Top Two Tuesday

Top Two Things You Splurge On:
1.) I think that $5 and 8 Weight Watchers points is a bit much for a Starbucks Nonfat No Whip Grande White Chocolate Mocha stirred but some days, I spend the $5 & the 8 Weight Watchers points. It's probably the points that gets me the most.

2.) Expensive purses. Mitch doesn't get it but for my birthday he got it. A new Coach that is! I love love love expensive purses and think they are an investment.

So you've got mine, now you go play too!

Get in my Belly!!!!

I'm doing Weight Watchers with my BBF, Becky. Tonight, I made Mexican Lasagna. Serves 8 @ 8 Weight Watchers points..... So good I had to share.


1 lb. extra lean ground beef
large onion
1 cup lettuce
1 cup tomato
1 cup cilantro
15oz. can of black beans
2 cups of salsa
2 tbsp taco seasoning mix
1/4 cup fat free Italian dressing
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1 cup 2% shredded cheddar cheese
6 medium flour tortillas
3/4 cup fat free sour cream.

1.) In large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat, drain. Stir in salsa, beans, dressing, taco seasoning, and cumin. Place 3 tortillas in 2 qt. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Layer half the mixture, cheese and sour cream. Repeat.
2.) Cover and bake @ 400 degrees for 25 minutes. Uncover, bake 5-10 minutes or until heated through. Let stand 5 minutes before topping with lettuce, tomato, and cilantro.
**We don't use the tomato or cilantro AND instead of putting lettuce on the whole dish, we put it on each serving because lettuce is weird in the microwave. So good!

AND we've got Hungry Girl's Bananarama Wafer Puddin' in the fridge 'setting'..... I'll let you know how that turns out.

(1/6th recipe: 125 calories, 1.5g fat, 330mg sodium, 27g carbs, 1g fiber, 12g sugars, 3g protein = 2 Points)
For serious pudding fans only, please!
2 cups cold 8th Continent Light Vanilla Soymilk (or another light vanilla soymilk**)
1 small pkg. (1 oz.) JELL-O Sugar Free Fat Free Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
24 Reduced Fat Nilla Wafers
2 medium bananas; sliced
*Optional: Cool Whip Free; for topping

Combine pudding mix and soymilk in a bowl. Beat with wire whisk for 2 minutes or until well blended. Set aside. In a medium glass bowl or casserole dish, arrange a layer of wafers and then a layer of banana slices. Continue alternating layers until all wafers and banana slices are gone. Top with pudding and let it seep down in between wafer/banana layers. Refrigerate for a couple of hours. Once ready to serve, distribute into 6 serving dishes (about 1/2 cup each). Add whipped topping if desired. Serves 6.
