HELP!!
Not sure if this is the best place to post this or not but...
I am having some friends over for dinner who are on Weight Watchers and have a few questions about what I'm cooking.
I'm planning on making tacos with pork loin but I'm not sure what the best option for tortillas is, would brown rice be better than white and lastly since it's for a birthday any simple desert ideas???

Thank you!!!

White Chocolate Macadamia Flax Cookies
I'm a total cookie person.  I love pretty much every kind.  However, being on Weight Watchers, I have needed to cut back on things like these.

This recipe has 1 1/2 cups of flaxseed meal which satisfies my daily oil requirement in one cookie and they are rich and nutty which satisfies my cookie "requirement".

For those of you who are unaware of the very nutritious values of flaxseed, please see here.

Turkey Burger 
with Chili Fries


POINTS® Value: 7
Servings:  4
Preparation Time:  10 min
Cooking Time:  35 min
Level of Difficulty:  Moderate

 
Put a spin on the typical burger and fries by pairing the fries with meatloaf. Preheat the oven to 350°F, shape the turkey mixture into a loaf and bake until cooked through, about 45 minutes. Let it stand 10 minutes before slicing.

Ingredients

  • 2 large potato(es), cut into thin strips
  • 2 large egg white(s)
  • 3/4 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp table salt
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, (optional)
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 medium onion(s), red, chopped
  • 1 large egg(s), beaten
  • 2 Tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 1 medium garlic clove(s), minced
  • 1/2 tsp ground tarragon
  • 1/2 tsp table salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 4 light wheat buns, high-fiber (1 point each)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a nonstick baking sheet and broiler rack with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine potatoes, egg whites, cumin, salt, chili powder and pepper; toss to coat. Transfer to baking sheet.
  • Bake until potatoes are barely tender, about 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl lightly combine turkey, onion, egg, parsley, garlic, tarragon, salt and pepper. Form into 4 burgers.
  • Increase oven temperature to broil. Broil fries until crispy, about 10 minutes. At the same time, broil burgers until brown, about 5 minutes on each side.
  • Place on rolls and serve immediately.

French Onion Soup=3 Points
It's seriously delicious.  The only variation is that I used three and a half onions instead of two.  I also omitted the french bread only because I've had a bad day points wise.  The cheese is fat free swiss, which isn't french, but I was plumb out of french cheese.

Delicious...and whatever the french translation of delicious might be.
