Balsamic Honey Pulled Pork Sliders

Finals are right around the corner which means more slow cooker dinners.  This pulled pork sandwich is a great meal after a study-filled day.  There is only a little bit of prep work, and the slow cooker does the rest!  Matt loved this meal so much that he ate two pork-stuffed sandwiches.  That’s my piggie!  For 11 Weight Watcher points per sandwich, it’s so filling that it’s worth every point!

Peeta Pockets

I have always been a sandwich lover. From peanut butter and jelly to my “world famous” turkey, avocado, tomato stacked sandwich, I can always go for a sandwich.  This chicken pita has a zesty, fresh taste that is perfect for lunch or dinner.  With all the hype around the Hunger Games, I named this dish after my favorite character Peeta Mellark.

Key Lime Grilled Chicken Kabobs

I woke up this morning and realized I only have one month left until I graduate from law school.  And that means a summer of studying for the bar.  And if I’m gonna stay sane, there is going to have to be lots of cook outs, happy hours, and patio drinking (I’m talking to you Mel Bakker!)

I’m too excited to wait for warm weather so I broke out some new grilling recipes.  Tonight I made Key Lime Grilled Chicken Kabobs for only 5 Weight Watcher’s Plus Points.

Asian Glazed Chicken

A college tradition at La Crosse was Wednesday night wings.  Every Wednesday, you and all your friends would walk down to 3rd street to get 10 cent wings and dollar PBRs.  It was a fun tradition that Matt really misses now that he’s a “grown up” who lives a city where Wednesday wings means 75 cents a wing.  Not much of a deal.  So I decided we could make our own Wednesday night wings.  Only this time, they would be healthier.  Now that I am in the middle of p90x, I really can’t be eating deep fried wings.  I found this great recipe from SkinnyTaste that is amazing.  It’s a mixture between our Wednesday wings and Chinese food.  And the best part is it is healthier than both!  It is a bit saltier so you will want to keep your portion small. (unless you are Matt who devoured that entire plate!)

Spaghetti with Tomatoes, Olives, and Feta.

Now that it’s Lent, I have been trying to find recipes without meat for Matt and me to eat on Fridays.  As much as I enjoy a good fish fry, Matt and I gave up going out to eat for Lent, so we are stuck cooking our own sans-meat meals.  I have been resisting the temptation to toss some frozen fish sticks into the oven.  Instead, I made this fun pasta dish that doesn’t need sauce.
