New Recipe Update & Menu Plan Monday 01/17/2011

The new recipe review will be easy this week..

We didn't get to try a new recipe.

Last week the stomach flu swept through our house half our house.

I, the cook, was a victim.

So there was a whole lot of non cooking going on, with the exception of the turkey. It had to be cooked since it was thawed. Fortunately, I was able to enjoy a little of it by the end of the week.

The line up this week is

Monday: Left over chicken. my mom gave me a whole roasted chicken yesterday, it was really good!

Tuesday: Roast beef w/ potatoes & carrots. Hoping to use leftovers to make some vegetable beef soap for lunch the next day!!!

Wednesday - Grilled pork steaks

Thursday - Turkey burgers

Friday - Spaghetti made with whole wheat pasta

Saturday - Leftovers

Sunday - Dinner at Mom's!

The new recipe this week is a dessert that I found in my Weight Watchers magazine. They are low calorie and gluten free.

Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat oven to 350
Line 3 large baking sheets with parchment paper

1 c. almond flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
2 tbsp canola oil
2 tbsp amber agave nectar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 c bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 c sliced almonds

Mix almond flour, baking soda & salt in medium bowl.
Whisk canola oil, amber agave nectar & vanilla in small bowl
Stir agave mixture into almond flour mixture until well blended.
Stir in chocolate chips & almonds.
Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto each baking sheet, 2 inches apart.
Bake 1 sheet of cookies until golden, 7-8 minutes.
Let cool on sheet rak 5 minutes.
Transfer cookies to rack & let cool completely.

1 cookie has 41 calories or for those doing Weight Watchers they are 1 point.
