Well it’s another day here in Carol’s Corner. Glad you’re here. Get comfortable and stay while. I’m having a great time at my daughter’s. Also having some bonding time with my youngest granddaughter. She is such a trip. She is quite the character. She’ll be 4 on the 24th of April. It’s been a good day all around. I got 4 new member’s in my Facebook group and a new blog follower here. I like those kinds of days. Today’s picture is all about the bling . This is the closest thing to a sweatshirt I own. The one group I posted my pics to, just loved this outfit and my bracelets, that you will see below.
When I wear black I’ve been layering these with my FitBit band.
It’s funny, both my group and another one I post at ,told me my bracelet looked like an Oreo cookie, and it really does doesn’t it? So tonight we start something new. I will be doing a series of blogs on lower calorie ethnic dishes. My first request was for Mexican Casseroles , so we’re starting with all things Mexican. We’re going to begin with a Mexican Casserole from Weight Watchers that is 6.5 WW points. I am going to link the recipe, but will tell you what’s in it. Ingredients are:Extra lean ground beef, onion, Jalapeño slices, Tomatoes( fresh or diced) ,Whole kernel corn, Black Beans, Taco Seasoning Mix, Corn Tortillas, Non-Fat Sour Cream, Reduced Fat Mexican Cheese, and Fresh Cilantro. http://www.food.com/recipe/mexican-casserole-6-5-weight-watcher-points-135814.
