$.75/2 chocolate chips
$1.50/2 refrigerated cookie dough
$1/2 Carnation evaporated milk
$1/2 Libby's pure pumpkin
1 box devils food cake mix
1 can (15 oz) solid pack pumpkin
Mix together. Do not add anything else that is mentioned on the box. It only takes these 2 ingredients. That's all. Mixture will be very thick (and you will be tempted to add something, but don't.) Place in muffin tins, sprayed with non stick spray. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes. This makes 12 muffins.
1 Muffin is 180 calories, 2.5 G fat, 37 carbs, 2.5 G fiber, 2.5 G protein = 3 WW points
1 (16 ounce) can pumpkin
1 (1 1/2 ounce) box sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
1 (8 ounce) container fat-free cool whip
pumpkin spice(to taste)
Combine all ingredients in order. Chill for 2 hours.
1/8 tsp table salt
Thanks to Common"cents"ical for the link to the coupons!
Note: I think that in my last post. I was just saying I gained 2 pounds, but really for a little over a month, I have been yo-yo ing! Lose 2 gain 2 etc. I know that I had not been doing everything right and was getting tired of the constant battle. Sorry if that did not come through on the post.

I know I have abandoned this blog for awhile now. Please forgive me. I had sick kids for about two weeks and I have been feeling truly overwhelmed. I know that this has affected my weight loss too. I went to weigh in last night and I had gained 2 pounds. While that's not enough to make me worry, I know it is not getting me any closer to my goal! The great thing about Weight Watchers is when you get off track, you can get right back on and hopefully by doing that, I will see some better numbers at the scale next Tuesday. So, I am rededicating myself as I start this week today. Here is my plan:
1. 15-30 minutes of activity at least 6 days this week
2. Drink 6-8 cups of water
3. Journal (I did no journal last week and that was part of my problem!)
4. 5 Fruits and veggies
5. Get in my 2 dairy's!
6. Write at least one blog article a day (this is a huge encourager to me!)
I will return later today to tell you how my day went. If I have ever been an encouragement to you through this blog, please leave me a comment of encouragement because I really need it now. Thanks!
Welcome to Watchin' What We Eat Wednesday! This week is the Halloween Edition. Next week is any recipe goes. Here you can find the upcoming themes so you can plan ahead. If you can't find a theme related recipe just post something don't feel bad. Sharing is what this meme is all about!
I really hope people have not totally quit on me because I love getting to see new recipes and I love Halloween and would love to see what you all come up with on lightened treats for Halloween. Here is a great article about surviving Halloween too!
To enter your recipe, just sign your name onto the Mr. Linky provided at the bottom and put your recipe title in parentheses, like this Lorie (recipe name here).
First, here is a list of a lot of Halloween candy and the nutritional facts and Weight Watchers Points, this might help you decide what you want to eat on Halloween if you really want to eat something on Halloween.
Rolo Pretzel Turtles
Rolo chocolate candies
Preheat your oven to 350 . Upwrap your Rolos and set aside. Place pretzels on baking sheet. Top with a Rolo. Bake in oven for 3-5 minutes, until the chocolate just begins to melt. The Rolo should be soft but not completely melted. Remove from oven, place on cooling rack and immediately squish the chocolate with a Halloween colored M&M if you want. Watch the caramel oooze out.

Friendly reminder- Check your points if you eat the whole can. 1 + 1 does not always equal 2 in WW world!
