It's been about a year since I started this blog. A lot has changed for me since then, but what hasn't changed is my love for Hungry Girl recipes. While I currently have very limited time to write my blog, I am keeping it available so you can use it as a resource for Hungry Girl recipe reviews. Since most of my time goes towards my two jobs, my family, and training for a half marathon, my posting will be limited for the time being.

I was looking for something quick and easy to make for dinner when I found this recipe. Hot dog stir-fry? It sounded weird enough to be good, so I decided to give it a try. All this recipe consists of is hot dogs, onion and mushrooms stir-fried together. I used Ball Park fat-free turkey franks to make this, which I had never tried before. I usually get the Hebrew National 97% fat free beef hot dogs, but the Ball Park ones are cheaper and you get two more hot dogs in the package. They were actually really good!
I took Hungry Girl's advice in the cookbook to eat this on top of a salad. I had a huge salad with cucumbers and tomatoes, along with the entire recipe of the hot dog stir-fry. I figured at 3 Points+ per serving, I could afford two servings (actually, if you double all of the nutritional info and calculate the Points+ value, it is 5 Points+ for two servings). I was stuffed after eating my enormous salad! And it was really yummy with some low-fat ranch dressing. It was nice to have the contrast between the cold salad with the hot stir-fry on top. Next time I am looking for a quick and easy low-point meal, I might turn to this one.
