Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Navy Bean Soup

It's always soup weather!  I made a ham and had lots of leftovers. This is just one of the ways to use up leftovers. This is very easy to make, not fancy......but oh so good!

Makes @8 1-cup Servings
1 Serving = @5 PointsPlus™

1 lb bag of dried navy beans, rinsed
1 lb carrots, peeled and sliced into bite-size pieces
1 onion, chopped
4 bay leaves
salt & pepper to taste
1 ham bone PLUS @2 cups of cut up ham

Place ham bone in a stock pot.
Put all the rest of the ingredients in the pot.  Add enough water to cover them. Simmer for @3 hours, covered.

MY SPIN: This is one of those recipes where it's kind of hard to figure the PointsPlus™ exactly because of the amount of ingredients that will actually make it into your bowl.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Loving Life(time)!
