Ready for Breakfast!

I've been trying to find the time for 2 weekends now to make breakfast on the weekend for the upcoming week.
This week I finally got it done!
I revised the Blueberry Oatmeal Bake recipe, substituting Splenda for brown sugar and skim milk in place of the whole or 2% milk I've used before. I also added 2/3 cup Craisins in with the 1 cup of Blueberries.
Call the recipe enough for 8 servings and each serving comes in at 3 weight watcher points. It looks pretty good. Hopefully it's tasty as well.
It looks like a small serving as I separated it out into 8 portions tonight, but this stuff was pretty filling. I think it will be nice to have a little something that's easy to start off the morning.
I also made lunch for tomorrow. Chicken and some spinach salad and we'll each take a little raspberry lime vinaigrette to add at lunchtime. Looks like a yummy lunch! We may end up having this twice.
I have a tiny little meal plan to get me started on the week! YAY! I'll update as I plan or as I eat, however it plays out!
I also have all the stuff except Fresh Ginger for Moo Shu Chicken, which is one of my favorite things to get from Chinese takeout. I haven't had it in forever, so I'm hoping the WW recipe is good. (New Complete Cookbook, page 168.) I'll let you know!

Very cool! I've been messing with the blueberry oatmeal recipe too! I haven't actually made it yet though. I keep forgetting to buy oatmeal.
You could add some fresh fruit to your breakfast if it isn't filling enough. Some strawberries or grapes would be zero added points.
I haven't heard a review of the Turkey burgers yet...did you hate them? LOL

Trish~ The serving felt just right this morning. Felt a little weird serving to Dennis. I told him, "And just enough breakfast to get your metabolism jump started for the day." He had no complaints and really liked the cranberries in it.
Amy was thinking that the next time she makes she's leaving the fruit out prior to baking and just use fresh strawberries when it is served.
I just love this recipe. Very versatile. What are you going to do?
Nope haven't bought Turkey Burger yet... still in the plans to try though. Maybe I'll grab some of that while I'm picking up fresh ginger.

Aaak! My Bok Choy did not look so good tonight, then the Napa Cabbage did not shred well with my kitchen aid mixer attachment for shredding. ix-Nay on the Mu Shu Chicken!
I'm not happy, but I'll get over it.

The big plunge...
