Weekend Eats

Happy Saturday!

Our Fabulous Fall Challenge is bumping along. Can’t even believe we are in our second month! Don’t forget that on October 6th we will re-do our BMI, re-take measurements and for some of set new goals as some Challengers have already met their first goal!! If you haven’t signed up there’s still time! The Challenge goes until November 31st and you can join by filling out the form on the right side bar. Get Healthy BEFORE the holidays!!

So if you Follow me on Twitter and read my last post you know that I had a nice little girls night in last night! I also posted a few of my go to girlie snacks including my FAVE dessert ever-Four Layer Delight! By popular demand I have a picture for you and I will re-post the recipe! This is guaranteed to be a hit!

Girl Gone Healthy Four Layer Delight:
CRUST:
1 c. wheat flour
1 stick butter, melted ( I use the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter sticks for baking)
1/2-1 c. chopped pecans
 
FILLING:
1 lg. container Fat Free or Sugar Free Cool Whip
1 c. instant fat free vanilla pudding powder (you’ll need 2 boxes to measure out 1 cup)
1 (8 oz.) pkg. fat free cream cheese
1 (3 oz.) pkg. instant fat free chocolate pudding
1 (3 oz.) pkg. instant fat free French vanilla pudding

 Mix ingredients for crust together and spread into a 9 1/2 x 13 inch pan. Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool. -Make sure to cool!!

In a bowl, mix 1 cup Cool Whip, 1 cup vanilla pudding powder and cream cheese; spread over cool crust. Mix chocolate and French Vanilla pudding mixes in separate bowls according to package directions allow puddings to set for a few minutes. Carefully spread the chocolate pudding over the cream cheese layer, next carefully spread the French vanilla pudding over the top of the chocolate trying not to swirl them together. Lastly, top everything off with remaining Cool Whip. (GGH Note- when making your puddings use Skim Milk. Also making this the night before and allowing to sit in fridge over night makes it taste 10 times better!)

As for other food news….how about a delish Feta Chicken Wrap and Enchiladas Verde!!!

GGH Feta Chicken Veggie Wrap:

This is a super duper quick and easy week night meal or weekend lunch! I just cubed up some left over chicken breast, sauteed up a red pepper-yellow pepper-green pepper and a 1/2 of a small white onion, topped with Feta and wrapped it all up in a La Tortilla Factory Whole Wheat wrap! YUM-O

Enchiladas Verde (Enchiladas with Green sauce):

3 small skinless chicken breasts, diced and cooked

1 small can green chiles chopped-drain can

1 small can Green Enchilada sauce

1 package mild taco seasoning

Fat Free Monterrey Jack cheese

La Tortilla Factory Whole Wheat wraps

Black beans for side dish

Combine cooked chicken, green chiles, and taco seasoning in skillet-allow to warm through and thicken. Lay tortilla on flat surface, add chicken mixture, followed by sprinkle of cheese and roll up-place in casserole dish coated with cooking spray. Continue until all chicken is used, drizzle Green Enchilada sauce over the top of enchiladas and place in pre heated 350 oven for 15 to 20 minutes allowing enchiladas to become golden. Plate up with some pureed black beans!

And for a Fall Treat….Baked Apples!

Cut off the tops of 6 apples and use a melon baller to hollow out the middles. In a mixing bowl combine 1/3 cup Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil, 2 tsp each Cinnamon and Ground Ginger, and 1/4 cup light brown sugar-stir well allowing brown sugar to dissolve. Fill apples with a little of the mixture and bake in pre heated 375 oven for about 30 to 45 minutes. Apples are done when soft and inside filling has become glaze like.

Hoping these recipes will make their way in to your kitchen!!! Have a great weekend!
