What's Cooking Wednesday


Well, feels as though it has been forever and a day since I last posted.
Instead of a bunch of jibber jabber, I thought that I would just jump right back in to my regularly scheduled posting (haha.) So, here for your enjoyment, is my
What's cooking Wednesday.
Weight Watchers points friendly french onion soup
ingredients:
1 teaspoon unsalted stick margarine
1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups low-sodium beef broth
2 ounces French bread, cut into two slices and toasted
1/3 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
Directions:
1. Preheat the broiler. In a medium saucepan, melt the margarine. Add the onion and cook, stirring as needed, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the broth; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until the onion is very tender, about 3 minutes.
2. Place one slice of the toast in each of two flameproof soup bowls; pour the soup over the toast. Sprinkle each with the cheese and broil until the cheese is melted and lightly browned, about 1 minute. Serve at once.

Are you still doing Weight Watchers? Linda and I were thinking of joining and really start losing some weight. I still have weight to lose from Megan.

Sorry I didn't respond sooner! I didn't realize that I had any comments. I'm not doing Weight Watchers at the moment, although I try to used at least points friendly recipes. That way, I at least know that I'm not eating something that is REALLY bad. I would love to re-join Weight Watchers. When might you be going? It'd be great to know someone else that is doing it, for support. By the way, don't feel bad about having weight to lose from Megan-- I still have weight to lose from Nicholas! LOL! (It's not really funny.)
