We went pomegranate picking this evening and called it FHE- that counts right? Now I've got a bunch of pomegranates sitting in my fridge, so I thought I'd share a Weight Watchers friendly recipe for a refreshing apple pomegranate salad:
1/2 container of cool whip
Mix it all up and divide into 5 servings- 2 points per servings. Its quite yummy- kinda sweet and nutty at the same time.
I need to find more ways to eat these pomegranates. Let me know if you have any tasty recipes that call for pomegranate. There's a Arab mezza dish that involves walnuts and pomegranates... I can't quite remember what its called, maybe mahamara (I'm sure my dad knows or perhaps Petra has eaten it recently). IT IS TO DIE FOR! In fact, I will die of jealously if my mom and dad are able to enjoy this dish over in Cairo. Sigh. I'm totally crazing some delicious Arab food right now.
Here's another WW friendly recipe that I made tonight- Pumpkin muffins.
1 box of cake mix (chocolate or spice)
1 small can of pumpkin
1/2 cup of water
Mix ingredients together and bake according to the box. Makes about 24 muffins at 2 points per muffin. Clark even liked these. I'd say pumpkin deserts are my absolute favorite sweets in the whole world, so these muffins kinda fill that void in my life right now. Yum. But not quite as Yum as a good, soft pumpkin chocolate chip cookie (like the ones Jannalee made once).
Wow, its a little ridiculous how often I think about food.
