I have decided to create 10 complete meals for my menu and I need fourmore. Can you look over my menu and add a meal that you regularly make that is a good Weight Watchers meal to complete my system. If you want any of my recipes just ask. We are two grown ups who live in the city and eat most stuff.

I like my easy chicken hollendaise. Mix 1 cup FF chicken broth w/ an envelope of hollendaise sauce mix. Pour it over 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Cook in crock pot 4-6 hours on low or until chicken is done. Then melt 1 8oz pkg. ff cream cheese and mix until blended. Serve over noodles or green beans.
You can also make on top of the stove, or put in the oven and bake at 325 until done 1-2 hours. Very, very good

How about a grd turkey or chicken or extra low fat grd beef meatloaf. Oven baked veggies (potatoes, onions, carrots, red peppers). Baked apple crisp. It all cooks in the oven. Start the meatloaf about a 1/2 hour before the veggies and the dessert.

The points will depend on your serving size and what ingredients you use. Use the listing at the back of the first week book to figure them out. For example a pound of grd white meat turkey has about 16 points if you add zero point seasonings and maybe an egg (2 points) 1/6 of the finished loaf would be 3 points. One potato (3)a few carrots some red pepper and onion drizzled with a T of olive oil (3), seasoning would work out to 3 points for 1/2. You get the idea. It takes some time to figure it out but it will give you a better understanding of what is and isn't worth the points.

1 1/2 pound cooked shrimp, medium-sized (peeled and deveined)
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tsp ginger root, fresh, chopped

2 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp apple juice
1 1/2 tsp table salt
Place shrimp in a single layer in 9 X 13-inch pan.
Heat soy sauce in a small saucepan until boiling. Stir in ginger; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until most of the liquid is evaporated, about 5 minutes. Stir in vinegar, sugar, apple juice and salt. Pour mixture over shrimp; cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Arrange shrimp on a serving platter, drizzle with any remaining marinade and serve with toothpicks. Yields about 4 shrimp per serving.

Dinner last night, so simple: pork chops, covered with sliced onions and RF cream of mushroom. Bake 375 for about 40 minutes (I cover w/ foil for first half. We also had boiled red potatoes, cut in large chunks and lightly glazed w/ butter and salt. Oh, and tossed some frozen & fresh veggies in crockpot. yum. Chops are about 4 - 5 points, depending on size of chop.

Chicken Broccoli Skillet
1 10 oz frozen cut broccoli
2 8 oz whole chicken breasts, skinned, split, boned and cut into 1/2 inch wide strips (cut while partially frozen; it's easier)
