Weight Watchers, Giveaways, and other Ramblings

Happy Monday!

We finally woke up this morning to sun shine after a weekend of rain and cloudy skies. We were supposed to head to Rennfest again this weekend and celebrate my friends wedding anniversary there. But the rain kept us indoors. So we ended up being couch potatoes on Saturday and on Sunday we spent our day cleaning.

On Saturday morning I went to Weight Watchers to weigh in and I lost one pound. I am only 2 pounds away from reaching my goal for the month of October and loosing 5% of my weight.

One of the many things I love about Fall and even Winter is the comfort foods. From Stews, to baked goods and everything else in between it is a foodies paradise. But with my obsession of becoming healthier and loosing weight, I have been looking to healthier options to satisfy the foodie in me. Which led me to purchasing Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook. From past experience using WW cookbooks, their recipes are great.

Speaking of recipes, at the WW meeting one of the group members shared a recipe with the rest of us. It is a 2 point per serving Pumpkin Mousse.

Pumpkin Mousse:
1 15oz Can Pumpkin
1 8oz Tub "Free" Cool Whip
1 1oz Sugar free/Fat free Butterscotch Pudding
1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp/ Ground Ginger
1/8 tsp. Ground Cloves

Mix dry ingredients first. Then whip all ingredients together. Divide into dessert cups and chill at least 1 hour.
Optional: Top with Honey Bunches of Oats or Fat Free Reddi Whip.

Makes 6 servings at 2 points each serving.

I have not tried this yet. We went to the grocery store last night and they did not have any pumpkin on hand. But I will hopefully be making this next weekend. That is if they have any pumpkin in stock.

I did not get to post last night, all I was able to do was send a quick message to the winner of my giveaway. The winner of my first giveaway was Meandering Mel. I will be shipping out the package tomorrow, so look out for it in a few days.

As if this post is not long enough, the last thing I want to say is.......

If you have not seen Where The Wild Things Are. YOU NEED TO GO SEE IT!! Mr.P and I went to the IMAX theater near our place and saw it on Friday. It is such a cute and good movie.

How was your weekend?

Ciao!! xoxo

We had a good weekend. :) Spent time with family AND friends, and partied too. :)

Sucks that Rennfest got rained out. It was raining this morning when I woke up, and I buried my head, skipped my first class, and went back to sleep. (I'm so terrible...)

I'm so excited to get your package!!!
