Overnight Oatmeal with Apples

Overnight oatmeal with apples

2 small apples cut into ½ inch pieces

Juice of ¼ small lemon

4 cups water

1 cup steel-cut oats

1 cinnamon stick

½ tsp kosher salt

¼ cup packed brown sugar

Lowfat milk

This recipe said to bake in the oven overnight for 8 hours…I really didn’t want to leave my gas stove on for that long, so I used the crock pot and it turned out great!  It ‘s a great idea to do if you have a busy morning and want a warm breakfast waiting for you.

Place all ingredients into crockpot except milk and cook on low 8 hours.

Yields 1 cup oatmeal with 3 Tbsp milk for 5 points.

Slow Cooked Black Eyed Peas with Ham

I made this yesterday for our New Years Day meal.  It was very good!  A bit spicy, which I like.

8 oz smoked lean ham steak, diced (or a ham bone, which is what I used)

1 pound dried black-eyed peas, rinsed and soaked overnight

2 bay leaves

1 tsp olive oil

1 onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 jalapeno, seeded and minced

1 tomato, diced

1/2 tsp chili powder ( I used chipotle)

1 1/2 tsp cumin

1 tsp pepper

salt to taste

Soak peas overnight in 6 cups of water.  The next morning, drain peas and add to slow cooker.  Add 4 cups of water, bay leaves and ham.  Cover and cook on high 6 hours or until the beans are tender.

After 6 hours, in a large frying pan, add oil and saute onion, garlic, bell pepper, jalapeno pepper, and tomato until soft, about 6 minutes.  Add to the slow cooker and season black-eyed peas generously with salt, cumin, chili powder and black pepper.  Cover and cook on high 1 to 1 1/2 more hours.  Discard bay leaves and serve.

Yields 8 servings of 1 cup each for 3 pts or 4 pts +
