Aimee's Meatloaf Muffins

This week I revisited one of my favorite recipes! These "muffins" are great tasting and a good portion size. I usually serve these with steamed veggies. They are also good with mashed cauliflower (prepare frozen cauliflower, then mash with laughing cow cheese).

New Snack: Jicama

My new favorite snack: Jicama! Specifically, I am eating Jicama with freshly squeezed lemon juice, salt, and chili powder.

One 1/2 cup serving has only 23 calories and 3 grams of fiber.

And if my heart desires, a whole jicama is 0-points. Can't beat that!

Pickled Green Beans

Surprisingly, green beans can taste just like pickles!

We now have four 12-ounce jars of pickled green beans sitting in our fridge. My first attempt at canning went well. The recipe was easy to follow and went fairly quickly. (I adjusted the salt to 3/4 a teaspoon per 12-ounce jar.)

Thanks for sharing the recipe Kari!
