I know that the weather is kind of going crazy around the country right now. It’s hot where it should be cooler and it’s cold where it should be warming up. The calendar, however, is telling me that it is time to start having picnics and potlucks.
I found this recipe several years ago on Dottie’s Weight Loss Zone. That site is a great resource for those who follow Weight Watchers, and it is especially chock full of all kinds of recipes.
This recipe is a favorite at our house. It’s quick, easy, and doesn’t require any actual cooking. That’s always a plus in my book, LOL!
