Crab Rangoons... Weight Watchers Style

So. I'm not going to lie. I am really frustrated. In the last 4 weeks, I have only lost about 2 pounds. Weigh-ins have begun to make me feel emotional... and I am an emotional eater. In fact, immediately after I weighed in at my meeting today, I texted Andy and said "lets get Chinese"... but I gave up fast food for Lent (and yes, Chinese is fast food) and I am determined to have a big loss next Monday at the scale. BUT... then I had it in my head.I needed Chinese food. desperately. I have no idea what I will do if I ever get pregnant, I already have consuming cravings that must be satisfied pretty much immediately.

The thing I always want most is crab rangoons. They are my favorite... however... from the Chinese restaurant they are 5pp for two! This recipe is 6pp for 4! YAY!

Here is what you need!
  • Won Ton Wrappers (16 pieces)
  • Low-fat Cream Cheese (8 oz)
  • Imitation Crab (or the real stuff if you are rich) (4 oz)
  • Green Onions (1/4 cup)
  • Garlic Powder (1/2 tsp)

Ok. This is pretty easy to do...  Chop up the green onions, flake up the crab.... and throw everything in a bowl and mix it together to make the filling. Not including the wrappers of course! I used an electric mixer which also flaked up the crab a bit more.
 Once you have your "guts" all mixed up, spoon approximately 1 teaspoon of the mixture on to the middle of a wonton wrapper.
Moisten the edges of the wrapper with a little bit of water and close 'er on up!
Place your finished rangoons on a cookie sheet that is sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

Ok. Pop them in the oven at 425 degrees for about 7 minutes, or until lightly brown!

Enjoy 4 of these babies for only 6 pp (3 pp for 2!)... well worth it to me! ENJOY!

yum. :)

don't get frustrated with the number on the scale. it's not only about the scale number. it's about your health... how you feel... are your clothes fitting differently?

the number on the scale is sometimes a beyotch, and it's not the only thing that matters. :D
