This is a dinner I had whipped together because I had made a boatload of breaded eggplant cutlets (see here) and homemade meat sauce (see here). Wanting something different (even though it’s using the same ingredients) I opted to make myself a single serving of eggplant parmesan. It looked different because I served it up in a single serve baking dish; it tasted different (due to the cheese) and I opted for a salad on the side instead of pasta.
My entire plate is only 6 points plus values! My eggplant parm was 6 points plus and the salad with 1 tbsp dressing was 0 points plus. Not bad – it was delicious, filling and it looked more “guilty” than it actually was.
I spooned a tablespoon of sauce into the bottom of the dish, added 1 1/2 slices of eggplant cutlet, some sauce, 2 eggplant slices, topped it with the remaining sauce and sprinkles 1/4cup of fat free mozzarella over the top. I then popped it into the oven for roughly 10 minutes to heat through and melt the cheese.
I purchased a pack of Jack Daniels Beef Brisket at Target when it was on sale. I had seen this particular product time and time again but had yet to purchase. On the look out for something new, I decided to grab a pack and have it for lunch one day.
I heated the pack up per the directions – piercing the bag and placing into the microwave. When done I weighed out my serving – 151 grams.I paired it up with a baked potato and some canned carrots. The carrots and potato were delicious but the brisket was mediocre. It was alright but not something I was a huge fan of.It was passable as a meal, but not enjoyable and I like to enjoy my food. The brisket was fatty so I spent a majority of the time cutting the fat off the meat and feeding it to my dogs. They enjoyed it.
I’ve tried a few of the Jack Daniels line items and while I do enjoy the pulled chicken, it is very sweet. The glaze used on the beef brisket is also sweet, but not sickeningly so. A 151 gram serving was 5 points plus.Worth it?Eh, I don’t know if I’d say it was but it was a meal…
Have you tried any of the Jack Daniels heat and eat meals?
