So this is probably not new news to anyone but yea I love food! So I thought I would post some of my tasty food choices over the last week or so! I made stuffed mushrooms, a wonderful breakfast wrap, kale and white bean soup for dinner, and even some overnight oats.
On the weekends Tim and I like to make breakfast! Since we are so busy getting ready for work in the AM it’s tough to spend that time together and get a quality breakfast meal so we take advantage of the time we have on the weekends.
Most of the time it looks like this…
And consists of these items…
- Scrambled eggs (usually about 4 eggs for Tim and I)
- Green peppers
- Spinach (sometimes just for me)
- Tomatoes (always just for me)
- Low Fat or Fat Free cheese (varies by the cheese in our fridge)
- Sour Cream and Salsa (just me for the salsa) on the side
All on a FLAT OUT which can be used for so many other purposes than a breakfast wrap but so delicious! We almost always have regular low carb tortilla wraps (which is what I had to use in the picture above) but when I can I find the FLAT OUT option the best!
I heard about overnight oats from my friend Mary over at Fervent Foodie a while ago and Tim and I were going nuts making these things for months but they started to get a little old so we went on a overnight oats sabbatical for a while.
These oats were made a little different than I had ever made them before BUT they were pretty delicious
- 1 cup Oats
- 1 cup soy egg nog
- Handful of chia seeds
- Dash (ok a really good dash) of nutmeg
You just make these the night before and then let them sit in the fridge overnight. Then they are ready to rock and roll the next morning and you can take them to work or wherever you are going!
So I have been trying to incorporate kale into my juicing but the taste and the strong smell of that stuff is something else. So by some random stroke of luck I ran into my friend Michelle at work who had some kale and white bean soup. This was delicious.
But it made a heck of a lot!
I slightly followed a recipe that I found online but this is pretty much what I came up with
- A TON of kale
- Chicken bouillon cubes (2)
- White Northern Beans
I just cooked it all up in a HUGE pot and ate it for weeks… I shared one bowl with my parents too and they seemed to enjoy it!
My mom makes stuffed mushrooms a lot and I love them but Tim isn’t a big fan and well they just aren’t something I have made a whole lot of. So I decided to give it a try!
I cooked up the insides of the mushrooms and put this in it…
- Ground turkey
- Turkey sausage
- Green Peppers
- Chili Powder
- Fat Free Cheddar Cheese
Cook all of that goodness in a skillet and then put them in hollowed out mushrooms that have some olive oil on them to ensure they don’t burn to a crisp in the oven. If you cook at 350 degrees for 20 minutes they are DELICIOUS!
I cooked up some orzo for Tim and put aside the insides in a separate bowl so that he didn’t have to eat the mushroom… I knew he would be happy about that!
Well hope you enjoyed this tasty updates!
I happen to LOVE breakfast. Like really LOVE it. I just wish there was more time in the morning so I could make myself a delicious full breakfast every day… now that would be fabulous!
Saturday and Sunday are usually good days to make a tasty breakfast! Tim and I both like making breakfast so we generally spend the mornings doing it together but with it being tax season Tim spent the other Saturday on his computer doing some tax returns so I made us some treats! Now, I don’t know what you call it but we always called it an egg in the hole. Tim always called it a birds nest… so not sure what you call it but it is the tasty treat of putting a hole in the middle of a piece of bread and cracking an egg in it! My favorite part, well at least one of them, is the middle bread part. I usually make my hole with a glass but I think you can use anything handy that is just a bit smaller than the bread. My biggest problem is trying to make the egg just runny enough but not too runny.. ugh it’s the tough part of life right?! But in any case putting a side of bacon along with the egg in the hole made for a really tasty breakfast. If you don’t call it a egg in a hole or a birds nest, what do you call it?!
Then the next day, Tim and I enjoyed a wrap! We used those Flat Breads named “Flat Out” that we used for our pizzas the one night but used them as a breakfast wrap instead and they were pretty darn tasty! I usually fill mine way too much and can barely wrap it but I find that if I put it on the pan for a little bit to cook it up and stick it together it works out great! I like to eat this with salsa or sour cream on the side! Tim is NOT a fan of wrapping so I always wrap his for him!
And yes, I downloaded instagr.am on my iPhone so that is why this is such a fancy little picture! I’ll try to use it more because I do think it looks pretty cool!!
And then I had an extra special treat at work the other day! Jaclyn, a friend and co-worker, got our cafeteria at work to name a breakfast wrap after her! So we enjoyed Jaclyn’s Wrap filled with egg, cheese, and hash browns in the morning for a little team get together.
I only made it through half the wrap but it was a fantastic way to start my day!
So tell me, how do you like to start your day?!
So… when I went to the grocery store the other night, pitas were on my list. But then I came across these things called “flat out”. To be perfectly honest what made me by then was the picture of the delicious pepperoni pizza on the front of the package. That silly advertising got me good. Tim and I have really enjoyed pita pizzas in our past so I thought these little flat breads would be a nice addition to our menu selections so I bought them!
Then the no food in the fridge and the nothing thawed out night presented itself. So I made not one, but two, pizzas! I couldn’t decide if I wanted to classic pizza or the fancy tomato olive type pizza!
So I looked online at the flat out website and I noticed that they suggested you grill the flat breads but well, it is freaking cold outside so I said no! Instead I first baked the flat bread at 350 degrees for 7 minutes. Then I pulled the hot little sucker out of the oven and laid some pizza sauce on it with pepperoni on top with some peppers and onions! DELICIOUS! This pizza, along with Tim’s taco type pizza, cooked first! It was as tasty as it is pretty!
So then I made my other pizza! With a olive oil and salt and pepper base I topped it off with tomatoes, olives, artichokes, and cheese! It LOOKED delicious but I made the mistake of having bigger eyes than I do belly and didn’t even tasty it! By the time I tried to eat it a day later I realized it was a terrible idea because the flat bread was just too soggy even with the reheat in the oven! Oh well, next time I’ll try it!
So pick yourself up some FLAT OUT bread! then check out the website and make some delicious recipes!
Flat Out rocks!!
