Look, I'm domestic AND skinny.

I've lost 8 pounds on Weight Watchers!
In celebration I'm going to share with you
a recipe that I have made 3 times in the last 3 weeks.
How domestic of me, huh?


(this is not a picture of food that I made)

Mini White Pizzas with Vegetables
Points Value: 5

4 (6 inch) Whole Wheat pitas
Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
1 Medium zucchini, thinly sliced
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion, separated into rings
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup light garlic and herbs spreadable cheese (such as Alouette Light)
6 tablespoons Asiago Cheese

(I use hummus instead of Alouette and I add crumbled Feta
sometimes I even add Rotisserie Chicken)

1. Preheat Broiler
2.Place pitas on baking sheet: broil 3 minutes
3.Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; coat pan with cooking spray.
Add zucchini, onion, black pepper, and salt. saute 3 minutes or until vegetables
are crisp-tender
4. Remove pitas from oven, spread 2 tablespoons garlic and herb spreadable cheese over pita.
Top evenly with vegetables and Asiago cheese. Broil 3 minutes or until cheese melts.

Then, I pop open a Topo Chico.

Aye Papi!!!

This is the best Mineral Water I have ever had. You can get it at any Mexican Market or you might luck out and they'll have it available on the "International Aisle" of your grocery store. You can make it super yummy by squeezing a little lime in it. You could even get crazy and put in a shot of Vodka.

MMMMM...Muy Bueno!!

BTW...thanks for your well wishes yesterday. I think that I've nursed Griffin back to health and the rest of us have not come down with it at this point. Whew...that was a close one!

This looks delish!!! May have to try soon. Wonder if my kids would eat it...hmmm..

I am frustrated with myself b/c when I work out hard, like I have been, I am STARVING all the time...and I eat even more. And so I'm not losing weight. If I want to lose, I have to go hungry. Some of it is because of my thyroid, but....argh. So frustrating. Beginning to think I should just stop exercising! Then I wouldn't be so hungry!

What a great recipe! In my quest to lose weight I think I will try it this weekend.

I haven't been experimenting with recipes at all and I really need to. Living on processed food is no way to lose weight.
