The snow in Central Oregon is up to my eyeballs.  Like most writers, I am prone to exaggeration. But this is not that.  We had 51 inches of snow in a five-day period and are expecting another 3 inches this afternoon. I stand 65 inches tall so the snow is literally up to my eyeballs.

But there was a catch.

How do I make something delicious that everyone will love without blowing all of my Weight Watchers Freestyle points for the day? It also needed to be easy, quick, and not too many crazy ingredients that I couldn’t find at my local supermarket.
