Chili Cheese Dogs

This was dinner last night...

Made with these...

Smart dogs are a great source of protein! For one dog, there is 45 calories, 0 fat, and 8 grams of protein. They are made with soy protein. As far as taste goes, not bad. The texture is like a hot dog. There is a little after taste, but when topped a little chili and cheese it was hard to tell. My husband really liked them.

A Classic Chicken and Pork hot dog runs about 150 calories and only 4 grams of protein.

Baked Custard

Baked Custard

1 egg
1 cup of milk
2 Tbsp Splenda

Mix everything together until smooth. Pour mixture into your ramekins and dust with nutmeg or cinnamon. Place ramekins into a glass baking dish and then fill half way with water. Bake around 1 hour and 15 minutes at 300 degrees. Test with knife to make sure it runs clean.

Makes 2- 1/2 cup servings or 2 4oz ramekins at 94 calories and 6.5 grams of protein.

If served with a 1/4 cup of halved strawberries , it becomes 105 calories and 7 grams protein.

Quick and Easy

I made this...

Using this...

The turkey sausage was 90 calories and 9 grams of protein for 2 oz.

The beans were 110 calories and 5 grams for 1/2 cup serving.

I ate 4 oz of sausage and 1/2 cup of beans for 290 calories and 23 grams of protein.

And it only took 5 mins to cook...

The cherries on my tree are starting to turn red!
I love cherry season, especially here in the Northwest.
Did you know...there are only 54 calories in a cup of cherries including the pits and stems?

Last Night's Dinner

Last night's dinner was Fabulous and it only took 5 minutes to cook. I microwaved a bag of seasoned Steamable Vegetables (40 calories for 1 cup). Then I pan fried with cooking spray some precooked ham steaks (70 calories, 11g protein for 1 slice). I whipped up some instant mashed potatoes for the rest of the family. And it was perfect. It was fast, easy, band-friendly, low calorie and it tasted really good. My kids ate so much! I think it was the mashed potatoes.... they don't get those very often.
