New Poshmark Listing!

Lane Bryant Maroon Wrap Blouse Size 18/20

I always loved this blouse! I tried to photograph it to show how it wraps. You feed the long tie through the hole in the opposite side of the blouse, then bring it around the back and then tie on the side. Made by Lane Bryant, it is a beautiful burgundy, gold and purple stripe. Cute pinched sleeve button closures. 55% cotton, 30% nylon, 11% rayon and 4% spandex.  See more pics in my Poshmark closet.

Weight Watchers Recipe Revamp!

Converting Old Weight Watchers Recipe Points to the New Freestyle Points

Today's recipe conversion is a recipe from the Weight Watchers What To Eat Now cookbook.  The old recipe was six servings at 6 points per serving.  With the new Freestyle Points, it is now only 1 point per serving!  What a difference!!

Weight Watchers Chicken, Black Bean and Corn Chili 

Watch my YouTube video below to see how easy it is to make.

  • 1Tbspchili powder
    1 Points
  • 2tspground cumin
    0 Points
  • 15 12ozcanned black beans, rinsed and drained
    0 Points
  • 14 12ozKroger Tomatoes, Diced, with Green Chilies, Original
    0 Points
  • 8ozcanned tomato sauce
    0 Points
  • 34cup(s)cooked frozen yellow corn
    0 Points
  • 12cup(s)reduced sodium canned chicken broth
    0 Points


  • Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring often, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  • Add onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring often, until vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, chili powder, and cumin and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 30 seconds.
  • Stir in black beans, tomatoes, tomato sauce, corn, and chicken broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, until chili is slightly thickened, about 20 minutes. Ladle into 6 bowls, sprinkle with cilantro and scallions if desired.

After making this a couple of times, I decided to shred the chicken after baking it in the oven.  I love this change, it makes the chicken be in almost every bite.  As you can see in the video, I made it more of a soup by adding all of the chicken broth.  It doesn't change the points value in the least!  I didn't have any cilantro or scallions, but they certainly would make this flavorful dish burst with even more flavor.

My favorite part is that this whole pot of goodness is just 6 Freestyle points!  So enjoy a bowl whenever you want, it is sure to bring you comfort when you are struggling with staying within your points range.  I'm glad to have a backup in the freezer!
