Weigh-In Tomorrow

I'm excited about it because I really feel like I had a great week. I've made a better effort of getting my 5 fruits/vegetables in everyday.

Tonight for dinner we are having:


1 medium green pepper, chopped
28 oz canned tomatoes (I buy the diced ones)
6 oz canned tomato paste
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 T canola oil
1 T dried parsley
1/2 t dried thyme
1 c Minute Rice (white)
1 pound cooked shrimp (peeled and deveined)

Combine everything but the shrimp in a crock pot. Cook on high 4-5 hours. Remove tails from shrimp if they have them. Add shrimp and cook until no longer pink, about 1 hour longer. Yield: 6 servings at 5 pointsplus each.

Spinach Corn Muffins

1 c cornmeal
1 c all-purpose flour
1/4 c packed brown sugar
2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1 egg
1 c fat-free milk
2 T canola oil
1 C fresh spinach, chopped
3/4 c shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese

In a large bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat the egg, milk and oil; stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in spinach and cheese.

Coat muffin cups with Pam; fill 2/3 full with batter. Bake at 400 for 18-22 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 2 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 1 dozen at 4 pointsplus each.
