Recipe Round Up

As always, I have been cooking a lot lately.  Here are some yummy recipes that are all Weight Watchers friendly. I have put the Points Plus values in parentheses if you follow the Plan.

Asian Turkey Meatballs with Lime Sesame Dipping Sauce (7 Points Plus)

I made garlic Udon noodles and blistered green beans to go along with the meatballs.  Yummy!

Corn on the cob and a side of sauteed spinach.  Delicious!

I am trying really hard to incorporate more fish into our diet and the above counts right?  My kids won't touch seafood but I keep trying.

I always have chicken thighs on hand so it is nice to just have to buy two ingredients to make this dinner.  You can also see that we eat green beans a lot.  I found a new way to make them and Jason and I are hooked:  In a pan over medium high heat, add olive oil.  Add beans and saute until cooked through.  I always add salt and pepper and garlic as well.

Turkey Burgers with Zucchini (4 Points Plus)

Don't forget to add extra Points Plus for the bun.  The oven fries in the picture are from here.  Very tasty!

Tortellini Soup (8 Points Plus)

I made the boys some sausages with the soup so it wouldn't be vegetarian (my husband just about dies at the thought of no meat) and I made myself a bagel thin cheese sandwich.

Pork Chops with Mint Pesto

I have a ton of mint in my garden that I needed to use up.  I whipped up the mint pesto from this link.

I can't recall what I calculated for the pesto to be honest.  It was very good though!

Honey-Teriyaki Salmon (7 Points Plus)

I have never cooked salmon at home because, well, we don't really like it.  But again, in an effort to branch out and try more fish, I made this recipe.  I was pleasantly surprised.

Isn't that picture crazy?  It is very colorful thanks to my purple cauliflower mash and my roasted pineapple (I mixed a little brown sugar and cinnamon and roasted in the oven for about 15 minutes).  

Coconut Chicken Strips (13 Points Plus if you include the rice)

I love cilantro so I will jump at the chance to include it whenever I can.

Crock Pot Picante Chicken and Black Bean Soup (6 Points Plus)

Yummmmmmm!  I made cornbread and a veggie to round out this meal.

I have made a couple of other meals lately that have been pretty good too, but I don't have pictures.

I hope everyone has an awesome 4th of  July!
