Sugar-Free Lemon Pie recipe, so refreshing!

We live on the beautiful Gulf Coast in a beautiful city with access to pools, tennis, golf & the friendliest neighbors ever!  We are a stones throw away from fishing, casinos, waterparks and love all of it!  We have 2 daughters, 1 son, 3 beautiful grand-daughters and 3 soon-to-be stepsons.  God has truly blessed us in the family department.

I have all this and yet the only thing I ever blog about is my weight.  I agree that my Friday weigh-ins are important to keep me committed to my healthy lifestyle.  Today it dawned on me that perhaps I need to give equal attention to other parts of my life....so, beginning today this blog will be about so much more than dieting.  I will totally understand if my fellow WLS bloggers want to skip over these posts.  This blog is about me and what makes me happy and gives my life meaning.

Father's Day Breakfast @ Cracker Barrel
 


Father's Day was yesterday and we all treated Hubby like the king he is. He is truly a wonderful man and Father.   We started the day swimming laps for 30 minutes.  Afterwards, we met our Son, DIL & grandsons-to-be at Cracker Barrel and had a great time.  Our daughters were off doing Fathers day with their DH's and kids.  The rest of the day, I tried really hard to let Hubby do his own thing.  He spent the day doing his two favorite things watching baseball and horseracing. 
I fertilized our garden with some miracle grow.  We have not had much luck with our garden this year, I think we may have planted too late.  I am trying everything I can to get the plants to show some growth.

Dinner was delicious baked blackened catfish with fresh zucchini and carrots.  For dessert I made a sugar/fat free lemon pie.  Its so easy to make and no baking, here is the recipe:

Lemon icebox pie
1 reduced fat graham cracker pie shell
1 box  fat/sugar free lemon pudding
1 lemon
1-3/4 cups skim/fat free milk
1 tube/pk crystal light lemonade mix (pk that makes 2Qt pitcher full)
1 8oz Sugar Free Cool Whip-thawed
Combine the lemonade mix and pudding in a medium sized bowl with a whisk.  Slowly add the milk & juice from lemon while whisking.  Fold in thawed Cool Whip and mix until its fluffy.  Pour into pie shell and refrigerate about an hour.  OMG is so good !

  2. Hubby loves it, last time I squeezed a little fresh lemon juice into it to make it more lemony.
