Remember this song?
Oh, what a beautiful morning
Oh, what a beautiful day......

* This salad is so gooooooooooooood. We now eat it every day in addition to another salad (with more vegetables)
* So easy to make.
* Prepared in minutes
* Great for company and of course for you, every day
* Serve in a clear nice bowl to show the beautiful colors

It is from cooking light book called:"The best of Cooking Lighr everyday favorites"
Over 500 of their all-time greatest recipes
2007, Oxmoor house publishing

Notes!

1. I'm using Earthbound farm organic half and half: Half spring mix and half baby spinach.
It comes in a big plastic container - 1 lb. weight.
2. I do use the walnut oil because the flavor is better. If you change it to olive oil, you'll get milder results.
3. According to Cooking Light nutrition information, each serving is 2 PointsPlus. But because the apple (or pear) are 0 points, I think this salad is only 1 PointPlus per serving
4. I substitute sometimes a pear for the apple. Great taste!
5. I use any sweet apple I like
6. Make your salad your main meal by adding protein to your likening and a stachy vegetable

GREEN SALAD WITH APPLES AND MAPLE-WALNUT DRESSING

Yield 4 serving
1 PointPlus per serving Please read note # 3)

Ingredients

6 cups gourmet salad greens (please read note # 1)

2 tablespoons cider vinegar ( I use apple cider vinegar)
2 tablespoons maple syrup ( the pure one! no imitations)
2 teaspoons whole-grain Dijon mustard (I didn't use whole grain one. Have to look for it)
1 1/2 teaspoons walnut oil ( I do not sunstitute with olive oil)
1/8 teaspoon salt ( I omit the salt)
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper

Method

1. Combine salad greens and applein a large bowl (a beautiful bowl will make the salad tastes better....smile)
2. Combine vinegar and next 5 ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle over salad; toss gently to coat.

Yield 4 serving
1 PointPlus per serving (please read note # 3)

4 pounds beef chuck roast
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, "Wesson"
1 can (10.75 - ounce) condensed cream of celery soup, "Cambell's" (I used healthy choice)
1 packet (1-ounce) onion soup mix, Lipton
1 cup reduced-sodium beef broth, "Swanson"
1/4 cup steak sauce, "A1 steack sauce"

DIRECTIONS

1. In a 4-to 5-quart slow cooker (I used 6 quarts slow cooker), combine frozen onions and carrots.
2.Season roast with salt and pepper. In a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook roast in hot oil over medium-high heat until brown on all sides. Place in slow cooker on top of onions and carrots.
3. In a medium bowl, stir together cream of celery soup, onion soup mix, beef broth, and steak sauce. Pour over top of roast.
4. Cover and cook on high heat setting for 3 to 4 hours OR low heat setting for 8 to 9 hours (I cooked the first hour on HIGH setting, and then continued with low setting for 8 more hours (or more...) untill the meat was really soft.

THE MOST FILLING STEAK PITA
Total for this: 5.5 points.

1 Josephs Pita = 1
2 Wedges Laughing Cow Light = 1.5
3 oz Tyson Steak Strips = 3
1 cup mushrooms = 0
1/2 cup onions = 0

I sauteed the steak, onions and mushrooms in water....then I cut the pita in half, spread each half with 1 wedge of LCow on the inside and filled evenly with steak mixture. I am so full I am almost uncomfortable...but it was soooo good I couldn't stop.

Bean Soup

Forgot about this one.

Can of black beans
Frozen corn
Salsa
Can of low salt tomatos

Drain and rinse the beans. Mix it all up in a pan and heat to boiling. Add spices if you like or a little broth if you like it thinner. Voila! Bean soup! You can add leftover cubed chicken too for a little more protein. You can also top it with plain yogurt and a sprinkling of cilantro.

I Don't know if this qualifies because it marinates the night before, but I ate this last night and it was fabulous!!

Roasted Rosemary Chicken

1 package boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut breast in half if they are large
fresh rosemary
6-10 garlic cloves sliced
1/2 - 1 cup black olives (I used niciose)
olive oil
salt and pepper
1 lemon

1. marinate the chicken over night with the olive oil, sliced garlic, fresh rosemary leaves pulled off of the stems and crushed in your hands (I used a large amount - about a handful of leaves), olives, salt and pepper.

2. The next day juice the lemon and add the lemon juice and zest from half the lemon to the chicken and mix. Let sit for not more than 30 minutes before cooking.

3. Cook in a covered pan for about 30 min at 350 degrees. If your chicken breasts are large this could take up to 45 minutes. If you are feeling up to it, remove the pan from the oven and baste once while it is cooking.

This tastes great served with mashed cauliflower.

One of my favorite quick meals is SOUP and SNADWICH.
I always have soup in the refrigirator.

I put LEFT-OVERS COLD ROASTED CHICKEN (that I buy, NOT cook) on a honey whole wheat bread( o Fat, & high Fiber) with reduced fat Mayonnaise, and slices of tomatoes.

