I have been doing weight watchers for over a year now, I've lost 25 pounds. But quite honestly I am getting burnt out on the same old meals every week. I try to switch it up, but need some inspiration. I love crockpot recipes. But will try anything! Anybody have some points plus recipes they would be willing to share?

Here is one we love!

Crock pot ham and potato soup


7 c. diced potatoes (about 4 medium)
1 c. diced onion (about 1 medium)
1 large carrot, chopped
2 c. ham, diced
5. c. hot water
1 Knorr Chicken Bullion cube (extra large size that
makes 1 quart broth or 4 small cubes that make 1 cup each)
1 c. 2% milk
1/2 c. sour cream
Salt and Pepper to taste

Add diced potatoes, onion, carrot, and ham to a crock pot. Dissolve chicken bullion in 5 cups hot water, then add this to the crock pot also. Cook on low 7 hours, or high 3 hours. Then add milk and sour cream. Stir and cook an additional 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Makes twelve 1-cup servings.

If you'd like a thicker soup, just before adding milk and sour cream, remove 2-3 cups of the potatoes and slightly mash, then return the mashed mixture to the crock pot.

Makes 12 Servings (About 1 Cup Per Serving)

Check out! She posts the points on every recipe.

Dashing Dish is also great and has points values calculated. It's $5 a month though.

One of my favorites is in their website. It's squash & orzo. Butternut squash is what it calls for I think. We have used other types also. But our favorite add in is kale. Chop it, especially the stems, sautee in water & thin sliced garlic & mix in. Delish!
