Ok so yesterday I made Cream of Broccoli soup for lunch and a Sour cream coffee cake for lunch. The soup was ok not to creamy. But good for weight watchers lol The cake was YUMMY! It had blueberry's in it. I was in the mood for Spaghetti so I tried a Spaghetti with meatballs (turkey), I must say this is the first dish I made that i wasn't happy with. The sauce called for thyme but I didn't use it cause I am not a big fan so the sauce ended up tasting sweet. As for the "meatballs" My daughter LOVED them but as for me...not so much. The taste was good but they were to mushy. If their is ever a recipe you want (if anyone is out their) let me know and I will post it. Until next time:)

Apple cider Chicken

Ok so I decided to make a recipe called Apple Cider Chicken. I was a Little scared because the first instructions it gave was to peel, slice and core an apple.....ok that is fine but then it said to saute it in 1 tbls of oil????? That is a first for me. Needless to say It turned out very Yummy. I served it on a bed of wide noodles with steamed mixed veggies. Not sure yet what I will make tonight but I cant wait! Until then ........

Orange Chicken tonight

Good Evening. Tonight I made an Orange chicken with steamed zucchini and squash and a backed potato! The Orange Chicken was fantastic!!! Who new it would be so easy to cook such a healthy meal. For desert I cooked a log roll cake. (chocolate with choc frosting) and it was so low fat but you couldn't even tell. I love cooking and I think i eat less when i cook which is obviously a good thing. Well that is it for tonight. I will let you all know how weight watchers goes tomorrow (yikes).
