I heart the Hungry Girl

First off to the ladies who won the books last week, they are being mailed today :o)~ We are a two car family again.. life is good!! :o)~

So, yesterday I went and bought the Hungry Girls new cookbook, because I am addicted. I am addicted and need a 12 step program. She simply rocks, she has recipes in there that are just amazing! So far we have tried three (yea I know I said I bought it yestetrday.. I did lol) Last night with dinner we had creamed corn cheese bites, on WW they are 1 point each and yummy!! (46 calories, 2 g fat, and .05 fiber) I was impressed and that is now a keeper in our already dog eared book. We had them with the Ham mom sent over and a Swiss and tomato mac and cheese (thats not WW that is all my grandma! but we were able to make it WW friendly).

So then we decided that it would be best to make a good dessert. Good meal, good dessert.. leftover points = easy oven-baked s'mores -stuffed bananas. Did you just hear the choirs of angels sing? Oh they did my friends, they sang loud and proud. This was just an amazing little sweet and not all that bad for you. (it packs a 152 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, and 3g of fiber)

Ok so then this morning.. I want something different Chobani yogurt while delicious needed something.. I was not sure what but I knew where to look...Insert Overstuffed peanut butter 'n banana french toast. now this packs you full of calories (but i had only had 12 ounces of water so figured well why not? (327 calories , 8.5 fat and 7.25 fiber) Yea I know! its high but holy moly!! it was so good! and I am FULL really full. I won't be eating my morning snack and that is ok because I had a fruit in the french toast! This does pack in a full 6 points but not so bad considering!! Yum-0!!

I am sure there will be many more recipes used out of this book this week, to include the grits and shrimp (now I am a this a southern thing? I had never heard of it but hey I am willing to try it!!) On a whole though from looking through the book, I think this will quickly be a new favorite. :o)~
