  1. SUCCULENT SALMON (for people who don't like fish, and those that do!!) This is a totally awesome recipe, even if you don't like fish. I had it again tonight and am amazed at how much I like it! I posted it on the Fab 40's but it is such a good recipe that I wanted to give it more coverage. Deb ran it through Mastercook and came up with 7 points per serving, but you could actually cut the portion down to 4 ozs when serving and use less oil to saute the salmon to get a lower point value. It IS a CORE recipe though. 10 oz Salmon fillet (remove the skin) 2 med red potatoes 1 lg onion, sliced in rings 8 baby carrots (more if you like them), cut in 2 inch pieces Broccoli florets (I use one very small head, recipe doesn't specify) 1/4 cup orange juice (I just squeezed one orange) 1 tbsp olive oil (the trick I use is to spray pan with Pam and just a dab of oil) 1/2 tsp dried Thyme 1/2 tsp dried Basil 1 pkg of Herb-ox, low-sodium (I use the granules - it mixes better) Salt and pepper to taste 1. Cut the potatoes into thin slices (about 1/4 inch, not too thick, but not too thin) and place in a pan of cold water, bring to boil 2. Add the carrots, let cook 3 minutes and salt the water, cook until tender (another 6-7 minutes) About 2 minutes before finished, add broccoli. Cook until all are tender (but not overdone) 3. Drain vegetables, add salt and pepper (if desired), and put back in pan (keep warm). 4. In a large, non-stick skillet, saute onions (this is where I spray the pan with Pam and add only a dab of olive oil for flavor). 5. When onions start to brown, move them to the side and place the salmon fillet, fat side down in center of pan. Turn the heat up to med-high. 6. Saute Salmon until flaky on bottom and starting to turn white in color, flip over so that the salmon is now laying on bottom side (where the skin used to be). Add Thyme, Basil, Herb-ox, salt and pepper. Cover and saute until salmon is almost done. 7. Add 1/2 cup of water, boullion, and orange juice, stir so that onions are well dispersed in the liquid. Lower heat, cover, and simmer 3 minutes, basting occasionally 9. Add vegetables and arrange in a semi-circle around salmon, simmer another 2 minutes, basting occasionally Using a plastic spatula, cut the salmon in half in pan and serve with vegetables, adding a few spoonfuls of the sauce. This recipe takes about 15 minutes to cook (even though it looks like it has a lot of steps), maybe 5 minutes to prepare. It makes two big servings. DH and I always have leftovers. If you like your salmon a little "rarer", pink in the middle, cut your simmer time down a little. Me, it better be flaky throughout - I don't do sushi!!!!

  4. Taking A Centipede to Church A single guy decides life would be more fun if he had a pet. So he went to the pet store and told the owner that he wanted to buy an unusual pet. After some discussion, he finally bought a centipede, (100-legged bug), which came in a little white box to use for his house. He took the box back home, found a good location for the box, and decided he would start off by taking his new pet to church with him. So he asked the centipede in the box, "Would you like to go to church with me today, we will have a good time." But there was no answer from his new pet. This bothered him a bit, but he waited a few minutes and then asked him again, "How about going to church with me and receive blessings?" But again, there was no answer from his new friend and pet. So he waited a few minutes more, thinking about the situation. He decided to ask him one more time; this time putting his face up against the centipede's house and shouting, "Hey, in there! Would you like to go to church with me and learn about The Lord???" Scroll down!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS! . . . . . . . . . A little voice came out of the box: "I heard you the first time! I'm putting on my shoes." [ February 04, 2004, 08:13 PM: Message edited by: GrahamCracker ]
  5. These are too, too funny! On a hospital door to the colonoscopy unit: "To expedite your visit, please back in." On a plumber's truck: "We repair what your husband fixed." On the trucks of a plumbing company: "Don't sleep with a drip. Call your plumber." Pizza shop slogan: "7 days without pizza makes one weak." Sign over a gynecologist's office: "Dr. Jones, at your cervix." Another pizza shop slogan: "Buy our pizza. We knead the dough." At! a tire shop: "Invite us to your next blowout." Door of a plastic surgeon's office: "Hello. Can we pick your nose?" At a towing company: "We don't charge an arm and a leg. We want tows." In a non-smoking area: "If we see smoke, we will assume you are on fire and take appropriate action." On a maternity room door: "Push. Push. Push." At an optometrist's office: "If you don't see what you're looking for, you've come to the right place." On a taxidermist's window: "We really know our stuff." In a podiatrist's office: "Time wounds all heels." On a fence: "Salesmen welcome! Dog food is expensive." At a car dealership: "The best way to get back on your feet -- miss a car payment." Outside a muffler shop: "No appointment necessary. We hear you coming." In a veterinarian's waiting room: "Be back in 5 minutes. Sit! Stay!" At the electric company: "We would be de-lighted if you pay your bill. However, if you don't, you will be." In a restaurant window: "Don't stand there and be hungry. Come on in and get fed up." In the front yard of! a funeral home: "Drive carefully. We'll wait." At a propane filling station: "Tank heaven for little grills." And don't forget the sign at a radiator shop: "Best place in town to take a leak."
  6. Gina! W :eek: W! Fifty pounds down! Weigh to go! Keep up the good work!
  7. Beautiful! Just Beautiful! Like a butterfly. You are an inspiration to us all! Congratulations!
  8. Oh please tell me it is not so! I have been eating the Happy Caramel Apples from WalMart and when I first checked the nutrition values it worked out to 3 points (there were 4 apples to a pack - 3 pts each). I was happy in my little caramel world and failed to check the next package I bought. I have since been buying them from Sam's - same brand - Happy Caramel Apples - only after reading this post I went back and checked the nutritional value. The ones from Sam's are listed at 210 Cal, 7 Fat, 5 Fiber, for a total of 4 Pts each! I guess I better check them each time, maybe these apples were a little bigger, or something! Good thing I haven't been eating my flex points (or HAVE I?????)

  13. Hi Charski! I like hot, spicy stuff too, cast iron stomach and all. What I did last time was instead of sprinkling seasoned salt on them before the quick saute, I sprinkled them freely with Emeril's Essence. Woo Whee! I liked them! DH doesn't care for spicy so after the smoke settled from his ears I gave him the ones I had seasoned with SeasonSalt only. Sometimes men have no sense of humor at all!
  14. Okay, okay, Okay! I'm adding my name to the list of GLOP converts. I made it according to the original recipe only my salsa is a SW salsa that has black beans and corn in it. While cooking the ground turkey I plastered it with garlic powder and chipotle seasoning. Then I mixed all ingredients and ate warm in a ff tortilla - yummers in my tummers (and W :eek: W did it have a kick and a half, because I also used medium hot salsa with the chipotle seasoning!). All I gotta say is I got a lotta bang for my buck! Being Lactose intolerant, I did have to take a lactaid pill but cottage cheese and yogurt don't seem to bother me as much as milk and ice cream. Don't know why, unless it breaks down differently in the system, so this was a keeper! This afternoon I had it cold on baked chips and it was even better. It tastes just like a bean dip I make that has refried beans, salsa, and cream cheese, except different consistency. DH couldn't get past the name. :rolleyes: Sure am glad it freezes, cuz it's just me and the dogs now!
