Weigh in Wednesday

Well it's officially summer, and it's starting to get HOT. This time of year I love to find cool, light, and refreshing recipes to try. Especially dessert recipes. One of my new favorites is this

2 kiwis
2 apples
8oz raspberries
1 lb strawberries
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp brown sugar
2 tbsp fruit preserves
juice from 1/2 a lime

Dice up all your fruit. The smaller the pieces the easier they will be to scoop. In a big bowl mix together the diced fruit, sugar, brown sugar, preserves (any kind will work, I used blackberry) and the lime juice. Cover and chill in the fridge for at least half hour.

a great chip to dip are these

10 10 inch flour tortillas
1 cup cinnamon sugar
melted butter

Brush the tortillas with the melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. I prefer to have a light sprinkle because the salsa itself is quite sweet, but you can be heavy with the cinnamon sugar if you like. Cut the tortilla into wedges or strips. Arrange them on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 5-10 minutes until they're crispy.

Weigh in Wednesday results -0 pounds -9.2 pounds total.
I actually lost a few pounds last week before Sunday, but Sunday having gone to a party and gone a little food crazy I gained a few of those pounds back. As of this morning those pounds have all gone away so I'm back where I was last week.
