Asian Cole Slaw

Asian Cole Slaw is a summer favorite.  The crunchies are the best.  We made this today along side some Teriyaki Chicken Legs and Fried Rice.

Asian Cole Slaw


  • 1 head napa cabbage (we used reg)
  • 1 bunch minced green onions
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 (3 ounce) package ramen noodles, broken
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds 
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce


  1. Finely shred the head of cabbage; do not chop. Combine the green onions and cabbage in a large bowl, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Make the crunchies: Melt the butter in a pot. Mix the ramen noodles, sesame seeds and almonds into the pot with the melted butter. Spoon the mixture onto a baking sheet and bake the crunchies in the preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven, turning often to make sure they do not burn. When they are browned remove them from the oven.
  4. Make the dressing: In a small saucepan, heat vinegar, oil, sugar, and soy sauce. Bring the mixture to a boil, let boil for 1 minute. Remove the pan from heat and let cool.
  5. Combine dressing, crunchies, and cabbage immediately before serving. Serve right away or the crunchies will get soggy.

Air Fried Home Fries and Chicken Sausage 5 ww sp

I have fallen in love with my Bella Air Fryer!!!

My Air Fryer is by far the most used appliance in my kitchen.  It keeps things cool, can make small batches and prepares everything in a healthier way.  Starting back up on Weight Watchers, the Air Fryer helps me keep the points low but still enjoy that yummy fried taste.

I'm not always a huge breakfast fan, but love hash browns and breakfast potatoes.  Cooking potatoes in a skillet takes a lot of oil to keep them from sticking.  I used to prepare home fries in the oven quite often, but the time and the heat the oven produces in the summer, just didn't make it seem practical on a daily basis.  Potatoes are decent sp wise too.  A 5oz potato is only 4sp.  I weigh my potato each morning on my kitchen scale before dicing to enter the exact weight into my Weight Watchers App.

I throw an Aldi All Natural Chicken Sausage in the Airfryer that cooks along with my potatoes each morning.  The Chicken Sausage is only 1sp and is a great size.

Air Fried Potatoes

1 Potato, washed and cubed
diced onion, amount to your taste
diced green pepper, to your taste
non stick cooking spray, I prefer butter flavored
season salt

Add cubed potato, onion and peppers to your Air fryer bin.  Coat with cooking spray and season to your liking with season salt.  Cook for 10 minutes at 400 degrees.

On a side note, I'm pretty proud of the fact that I have earned a "Blue Dot" for each day for May so far.  Eating within my Healthy Eating Zone has got my weight loss back on track after a dodgy April.  Who would have thought if you follow the Weight Watchers program as intended it works that much better ;)
