BBQ Joes...Icecream Sunday...& Southwestern salad oh my.

We have been experimenting on recipes and we found some winners. Weight Watchers has a cool application in which you type in what you have and it finds a recipe that has those ingredients. Here are some of the recipes that we have enjoyed.

BBQ Joe's
This is like the traditional Sloppy Joe's but with BBQ sauce instead of the the sloppy Joe's sauce. Side with a tasty salad. Making this meal 6 points for the BBQ Joe's and 3 points for the salad totaling a 9 point meal.

Hot Brownie Sunday
This desert was made by Andy with applesauce making it low fat topped with Fat free sugar free Ice cream, & smothered in Sugar free chocolate syrup. Believe it or not it came to in points, brownies 3 points, Ice cream for 1/4 of a cup came to 2 points and Chocolate syrup 0 points. Making this desert total 5 points.

Southwestern Chicken Salad
This salsa salad sided with fat free cornbread was so filling and delish. I add to mine 1/4 of a Avocado, and cherry tomato's... the points came to, chicken salad 5 points for a 1 1/2 cups, serving 2 1/2 inch by 2 inch piece of corn bread is 2 points totalling to a 8 point meal.

Sushi & Beyond

I had a annual work party at Family Fun Classic Center in Layton. Last year we had taken sushi for our potluck item and it was a hit for only the ones that were fortunate to get a piece. This year I had so many c0-workers request sushi; the people demanded it, so we delivered.
I guess you can say we made Sushi & beyond. We had made 6-7 rolls, 2 all veggies, 2 just crab meat, 2 everything rolls, and 1 traditional roll.
One roll of our sushi is 5 points (Weight Watchers points) Taste of Sushi in our mouths priceless.
....... guess how much leftovers we came home with...... Zip, Nota, Nothing. That is right the plate was all but licked clean. I it was a hit again.....

P.s. We decided to adopt a baby......
Just kidding.... Isn't she cute... She is my bosses little girl, she was a love bug.

20 lbs to 26.4 lbs

Can't believe it Andy and I are on our way down to smallville.... not the show Smallville but in our clothes size.... Andy has hit the mile marker 26.4 lbs lost as of Thursday the 22nd. For me I've hit 20 lbs... lost. We are so excited and I'm excited for this coming Thursday cause I had a huge Saturday I worked for 7 hours in the yard with 10 mins of rest so here is hoping for a big drop in weight this week. I can't believe we have gone this far.
But crossing my fingers that the rest off the weight comes off as fast.
If it doesn't I'm okay with that as long as I'm losing and not gaining that is all that really matters.

Bountiful Baskets

Andy & I heard about Bountiful Baskets from family and decided to try it out. What it is a company that helps to make the coast of fresh vegg's and fruits a little lower. They drop off the delivery at random drop off points and you bring in your own baskets or container to take the food home. It's a pretty nice set up we spent $28 dollars got 5 loafs bread, 2 bunch's of bananas, 7 apples, 16 red potatoes, bag or carrots, 1 pineapple, a head of Romaine lettuce, black berries, Beet leaves, cherry tomatoes, container of mushrooms, Cantaloupe, & Broccoli.

Little Mermaid

How funny was this I dyed my hair with my mom on Monday and my hair went brown orange and my mom's we were afraid it went peach color. When my mom's hair was dried it turned out great. My hair on the other hand got quite a funny comment. A lady at work said that I looked like Ariel the Little Mermaid.... I don't see it but maybe you can....

Watchers of Time

Well I've had a hard time updating our blog... some exciting news Andy has found a new hobbie it's teaching old people how to use the computers. It's a volinteer job in Magna. The 1st day I went with him to help organize and be a scribe. We were trying to find out what they knew and what needed to be taught. It was so funny cause one of the ladies I swear was going to have a panic attack. She thought that she had to know everything we were talking about and kept repeating her self "I don't know even how to trun on the darn thing on! How do you expect me to know what the heck your talking about."
After much convencing we told her this class was for us to know what to teach. My Hubby sure knows how to make friends with older people. Already he has bubbies and it has only been 3 days that he has taught. I'm very proud of him, I guess the older people see what I see in him a big cheerful heart. Man I love him.
Beside that he has been keeping himself bussy with helping out family and friends by fixing computers, babysitting kids, to preparing classes for his volinteer job.
Me on the other had I'm just up to no good ;o>.... working hard or like my dad says, "Hardly working." With my spare time I've gotten pretty addicted to Cafe World, and having the kitchen cleaned... (I wondering if the cleaning fix is do to the Cafe World game.)
Then I've been going crazy with crafts I've defiantly have the Crafty Virus or something.
All in all that has been our life for the last few weeks...
Ohhhh... can't forget the most important thing Andy and I have been doing Weight Watchers. In a month we have lost total together 28 pounds, Andy 15 almost 16, me 13. I'm pretty happy that we were blessed to have this program Weight Watchers in our life. Thank you to all who are supporting us, we love you.