Together with a hot filling soup or vegetarian chili... YUMMY!

Fabulous Goddess Salad for One

Bagged Salad Greens
Dried cranberries or raisins
Nuts or pignoli
1 oz. goat cheese
2 favorite veggies (or one favorite veggie and a chopped apple or peach): tomatos, or carrot shreds or cucumber slices or leftover steamed green beans, etc.
Optional: Leftover chicken breast cubed

Toss it all up together.

Make a dressing of one TBSP olive oil, favorite herbs, dash of orange juice and dash of balsamic vinegar, 1/2 tsp honey, 1/2 tsp dijon mustard. Shake that all together and pour over salad. Top with freshly ground black pepper and serve with wasa bread or rye crisps. YUM!

Lola
Here is an idea....

On the way home, stop at a supermarket that has a FABULUS Salad Bar.

Pick up a roasted chicken.
Make yourself a Gorgeous Salad from the Salad Bar, and ENJOY your Dinner without even cooking it.

I'll take that roasted chicken even further the next day.

Before I had a husband who ate it all, I would use the leftover meat and make a little pot pie with lots of frozen veggies and some chicken brothe added to a rue(sp?).

THEN, the next day, I'd take the carcass and make a soup.

Great ideas. Here's another one that's really an old WW recipe. And I still love it and just remembered it after all these years.

Pasta with Ricotta

Any type of pasta, I used 2 oz. of Barilla Pasta Plus. Boil according to directions.

Drain.

Add 1/2 cup of favorite jarred sauce. Heat in microwave.

Top with 1/4 cup of part skim ricotta and dried basil leaves.

Done!
Very yummy and quick. I actually cooked a whole box of pasta yesterday and then put it in a zip lock bag and I'm taking it out as needed. So I brought pasta salad on a picnic, hubby had some for dinner last night, and I had some for lunch today. This way, it's flexible. Heck, this is what they do in a restaurant to save time. Why not at home?

I takes more time to READ this recipe than to PREPARE it !!!

I cooked this NEW delicious Chicken recipe and my husband raved about it.

THE BEST PART: IT took 1 MINUTE to prepare !

From:
Mom's Updated Recipe Box.
250 family favorites made QUICK and HEALTHY by Donna L. Weihofen, R.D. (page 136)


CHICKEN BREAST WITH APRICOT CURRY SAUCE
A unique flavor combination

SERVE 4
4 WW points per serving

INGREDIENTS
6 ounce apricot preserves
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
2 tablespoons water( I put a little more)
4 bonned and skinned chicken breast halves
1/4 teaspoon salt( I eliminated the salt)
1/4 teaspoon pepper( I put freshly ground black pepper)

IMPORTANT NOTE:

I did NOT use the OVEN METHOD. Too long !
I highly recoment the SKILLET METHOD !!!

SKILLET METHOD (much faster)

Instead of baking the chicken(see below), it can be done in a skillet, than topped with the sauce.
Partially cover pan and simmer the chicken WITH the sauce for 15 minutes or until chicken is completely done.

NOTES:
1. I put the chicken in the skillet and poured sauce all over it right away.
2. 5 minutes before it was done, I cut the chicken to pieces (like for beef stew), and that allowed more sauce to get to each piece The chicken half was too thick ).
3. I took 1 MINUTE to prepare.
4. Very elegant for company too.



OVEN METHOD
preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 7x11 inch baking pan.
In a small saucepan, heat apricot preserve, mustars, and curry powder until mixture comes to a boil.
Thin with water, remove from heat and set aside.
Place chicken in baking pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake 20 minutes.
Spoon sauce on top and bake another 20 minutes or until chicken is completely done.

OOOH! I just thought of another meal.

Maybe it should go on the chicken breast thread, but it's so quick, I thought I'd put it here.

Before you leave for work, pop a chicken breast in a zip loc baggie and marinade (in the fridge) in fat free Italian dressing.

When you're ready to cook it, put it on a George Forman grill. Add a veggie and some sliced bread.

Easy and SO yummy.

One of my new favorite fast meals is

Pierogi's with black beans. Add a salad and have some light sour cream on the side and even my husband's appetite is satisfied.

You can buy Pierogi's in the freezer section (Mrs. T's are the best) I just nuke them in a bowl of water for 5 minutes, open a can of black beans and nuke them for 2 or 3. Voila!

I'm a teacher and often get home late in the evenings. My new hubby doesn't cook, so I'm anxious to see other quick recipes we can use on those late evenings.

I thought, since I am on the go all the time, this might be a fun thread! Here's my dinner from tonight. Not completely complete, but oh, so fast!!!!

Scrambled eggs in a Pita

Discovered something yummy new that takes oh, 1.5 minutes to prep. Egg whites, scrambled, nuked for 1:20, throw in a pita with part-skim ricotta and salt and pepper. Really good and filling. Organic grapes and tea on the side. Ta da!!!!
