In response to your comment on my page... no I haven't read any of Peter's books. I don't do a lot of reading... hence why I like watching clean sweep :) :)

I enjoy reading your blog... thanks for visiting.

sorry I'm late commenting.
I've never done that with crescent rolls. Although my usual supermarket doesn't stock them, I'd have to pop to a different one, I might try that.

Hi, yes I do Weight Watchers. I go into weigh once a month but I do follow their point system. I joined in 1989 and worked for them for a number of years. It is the best plan for losing weight. Right now I am paying a fee when I go but soon that will be over, "again"!!
I enjoyed my visit here.

I have to try those chicken baseballs! Sounds like a fun week. We only have the Cheesy au gratin potatoes infrequently. I developed the recipe for my son's birthday at his request, but definitely too rich for everyday. Thanks for stopping by.
