  2. Woohoo!! I am ready, Liz!! We don’t eat out very often–just for special occasions. I do most of my cooking at home, either with my crockpot or stove. Our youngest son and daughter in love sent me the new complete Weight Watchers cookbook with smart points for my birthday last month! I am going to enjoy following the challenges using it!

  3. I’m so exciting to be kicking off the challenge with you! As for these shrimp, I will definitely be putting them on our menu this week. Love the simplicity of the recipe, which making cooking at home so do-able.
