So here we are on day 3 and I am feeling pretty good, we are in the process of moving. Packing takes up alot of my time, then on top of that we found out our lease for the place we are in isn't up when we thought, so this means double the rent for May. Grrrr. Oh well what can I do. I made the tuna casserole yesterday for dinner and it was a hit for my family. I was shocked even my son ate it :) That means it is definately good.
Breakfast: Cheerios - I measured it out with a measuring cup
Coffee with a little cream and sweet and low
Lunch: Salad with chipolte cheddar, turkey lunchmeat, Fat free catalina dressing
also had a side of left over red potatos
Dinner: Tuna Casserole (using the recipe from yesterday)
three pieces of baguette bread
Snack: Strawberry shortcake ( homemade shortcakes, made with jiffy mix)
The shortcakes I made were actually smaller than recommended so they were the perfect snack.
Tomorrow is my first weigh in for this blog. To tell you the truth I am extremely nervous. We will see how I do tomorrow.
Here is another great healthy cheap recipe
Serving Size: 1 cup
This is a recipe I learned while on Weight Watchers. It is not only filling and low in points, but also pretty cheap to make.
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 small onion ($.30 - sometimes to save money I will buy a large onion and just cut it in half)
1 cup cheddar cheese ($4.00 for 2lb brick of cheese)
2 tbsp margarine ($.70 for a box of margarine)
1/2 tsp of pepper
1 (32 oz) pkg of southern-style hash browns (thawed)( $1.99 for one bag)
16 oz container of fat-free sour cream ($1.50)
1 10z can of cream of mushroom soup ($.50)
Pam cooking spray
Spray a baking dish with Pam. Combine all the ingredients and
place in baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
***prices will vary depending on where you live and shop, these prices are based off my shopping, but I always buy sale items and off brand unless name brand is on sale for cheaper)
I don't have the nutrition facts for this one, but I know the WW points are 3 for 1 cup serving, and this serves about 8.
