It’s back!!!! Lots of StoneGable readers have been sending me email and messages about missing ON THE MENU! And I miss it too! So, I listened and On The Menu is back! Hungry? Let’s go…
I’ve been trying (and the figurative word is TRYING) to lose a few pounds. UGH! I wish I would not love food so much! So, I’m counting my points and following Weight Watchers. I can eat it all I just can’t eat all of it! Oh, but I wish I could!
Some recipes ON THE MENU have the WW points and some don’t. But I try to balance out the menu with great recipes that are on the healthier side… well, most of the time!
I don’t necessarily eat everything on every day’s menu. I cook for my husband Bobby and often others. So I pick and choose what my points allow.
Just a note: I’ve been eating tons of chopped salad that comes in a bag. I love chopped salad but do not like chopping it myself. I find the greens in the bagged chopped salad to be interesting and delicious! Give bagged chopped salads a try. However, I usually don’t use the bagged dressings. I make my own.
Tonight we are having brunch for dinner. Bobby and I love breakfast and brunch foods so every once in a while we eat it for dinner! On the menu, tonight is a delicious crustless chicken and spinach quiche from SKINNY KITCHEN!
- SKINNY CHICKEN AND SPINACH QUICHE
- ARUGULA SALAD WITH SHAVED PARMESAN, PINENUTS, AND LEMON VINAIGRETTE
- MIXED BERRIES
Oh, yum! Bobby and I will really love this healthy stove top Lasagne! Made healthy by bulking it up with more veggies! This recipe is from Slender Kitchen.
- STOVETOP SPINACH AND MUSHROOM LASAGNE
- BAG OF CHOPPED ITALIAN SALAD with HOMEMADE BALSAMIC DRESSING
- CRUSTY BREAD
One of my favorite foodie blogs is Cafe Delites! I’ve made many of Karina’s recipes and they are all fabulous! Tonight’s chicken dish is one of my favorites!
- CREAMY TUSCAN CHICKEN
- SAUTEED BROCCOLI WITH PEPPER FLAKES
We love Chili at StoneGable! And it is a very easy WW meal to count! I found this recipe from RECIPE DIARIES and love it!!! If you like Chili give this one a try!
- TURKEY, CORN AND BLACK BEAN CHILI
- BAG OF CHOPPED SOUTHWEST SALAD
This weekend starts our grilling season here at StoneGable. So we will be grilling some of our favorite meats and other foods this weekend!
We are starting off with a delicious flank steak from A WICKED WISK! Great, easy and informative instructions! We will be grilling our flank steak instead of broiling it. YUM!
My very favorite grilled food is a hamburger! Thick and juicy with all the fixins pilled on high! I’m sharing MY recipe for a fabulous juicy hamburger today!
SUNDAY- HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
Today the guys in my life are grilling! My Mom like grilled chicken so my boys will be making her favorite.
You’ve got to try my Magic Rub! ONE POINT and this rub makes meat taste magically delicious! We use this all the time, grilling or not! If you try one thing this week magic rub should be it!
TREAT OF THE WEEK
These TWO INGREDIENT BROWNIES are perfect! I’m planning on making a pan and cutting them into servings and freezing them to pull out when I have the points left in my day and want a sweet treat! Thanks, MIDGET MOMMA!
