We’ve been able to spend just enough time outside for us to get a taste of spring, only to be dumped on with 5 inches of snow the next day. 

It’s so strange how it can be spring one minute and feel like you’ve been teleported back to Winter within 24 hours. 

My food cravings change with the weather too. 

When it’s warm and sunny, I’m craving fresh fruits and vegetables. 

When it turns back to winter, I’m immediately craving a hot meal. 

Weight Watchers Chicken Broccoli Bake

My son was sick Easter weekend, and we were stuck inside for most of the weekend. 

We did get to visit family on Easter Sunday, but we had to miss a bunch of fun family activities we had planned leading up to it. 

So, what do I do when I’m stuck inside with a sick toddler on a beautiful day?

I make a new recipe with ingredients I have on hand. 

(I like to take full advantage of the light from my sun porch on these days for food pictures).

The thing about not being able to leave the house is having to cook with what you have on hand. 

I always try to keep staples in my home for this very reason. 

Where we live, you never know when you’re going to have to stay home, due to weather or other, so that way we’re always prepared. 

This WW Chicken Broccoli Bake is so very simple to make but tastes delicious. 

It’s a quick meal to put together and you can have it ready for the table within one hour. 

First you start off by gathering all of your ingredients.

I used unsweetened plain almond milk in this WW Chicken Broccoli Bake because it brought the points down. 

I started cooking with almond milk while I was following the Arbonne 30 Days to Healthy Living Program. 

Read my results here.

I don’t notice a difference in the taste of the recipes and it’s better for you, with almost twice the calcium of milk and less cholesterol. 

I get the shredded fat free mozzarella at Walmart, in case you have trouble finding it. 

I love this recipe because it’s low in points, and it has potatoes in it!

Who doesn’t love some potatoes!

After you’ve gathered your ingredients, you want to cook the broccoli until it turns nice a green and has a bit of bite to it. 

What I do is chop and wash the broccoli, then place it in a pot of water. 

I bring it to a boil, let it boil for about a minute, then turn the heat off, place a lid on top and let it steam/continue to cook for about 2-3 minutes. 

You then want to drain it and set it aside to add later.

Next, you want to melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a sauce pan on medium heat. 

I like using light butter with Canola oil because it’s less points but still tastes like butter to me. 

After the butter has melted, you add the flour and the salt. 

Mix together until it’s incorporated well. 

You then add in the milk, stirring on medium high heat until it turns bubbly. 

When it starts to bubble, add the reduced fat cheddar and stir until its all melted into the mixture. 

Next, you stir in the hash brown potatoes. 

Mix the ingredients until blended well and then heat it through. 

I turn the heat up to high and just keep an eye on it until it’s all warmed through. 

Place half of the mixture in a 9×9 brownie pan, coated with non-stick spray.

Spread it evenly around, and then add the broccoli to the top. 

Add the chicken on top of the broccoli, then top with the rest of the mixture. 

Top mixture with mozzarella cheese. 

In a small bowl, mix the bread crumbs with 1/2 tablespoon butter and sprinkle over the top. 

It takes about 30-40 minutes for this Chicken Broccoli Bake to cook. 

Cut it into 6 servings and enjoy!

Do you boil the chicken breasts first? How long?

true color personality

Thursday 28th of September 2023

Introduced by Don Lowry in 1978, the True Colors test measures four basic learning styles: independent thinkers, pragmatic planners, action-oriented, and people-oriented. Each learning style represents a color; each person can uniquely combine all four colors. The results of this assessment can be used to help reduce conflict between people by understanding each other’s characteristics. This quick test can be done online to give you a rough idea of ​​your colors.

The True Colors Test assumes that human temperament is divided into four categories, each with strengths and weaknesses. After being out of fashion for a while, this test has recently regained its popularity online. In this test, by answering 28 questions, you will be placed in blue, gold, orange, and green colors.

Designed by Herman Rorschach in 1960, the inkblot test is perhaps one of the most unique and “quirky” personality tests available. Inkblot testing is usually done in person; an inkblot test is an assessment in which the examiner presents the participant with an inkblot, and the participant describes to the examiner what they see.

This test measures a person’s mental state and can be used for children from 5 to adults. Then, a psychologist analyzes and interprets the participant’s perception of the inkblot using sophisticated algorithms. This says a lot about the character of the contestants.

Traditionally, this test is done in person with a psychological examiner, but you can also take the shortened test online.

Most of us have probably signed up for a video or music streaming platform. But have you ever felt that there should be a service that combines all the benefits of these platforms in one venue at one price? Personality tests sometimes feel the same way. We take a personality test that tells us a thing or two about us, but we might be missing a key element. So we take another personality test to analyze the individual or the group.

Individual interests Multiple personality tests give people a more comprehensive assessment and understanding of how they work, think, and perform. Each test has its strengths in personality assessment; Therefore, access to this type of data brings greater self-awareness to humans and allows you to maximize your competencies and strengths.

group interests This is also true for team and group activities, how team members can work together to achieve goals by observing and examining each other’s personalities and characteristics. With access to multiple tests, everyone learns each team member’s personality and who can perform better and be more creative at what time.

Would skim milk work the same as the almond milk?

Hi Erin, Skim milk has a different nutritional count than almond milk, so the points could change, yes. Thanks for stopping by! Carissa

Made this for dinner tonight. After reading the other comments, I used 2 cups of broccoli florets and probably just under 3 cups of cut up chicken. It was maybe just a little dry but really delicious. I would make ot the same the next time. My husband said it was excellent!
