Amazing Soups - Weight Watchers Recipe Reviews

Image from Weight Watchers
This week is the Hubby's Birthday and there WILL be over indulgence. So in the run up to his special day, and in the aftermath, we are closely watching our food!

We have been trying out some of the Zero Point Soups I have discovered on the Weight Watchers website.

Curried Butternut Squash Soup

Rating: 4 stars

We liked this one. It smelled great and tasted good too. It takes a while to make though because I find butternut difficult to handle when it comes to the peeling and dicing, and then there is the time it takes to bake the flesh... but it's totally worth it. One to plan ahead for though.

Pumpkin, Ginger & Apple Soup

Rating: 3.5 stars

It's probably because I couldn't get hold of a pumpkin (this close to Halloween? I'm stunned! They'll be every where next week I bet) and used "assorted squash" from Asda instead, but this - as nice as it is - isn't our favourite. I've made it twice though and enjoyed it. I can't wait to try it with ACTUAL pumpkin.

Italian Inspired Vegetable Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars

I was bound to love this one, it's very close to the zero point soup we make ourselves anyway. Always good to try a variation though. This one scores high for being a much quicker soup to prepare so it's ideal for after school/work.

Over the next few days I will be experimenting with advice from this article: How To Make: Easy Vegetable Soup

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
