Two weeknight meals

Broiled Snapper with Citrus-Soy Sweet Potatoes & Sesame Spinach
Another year, another Martha Stewart cookbook (thanks Mom!).  As I think most know, I'm a big fan of Martha's - she's not as groundbreaking as Julia, but she's done just as good of a job (if not more so) trying to raise the culinary skills of the uninitiated.  I like the way this book is put together - seasonal menus!

This meal was an easy one, admittedly, with little active prep.  The "hardest" part was probably the timing - making sure that the spinach and the snapper were finished at the same time.  For those of you keeping track at home, this meal was 8 points.  The best part of this dish was the radishes - normally I am not a fan, but the flavor and texture worked rather well.

Beef Rolls with Spring Salad

A piece of thinly sliced top round, rolled around a slice of pepper jack cheese, and sauteed onions and peppers - what's not to like here?  Combined with a salad (half spring mix, half baby spinach) with some olive oil and sherry vinegar, and Steph and I enjoyed a light dinner for 6 points.

I'm planning on trying to write more about my everyday eating, to outline mine and Steph's goals of eating a bit healthier.  Plus, it'll let me take more pictures and try to use my current camera a bit more effectively.

Silly boy! You neglected to formally announce the fact that we are on Weight Watchers. Hence, the point counts.

That's right. We're pigs who can't control our eating on our own, so we're turning to the experts for help.
