    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!

      It’s delicious over arugula, on top of pasta, with rice, in tortillas as tacos, you name it! We also love serving it with bulgur wheat or freekeh!
