  1. this recipe was posted on another WW board i belong to. i made it for dinner tonight and it was very yummy and filling! DH loved it! that said, you can experiment with this recipe quite a bit. if you're not a fan of spicy food, cut it down to one jalapeno pepper. and if i make it again, i will probably use more chicken, less cheese. other ideas: garnish with FF sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa. ---- Chicken Chilaquiles Serves 4 Points: 7 3 - 3 oz boneless chicken breast 12 small (6 inch) fat-free flour tortilla(s) 10 oz low-fat cheddar or colby cheese butter-flavor cooking spray 1/4 cup canned jalapeno peppers or 2 fresh 1 small onion 1 1/2 cups fat-free chicken stock 1 clove garlic Preheat oven to 400˚. Slice tortillas into strips and toss tortillas with a couple sprays of cooking spray and season with salt. Dump onto baking sheet. Toast in oven until golden brown, tossing occasionally, 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan, add 1/4 cup chicken stock. Add onion, jalapeno, garlic, salt and pepper (These items only need to be roughly chopped because they’ll be going thru a blender anyway). Cook until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the rest of the chicken broth and simmer for 5 minutes. Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth. Grill chicken on foreman grill with salt and pepper until done, 4 minutes. Once it has cooled enough to touch, shred meat. Spread toasted tortilla strips into an ovenproof platter or baking dish. Scatter chicken over strips then scatter cheese over chicken. Pour Chile puree over the top and Bake until cheese has melted, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. woo hoo! i can finally drink hard lemonade again and not have to break the points bank! i found mike's light hard lemonade at kroger's yesterday. it's only got 96 calories per bottle, so that's 2 points compared to 6 points for the regular stuff. i thought it tasted just as good as the regular.

  7. you can use frozen, but i splurged and bought fresh strawberries and blueberries. i imagine it'd be good with any berries. enjoy!
  8. berries and ricotta cream (serves 4) 1/2 cup skim ricotta 2 teaspoons powdered sugar 1 tablespoon rum 3 cups of berries whip ricotta, sugar and rum until smooth. divide berries into four serving cups, top with ricotta mixture.. easy, yummy and only 2 points!

  9. i just want to note that when you're considering what to order, you're not limited on the sandwiches that say "low fat." check out the nutrition info on their web site first -- most of the 6 inch sandwiches are 5 pts. or under. a few weeks ago i ordered a spinach popper (yummy cheese melted in it) and i think it was just 5 pts.
  10. DH and i just had this tonight and it was DELICIOUS. we're definitely going to pizza hut now when we want pizza
  11. grainne, a big to you! i'm in the same boat -- it took about 20 pounds for me! and yes, it seems like the weight is coming off sooo much slower than it took me to lose it. like you, i'm learning my lesson. i'm actually going to continue to go to meetings every WEEK when i'm lifetime again. it can't hurt to take an hour out of my week to reaffirm my healthy lifestyle.
  12. OK, i've posted glowing reviews about several of my favorite products on here so far, but here is something you should NOT buy. i can't believe it's not butter fat free spread tastes ICKY. my parents bought it and i had some on a roll last night for dinner, and it was very gross. it's hard to describe, just very fake-butterish. some things you can't go fat free on, i guess ...
  13. another thumbs up for krusteaz. DH and i use their pancake mix all the time, but i've recently discovered their tasty 2-point muffin mixes. i've tried the apple spice and the cranberry orange. both very yummy! (i've seen them at kroger and meijer)
  14. susie, yeah, it's boxed. i liked it because it's all natural (no hydrogenated oils), and because the white cheddar has a nice little sharp cheese taste. plus, individual servings are a bonus.
