OOPS, almost forgot the recipe of the month!!!!! HOLY MOLY, these are knock your socks off DELISH and they are out of this world!!!!!! I have given this recipe out before but since I have over 100 more newbies getting my emails, thought I would share again and this will remind you "oldies" that its time to get out the Enchilada baking dish!!!

Ginger’s Chicken Enchiladas
1 medium chicken-cooked and de-boned
1 med onion chopped
2 lb. box Velvetta Mexican cheese-melted
1 pt. whipping cream
½ stick Parkay margarine
1 can Rotel tomatoes-chopped
1- 12 count pkg flour tortillas

Saute onions in margarine. Melt cheese and whipping cream. Stir until well blended. Add Rotel.
Dice chicken and place in flour tortillas and roll up. Place in baking dish. Pour sauce over tortillas and cover with foil. Bake at 325 degrees until hot and bubbly.

TIP of the month: HMMMM......let's see....... I don't really have a tip but I have some favorite websites to pass along..... for all you weight watcher pals out there: She just put a new cookbook out last month and I LOVE HER!!!! The recipes are wonderful, you would never know the recipes are actually good for you and low in points - check her out!!

Another Fav for my weight watcher pals: - she has TONS of restaurants listed with ALL their points on the menu. Did you know that at Moe's (one of my fav places-hi GARY-Moe's owner on providence road) has weight watcher friendly meals. The homewrecker may wreck your hips but there are lots of other choices that fall within my points budget!!! So check out DWLZ, Dotti's the best!!!!

Don't forget to check out my website~ I have a shout box on there-give me a shout sometime!!!!
Oh, just one more little thing - A BIG HUGE HUG to my daughter Hollie - Yer the BEST!!! What a HUGE HUGE honor to be Top Gull at her school!!!!

This is the display at her school, she was TOTALLY surprised and I had to choose all her favorite things for the display case. I think I did ok!!
