Right before Thanksgiving (I think, I have a really bad memory), I attempted to make WW Mac 'n Cheese. This is where the 1st failure to read directions got in the way. I started with all the ingredients (or at least I thought).
I made the pasta, as directed. Boiling pasta is pretty easy, right? At least I didn't mess that up.
All was going well, until I started to add the cheese and it was all in one big clump of cheese. I went back to the recipe and then say that one of the cheese had to be american cheese in order for them to melt properly. Ooops! When I was in the grocery store I decided not to get the american cheese because I couldn't find any that was shredded (note, it doesn't exists). Soon to find out, I wasted a batch of mac n' cheese because I can't read fine print directions. Lesson learned....read all the directions carefully!
After I went back and added the american cheese, it was quite delicious. I recommend it!
That was last weeks cooking adventures...onto this week!
After the fiasco of missing ingredients, I decided to bring my WW cookbook with me to avoid anymore disasters. Disaster was avoided, but mistakes were not!
I decided to make Pumpkin Soup this week. I had all of the spices, so it wasn't too expensive. Salt, ground cinnamon, white pepper, nutmeg and ginger.
Here was the rest that I needed: pumpkin, chicken broth, evaporated FF milk and I used butternut squash (not shown), but it was really supposed to be turnips (which was my mistake...but I didn't see turnips in the frozen isle anyway).
It was pretty easy....you had to head up the butternut squash on the stove. I ended up getting it all over my kitchen because it apparently flings really easy! I don't recommend that lol
Then I pretty much added all the other ingredients except the milk (the broth and pumpkin was already mixed in at this point).
I slowly added in the milk and heated it up!
Pretty easy! But! I have to say...it wasn't to my liking in the taste department.
If you are someone who doesn't like to break the rules...stop reading now!
I added a few spoons full of sugar to sweeten it up a bit. I thought it was a little bitter without it and I don't think I could have eaten that for 4 days.
Onto baking cookies! That aren't WW...you just can't make good cookies without butter! lol
