  1. I made this tonight and it was fantastic! It's quite a bit of prep, so good for a weekend meal. But the recipe yields to pans so you can bake one now, and freeze one for later. 1 serving equals one good sized piece for 5 points. Enjoy- Julez From Cooking spray 3 cups chopped onion 10 cup fresh spinach 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded sharp provolone cheese 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 2 large eggs 1 (15-ounce) carton part-skim ricotta cheese 1 (15-ounce) carton fat-free ricotta cheese 3 cups diced peeled butternut squash 6 cups Marinara 12 oven-ready lasagna noodles (such as Barilla) 1 cup (4 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese Preheat oven to 375°.Heat a large Dutch oven coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat.

  2. I made this tonight and it was delish and so easy to make. Definately a keeper!
  3. Hi Sandy- I eat a lot of prepared foods also- for convienence. What about adding olive oil to a packet of steamed microwaveable veggies? Or if you eating a sald, make your own dressing with oil and balsamic? My friend as work was telling me she adds a serving of flaxseed to her yogurt each morning. I think you will find that there are many potential ways you could get these oils in with little effort. Good luck- Julez
  4. I made this for dinner tonight and was actually quite impressed. I cut back on the chicken by a tad, and also reduced the sour cream. I ended up dividing mine into 6 servings est. @ 10pts. each. It was a rather large slice and I couldn't finish it. DH even liked this dish and he's pretty picky. Definately a keeper- and easy! -Julez

    Blue Cheese Dressing

    Thanks for posting this recipe- I love Blue Cheese dressing but have pretty much considered it off limits since WW. As for good buffalo sauce, I really enjoy Tom's brand. -Julez
  6. Thanks! Sounds almost to good to be true for only 2pts...
  7. This sounds great- how many points is it?
  8. Hi- Does anyone know where I can buy the WW Smoothie mix packets online? I don't have a meeting center real close by, and I love these as a yummie 1 pt. snack. Thanks! -Julez
  9. Hi Buddies- Today I decided to "venture" out a bit with my lunch prep and was quite pleased with how this turned out... thought I'd share. 1 pt. english muffin (low point bagel would work nicely too) 1 wedge garlic & herb Laughing Cow (or any flavor) 2 thin slices of ham (or other low point deli meat) Bake in the oven until english muffin is toasted and ham slightly browned. Yummy for 3 points! -Julez
  10. I bought a package at the grocery store today- it came with a total of 12 small california rolls. Anyone know how many points? Thanks, Julez
  11. I live in NH and they have some of these products in my local grocery store. The only one I've tried is the orange cream bars and they taste very good if you like that sort of thing. I look forward to trying some of the other flavors. -Julez
  12. Hi- I've been saving this recipe for a while and decide to make it tonight. Can anyone comment on how much of the pork/sauce mixture you get for the 4 points? It says serves 8 at 4 pts. / serving, but I'm not sure what the serving size is. Thanks! -Julez:wave:
  13. In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth and populated the Earth with broccoli, cauliflower and spinach, green and yellow and red vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives. Then using God's great gifts, Satan created Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream and Krispy Creme Donuts. And Satan said, "You want chocolate with that?" And Man said, "Yes!" and Woman said, "and as long as you're at it, add some sprinkles." And they gained 10 pounds. And Satan smiled. And God created the healthful yogurt that Woman might keep the figure that Man found so fair. And Satan brought forth white flour from the wheat, and sugar from the cane and combined them. And Woman went from size 6 to size 14. So God said, "Try my fresh green salad." And Satan presented Thousand-Island Dressing, buttery croutons and garlic toast on the side. And Man and Woman unfastened their belts following the repast. God then said, "I have sent you heart healthy vegetables and olive oil in which to cook them." And Satan brought forth deep fried fish and chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own platter. And Man gained more weight and his cholesterol went through the roof. God then created a light, fluffy white cake, named it "Angel Food Cake," and said, "It is good." Satan then created chocolate cake and named it "Devil's Food." God then brought forth running shoes so that His children might lose those extra pounds. And Satan gave cable TV with a remote control so Man would not have to toil changing the channels. And Man and Woman laughed and cried before the flickering blue light and gained pounds. Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with nutrition. And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy center into chips and deep-fried them. And Man gained pounds. God then gave lean beef so that Man might consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite. And Satan created McDonald's and its 99-cent double cheeseburger. Then said, "You want fries with that?" And Man replied, "Yes! And super size them!" And Satan said, "It is good." And Man went into cardiac arrest. God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery. Then Satan created HMOs. There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.
  14. Okay, have since done a few variations and I love them all. Tried chocolate Slim-Fast powder too- great for more of a dessert like treat Made a version with the vanilla powder, and a small banana and it was yummy! Tonight I made the shake with 2 TBS of wheat germ. Granted it adds another point, but for 5 pts, I was full and it is such a great tasting, heathiful shake. For me, the calcium intake/ dairy is really a huge benefit and I get it through both the Slim Fast & Silk Light. Yum yum
