The Weight Watchers mix and match book is excellent. Two.5 good recipes out of two.5 so far. I’ve made the marinade for tomorrow’s meal, and it’s DELICIOUS. The marinade is honey / red wine / dijon mustard mix, and the meat is suffusing in it in the fridge. So that’s 0.5 / 0.5. I’ll let you know what it’s like when I roast them tomorrow.
The pork filets in five spice and hoisin sauce on top of jasmine rice with green stuff is extremely delicious. It’s just like the grilled sliced pork I have at Vietnamese restaurants. It’s easy to make and was ready to eat in 10 minutes. Two thumbs up.
Down side is that the sauce (involving a reduction of lemon juice and hoisin sauce) does get a bit sloppy when one is enthusiastically stirring to avoid sticky brown mess on the bottom of the pan.
So there’s this bottle of red that I had to open for the sauce. It’s going down a treat. How many points is 2/3rds of a bottle? Good thing that my total points for today = 7 + 4 + 6 = 17. I hope that 2/3rds of a bottle is like 10 points.
And Jacques, my food bill went up. But it’s not quite the same – I’m shopping for two instead of buying for one. But the quality of the food I’m eating is also up.
