Comfort foods & an apple a day...

When it gets cold outside, I like my comfort food which the number one has got to be real, homemade mashed potatoes and gravy. Peel those potatoes, cut them up in cubes, boil em, strain em, put the butter (I use a vegetable-good-for-you margarine) and (skim) milk in there, mash em up and voila - yuuuu-um!!!

I have been using a packet mixed with water to make my chicken gravy and that has been yummy on top. Mmmm-mmm!!!

Peeled and cubed potatoes Yum!


Along with those mashed potatoes, why not coat some chicken legs in an egg wash, load the bread crumbs on and throw them on the barbeque? We don't think it's too late to barbeque in the winter (propane tank) and by Gosh, it was yummy.

Italian bread crumbs

Chicken drumsticks (inexpensive at the warehouse store)

Apple and Laughing Cow Cheese (Tiny in Weight Watcher's points! Halleluah!!)

I discovered 'Laughing Cow' off television but my Mother told me where to find in our local grocery store. Imagine my delight to find that one little wedge (and they are pretty small) is only 1 point in Weight Watcher's land. Not to mention eating an apple is a goood thing, also quite loow in points, and in the middle you'll notice Carr's crackers (a foo foo cracker that I found out about while on ANOther diet:). I recently read that eating an apple a day really can be just the thing for most of us, it even has a special anti-oxidant called a riboflavinoid, which I may have spelled incorrectly, found in the skin of the apple that is Oh-So-Good for you!
Have a great evening!
