Leftover Aloo Mutter Gobi and Brandie makes lifetime!

Anyone who has not tried Aloo Mutter Gobi is missing out. This dish gets better everyday. I turned the leftovers into a yummy pita sandwich. We heated up some 9 grain pitas, split them, and stuffed them with leftover Aloo. Oh my goodness is it good. I have eaten this for 3 days and can't get enough. Using up what was in the fridge before shopping this weekend gave us steamed cabbage, green beans with toasted almonds, and yellow squash. I can't tell you what a comfort meal this is!



I know many of you don't know that we are a Weight Watcher family. DH, DD, myself, and my mother are all on the program. DH is quiet about his weight loss (he wants to surprise everyone), but my mom has lost 28 lbs, I have lost 58 lbs, and our daughter, Brandie, made lifetime this past Thursday. We are so proud of her. She lost 32 lbs and looks great. We took pictures at her final weigh in, but they are so dark you can't see her. We had her quickly pose for this shot before the leader started talking. She lost 3.6 lbs this week and she was doing the happy dance in front of everyone. She said, "Mom, was I red? I was smiling so much, but couldn't stop. My smile was uncontrollable." We were happy, smiling parents too! We are so happy that she is striving to live a healthy life while she is still young. Congratulations to our baby girl!!

Congratulations to Brandie! That is great and she looks wonderful! And congratulations to you too! A 58lb weight loss is amazing! That is nice that you all go together and give each other support! And I think I will have to try the Aloo Mutter Gobi soon…you have convinced me that it’s not to be missed!

Congrats to everyone on their losses! I have been following WW for a little over a year, and while my loss has been stalled for quite some time now, I still consider myself a success. I lost 20 lbs, and I have another 15 or so to go. Can't wait till I'm in your daughter's shoes!

Thanks everyone! I am so proud of my Momma too... :) She's doing so awesome! A lot of my (our) success comes from her delicious cooking and experimenting! I love her cooking, there hasn't really been too much of her Vegan forays that I haven't enjoyed ... THANKS MOM!! :)
