    How about a WW meal with lots of veggies?

    Jacket potato with salad and prawns or tuna? around 9PP

    14PP is quite a lot for one meal i think anyway so enjoy it!

    oh you have loads of points left I wouldn't worry!!
    I generally don't use more than 9-10 pp per dinner.
    maybe some grilled chicken, lots of veg and a salad? or grilled fish is yummy.

    Some noodles are only 4 points a portion and there are these little packets of sauce you can get in the same section of most supermarkets which are 1 -2 point a portion depending on which sauce you choose (each pack contains enough sauce ffor 2 portions)

    I often have

    Noodles - 4 points
    Prawns 100g - 2 points
    veg - 0 points
    sauce / oil - 2-3 points (depending on sauce used)

    That always does the trick, and at the moment I'm loving it.

    If you don't like prawns you can change it for 82grams of chicken cut up, for 2 points, or a small bit of beef or pork again depending on what sauce you use as even though they all (IMO) taste great with prawns, some can go better with other types of meat.

    The sauces are 3 for 2 in tesco at the moment and are usually around 50-60pence each, here is one to show you..
    Blue Dragon Chow Mein Stir Fry Sauce 120G - Groceries - Tesco Groceries

    For me I just nook the noodles in the microwave for 90 seconds, then add them to all the other ingredients which has been cooking in the pan (that's the veg, and my frozen prawns), then I just quickly add some sauce mix, let it heat through and vuala


    Sorry for the long post :eek:

    Regarding the noodles I use. Loads of different ones

    ASDA have some of the Sharwoods ones for £1 at the moment and they come with 2 packets of noodles inn a bag....

    Sharwoods
    - Medium Soft Noodles
    - Fine Noodles
    - Thai Style Ribbon Noodles

    Amoy
    - Rice Noodles

    These are all the ones that I could find that were 4/5 points a packet (there may be more but not sure, also never used 2 packets so not sure if 2 packets would be 8,9 or even 10points)

    If you are using weight watchers online please double check the points as they have the rice noodles down at 5 points when there actually 4 points a packet (when I was in the shops I devided the calories by 40 and got 4point and also checked it on the calculator when I got home) I believe its 35.0 for carbohydrates and they have it down at 37.2 (or something like that online not sure why they got it wrong)

    I know it says on the packet about either nooking the noodles or cooking them in the pan. The only reason I prefer to nook them is cause I don't need to use any extra oil to cook them in.. (watch you don't over cook the rice noodles as they tend to get a little sticky)
