Roast Beef Sandwich

This recipe is from Weight Watchers Five Ingredient 15 Minute Recipes on news stands now. It was so good and so quick and easy. I didn’t change it much I just used more horseradish in my sauce and used the sandwich thins which lowered the point value. It was spicy the way I made it and that is just the way I like it. I served it with a yummy cucumber and tomato salad and a pickle.

Horseradish Sauce

1/4 cup Best Foods Light Mayo

1. Combine all the ingredients and mix well.

Roast Beef Sandwich

1 Serving
3 Points/Serving

1 Oroweat sandwich thin (If you haven’t tried these you must)
3 oz thin sliced roast beef
1 tsp horseradish sauce
2 tsp good BBQ sauce

1. Toast the sandwich thin.
2. Pile the roast beef on top and microwave for 20 seconds.
3. Spread the horseradish sauce and BBQ sauce on the bread and enjoy.

The salad was equally as simple and can be made in advance so dinner is ready in a flash when you get home. When I teach till 7:30 a fast dinner is a must.

I am watching Boy Meets Grill and I am totaly inspired to make a Cevechi. Does anyone know a great recipe? Or have you ever tried to make it?

Yummy Steak Salad

Steak Salad

I went back to my old standby Cooking Light magazine for inspiration tonight. We adapted the Miso Glazed Steak salad to fit us. This was a great summer meal! It was the perfect blend of spicy and refreshing.

Hayley came over and we did week 5 day 2 before hand. When we got in we were ready to eat and this was great because it came together super fast and David was grilling while I showered. I had to adjust the ingredients a little to make it appropriate for the grill and I didn’t have any white miso so I just used what was on hand.

Hayley suggested we try the recipe with fish. I was like, “shrimp, shrimp, shrimp” but then David said, “What about seared tuna?” Wow, genius!

This is the world’s best meatloaf!!! I am a fan of the meatloaf.
I adore beef and Weight Watchers has caused me to cut way back. So imagine my glee when I found this 4 point recipe for meatloaf that included real beef. I did not have all of the meat that the recipe called for so I reduced the amount in the recipe builder and the point value went down!!! How great is Weight Watchers Online. My favorite Mother-in-law tried this recipe and she doesn’t even like meatloaf and she enjoyed it.

Well, here it is my Green Chili Meatloaf recipe adapted from the WW site.
