    Tried another new WW recipe. It was okay. I would make it again. Sure am happy to have all those WW cookbooks.

    Going to try a combination of several recipes in the crockpot tomorrow. Chicken thighs, sweet potato, carrots, onion, OJ, curry powder.

    Crock put chicken & sweet potato stew turned out a bit bland, but hubby said that was fine. I would probably try a can of pineapple in place of OJ and chicken broth next time.

    Made pot roast on Sunday, and will definitely do it again. Friday I will do veg soup with ham bone in the crock pot.

    I made the WW fudge pops SD posted quite a while ago. For being on a diet and/or watching sugar intake they were really good but I sure miss the creaminess of the milk. I'm thinking next time adding a bit of sugar-free creamer and see how that works.

    I wonder if fat-free evaporated milk would be good. Not sure if that has sugar. Or fat-free half and half. I haven't made those yet myself. Or maybe I did. I can't remember. Now I'm trying to remember what cookbook they were in. LOL.

    Made this last night, the sauce was very good but I didn't care for the pork. Maybe I'm spoiled, I usually have ribs or sirloin chops and everything else just seems so dry and/or tough. I think this sauce would very good with chicken wings or even BS thighs.

    Yea, me! I settled on a final recipe for WW chili and remembered to write it down after making it this time. The original cost 6 points, but my adjustments resulted in a 4-point recipe! Nice! Now I can add a slice of American cheese in it when I get bored. I love cheese in my chili. I guess it's not exactly a new recipe but I'll claim it anyway. The new recipe makes eight servings instead of six, too, so that's a bonus.

    I mixed up Italian salad dressing from a cook book. Tonight I'll make a pumpkin pie and toss in some coconut to use it up.

    I made these last night, very easy and will make again. I can see using different fillings, like sloppy joes or pulled pork.

    Yeah, you can put almost anything in there. I have done LO chicken pot pie, roast beef, corned beef + veggies, bbq, chinese pork, and ground lamb with spices. And after they are baked they can be frozen.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    I made Asian ribs last night in the Crock. Man, those are good!

    Sweet and Spicy Asian Short Ribs
    6 servings, 5 Smart Points per serving

    1 1⁄2 pound(s) uncooked boneless pork ribs
    1⁄2 tsp black pepper
    1 1⁄2cup(s) canned or fresh mushrooms
    4 fl oz water
    3 Tbsp Sriracha hot sauce or to taste
    1⁄4 cup(s) unpacked brown sugar
    1⁄4 cup(s) soy sauce
    1⁄4 cup(s) rice wine vinegar
    1 Tbsp garlic paste
    2 tsp ginger paste

    Sprinkle ribs with pepper and brown in frying pan on all sides. Place ribs in Crock-Pot. Add drained mushrooms. If using fresh mushrooms, brown first in pan meat was browned in, then add to ribs. Combine remaining ingredients to make sauce and pour sauce over ribs and mushrooms. Cook on LOW eight hours. Ladle 1/6 of sauce and mushrooms over 1/6 of ribs and per serving. A 1/2 cup serving of cooked brown rice adds 3 Smart Points. I served this with brown rice and steamed broccoli.

    For tonight I made Philly Chicken Cheese Sandwiches. I can tell I have another winner there.

    Dang, I love good cookbooks!
