  1. To answer my own question, both are on the menu but it's hard to find the WW meals. Also, they have a disclaimer that local restaurants may prepare foods differently and the nutritional values vary from location to location. I would chose the grilled shrimp but I'm not too sure about the asian salad. I actually chose the 7 oz. sirloin, plain baked potato and fresh veggies which is on the regular menu.
  2. I haven't been to Applebee's for ages, but I wondered if it take the place of the WW section on the menu?
  3. I found boxes of 5 at Dollar Tree -- just a buck! This is a true bargain-hunters delight! (Both in my pocketbook and my points budget!)
  4. I read about this program on HungryGirl. Check it out: http://www.wwincrediblerewards.com/index.php?category_id=1 Most of the products sold in the meeting rooms qualify for these rewards and most grocery products, but NOT Smart Ones.
  5. Just a tip from my meeting today: Don't forget to write the points on the product you're buying. You don't even have to wait until you get home. Mark it as you put it in your basket, that way you won't have to redo your calculation when you get home.
  6. The SW style vegetable is very good. Just enough of a kick. BTW, remember if you have 1/2 a can, it's 0 points; but a whole can is 2.
  7. I'm glad you guys think it sounds good. I enjoyed it. I have 3 pieces in the freezer for the nights I'm home alone. BTW, use uncooked noodles. When you cover the pan with foil, it keeps the moisture in and the noodles "cook".
  8. I made up this recipe last night. I thought it was good, but my fiance noticed the spinach and wouldn't eat it. What do you think? 7 oz Whole wheat lasagna 2 cup 1% low-fat cottage cheese 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese 6 serving Ragu Parmesan & Mozzarella pasta sauce 4 oz part-skim mozzarella cheese 1/2 cup chopped frozen spinach thawed & drained 2 Tbsp Italian seasoning 13 oz canned Chunk Breast Of Chicken Pour 3/4 c. Ragu into bottom of 9 x 9 sprayed pan. Place about 1/2 of the canned chicken over the sauce. Top with 3-1/2 lasagna noodles. Mix cottage cheese, parmesan cheese, drained spinach and Italian seasoning. Pour over noodles. Add another layer of noodles. Spread remaining chicken over noodles. Pour remaining Ragu sauce over the chicken. Top with shredded mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with more Italian seasoning if desired. Cover with foil. Bake in 350 deg. oven 45 min. Uncover and bake for 10 min. more. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Makes 8 servings - 6 points each. I used etools to determine the points.
  9. The recipe is posted on the first page.
  10. You can buy as many prepay packages as you want. In theory, you could prepay for the entire year. Think of the money you'd save --- and the weight you'd lose!
  11. See my 50 ways under the Entertainment section. This has been fun! And thanks for your input.
  12. Play the concertina, Corrina! (very rapidly)
  13. Thanks again Buddies. Now, how about making an exercise rhyme with YOUR name? That should be fun! (I'[m trying to get at least 50 names, total.) I'll start... Make your exercise merry, Mary!
  14. Wow! I like your imaginations! Want to come to my meeting next week and inspire us? Keep those rhyming names coming! Thanks!
  15. Hi everyone, I lead a meeting and next week I'd like to use a parady of the the song "50 Ways to Leave your Lover"? We are going to talk about activity and I need help with some of the ryhmes. Some examples are: Go climb a hill, Bill. Take a hike, Mike. etc. Some of the names I need help with include: Mary, Betty, Melissa, Pam, Joe, Kevin, Vickie, Carol, Carrie, Linde, Valerie and Gloria. If anyone can help, it will be you guys! Thanks!
  16. I've been buying whipped butter since I read (or heard) that margarine is only 1 molecule away from plastic! Sort of changed my mind about any kind of margarine (although B&B is pretty good). I don't use much; but it has a great flavor and a little goes a long way.
  17. I found these at our local Super Wal-Mart. They are called Carb Trimmer bagels. I bought the raisin variety and they have 100 calories, 15 g. fiber and 1 g. fat for a pretty tasty 1 pt. bagel. I also tried the Pepperidge Farm 1 pt. English muffins which must be pretty popular since I was only able to find them once. I thought they were good, too.
  18. I have the same reaction to ice cream -- especially if it's eaten in a larger than normal portion. I don't care how it's made; it has the same effect on my digestive system. Doesn't usually stop me though! What size was the portion from Cold Stone? I think their portions are larger than 1/2 cup!
  19. I found this recipe in "Best Recipes: Diabetic Cooking" magazine. You don't have to be diabetic to love these: Cherry Pineapple Cheesecake Gems 1 jar (10 oz.) maraschino cherries, drained, stems removed, halved 1-1/4 c. graham cracker crumbs 1/8 c. canola oil 2 pkg. (8 oz. each) fat-free cream cheese, softened 1 pkg. (8 oz.) reduced fat cream cheese, softened 1 c. Splenda, granular form 1 c. egg subsitute 1/2 c. nonfat evaporated milk 2 tsp. almond extract 1/4 tsp. salt 1 can (8 oz.) crushed pineapple in its own juice, drained 1) Preheat oven to 325 deg. F. Line mini muffin baking pan with cupcake liners. Place cherry half in bottom of each cup. 2) Place crumbs in med. bowl. While brisky stirring crumbs with fork, drizzle in oil a little a time, stirring until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. 3) In a large bowl, beat the cream cheeses with mixer until smooth. Add Splenda, egg sub., milk, almond extract, and salt. Beat until smooth. Chop remaining cherries; stir into filling with pineapple. Spoon into each muffin cup, covering cherries. Sprinkle each cup with crust mixture. Press crust lightly into filling. 4) Place pan onto baking sheet. Bake 15-20 minutes or until filling puffs and begins to crack. Cool on wire rack. Refrigerate 4-6 hours or overnight before serving. 5) To serve, peel away cupcake liners and invert gems cherry side up onto serving plate. Makes 16 servings or about 48 bite-sized gems. 0 fiber; 160 cal.; 5 g. fat = 4 points for 3 gems. (And who says you have to eat 3?) Mary in NM
