Personal Notes:
Discovered this Weight Watcher recipe in one of their cookbooks years ago when my kids were still in middle school and the whole family liked it....Rock and I could stay on our diet ( that day ) and the kids were happy with it too.
I continued to make it even when not actively dieting.
