The Retro WW Guest Post Experiment - Phase 1

It's only appropriate that the very first guest post submission for this crazy challenge should come from the #1 lady in my life. She is a constant inspiration for this blog and was my very first follower. Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to present to you Ms. Barby and her "Cottage Noodles"...

As Mimi's mom and an "old" member of the original 1972 WW program, I was delighted to be a a part of the Retro WW Experiment. I chose the recipe Cottage Noodles. (Pg. 67 in the 1972 WW Cookbook) Mimi and I love cottage cheese, eggs, and pasta in general. These 3 items were a staple in my avocado colored "fridge". When I was on the 1972 program, I counted the minutes when I could eat my lunch, which was the legal portion of cottage cheese with the legal portion of cooked macaroni. I mixed the 2 together and ate it COLD. This was my happy lunch. It was so much better then scoffing my tuna from the can. I probably ate it everyday. Boy!!! Have things changed. Thank goodness! So try the recipe, it tasted good - and Happy Weight Watcher"ing" ~Mimi's Mom

PS: I wouldn't mind making another guest appearance Retro WW style, if Mimi invites me again. It was alot of fun!!!!

Cottage Noodles
2/3 Cup Cottage Cheese
3 tbsp skim milk
1/4 tsp lemon juice
1 cup cooked egg noodles
1/4 cup diced pimento
2 hard cooked eggs, sliced
salt & pepper
1/4 tsp caraway seeds
1/4 tsp Worcestershire

Combine first 3 ingredients in blender and whiz smooth. Layer remaining ingredients in small baking dish and cover with blended mixture. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes until bubbly hot! Makes 2 luncheon servings. Enjoy!

This could be pretty good. Or it could be a stomach turner. I'm just so unsure. 'Casue if it was good it would so be something I'd try. (I eat cooked noodles mixed with warm cottage cheese, salt, and pepper as a comfort food.)

Great post Mimi's Mom!!! I'm excited to make my 1972 recipe you've assigned me! It'll be closer to the end of the week, my husband is having some dental work tomorrow that will put him out of solid food commission for a day or two. Once I'm back cooking for two, we're in!!!

Hi there Mimi and Mimi's Mom! I have just finished reading through your blog and I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Never again shall I complain about the tyranny of having to count points (well, I will, but I'll try to do it less) and instead be grateful that I don't live in 1972 and no one is going to make me eat anything encased in gelatine.

Bless you, and keep up the good work!!


PS I think I'm a little bit in love with Jean too - albeit in a she-scares-the-pants-off-me type way.

Barby, you are FANTASTIC! Mimi is no doubt proud of you! Gonna have to catch up on this site. I'm going to grab a coffee (with my allowed amount of coffee cream, of course) and sit down ready to smile and laugh out loud.

Bravo, girls!!!
