Made these healthy Egg Stackers for breakfast yesterday.  It's like a much tastier version of a McMuffin, I suppose! Cheesy http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=419812.0

Also made stuffed peppers in the slow cooker yesterday for dinner.  I'll get them posted this weekend!  Yum.

What's everyone been cookin' up this week?

We had these veggie pot pies for dinner tonight...

I also made these veggie lasagna rolls from Cooking Light this week...
http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/lasagna-rolls-with-roasted-red-pepper-sauce-10000000604779/

Both were tasty and low in calories Smiley!!

As of this morning, I've lost about half the weight I'm hoping to drop. The older I get, the harder it is for these sticky pounds to come off!! I'm happy to be making progress though and I'm feeling really good, which is what matters.

Has anyone tried Miracle Noodles?

I've had konnyaku before from Asian groceries.  It didn't smell bad as far as I remember.  It comes like store bought tofu, in a small plastic container and liquid.  Maybe what you got was dried some how?  That would change the smell maybe.  Most of the ones I tried said that it was made of potato starch, though I think it's more of a type of sweet potato (which are what seems to be called yams these days and the orange ones are called sweet potatoes even though they are yams..)  But I don't remember it having any smell..or flavor Grin

What did you make with them, suereal? That sounds just like what I got. These are packed in water and they sort of look like a defrosted ice pack Smiley.

They have 0 calories and less than 1g of carbs per serving but I'm a bit skeptical Smiley.

I've heard you need to rinse them really, really well. I bought some once but wussed out and never ate them, just threw it away lol! They carry them at Safeway near me (or used to). I'd love to hear how they turn out, keep us updated! Smiley

Mine were like an udon noodle mostly.  We would use them for stir fry, and in soups.  My HUb is the cook, and he tends to just wing things, so no recipes.

I made these for our big family dinner night Wednesday.  I don't follow the measurements, but use the same ingredients, basically.  Added Liquid Aminos and Mrs. Dash to the filling, too http://www.budgetsavvydiva.com/2013/01/skinny-stuffed-shells-recipe/

I have that recipe on my list to try, sweets! Maybe I'll add it to my dinner plan for next week.

I gave the miracle noodles a go!

They smell like rotting fish when you first open them but I rinsed them in a strainer for ~20 seconds and that made them less stinky. I then boiled them for about 1 minute, removed them to a paper towel and patted dry, as their site recommends. Without any sauce, they taste like slimy air Smiley.

I sauted some garlic, ginger, carrots, green onions, red cabbage and sesame seeds and added that to the noodles. I tossed it all in a sauce I made from soy, white wine vinegar, a little hoisin and a squirt of sriracca.

It wasn't exactly the same as vermicelli noodles but a great substitute considering they have 0 calories! I think they would be good in other Asian recipes but I can't imagine cooking any Italian style pasta dishes with them.

*snort* slimy air *snort*.  You made me have a flash back LimR.  I remembered wondering if that was what slugs would be textured like when I first ate konnyacku.  Yeah, I never tried them with Italian fair.  I used to use them in TomYum (sweet {tamarind}and sour soup...Vietnam I think?) with Costco wild salmon patties and that was yummy Grin
