Not the best of evenings, but certainly not as bad as the past few days prior to this one. I made ice cream with fat free sweetened condensed milk, fat free half and half, and 1/2 a cup of baking cocoa. Oh, yum! It tastes wonderfully. I ate more of it than I should have, and tomorrow, when its fully frozen, I'll be good and only eat a scoop at a time. Then it'll be about two points. I think there are ways to make it lighter, maybe by stretching the recipe. The hard part about the sweetened condensed milk is that even fat free its a lot of points because of all the sugar. And it does make it almost too sweet. So what I'm wondering is if I chilled a bowl, and whipped the half and half, maybe twice the amount, but the normal amount of sweetened condensed milk, and twice the chocolate I used... yeah, I think that might work. I'll try it next time I can get the ingredients, although I'd have to freeze it in two batches.
For dinner we made a sort of spinach pasta dish. Sautee garlic and onion in a little bit of oil. Add 1/2 pound turkey breast cubed and stir fry all that. Add 1 lb of spinach chopped and let it wilt. We added a small pile of herbs too. Then toss with spaghetti (4 cups cooked) and about 1/2 cup grated romano or parmesan cheese. Makes five servings, and I think each serving is about 6 points. And it was really really good. I've got leftovers for lunch. Yay!
