Steak and Chicken Kabobs

The night that I signed up for Weight Watchers I was hanging out at a friend’s house. She was making steak and chicken kabobs for dinner and man they were one of the best meals I had had in a while. She always cooks good food though. And she definitely eats healthier than I do. So it was no surprise that when I entered the recipe in the Weight Watchers app the point value was low.

You know what that means? I stole her dish and made it for myself! lol

That’s what I’m doing with this Sausage and Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash.

Belated Birthday Dinner

My brother Cody and his boyfriend Anthony joined us as well as…
