You know the old adage: 

The way to a man’s heart is 
through his stomach. 

Thankfully for me, the way to Brian’s heart wasn’t through food but a solid friendship and a goofy sense of humor. 

Still, a girl needs to cook, even the empty-nester type, like myself. As you may know from past posts, I’ve been doing Weight Watchers since April. I’m learning that healthier food doesn’t have to look or taste all that different. Take this classic Fall dessert, Apple Crisp, for instance:  

Ingredients:

  • 5 medium fresh peeled apple slice(s)
      {I used Honeycrisp}

  • 3 tsp sugar
      

  • 2 Tbsp packed brown sugar
      

  • 2 Tbsp regular butter
      

  • 3/4 cup(s) uncooked oatmeal
      

  • 1/4 cup(s) all-purpose flour
      

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
      

  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
      

Instructions:

  • Arrange sliced, peeled apples in 11×7 baking dish sprayed with
    cooking spray. Combine all other ingredients together to form crumbs,
    scatter evenly over the top. Bake at 350 for 30 min. DELICIOUS! 

Serves 6, at 5 points+ per plentiful serving. Top with Fat Free Whipped Topping for 0 points. Yes, life is good.
