Yesterday I made a crock pot full of chili. I make chili different every time depending on what I have on hand. We had Chili last night and again for dinner tonight. Plus I have enough for another dinner and probably a couple lunches left in the freezer. I figured out that each 1 cup serving of Chili cost 50 cents and had 5 weight watchers points plus.
Tomorrow I am going to make Chicken Sandwich Filling in the crock pot.
I tried to make this recipe for home made flour tortillas from Pennies & Pancakes. I liked this recipe, but it was a lot of work. I made 17 tortillas and still had almost half the dough ball left. I decided to freeze it for later. I'm not sure if the savings is worth all the work when I get a 10 pack of tortillas from Aldi. I haven't tried these yet, I'll let Mr. Ripples have the honor when he gets home from work.
I also made some Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. I revised this recipe from sparkpeople. I tried to lighten them up a bit using egg whites and substituting half the butter with applesauce. They are still good, but the weight watchers points are still too high to be a good treat for me. The girls and hubby'll have to eat these themselves.
And finally, I made these blueberry muffins. I used oats for half of the flour and substituted applesauce for the oil. These came out pretty good and were only 3 WW Points Plus.
Now I'm exhausted. Little Ripples and Baby Ripples helped me mix up the cookies and the muffins. I had to clean the kitchen twice, sweep, vacuum and mop the floor.
