk chocolate chips
1 whole wheat tortilla
1 teaspoon sugar
Just put the chips, sugar and cinnamon into the tortilla then fold it over. In a pan warm the tortilla until chips have melted then dust with powder sugar! LOVE IT!!!
This next recipe below is easy peasy and I LOVED it! And once again it uses whole wheat tortillas so that is a easy WW staple to keep in your fridge! (I do in mine)
This is just like above as far as the “cooking method” you heat in pan until cheese has melted!
This is 8 WW points…..
Inside the tortilla is……
2 Tablespoons WW cream cheese
Chopped sun dried tomatoes
Great Northern white beans (drained and rinsed)
Goat cheese (only 1 oz)
Enjoy! I had this with a salad which is essentially no points to help fill me up!
Let me know if you try any of these recipes! TGIF!!!
