Duchess of York Tea Sandwiches - 3 or 4 Points

Recipe By :Richard Simmons
Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Sandwiches


Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 egg -- hard-cooked and peeled
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1 tablespoon imitation mayonnaise
salt and pepper
2 slices low calorie wheat bread -- crusts removed
2 asparagus spears -- steamed

This sandwich almost looks like sushi. The flavor combination heres is a
delightful surprise. The bonus is that when you use extra-thin bread, two
slices counts as just 1 bread card.

1. In small bowl, mash egg with fork and add curry powder, mayonnaise
and salt and pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly.

2. Divide equally over both slices of bread.

3. Arrange asparagus spears at edge of each slice and roll up to enclose
filling.

4. Wrap rolls in plastic and chill for an hour or so.

5. Using a very sharp knife, cut each roll into 4 mini rolls. Makes 1
serving.

Hi.

I have a teenager that I pack a lunch for everyday, she too is on WW. I pack her a sandwich on low point bread with an once of cheese,and lettuce, tomato and cucumbers on the side- not to get the sandwich soggy. I also send her with a yogurt some carrots even the 0 point cabbage soup in a thermos. She never took lunch to high school but now that she's changing her eating habits she has no problem taking a brown bag - sometimes it's a shopping bag. I even send her with a cesear salad. I agree with everyone, an electric kettle is a great investment. My other daughter in collage has one and she heats water for soups, miso soup at 0 points is also availabe.
Take the time to plan because you're worth it.

I brown bag every day. My current favorite lunch is the following: 2 triangles of Laughing Cow Light Cheese (1 pt. each), 10 Melba Snack Crackers (2 pts.), baby carrots
or cut up peppers or cut up zuccini (or a combination) (0 pts.) and fruit (1 pt.). Often I take a large apple or orange and have half at lunch and half as a snack later in the afternoon. Also a 16 oz glass of water. This fills me up, and the combination of creamy cheese, crunchy crackers and veggies and fruit appeals to me. All for 5 points! Because I have a low point breakfast too, this saves points for dinner with my husband and for an evening snack, which I KNOW I will want.

I take soup and half a sandwich with some fruit and a bottle of water and eat it in my car at school so I can listen to the radio. If you go to Cookinglight.com, look for Garden Grilled Cheese. It's really, really good, and with a cup of hot soup is great for the cold days when a sandiwich and an apple aren't going to do anything.
