Nothing like some delicious meals to make you happy right?! Here are some of my food updates and a few recipes as well!
Bison Steak and a side of veggies! My mom loves to shop at White Feather Meats where she gets all sort of goodies… when I stayed for dinner the other night we cooked up the bison steaks and made some veggies on the side! We cooked up squash, zucchini, and mushrooms! I love making the side of these veggies… I just like to sauté them a bit in a pan until they are a little soft but still a little crunchy… makes for a delicious side dish. I also like putting some red paper flakes in it as well to spice it up a bit!
As I am sure you have guessed by now, Tim and I love chicken! So we made some grilled chicken on the George Forman (which we love to do) and just put some spices in there! I also love green beans so I try to put them with as many dishes as I can and well Tim loves some cheesy shells so we had some of those too! On the right side of the picture Tim was serving up some Tilapia that night. We love the frozen Tilapia from Sam’s Club and it is so easy to pop in the oven for 25 minutes! Both easy dinner that don’t take long to make and that offer up all sort of delicious and healthy treats!
CHICKEN SAUSAGE! Ahhh I just love it! And I also discovered these Garden Select Vegetable Chips. Now, I won’t pretend for even a second that these are good for you but they are certainly are a better alterative to potato chips. So I prepared Tim some chicken sausage and veggies with the veggie chips on the side. Now, I served Tim’s dinner in a bun but if I can help it I try to opt out of those parts of dinner. I just feel like they are carbs my body doesn’t need or want.
I feel like I have been eating at my parents a lot! Last week we made some tasty herbed mustard chicken. Originally my mom was just going to put the chicken on the George but since she had all the ingredients I decided to mix up some mustard chicken. WE had some mixed greens on the side and strawberries for a little sweet treats on the side. Those greens on the side were pretty serious!
We started out with some wheat grass which cooks down to a very management texture. We then added in peppers and all sort of goodies. It turned out to be very filling and I found myself not wanting anything more after this… satisfying for sure. I think one of the best parts was all of the many textures this meal had… it’s interesting but something should be said for giving your mouth a little fun… allowing all the textures and flavors in one meal make it that much more satisfying.
I love a good salad! This one consisted of lettuce, green olives, and some Morning Star Chicken Patties (which are not really chicken at all but taste just like they are)! So I cooked up those pseudo chicken patties and put it on top of a nice bed of lettuce! I also find these are so much better than lunch because the lettuce and everything just seems more fresh.
I also try to get some spinach in my diet where I can and I have found that I actually really like hard boiled eggs! So (again another night at my parents) we had a nice side of a lot of spinach and some peppers, onions, and a whole lot of vitamins and nutrients.
So there are some food updates for you! Enjoy!!
So first off, apologize for the random post you all saw today! I just recently downloaded Windows Live Writer in an attempt to make blogging easier! Not sure if that will be true or not but I thought I would give it a try. I also need to find a similar function for a MAC since my personal computer is a MAC. Otherwise I guess I could download to Tim’s PC hehe! Any suggestions on the MAC question are more than welcomed!
So I recently realized that I may have a thing for produce which makes this a Worrisome Wednesday post and a Tasty Tuesday post (see how I did that- pretty sweet hu?). Anyway every time Tim and I go to Sam’s Club we both walk out of there thinking that I just can’t stay away from the delicious of fruits and some vegetables. This Sam’s club trip I came home looking like this.
Speaking of Mangos… does peeling a mango make you CRAZY?! If not, than you are way ahead of me and know the mango peeling tricks out there but this girl did not know how to easily make this happen. I always just took a knife and peels the whole thing and then cut it. UGH, that is one reason not to eat mango. HOWEVER, the box from Sam’s that they beauties came in had cutting instructions right there on the outside! So what you do is just cut it into big chunks around the core of the mango (I had to cut mine into 4 to get the most fruit possible) then you make slits in the mango without cutting all the way through to the skin and then the magic happens. Similar to getting avocado out all you have to do is take a spoon and scoop out the mango pieces you just sliced. Easy as 1, 2, 3 compared to the hard as 101, 102, and 103 that is used to take me! Just a little Savvy Sunday treat for you on Thursday! If you are a more visual person I also found this website where you can see the magic happening step by step.
Then we also have a massive amount of blackberries (which I usually eat in one sitting), blueberries (which I could eat in like half a sitting they go so quickly), and some plum things. For some reason I am having trouble remembering what those things are called. When I think of plums I now think of Italian Plum- which is the color of the bridesmaid dresses!
And then I take all of the delicious treats and I go nuts when I pack breakfast for work (typically I don’t eat breakfast at home because I spend too much time wandering around the house in the morning and then feel totally rushed!).
So I just have a thing for produce I guess! That is all there is to it! I also realized that I love all sorts of fruits but I struggle with vegetables.
Some of my favorite fruits are (fruits are FUN):
Some of my favorite Veggies are (veggies are not so FUN):
- Tomato (or is it a fruit now a days)
- Pickles (I think pickles are veggies)
I’ll have to work on the vegetable thing I suppose!
Enjoy your day and be sure to get your fruits and VEGGIES in!!
