I was in charge of hosting Bunco this weekend which means you all get a lot of recipes. Hope you enjoy. The Skinny Pimento Cheese was BEYOND easy to make and great, my mom has already called to ask when I am putting the spin & artichoke recipe up so she can have it. T was eating the pizza pockets cold on the way home she liked them so much, but my absolute favorite were the wraps. They had a great spicy flavor and were really tasty. I might make them for myself for dinner sometime. Yummy.

2 cups reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
4 ounces Greek, Non-Fat, Plain Yogurt
4 tablespoons low fat Hellman's mayo
4 ounces pimentos

pita chips, crackers, or bread to serve on
Entire Dish = 814 calories & 53 grams of fat
Split into 8 decent sized servings = 102 calories & 7 grams of fat
3 cans Buttermilk Biscuits (10 biscuits per can)

*1 jar pizza sauce/Marinara to serve with
Cut the block of cheese into 30 squares.

Gather up the edges of the biscuit.
Line the rolls up in a greased 9x13 in. pan.

Spicy Chicken Wraps-
16 oz precooked chicken breast pieces
2 cans Ro-tel diced tomatoes, drained (I used one normal & one spicy - gave it the perfect kick)
8 oz reduced fat cream cheese, softened
1 cup 2% Mexican blend cheese
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp garlic salt
6 scallions, white and green parts, chopped
6-8 large flour tortillas (I used garlic & sundried tomato wraps for fun)
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Lay out tortillas and divide mixture evenly in the center of each.
Spread into a thin layer leaving the edges clean.
Roll each tortilla tightly.
Spear with toothpick, so they don't unroll, then cut each tortilla into 4 slices.
Serve with salsa and guacamole. One whole wrap = 387 calories & 14 grams of fat*I used the big Toufanya wraps which are 160 calories each. Next time I'll use my 89 calorie La Banderita tortilla I love and cut these bad boys down to 316 calories. Split into 4 servings = 97 calories & 4 grams of fat
Plus I couldn't go without dessert. The Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries were the first thing to disappear. Find their recipe here. I made double the stuffing for them, bought some take and bake sugar cookies, and a ton of fruit and made an adorable make your own fruit pizza bar. Too fun!
Runner's World Summer Run Streak-
Day 29 = 2.5 miles (late run after work & night class)
Total Miles Run =116.5
My goal is a pound a week for 13 weeks that way I lose my 13.1.
I was only down 0.3 pounds today after week one.
Probably because I had some serious issues last week.
Back on track though and did great today.
