Not so much zippity....

This is all the zippity I got :-)!!!! One thing came up then another and another and that was it for sewing. But I am very, very happy to report that my WW meeting was quite successful and I lost
5.2 lbs!!!!!!!!! I just about fainted and almost kissed the weigher lady.I am a day late for the looser Monday report, but here's my favorite desert snack.
Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins
Makes 12 muffins
15 oz. can of regular pumpkin (solid not the filling)
1 box of chocolate cake mix (reduced fat if you can find it)
Mix pumpkin and box of mix. That's it. No other ingredients. Put the mixture in a muffin pan
sprayed with Pam and bake 350 for about 30 minutes. 12 BIG chocolaty glorious muffins
that are 3 points each. WARNING: After you eat one lock the rest up!!!! Great day everyone.

Way to go!! Good for you, keep it up!! Oh, I need to make that recipe.

Linda said...

Oh, this is not good. That sounds like something I won't stop eating. Hey, you know what someone needs to invent? A refrigerator/container with a lock like a bank's. It won't open until a certain time. Then you can make these great things and put them in the box and know that you can't get at it until 6 hours later or something. Someone should invent that. :) Thanks so much for the recipe. Linda
