You see, visiting my parents requires a
Well, I think that's enough time on the computer for now...I'm sitting on the deck and want to enjoy my smoothie, the beautiful weather and the dear company of my parents.
By for now all...
Today we went to Appleton with my sister and niece to shop at World Market, the mall and several other places. Afterwards we came back and cooked up this yummy meal together.
32 oz fat free Chicken Broth
16 oz Velveeta cheese (2 %)
1 bag Normandy Veggies frozen
1 can Rotel
Bring chicken broth to a boil, add frozen veggies and cook as directed on the package. Cut Velveeta cheese into chunks and add to pot once veggies are mostly cooked. Add Rotel and simmer covered for 30 minuntes.

My sister made these delicious appetizer cream cheese stuffed mini peppers (she actually used the Jalapeno Popper recipe from the WW website). Perhaps she'll leave the recipe as a comment to this blog (hint, hint Kris!)
She also made her famous yummy tomato salad. Halved cherry tomatoes, halved orange super-sweet tomatoes, and red onion. A little sea salt, a little black pepper, stir it all together and voila! A tasty 0 WW PointsPlus values side dish!
It was such a nice treat to spend time together in the kitchen cooking, laughing and talking as opposed to going out to eat! Not only did our wallets find relief, our waistlines did too! Eating in also allowed us to savor crusty European garlic bread along with our soup.
This green salad was made by our girls! It was a delight to have them in the kitchen with us and they really enjoyed chopping and slicing all the veggies...hmmm have to remember that in the future...I can always use help in kitchen!
Looking ahead...we had our dear friends in for dinner after church on Saturday night. On the menu was Slow Cooker Enchiladas, fresh guacamole and chips and salsa. It was fabulous! I promise to post the recipe soon. Until then my friends be sure to relish those moments with friends and/or family where you enjoy a meal together and each other's company!
