  1. I like Henris raspberry vinegrette. I have read, in several places, that in order to get the most nutrients out of vegetable it's best to eat them with a bit of fat. Of course, I know how hard it can be to stretch out the points at times! Anone else hear/read of the nutrient/fat connection? Sheryl

    Quaker corn bran is very good. Two points for 1-1/2 cups. Usually add 1/2 banana or 1 TBL dried blueberries for another point. Sheryl
  3. Thanks for posting the great article. Sheryl
  4. Hi buddies, What can one do, besides make gumbo, with andouille sausage? DH bought a package I should use. Is it similar to a good ol Wisconsin brat? Thanks, Sheryl
  5. Hi Buddies, This is a delicious seafood dish. May seem a bit high in points, but it does include a generous serving of pasta. I like to serve with steamed broccoli.

  6. Hi Buddies, Made this for dinner last night. Low in points, delicious, and filling:), just the type of recipe I love. EGG FOO YONG Serves two - generously 7.5 points per serving Patties: 4 large eggs 8 points 1 28 oz can Chinese stir fry vegetables, WELL DRAINED* 0 points 1/2 of seasoning packet from Oriental Ramen noodles 0 points 1/2 cup diced ham 3 points 2 tsp canola oil 2 points Sauce: 1 cup chicken boullioun, cold 0 points 1 tsp Accent 0 points 1 tsp sugar 0 points 1 tsp mollases 0 points 1 tbs corn starch 0 points 2 tsp low sodiuim soy sauce 0 points For patties. Beat eggs very well. Beat in Ramen seasoning(discard noodles). Stir in veggies and ham(could use shrimp). Using a soup ladle drop onto hot, greased griddle into four patties. Egg will tend to spread, keep pushing back with a spatula toward center of each patty. When brown on the bottom carefully flip over. Continue cooking until brown and the eggs are set. Helps to set the eggs if you cover it the last few minutes. Servie with the sauce. For sauce. Stir all sauce ingredients together and cook till thick and bubbly. Even though the ingredients have no point value separately, I add a point per serving to cover the calories. * I draind the veggies by pressing them with a plate inside a colander. Great serviced with fresh fruit and a roll. Sheryl
  7. Great suggestions Mary. Thanks for posting them. Sheryl
  8. Hi Buddies, Looking for point friendly seafood enchilada recipes. Thank you, Sheryl
  9. Thank you, thank you, thank you:) Imagine reaching the age of 42 without knowing how to buy a bra! Even after losing my weight I still have a large chest. I've been buying 40-42 b or c. Come to find out I'm a 36 dd! After reading how to measure on breakout bras web site I went to local department store to have a look around. A very kind saleswoman also measured me and my size was confirmed. Wish I could have bought a bra or two but didn't want to try any on because I had just come from the ymca. I'm sooo anxious to see what a difference the right size might make. Thanks again, Sheryl
  10. Stayed at Breezes Runaway Bay Jamaica in February. Delicious jerk chicken at the beach daily ! Do you have a recipe to share? Thanks Mon Sheryl
  11. Hi riding buddies, I'm shopping for a new bicycle. Right now I ride a Mongoose Hybrid mountain/road bike. Looking for something geared more toward road riding so I can get a bit more speed and less drag from the tires. Am presently considering a Giant FCR 4 or Raleigh C500 or C700. What doe you ride? What do you like/dislike about your bike. Any suggestions, comments, and 2-cents welcome Thank you, Sheryl
  12. Believe it or not, your @ss will get used to the seat in a week or so. Does anybody use riding gloves? Does it help keep fingers from getting numb? Thanks, Sheryl
  13. Bumping up because - MMMMMM, love this soup, as does dh. Sheryl
  14. Yum, Yum, Yum Had the shrimp skewers at Applebees and also a bolw of ww french onion soup. 5 points for the shrimp and 3 for the soup. 2 skewers with 5 shrimp per skewer on a bed of veggie rice. A huge side of steamed yellow squash, fresh mushrooms, green peppers and onions also came with the entree. Almost forgot, there was a terryaki dipping sauce too. The onion soup was every bit as good as it's higher calorie cousin. Rich, thick broth loaded with onions, a large crouton, and melted cheese on top. Awesome! My girlfriend had the sizzling chicken skillet and loved it as well. Can't wait to go back to try the other ww offerings. THANKS APPLEBEES AND WEIGHT WATCHERS Sheryl [ May 20, 2004, 10:00 PM: Message edited by: BEARS ]
