Nice day doing nothing.. Lovely dinner!!

Today I have done nothing except pop to the shop and back and it has been lovely just chilling indoors watching some tv and browsing the web for recipes, I always find myself doing this when I have time on my hands.. I have about 200 bookmarked blogs and recipe websites on my laptop! In fact whilst browsing this is where I found my dinner for tonight, as I still do not have my cooker connected I thought I would search for some microwave recipes which were suitable for weightwatchers and found one that is perfect for me as it uses tortilla wraps… which as everyone who reads my blog will have worked out by now that I am slightly addicted to 😉  Recipe is here at  http://www.weightwatchers.com/util/art/index_art.aspx?tabnum=1&art_id=78521&sc=3022

It’s called a Quesadilla.. Ooohhh exotic I hear you say! I changed the recipe slightly to my tastes and to make it a bit more filling here’s the recipe I made:

Ingredients:
2 weightwatchers tortilla wraps 5pp
25g low low red pepper and chilli cheese spread 1pp
1 mini pepper sliced 0pp
1 medium mushroom sliced 0pp
45g hot tomato salsa 0pp
50g Bernard matthews tikka turkey 1pp
25g Co-op reduced fat grated cheddar 2pp
 
Method:
Spread 1 wrap with the low low cheese spread, then the other with the salsa. Add the sliced vegetables and turkey too the one with the salsa on and then add the grated cheese last, season to taste then place the other tortilla on top of it and microwave for 1 minute on high. Voila a lovely filling Quesadilla in minimal amount of time and only 9pp! 
 
So my menu today was: 
 
Breakfast: A banana and frozen mixed berry smoothie made with 200ml skimmed milk 2pp, Topped with a sprinkling of hot chocolate 0pp.
 
Lunch: weightwatchers tortilla wrap 3pp, 50g Quorn ham style slices 2pp, 1 dairy lea light cheese triangle 1pp,  Mini pepper sliced 0pp, 15g Light salad cream 1pp. 
 
Dinner: Home made Quesadilla 9pp (Recipe above)
With the cheese spread on 1, Salsa on the other.With everything on, ready to top with other tortilla.
 
Snacks: Tesco caramella sundae 4pp
 Tesco caramella sundae nice for a low pp treat 4pp
So total used 22/26pp 
 
Weigh in tomorrow am expecting a gain or a stay the same at least.. I have done nothing different this week apart from use my weeklies later in the week and do more exercise , which you would think was a good thing :/ Anyhow the scales have not been looking kind the last few days but this is something of a routine for me I seem to have a couple of good losses, then either a sts/gain so I am not too worried I know I have eaten well and sometimes the body just does thing like this to us! Good luck to everyone on a new week! Much love Gems 😀

    • No problem, I rang some gas men for quotes and they said between £60-80!! I don’t have that sort of money atm, so it will be more microwave recipes to come lol 🙂

  1. Hmmm I’m planning my menu for next week and thought I’d add the quesadilla to the recipe builder – and although the pps of the individual ingredients add up to 9pp – it’s saying that it’s 11pp per serving! Says it’s because the NV of the recipe is calculated before the pp. Hmmm think I’ll just add the ingredients individually!

    • Hmm that’s really odd, I didn’t even try it in the recipe builder.. Just entered everything individual as you said. Are you using exactly the same ingredients? If not it could be one of the ones your using has higher pps?? Xx

  2. Just thought I’d let you know that I’ve just had the Quesadilla – and it was delicious! My son also wanted it too and he also thought it was delicious, think it’s going to be a bit of a favourite in our house – so thank you for sharing 🙂
