turkey delight

this weekend we went to garrett's sister's house... i've never been there before & it was great. all the nieces and nephews together to do easter - what a blast. i even got to hold bradley a few times this weekend. man, does he smell good. i could sit and listen to him all the live long day.

now i feel a little like a piggie saying this, but i will. i think the (second, after holding bradley) best part of the weekend was the food. it is no secret that i'm not a huge fan of turkey. garrett's family is goo-goo for turkey. you know, like goo-goo for cocoa puffs? i learned this weekend: rightfully so. his mom makes "marinated turkey tenders" and i'm not going to lie... i want the recipe. i ate a lot. (5 points worth, at least) then yesterday, we were lucky to score a little more. and i just finished eating that treat for my lunchy. i'm sad there's not any more left. and then... emity made a delish pasta salad. goodnight!

i'm adjusting to weight watchers... i'm learning that it's a lot about portion control. which i have been very uncontrolled with in the past. and once i've gotten in all of the veggies/fruit that i'm supposed to, i'm not hungry after all. i'm really enjoying my flex/bonus points on the weekends. but during the week, i'm a good girl - i am!

glad you liked the marinated turkey!! It's good stuff. And I'll be sure to get the recipe from my mom.

As for WW, you're doing awesome! Quite the inspiration for me. We're gonna start melting off those pounds! :)

Good to hear that you are liking the weight watchers and the turkey :)

I am pretty sure it is CUCKOO for Cocoa Puffs though...

tib - pretty sure you're right. i knew it was off... but i couldn't place it. i'm not going to change it, cause i'm a dork & i think it's funny.

Thanks for the visit to my house. I feel bad that we didn't get to visit. I'm wondering where the day went. I guess I was running all over to make sure everything was o.k. Big YUM for the turkey right! Good stuff! So, what are you and Garrett doing this weekend? We're coming up and Rylie would LOVE a visit!
