Hungry Girl Weekend #3
Tonight, we decided to make it a Manwich night–Hungry Girl style. We picked three recipes – Sloppy Janes, Zesty Italian Pita Chips, and Freezy-cool whoopie pie.
We made our grocery list and set out to get everything we needed. We specifically went to Vons because we needed VitaTops (Muffin Tops) and their website said they carried them. No one there had ever heard of them. So then we went off to Whole Foods–they had never heard of them either. So it looks like we are going to have to order these from the VitaTops website and save the recipe for another time. Thankfully we found everything else that we needed for the other two recipes.
Sloppy Janes (Hungry Girl, Pg. 130, 271 calories) – Diana and I both agreed that we highly recommend this recipe. It is very easy to make. We do suggest that you use the whole can of the no-salt-added tomato sauce. It’s weird to just leave a small amount in the can. We didn’t want to let it go to waste. We also suggest adding a little chili powder to give it a little more flavor. Overall, it’s a great recipe that serves five so you can freeze if you are single like me, or get the whole family to eat it if you share a home with someone besides your cat.
Zesty Italian Pita Chips (Hungry Girl 200 under 200, Pg. 125, 163 calories, 3 weight watchers points) – This was the perfect subsitute for Potato Chips to go with our Sloppy Janes. Our suggestion would be to make a little more of the spread or dip the pitas in salsa. We dipped them in our leftover tomato sauce and that just didn’t do the trick. We agreed, along with Diana’s husband, that we should try these with some salsa. This is definitely something that is easy to make and would be good to have at a gathering of sorts.
