It is really super good!
For those that do WW, I figured it put to 6-7pts for 1 cup serving, using fat free miracle whip, and pumpkin seeds instead of almonds.


Oooh pumpkin seeds are yummy... Yes, this is one of our faves in the summer...

Does that make...

The pain was intense and I could barely put pressure on it to walk and I nearly had to call my DH to come and...
