What's Up Wednesday for Sept. 2020

Since it's the last Wednesday of the month it's time for what's Up Wednesday where I join up with Sheaffer and Shay to answer a few questions.  I just can not believe that it's already the end of the month.  I had my surgery on Monday & got home yesterday afternoon --I had written this post in advance not knowing how I'd be feeling just 2 days post-op.   What We're Eating This Week:  Whatever my husband and/or children plan on making!  I do have a few meals in the freezer (Sheppard's pie, roast beef pot pie, squash casserole, a quiche, etc) but I am perfectly content with whatever anyone feels like making or picking up this week.  What I'm Reminiscing About: My youngest, my "baby", just turned 13 last week-- 13!  I now am officially a mom of all teens and I can't help but think back... man the time really flew by.  Ian holding Evan when we were still in the hospital What I'm Loving: So many delicious fall foods! 

2- Ingredient Dough and 5 Uses for It

If you have even thought of starting Weight Watchers at all in the past year you've probably heard of the 2- ingredient bagels.  I love them but actually use the dough for so much more than just bagels.  I thought I'd share this super simple recipe today and show you some of the ways we've used this dough... so far! 2 ingredients needed (makes 4 servings): 1 cup fat free Greek yogurt 1 cup Self- rising flour. 1.  Homemade pizzas:   When making homemade pizzas we like to make 6 individual pizzas so we can all add our own toppings. I use 1 1/2 cups each of the yogurt and flour then divide the dough into 6 equal portions.  With 1/2 cup fat free mozzarella cheese and a 1/4 cup pizza sauce that makes our pizzas around 7 points for an entire individual pizza compared to 8 or 9 points a slice of restaurant pizza that is huge! 2.  Bagels (of course):   normal bagels run around 9 points each but these bagels are just 3!  When mixing up bagels I tend to use 3 cups o

Weight Watcher's Garlic Breadsticks-- 2 Pts. Each!

I have been wanting to try making my own garlic breadsticks using the Weight Watchers 2 ingredient dough for some time now.  We were having spaghetti one night while I was also making up some 2-ingredient bagels and figured I had the perfect chance to try out a small batch. We loved them!  They weren't exactly like the ones you get at Olive Garden but it hit the spot and with only 2 points each they are a better alternative than store bought garlic bread. Ingredients (to make 4): 1/2 cup fat free Greek yogurt 1/2 cup self- rising flour (with a bit extra for rolling) 1 Tablespoon Brummel and Brown 1 tsp. minced garlic garlic salt In my stand mixer I combined the Greek yogurt and flour using the dough hook.  Once I had a nice dough made I divided it into 4 sections and rolled them with well greased hands on a lightly floured surface until I had a nice breadstick shape.  Then laid them on a parchment lined cookie sheet. After melting the Brummel and Brown spread I mi
