Did you try the Mexicano Stuffed Peppers from last week? They are so delicious. I like them better than traditional stuffed peppers because they use ground turkey breast instead of greasy ground beef. I wish jalapenos came in a big size because I would love to stuff them with the spicy ground turkey breast mixture. If you did not get the recipe for the peppers, it is right here. Also, if you have not tried the 2 ingredient dough recipe yet, you must try it soon. This past weekend, I prepped and baked lots of meat hand pies. Since summer is coming, I will not use the oven as much. And, these hand pies can be defrosted overnight and put in the microwave for a few seconds. So excellent and filling too.
There will be quite a few new recipes for this week’s menu. One fabulous recipe that is perfect for summer is a Cucumber Honeydew Feta Salad. Can you say yum? It is so crisp and filling too. Also included is this week’s downloadable grocery list for everything on this week’s menu. It’s at the bottom of this post. So let’s get started and see what is cooking this week of Week 19 – Weight Watchers Freestyle Diet Plan Menu – Week of 5/7/18.
