I just want to thank Gayle for her crock pot gizzard recipe. I love ried gizzards but these were really good and tender. No wonder your son likes them so well. Gee, this way my husband might even eat them.
Thanks a lot, Fran in LaVista

Nancy, thanks for your efforts and time in getting the newsletter to us. I suggest that you make the decision as to number of times to publish.

Meanwhile, I would like to encourage all newsletter subscribers to share recipes. It must be disappointing to discover after hours of work, that the number of recipes submitted is insufficient for finishing. Please contribute recipes to accommodate the needs to maintain this valuable newsletter.

Thanks again, Nancy for all you do to keep this newsletter published.

Thanks Nancy for being willing to share your experience with Weight Watchers and the recipes that are not copyrighted. I think the way you do. I also would have given the delicious cake to a neighbor or friend. I certainly subscribe to the theory that you can't eat it, if it is not in the house. We have also learned the importance of closely reading labels. Good Luck with your efforts to lose weight.

Good morning Nancy and all Landers,
We had a wonderful 4th just staying home. But of course the Air Show was going on 3 blocks from my house so noise and more noise because the Blue Angels were here. Love to watch them but the noise gets on my nerves after a while. And my poor male cat Toby is likely to have a nervous breakdown lol. Don't know why he is so scared of loud noises(even when I sneeze he runs downstairs) but of course the jets are really loud.
Newsletter looks great today - thanks everyone for contributing.

Dulce de Leche Cheesecake Parfaits Recipe

2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 (13.4 oz) can dulce de leche
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch salt
15 gingersnaps (I used Nabisco)
1 or 2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 pound strawberries, hulled and quartered

In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the dulce de leche, vanilla, salt, and beat together, making sure to scrape down the sides.
Crush the gingersnaps in a food processor, or you can use a rolling pin and a ziplock. Add 1 tablespoon melted butter and mix together. Add another tablespoon of butter if you want.
Layer the cheesecake, crumbs, and strawberries in whatever order you want. Chill until ready to serve.
It would be great served in wine glasses, 8-ounce clear plastic cups, or dessert bowls.
You can also serve this as a dip! Serve it in a big bowl, sprinkle the crumbs over the top, and use strawberries for dipping.

Dulce de leche can be found next to the sweetened condensed milk in the baking aisle. Often they have it in the Hispanic foods aisle too.
Serves 6-8

Filo Prawn Fingers with Wasabi Soy Dip Recipe

2 spring onions, chopped fine
3 sheets filo pastry
1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
12 large prawns, shelled and de-veined
1 teaspoon grated fresh gingerroot
vegetable oil for deep frying
1 small fresh red chili, seeded and chopped
Wasabi Paste Soy Dip, see recipe
1 teaspoon tamarind paste or lemon juice
1 tablespoon tomato purée

Direction s
Place the spring onions, coriander (cilantro), garlic, ginger, chili, tamarind paste or lemon juice and tomato purée in a blender and blend to a
smooth paste.

Cut each sheet of pastry lengthwise into 4 strips 8 × 3 inches.

Take one strip and brush with a little of the oil.

Spread 1/2 teaspoon of the paste along one narrow end.

Place a prawn over the top, with only the tail extending beyond the edge of the pastry.

Roll up to enclose the prawn, twisting the ends together to seal.

Cover with a clean tea towel and repeat to make 12 fingers.

Heat 4 inches of vegetable oil in a heavy-based pan to a temperature of 350ºF or until a cube of bread browns in 30 seconds.

Carefully slip in the prawn fingers and cook for 2 minutes until the pastry is crisp and golden.

Drain on absorbent paper, and serve at once with the Wasabi Soy Dip.

I really like this very simple, but tasty main dish, with a Mexican flare.

Tamale Pie Squares Recipe

1-3/4 cups (14-1/2 oz. jar) Spaghetti sauce

1/4 cup chopped onion
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 pkg. Jiffy corn muffin mix
1 can (4 oz.) diced green chilies, drained
1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese (I use more)

In large bowl, combine 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce, beef, bread crumbs, onion, pepper and and egg. Mix well. Pat firmly into a 9x13" baking dish, or pan. Bake 400 for 10 minutes; spoon off any fat. Meanwhile, prepare muffin mix according to directions on package, stirring in green chilies. Spread remaining spaghetti sauce over beef mixture; sprinkle with cheese.

Evenly spread prepared corn muffin mix over all. Bake 20 to 25 minutes at 400 until golden brown and topping is cooked through. Serves 6.

I share the same thoughts as Robbie does about the newsletter. I enjoy it being posted 6 days a week, even if there isn't all that many recipes, request, comments, etc., but when you want to take a day off, then you should. Doing the newsletter should be enjoyable for you and not something you feel forced to do. The subscribers should understand. It has always been the bright spot in my day. Thank you for bring so much pleasure to others.

We really like this really good variation for potato salad.

Italian Potato Salad Recipe

3 lbs. potatoes (I use the medium sized red ones)
1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
4 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
3/4 cup chopped celery
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped cucumber
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup dairy sour cream
1 tsp. prepared horseradish
Chopped fresh tomatoes

Boil potatoes covered in water, until tender; drain and cool. Peel (can leave skins on red potatoes) and cut into cubes. Place in large bowl and add Italian dressing; toss to coat well. Cover and chill 2 hours. Add eggs, celery, onion, cucumber and green pepper. Mix well. In small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream and horseradish and mix well. Toss with potato mixture to coat well. Chill at least 1 hour. Top with chopped tomatoes before serving.

Nancy's Weight Watcher Corner

Went to the grocery yesterday and found
La Tortilla Factory Low Carb, High Fiber made with whole wheat. I loved the tortillas. They are only one point per tortilla. I am one of those people that usually don't eat bread but will eat a tortilla. Love to have a mid day snack by putting 2 ounces of think sliced deli ham, dijon mustard and a little lettuce. If I use 1 ounce of ham, i low carb tortilla, tiny bit of dijon mustard, and lettuce it becomes a 3 point snack.

I tried this recipe for my lunch. Ate Lean Cruisine Herb Roasted Chicken (4 points) and the roasted vegetables (1 point). The recipe is below.

Roasted Summer Vegetables Recipe

2 lbs. fresh vegetables such as red and yellow bell peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, red onion, and mushrooms
Fat Free Italian Dressing (1 cup)
Cut the vegetables into large bite-size pieces. Keep zucchini and squash slices thick. Place vegetables in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Coat vegetables with dressing and broil 8 minutes or until tender.

Note: The vegetables are 0 points. The fat free Italian dressing is 5 points. If you serve 4 people it would be between 1 and two points.

I made it for just me. One serving  of this  was vegetables (0 points,) 3 tablespoons of fat free Italian dressing would be (1 point.) Although it was very good, I think next time I will try using Zesty Italian Dressing.
