  1. Thank you for this tip! I will be heading to Lowes tomorrow to try and pick some up. I would love to find something that works to relieve my hands!!!!
  2. Shovel out from the snow, sled ride with kids, play some Wii Fit games and then snuggle in for a movie and hot coffee/tea, while I've got some chilli cooking on the stove.
  3. Although I am only back on plan for a month, I've been a WW member on and off for years. I have to say that so far I am pretty happy with the P+....at least after I got over the initial shock last Monday of seeing the increased point values in some of my staples. I was scared last week to eat some of my favorties like hot cooked oat bran, but I'm finding with the extra points added into my allowance I have been able to eat the grains I love. I am just not eating breads, grains, pasta, rice, etc. with every meal. I am a little nervous about the 0 points for fruit, but I'm just being careful not to mindlessly munch on it. Morning and afternoon snacks are my extra fruit servings....it's usually a staple with my breakfast. So three servings a fruit a day and then my veggies with lunch and dinner. I'm a big fan of the Biggest Loser and have a couple cookbooks from the show. Really the new P+ has a lot of similarities to the suggestions from BL and what they talk about in their cookbooks. And, PB2 (regular and chocolate) have become my favorite way to feel like I'm having an indulgence without the guilt. I was very happy that they are both 1 pt when mixed w/ water (considering I had just ordered 4 jars online the week before the big P+ change). I haven't tried with healthy oil - but may have to do that.
  4. I tried the Key Lime Pie Yogurt yesterday from Fiber One. For one point it was a little slice of heaven! I've also had the vanilla flavor and I like it as well. These are small cups, but they have been a great one point snack that tides me over in the afternoon.
  5. I haven't logged in all week, but I have been running! I was able to run 2 days out of week one. Unfortunately, we have had a turn in the weather and are back below freezing, so day three hasn't happenned (and I don't have a treadmill). Luckily we should be back in the 40s tomorrow!!!! I'm planning on hitting the pavement. Way to go Sheri! We'll keep at it!
  6. The weather has finally warmed up in New York State and I ran my first day of C25K this morning! I am so pleased with myself to get out there and do it. It has been years (and we're talking 20+ at this point) since I've ran. My goal is to run in the Race for the Cure this May.
  7. I like most of the WW choices on the menu, but I must say that the broccoli is disgusting. I kept thinking they were putting butter on it b/c it was so slimy and greasy tasting. Turns out it is some sort of garlic sauce on it. After sending my broccoli back on about 4 visits in a row, my husband finally asked the manager about it and told us what it really was. I now know to order my broccoli dry......
  8. Love, love, love these! I have one at work every morning with my cup of tea.....I need that mid morning snack to get me through to lunch time since I eat breakfast so early. I get a box of 20 at Sam's club for $6.88. Not a bad price compared to the small box at a grocery store.
  9. I tried this this week and LOVE IT! I thought with all the newbies to CORE, people might want to try this one, so I am bumping it up. The only adjustment I made was to only use 1/2 cup of splenda. It was plenty sweet. DH and DD Loved it too!!!!
  10. I finally made it last night! I wasn't sure if I'd like it after it was done cooking....But, I put three portions in containers and took one for lunch today. What a surprise.......I loved it! I think it is a keeper too. The cumin is definately a different flavor to me and I think that's why I wasn't sure if I'd like it. I'll be making it again. Did you use beef or veggie broth?......I actuallly used a can of each. I found it a bit salty and may add some water next time.
  11. Thank you for bumping this up! I bought some lentils and haven't found a recipe I wanted to try until I saw this. I think I'll be making it in the next day or two!
  12. I made this the other day but used ff/sf cheesecake pudding mix. I liked the flavor w/ this mix.
  13. I LOVE chili and don't even pull out a recipe to make it anymore. I just start throwing things in the pan. My recipe evolved from this one that I have in a WW cookbook that I found a few years ago. It is easy as can be and I just dug out the cookbook for the original and then I'll list what I make....... Beef and Bean Chili (WW New Complete Cookbook 1998) 4servings (6pts each) 4tsp olive oil 2 onions, chopped 1/2 carrot chopped 1/2 celery stalk chopped 1/4 green pepper, chopped 3-4 garlic cloves minced 1 tsp minced deveined seeded jalapeno pepper 3/4 pound ground beef 1 tbsp chili powder 2 tsp ground cumin 1 tsp dried oregano leaves 1/2 tsp ground coriander 1 14oz can diced tomatoes 1 16 oz can red kidney beans (drained and rinsed) 1/2 tsp salt pinch of freshly ground pepper 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro 1/2 cup nonfat sour cream 1/4 cup chopped red onion In a large nonstick Dutch oven or saucepan, heat the oil. Saute the onions, carrot, celery, bell pepper, garlic and jalapeno untinl the onions are translucent, about 15 minutes. Add the beef and cook, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink. Stir in the chili powder, cumin, oregano, and coriander; cook, stiring 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, beans, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer gently, partailly covered, stirring occasionally, until the flavors are blended, about 20 minutes. Stir in the cilantro. Serve topped with sour cream, red onion and some more cilantro, if you like. What it has become in my house........ 1 pound ground beef (96/4) 1 onion, chopped 1 bell pepper chopped 3 garlic cloves, minced Put the above in a large pan and brown ground beef. Once browned, I put the meat mixture in a strainer to remove any excess fat. I put pan back on the stove and add: 2 cans no salt added kidney beans (rinsed and drained) 1 can diced tomatoes 1 can Rotel tomatoes w/ green chilies Chopped carrots (usually I just chop a handful of baby carrots since they are always in the fridge) Chili powder to taste (1-2 tablespoons) Cumin to taste (1/2 tablespoon) Oregano (2 tsp) I add the meat back in to the pan. I let the chili simmer for about an hour. This makes a big pan, and I usually will make it on the weekend and take a bowl to lunch every day. I do top it w/ a little ff sour cream and ff cheddar cheese sometimes. I think I'll go make some today since it is only 21 degrees out this morning! Brrrr..........
  14. I did finally make these a couple days ago and they were yummy! I did add some minced garlic to my batch........I add garlic to almost everything. I froze some of the uncooked to pull out and pop in the crockpot another day too. Thanks again for the recipe!
  15. I've found a couple different cornbread recipes on the site, and couldn't decide what I wanted to really try, so I got adventurous this morning and made up my own. My family liked it and it went great with some chili I had made. 2 cups cornmeal 2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 1 Tbls Molly McButter 1 Tbls Splenda 1 egg, beaten 1 Tbls, canola oil 1 cup fat free milk 1/2 cup fat free yogurt Sift the dry ingredients into bowl. In separate bowl mix the wet ingredient. Add to dry, mixing until just moistened. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-22 minutes. I baked it in a 10 inch pie plate, which worked great.
