Dinner And Dessert!

I spent some time this afternoon perusing WW friendly recipes from my vast array of recipe binders (I currently have 4 binders filled with recipes) and cookbooks. It's a sickness, I know, and one that I have inherited from my Mom who has a roomful of cookbooks, recipe binders and past issue cooking magazines. Sorry I "outed"you, Mom!!! While looking through my binders, I came across a recipe for Baked Buffalo Chicken which looked easy enough so that's what I made for dinner tonight. I put chicken drumsticks in a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray, seasoned them with s & p and baked them at 400 degrees for 30 min. While they were baking, I melted 1 tbsp. light butter with 1/4 c. Frank's Hot Sauce and a dash of celery salt. After 30 min., I poured the hot sauce mixture over the chicken drumsticks and let them bake for another 10-15 minutes. I took the skin off of my little guy before adding the sauce, but left the others with skin which got nice and crispy. The family loved it - hooray!! I served mine with a side of carrot sticks and cucumber spears with 2 tbsp. Marie's Light Blue Cheese Dressing for dipping, and also a 3 oz. serving of baked fries. A fun dinner, all for 6 POINTS...



I had plenty of room for dessert (as always!) and thought I would make something special, but didn't get around to it :( So, I took out my yummy Deep Chocolate Vitatop, mixed up the PB2 and then saw this blast from the past in my kitchen cabinet...
Can you see where I'm going with this???? I added 1 tbsp. of marshmallow fluff ( 20 cal., 0 gr. fat = 0 POINTS!) to the PB2 and heated it in the micro for a few seconds until the fluff got melty and mixed with the PB2! I know!!!! This is the best dessert - Deep Chocolate Vitatop with PB2 Marshmallow Frosting...


* Drooling while posting*...
I'm pretty sure I can save up 2 POINTS to have this every night!

Well, it was a good "on program" day today which is a great thing because the BLBE2 is officially underway! My teammates that have weighed-in today are off to an awesome start; I hope to be right up there with them this Thurs.! GO TEAM ANGIE!
Have a nice night =)
