1/2 cup 100% pure pumpkin 1/2 tsp. ground ginger 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon 1/2 cup dark brown sugar 2 cups whole milk 1 large egg 2 large yolks
Bring quart of water to boil in a tea kettle. In the meantime, set 8 6-oz. ovenproof custard cups or ramkekins in 2 8-inch square pans. Adjust over rack to lower middle position and heat oven to 325.
Heat pumpkin and spices in a medium sauce pan over medium heat until puree sputters. Whisk in sugar, then milk. Bring to a simmer. Whisk eggs and yolks in separate bowl. Gradually whisk hot pumpkin mixture into eggs, then pour into custard cups. Set pans in oven. Pour hot water in pans halfway up sides of cups. Bake until custards are set, about 30 minutes.
Remove cups from pans and cool slightly. Place plastic wrap directly over custards to keep a skin from forming. You can keep these refrigerated up to 3 days.

I have a favorite recipe and I have no idea of all the breakdown calorie wise but here goes:
Bean & Potato Soup Ingredients - Fresh Green Beans Potatoes - if you use the small golden or red ones you don't have to peel them Skim Milk Margarine Salt Pepper
Snap or cut beans into bite size pieces. Wash potatoes Fill a large pot about 1/2 full with water and add potatoes. Boil the potatoes until they are just are soft but not falling apart. Fill another pot about 1/4 full with water. Place beans in the pot to boil/steam. Cook beans until they are al dante. Remove both beans and potatoes from heat. Strain the water. Fill large pot about 3/4 full with skim milk and 2 tbsp of margarine. Add potatoes and beans to the milk. Heat on the stove until margarine is melted and milk is warm. Do not let milk boil. Salt and pepper to taste.
Enjoy,this is especially good with very fresh green bean. I have also had this with fresh shelled peas and potatoes. Lyn

I finally like oatmeal! I've been cooking oatmeal using milk instead of water thinking it might make it more tasty. Yesterday I made it for the first time using water and added dried cranberries. I loved it and it was very filling!

That sounds wonderful! Something that we make when we're rushed during the week is to combine cooked whole wheat pasta, whipped cottage cheese, and steamed broccoli (or asparagus). It's a great mock-alfredo dinner. Just wondering how to add some protein to the mix.

This sounds good. Have you tried it without the curry powder? Don't have any in the house at the moment and this sounds good for dinner with Forbidden Rice. Forbidden rice is a purple rice that you can get at your local whole foods store. Crunchier and nuttuer then white rice. Also really pretty!
