Dinner mystery for tonight is solved.... I am going to make those Asian Wraps listed above. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Glad this thread helped. I had the same dilemma yesterday and went with the Cheeseburger and Fry casserole.

New recipe!! I am going to make it next week but I'm going to cut everything in half and just make 2 servings. I'm also going to use imitation crab since that is what I have in the freezer already.
Crabmeat Salad in a Cantaloupe Bowl
Weight Watchers Recipe
Course: main meals
PointsPlus™ Value: 8
Preparation Time: 20 min
Cooking Time: 0 min
Level of Difficulty: Easy
This succulent crabmeat salad is neatly served in an edible bowl. The sweet melon provides a lovely complement to the slightly-spiced crab mixture.
1/2 cup(s) reduced-calorie mayonnaise
2 medium scallion(s), finely chopped
2 Tbsp ketchup
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp sweet red pepper(s), minced or finely chopped
1 Tbsp onion(s), minced or finely chopped
1 Tbsp parsley, fresh, minced or finely chopped
1 Tbsp sweet pickle relish
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
1 pound(s) lump crabmeat, fresh, picked over to remove any shells
2 small cantaloupe, halved and seeded
1 Tbsp chives, fresh, finely chopped
Place mayonnaise, scallions, ketchup, lemon juice, red pepper, onion, parsley, relish, mustard and salt in a blender or food processor; blend until smooth (add a touch of water to obtain a thinner dressing consistency, if desired).
Put crabmeat in a medium bowl and toss with mayonnaise mixture (add as much or as little as desired).
Slice a sliver off the bottom of each melon half so it will sit flat on a plate; spoon about 1 cup of crabmeat salad into each half, garnish with chives and serve. Yields half a filled melon per serving.
Shrimp or lobster can easily be substituted for the crabmeat if preferred.
Also, in the reviews someone subbed fat free cream cheese instead of the mayo to cut the calories a little more.

I have a new recipe for you but I need to get my notes. I combined 2 recipes into one and made a low fat Creamed Kale & Spinach side dish this week. Very yummy.
I also made Hungry Girl's BBQ Chicken and Apple slow cooked meal and I'd give it a 3 out of 5. I think I'm just not in the mood for mushy slow cooked food right now.

I joined last month and have found so many great dinner recipes!

Ok. Here is creamed spinach/kale/other greens
6 cups greens (preferably cooked but if not just boil for 5ish minutes) or just use a frozen box or two. Squeeze out as much water as possible.
Saute minced garlic and onions (optional)
add in greens and saute another minute or two
add in 2/3 cup skim milk & 2 tsp flour
add in 2oz of cream cheese
once melted take off the burner and add in 1/4 c parmesean cheese.
It is delicious and a great way to use up week old spinach.
