Weight Watchers Taco Soup
Let me first state that I have missed blogging.
But more importantly, I weighed-in today. I lost 2.6 pounds last week. Yay!! I have lost a grand total of 9.6 pounds in two weeks. Oh yeah baby. That loss brings my current weight down to…….. (scroll down for the magic number)
Yeah right. Like I am really going to announce my weight to the world. I had ya going though huh?
Also, today was the first day that I left my house with baby in tow without the aid of The Hub. Which is no big deal. However, it is a little difficult when one has an EXTREMELY spoiled 3-week-old baby. Someone must be holding him at all times or Tater screams bloody murder.
I have timed my baby. Once I lay him down in his bed or put him in his swing, I have exactly 10 seconds before all Hell breaks loose. So, as much as I hate to admit it, the poor little guy just has to cry sometimes. It is really very difficult to take a leak while holding a baby.
Then there is showering. I take my personal hygiene very serious. I was NOT leaving my house today without a shower. But, Tater would not let me put him down long enough to take one. (I can’t shower in under 10 seconds.) I contemplated not going to Weight Watchers because of my dilemma, but decided that it is just to important to me to miss. So, I pulled his little basinet to the bathroom door, put him inside, and hopped in the shower. He screamed the ENTIRE time. The instant I picked him up, all was well. I put my make-up on while holding a baby. (Where’s my award for that?)
He really loves to be cuddled.
Anyhoo, the main point to this post is a Weight Watchers recipe. (Yes. I cooked. Great gobs of gooseshit Batman, I cooked!!!) I haven’t cooked anything, literally ANYTHING, since I delivered the spoiled Tater, so today was kinda monumental. I put the baby in his swing while I threw this together and guess what he did? He screamed.
He stopped completely as soon as I picked him up. It’s quite cute actually. (Is it awful that I find that entertaining?)
In my neck of the woods, every WW’s member has tried this at some point.
Weight Watchers Taco Soup…..
1pound lean ground beef, browned and drained (I used lean ground turkey)
1 onion, diced
3 cans beans (chili, kidney, black, or whatever you prefer)
1 can diced tomatoes
1 – 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups water
1 can corn
1 – 4 ozcan diced green chilies
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 pkg ranch dressing mix
Mix together and heat thoroughly. 2 points per cup. (omit meat and corn for 1 point servings.)
That’s it for now. Lord knows when I’ll get around to cooking again, so it could be a little while before I’m back. Hopefully it will just be a couple of days.
