Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

No, No, not this kind of test, sillies! Surely some of you are old enough to remember this type of test screen that came on around 2 a.m, in the ol' days, right?
A n y w a y ~~~I did some serious grocery shopping, and lots of research online for tasty food that was lower in calories, and not too high in WW points. Sigh, Spring is coming, and the urge to purge some of this lard around my waist and butt has hit again. Once the Girl Scout cookies came into the house a couple of weeks ago, the war was lost....so onward, and upward, I try again. Hence, the shopping, now back to the story!
I don't normally make a habit of buying "frozen foods" as food is lower in salt and fat when cooked by my lily whites. (Granted, maybe not as tasty as the selections found in the freezer section at Wally world).
I get the Hungry Girl newsletters and they kept talking about the Healthy Choice Asian meals that are fairly new. They were on sale today, 2/$5.00, me being the cheap wench that I am, I bought one. (What if I didn't like it, what would I do with the other one)?
IT WAS GREAT! Healthy Choice, cafe selections, in a steamer bowl, Asian group. I came home with the Sweet Sesame Chicken, oh my goodness.
This particular meal was 7 points, but worth it. Veggies were crunchy, seasonings nice, rice, nice white meat chicken chunks. Needless to say, I'm going to try the other Asian chicken selections. We love Chinese, and I think Jim will like these too.
Something else that has been a hit with my choco-freak hubby, and I like too, are the Smart Ones, Weight Watcher desserts, in the red and white box. We like the strawberry shortcake, the chocolate chip cookie dough, and the peanut butter cup desserts. These aren't for every night, these are for when you gotta have a little sumthin' sumthin', or you will eat the entire content of the refrigerator.
These will save you from self destruction! Today's price was $1.88 for a box of two. That's one each for you and your dear spouse. If you aren't speaking to said spouse, that means two for you, and at a cost of only 4 points.
It's all about the points !! Okay, it's nice to share, I kinda sorta remember Mom saying something about that during childhood....
