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!!!

Fiesta Cabbage

I had a head of cabbage. I don't know why I bought it.....I guess it looked good! So I had to decide what to do with it and didn't feel like making stuffed cabbage. I found this recipe and pretty much followed it with the exception of using less kielbasa and light butter (you can see in the picture).  It was delicious!

Makes 6 Servings
1 Serving = 7 PointsPlus®**

1 pound kielbasa, cut into 1/4” diagonal slices
2 TBSP butter
4 ounces red onion, diced (@ a medium onion)
1 green pepper, diced
2 pounds cabbage, chopped (@ a medium sized head)
1 (14.5 oz) can of diced tomatoes, undrained
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper

In a very large nonstick skillet, brown the kielbasa. Remove from the pan, leaving the drippings in the pan. 

Add 2 TBSP butter. Saute' the onion and green pepper in the pan over a medium-high heat for @3 minutes.

Stir in the remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on low heat for 15 minutes or until the cabbage is tender. Uncover the pan for the last 5 minutes to allow some of the liquid to evaporate.

MY SPIN: I used 14 ounces of beef kielbasa and light butter but didn't figure up the P+ value for my changes. Abe and I both agreed that adding some garlic would be really good as well as a side of garlic sticks.  **The P+ value that you actually eat will depend upon how much of each ingredient you eat.......and I don't know of anyone, not even me when I was die-hard WW, who will take apart a completed meal to measure/weigh each ingredient!

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!
