Here is the list of meals that we had this week.
Meals & Recipes for Week of 7/8/2012
Sunday 7/8: Stir Fry Beef over rice - no recipe, I just counted the beef and olive oil that I used, the rest was all vegetables, served over 1/2 cup of rice. Easy, peasy.
Monday, 7/9: Loaded Turkey Santa Fe Baked potato skins - 2 points each
Very, very good. This recipe made 14 loaded potatoes - you can eat as many of these as you have points to use up. Loved it. I'm definitely keeping this one.
Tuesday 7/10: Baked Lemon Garlic Tilapia - 5 points
Good and made a couple of extra meals to freeze.
Wednesday 7/11: Pei Wei take out (Tofu/Veg dish) - 9 points
I'm not wild about the way Pei Wei cuts their tofu in long strips. I much prefer the cubed cut that takes on the taste of the dish more. I'm pretty sure we won't have this again. To get the 9 point version, I had to order with brown rice, which I'm not a big fan of either. Oh well, at least I didn't have to cook today!
Thursday 7/12: Chicken Panini with Provolone - 9 points
I used fresh spinach instead of the arugula, which I'm not a fan of. This was EXCELLENT! I bought a loaf of ciabatta bread and used 1/7th of it for each serving. The points value was correct that way, then I just froze the rest of the loaf to use another time. I don't have a panini press (does anyone really have one of those?) so I just used two fry pans to press the sandwich. Yummmm! John liked it too!
Friday 7/13: John's ball game night - quick spaghetti with ground beef, wheat spaghetti noodles. I found that the organic sauce that I use is only 1 point for 1/2 cup of sauce. Nice!
Saturday 7/14: I had planned to make a vegetarian chili but we went to the movies (I took my rice cakes to snack on there. I recommend the Quaker "Quakes Rice Snacks, Sweet Chili ones. You get 18 pieces for only 4 points and they are tasty!) We ended up eating out, grilled tilapia, wide rice and steamed vegetables at the Islamorada Restaurant at the Bass Pro Shop.
