What will You Serve..

Since the Oscar's will be airing this Sunday, I thought I would give you some great suggestions of  food to serve for your Oscar party.  Even if you are not hosting a party or going to a party you can still serve this to you and or your family.  I will be making these on Sunday and will post pictures later.

Cucumber "Sandwiches" 0 PointsPlus
1 cucumber sliced
Salt and pepper
Fage Greek yogurt (1 cup equals 3 PointsPlus)
Sliced roasted red peppers

Salt and pepper your cucumber slices, put a 1/2 teaspoon of yogurt on each cucumber and top with a slice of roasted red pepper. 

You would basically have to consume 96 slices to equal 1 cup of yogurt.

Baby Spinach with sliced Strawberries and toasted Almond Slices 2 PointsPlus

1/3 cup toasted sliced almonds
1 cup sliced strawberries
2 tablespoons TJ's low fat Parmesan Ranch Dressing

Veggie Medley 1 PointsPlus
1 red pepper, sliced
1 yellow pepper, sliced
1 small zucchini cut into bite size pieces
1 red onion, sliced
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
pepper to taste
dried basil to taste

Saute peppers and zucchini until tender, about 10-15 minutes.  Meanwhile, saute the onion, garlic, and seasonings in the vinegar.  Stir the cooked veggies into the vinegar mixture until thoroughly coated.

Turkey and Chicken Meatloaf 7 PointsPlus per serving (yields 10 servings)

1 lb ground turkey
1 lb ground chicken
3 eggs
1/4 cup skim milk
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
2 cups seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 medium onion
1 teaspoon garlic powder
non-stick spray

Preheat over to 350.  Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl.  Use a large loaf pan  that's been sprayed with non-stick spray.. Bake for about a hour.

No Bake Cheese Cake  2PointsPlus per serving (yields 20 servings)

Low fat graham crackers
8 oz. fat free cream cheese (softened)
1 cup cold skim milk
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 small box instant vanilla pudding (sugar free)
 8 oz. fat free Cool Whip
1 can lite cherry pie filling (or any flavor)

Line the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan with whole graham crackers. Beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add milk and lemon juice to the cream cheese and beat until smooth. Stir in pudding mix, then fold in Cool Whip. Spread 1/2 of cream cheese mixture over graham crackers. Repeat with another layer of graham crackers and cream cheese mixture. Spread pie filling over top. Refrigerate overnight for graham crackers to soften.

In the end, if you have one serving of each recipe listed, your total PointsPlus will be 12.

Which movie do you think will win Best Picture? Black Swan, 127 Hours, Social Network, The Kings Speech?

I haven't seen any of these movies, so your guess is as good as mine! :)
