GOOD MORNING MAGNOLIAS
A gorgeous day in the neighborhood. Definitely top down weather as we go up to Ojai to get our mail and deliver the stuff my mom wanted from Wal-Mart and her birthday present and spend a bit of time there. We are going early so as not to be there at meal time for it is a low point day - 18 - for me and I just flat don't trust her.
She is a fablous cook and always has a cobler or pie or something smelling good in that oven and it is a killer. Incidently - she is thin and so is my father. I have learned to tell her "no" graceously but sometimes my coping mechanisms are very thin and especially on a day where I don't have much lee-way.
I made a batch of one of the WW breakfast
recipes I have that calls for instant oatmeal last night. I had one for breakfast and it was great with a cup of hazelnut coffee.
Well - I have my instant oatmeal packets and my instant grits packages in the same plastic container and YEP I used one of each and you know what ~ they turned out good. I will do that again. The recipe makes 4 huge cookies and they are yummy at 3 Points each and filling. This time I used chopped apricots and I will also do that again. I have another WW recipe for breakfast bars that looks good but I haven't tried it yet but when I do I will post it when I bake them if they turn out good.
3 POINTS each
Mix the following together well:
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup applesauce
3 packets Splenda
3 oz instant oatmeal
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup raisins or dried fruit
1 1/3 cups dry skim milk powder
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Divide the dough into 4
s (it will be a bit sticky)
Place cookies on a sprayed
Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.
They are done when a wooden toothpick comes out clean.
Yield: 4 soft large
I can imagine how your house smelled yesterday. I love the smell of roasting turkey. Dressing ~ love that stuff so we don't have it often either. I am doing a turkey breast on Thursday and it is a high point day for me so it will work out. Yes, Cindy is the gal from Canada that moved to the USA over a year ago and is married to a wonderful man that we know and they bought a house and now have a baby. Life is good.
You will do fine on Thanksgiving day - isn't it great how WW allows us to save up points for a special occasion.
Jean hasn't been moved over here yet - I think
she is still stuck over on the other server thinking we are not posting for we are over here on the new server yaking away.
Everyone have a good Monday ...... spend your points wisely.
