Chicken Meatballs – 1 Weight Watchers Smartpoint Each

Standard

Well, hello my friends.. can we just talk about how fast the summer has gone.  I wished for cooler weather when it was hot and humid and here is it and it’s making me realize that another summer is gone and in the books. I don’t want to put a jacket on. I want to walk around town in my t-shirt still.  Ah, those are the days when you can dash out of your house without grabbing a jacket… right?

OK OK.. so not all is lost when you have some comfort food to make.. That’s why I’m here.. stay with me.

I’ve just uploaded a new video for making Chicken Meatballs.  I started getting into replacing all of my ground beef recipes with ground chicken. Not sure when that started, but it was years ago.  I don’t particularly like the taste of ground turkey (anyone with me on that), unless I mix with ground chicken or there are a lot of spices and other tastes in it.  I digress.

These meatballs, simmering in a sauce for hours is the key to comfort food, I think.  Of course, then my house smells like meatballs for two days. LOL

I got 28 meatballs from this recipe and each one is only 1 Weight Watchers Smartpoint each.  C’mon now.. it’s true.

Here the new video:

 

You can, of course, change up your ingredients with different veggies, bread or cheese.. it’s your world.  I would highly recommend cooking the veggies first.. this is what gives them a sweet taste. Would you do that for me, please??

Let me know what you think and if you give them a try and let me know.  I’m all about simple.

Hearing from you means the world to me.  Please share, subscribe and like.

Happy Fall

Cauliflower “Potato” Salad

Standard

Well, my friends, I know it took me weeks to get you this “potato” salad video. You still love me?  Thank you. Wait, you did say yes, didn’t you?

OK, let’s talk about that it’s the end of August. It happens every year and I’ll always still be denial that summer goes by too fast.  You can already feel the coolness in the evenings. That’s ok.. I think we have some real heat coming at us this week anyway.

Raise your hand if you love potato salad. OK.  Raise your hand if you love cauliflower. OK then.  Well, my friends, this video is for you (pretending you all raised your hands for both. LOL).

You can’t go wrong with this salad. It’s fast, easy and comes together like that (snapping fingers).

It doesn’t need a lot of explanation; it’s pretty easy to follow and you or your guests will love it.  How about for Labor Day?  Maybe going to a party or something. It’s perfect.

Please give it a try and let me know how it comes out. I know it will be a NO FAIL. I promise.

Thank you for sticking by me and all the love you send my way.  It’s appreciated more than you know.

As the “Terminator” said.. “I’ll be back”. Am I aging myself here?

Love and hugs

Judy

Please share my social media sites with friends. How fun to all be together.

Cauliflower “Potato” Salad (with WW Smartpoints)

Standard
Cauliflower “Potato” Salad (with WW Smartpoints)

Happy Summer, friends!!!!  I hope you are all enjoying your summertime and staying healthy and safe. So far so good over here.  The weather has been quite nice.  We took a trip to Lake Tahoe a couple of weeks ago and was such a nice break.  Beauty, is the word I would describe Tahoe. Just a beautiful place to hike, bike and enjoy water activities.

Here are just a few of the 100’s of pictures I took.  I told my husband, I just can’t stop taking pictures.  Seriously, it was that beautiful. I even saw a bear’s butt.  Don’t get that confused with a bare butt now. LOL

 

Ok, so moving on from vacations to food.. now, that’s more like it. Chop chop, Judy. Speaking of “chopping”….

Of course you know all the rage is about cauliflower.  I love cauliflower and grew up on it. Mostly, my mom would roast it in the oven.. plain, salt, that’s it.  There is a lot you can do with this beautiful white vegetable.  Check out my YouTube channel where I make a dish called “Zahra” (meaning flower).  CLICK HERE to watch it.

I’ve made you wait long enough.

I made this cauliflower salad for my family and then again for a July 4th party. This is so good.. the crunch, the “potato salad”, the color. Just yum.

Makes approximately 10 servings.  You can add even more veggies to make it bigger.  Each serving is 1 Weight Watcher Smartpoint (and that’s for the mayo).

Ingredients:
1 large head of STEAMED cauliflower, cut into bite size florets
3 hard boiled eggs
1/2 cup chopped dill pickles
1/3 cup chopped red pepper
1/2 cup chopped asparagus
1/2 cup of corn
1/3 cup of chopped red onion
1/3 cup chopped curly parsley
3/4 cup light mayonnaise (I like Miracle Whip) (7 smartpoints)
1-2 T of lemon juice.
Salt, pepper, paprika or any herbs or spices of your choice. I love that the paprika gives it a little orange color.

Now, you know this your world and you can put what you want in this salad for other veggies, but this is what I did.

Steam your cauliflower florets. I think it’s best to steam as they won’t get water logged.  I steamed for about 15 minutes.  Steam it to the texture you like.  I didn’t want them too raw, but not soft either…. so like baby bear.. “just right”.

Once the florets are steamed through, let cool.  While cooling, chop up your other vegetables.

Look how pretty.

The dressing is fairly simple. I’m all about simple, folks.

Mix the mayo with your herbs and spices you choose and the lemon juice or you could use apple cider vinegar as another option20180704_174343

Once your cauliflower is cooled, add it to the bowl and mix it with the dressing.

Boom!! Done!!  Cover and let sit for a few hours or overnight in the fridge… or as they used to say in the old days, “ice box”.

Those eggs make all the difference if you ask me. So many options to add to this, really.

Give it a try and be the talk of the town.. or the party.. or your own family.. or yourself. 

Thanks for stopping by and checking out the blog, once again.  You are all the best in my book. I do have a book.

Love your comments and let me know if you try it.

Sito’s Kitchen – Making Maldoum

Standard

Hey everyone…  I just uploaded a new video with my mom in an episode of “Sito’s Kitchen”.  Today, we are making “Maldoum”, an eggplant dish.  So good.  You could certainly leave out the meat to make it vegetarian.

I hope you enjoy and I’ll let the video speak for itself.

 

Thanks for the love and support of my blog and YouTube channel.  Your comments and emails are so important to me.  To mom, too.
