Weight Watcher Wednesday ~ Sausage & Cheese Egg Muffin


This Egg Muffin is so quick, easy and packed with protein. It literally just takes a few minutes to whip up and cook. This recipe is for one muffin....just multiply for the amount needed! Here it goes...I hope you enjoy it!!
Sausage and Cheese Egg Muffins

1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon onions, green peppers, red peppers etc...whatever veggie you like
1 tablespoon 2 % cheddar cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons cooked Italian sausage crumbles
----------------
Beat together until frothy. Pour into a greased microwave safe small dish like a ramekin. Cook for 1:30 seconds...check egg....if it is still wet and uncooked just pop it back into the microwave until cooked. Be careful not to cook it too long! Invert onto a plate. I added salsa to mine. EAT!!!
Hope your week is going well. Make sure to stop back Friday and join in on photo Friday!!

My picture for today is not a current picture. If

of nice green grass. I am sharing this picture

am waiting for. New calves and green grass!

Weight Watcher Wednesday ~ Light Fetticcine Alfredo

First off, I must tell you before I forget..........I thought that I had fettuccine in my pantry.....I was wrong. So, I had to use spaghetti. I think you will still get the picture!! :)

We are digging ourselves out after a spring blizzard here yesterday. We only got 10 inches of snow....much better than the predicted 16 inches!!

Light Fetticcine Alfredo

12 ounces uncooked fetticcine or other pasta ;)
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons butter
4 garlic cloves, pressed
3 cups fat-free half and half
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Cook the pasta according to directions. Meanwhile melt the butter and then add the flour. Cook on medium stiring constantly. Cook for several minutes to give the flour a more browned nutty taste. Add garlic. Gradually add the 1/2 and 1/2 . Bring to boil. Cook and stir for 1 - 2 minutes or until thickened. Add parmesan, salt and pepper flakes. Drain pasta. Toss the sauce with the pasta and serve!

I like to add a little more pepper flakes and grind some pepper on my serving! Enjoy!!

Come back Friday for Farm Photo Friday. I would love for you all to get involved with sharing pictures taken on your farm, ranch, in your garden or just out in the country. Stop back Friday to get all the details or scroll back and see my last Friday submissions!! Sorry I didn't get to it last Friday..........I just didn't have the time that day.

Don't forget to leave me a message.........you know how I love to hear from you all!!

This side dish is so easy to throw together. You cook it in your slow cooker so it saves time and room in the oven!!

4 ounces reduced fat Velveeta Cheese - cubed
1/2 cup 2% cheddar cheese - shredded
1 -10-1/4 ounces reduced fat cream of chicken soup

Put the veggies in your slow cooker. In a 2 cup glass measuring cup combine your soup, milk and cheese. Melt on medium in the microwave. When melted give it a good stir and then pour it over your veggies. Add salt and pepper. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours. Stir before serving.
Give it try.......I hope you love it!!
