When I joined Weight Watchers, I vowed to never give up the good stuff. You know, potatoes. And dessert. This delicious (and light!) Weight Watchers Tater Tot Casserole ensures that you get to eat the good stuff while staying on track with your Weight Watchers points. But here is the honest to goodness truth about how we handle the cooking situation in my marriage. I DON’T Cook. It’s not that I can’t cook, but if this is a domain my husband wants to take over and be responsible for- WHY WOULD I MESS WITH THAT? I guess if I had this burning desire to create the perfect quiche I might want to share the cooking responsibilities with him, but I have no desire to create any kind of food that requires more than peeling off a plastic top and popping it in the microwave for 50 seconds.
I never got a thrill out of kneading dough with my hands or flipping the perfectly shaped pancake. My husband, on the other hand, takes such pride in the meals he cooks, the recipes he concocts- that far be it from me to take that away from him- and to be honest- it is ONE LESS THING ON MY PLATE. Also I should add that recently my husband asked me to watch the beans he was cooking and unfortunately I didn’t notice they were burning until the smoke alarm went off- so yeah, there’s that. So this my husband will be whipping up this Weight Watchers Tater Tot Casserole (Only 3 SmartPoints! Freestyle) ( and I will be meticulously cleaning all his mess as he says- “WHEN I’M Creative I can’t be bothered to worry about errant veggie shavings and such”) keep reading for the recipe!
