Dinner =)

I know I was going to make enchilada casserole, but ended up not feeling like cooking. So, split some soup (2P+) with Dh & W, and made a sandwich thin w/ deli turkey (2 slices), tsp (or less) of mayo, WW cheese, and tomatoes (total 7P+). So, yummy!

Cooking & New Recipes!

I've been really making an effort to try out new recipes & since I'm cooking all our meals I'm looking for quick and easy ideas to start with. Last week I made a turkey enchilada casserole- really yummy (& super easy)! I also did a sort of chili recipe in the crock-pot BUT I forgot to brown the ground beef first :/ I ended up taking it out and cooking it on the stove-top- it actually came out alright. I also did a breakfast scramble- kind of came up with on my own, but I did scrambled eggs, salsa and LF shredded cheese. It was pretty yummy too.

One of my favorite (& easy) dinners is what we had last night- boca burgers and sweet potato fries. We also had black beans, I'll usually do a different veggie with this dinner. It's really scrumptious and all & all (including black beans, cheese, bun, everything) 13 P+ which is high, but for a burger and fries I don't think it's awful. It really satisfies my cravings- burger and fries is probably my FAVORITE food :)

Today I'm trying out this recipe from WW-

Nook Color LOVE!

I also wanted to mention how much I'm loving my Christmas present- the Nook Color! It's getting me back into reading more---which I love! It makes it easy because I can just carry it in my purse and read whenever I get a chance. I just finished The Hunger Games Series (HIGHLY RECOMMEND) and am starting The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo- however I've got a good list of other books I really want to read too!
