yes, another floral frenzy....

Hi all,
It has been getting busy with wedding stuff, tonight Ashley has her first fitting, and I am going with her...she is going to make dinner, since I have to work late. That will be nice *smile* I love when someone else makes dinner!

Here is one of the Weight Watcher recipes I promised (I will post the other one tomorrow): They are super easy and yummy! Which means they will be repeated in our house;D

Orange Beef (3 points)

3 scallions, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1 T orange zest3/4 lb boneless sirloin steak, trimmed and cut into thin strips
1 10-oz bag fresh sugar snap peas and baby carrots
2 T reduced sodium soy sauce
2 T orange juice
1 tsp cornstarch
1 T cold water

spray large wok or skillet with cooking spray, and set to high; add scallions, garlic, ginger and orange zest; stir fry until softened.
add beef and stir fry until browned (about 3 min); add the snap peas and carrots continue stir frying until crisp tender. stir in orange juice, bring to a simmer.
meanwhile, mix the cornstarch and water in a small bowl until smooth. add to wok and cook stirring constantly until the sauce is thickened. serve with rice (add 3 points for 1 serving).
4 1 cup servings (I doubled the recipe for our family).

Now onto the card...
Yup...another floral frenzy (with the cuttlebug flower die no less!). I really like this color combo, really soft and pretty. I am posting Ashley's wedding invitations tomorrow...since my mom finally got hers (gotta love that Connecticut mail service!)
Have a fantastic day!
