This idea just popped into my head when I started thinking about what to make for dinner. I gotta be honest, I haven’t gone grocery shopping since coming home from the beach. I just haven’t been in the mood and I decided to use what I had on hand until my trip to the CSA farm this Friday. I can’t wait to see what goodies got harvested this week!
I’m so glad I had leftovers!! I used the London Broil from yesterday, a green bell pepper and some onion to make the most delicious wrap!
It worked out great as I had friend over for lunch today. The 6oz was perfect to make two loaded cheesesteaks. I decided to use a wrap to make it fun, light and full of fiber. Plus, I really didn’t have any other options. ;)
There are a few meals that I forget about which make wonderfully easy, delicious family pleasing dinners. London Broil is one of them.
London Broil is actually not a cut of meat although I always see packages of beef listed as such. I believe it’s a cooking process. Generally I buy choice cuts that are labeled “London Broil” which are about 1 inch thick and a pound. It’s more then enough for us and allows me to cook dinner up quickly having just enough leftovers to make a cheese steak or two the next day. Read the rest of this post
What’s a pancake waffle you ask? Well it’s my answer to not really knowing the difference between waffle and pancakes. I *THINK* waffles generally contain a bit more fat and sugar to crisp up more but I’m not sure. Normally I just use pancake batter in the waffle iron leaving them in long enough to crisp up and I’ve never had a problem. Then again I’m not known to follow any traditional rules when cooking. If it’s tasty and we like it then what’s the problem? Read the rest of this post
I have 2 sons, one in preschool and one will be next September. I have to pack them snacks for school and I really don’t want to keep relying on processed snack food for them. What kind of snacks do you give your little boy so he can avoid the processed food trap? Do you have some healthy kid-friendly snack ideas? Fruit just goes so far with my kids!
Ohhh Boy.. school lunches are about to begin for you. Always a hot topic especially this time of year. Read the rest of this post
Sorry for my absence. I was living it up in NYC at BlogHer! Of course what does the husband want to have for dinner my first day back? Pizza. ugh.
My solution… Order a small to minimize leftovers and make a simple salad on the side. Genius right?!? Sorry.. patting myself on the back for this one. Pizza is by far me weakness. So I had one slice and a cup of this salad for a wonderful, satisfying dinner! Read the rest of this post
I came home from work with a mission to cook a healthy meal with the little guy. I had defrosted scallops, some minute rice, and fresh sugar snap peas. Add in some pantry items like lime juice, lemon juice, soy sauce, sesame oil and ginger. Viola! A 20 minute meal. Read the rest of this post
I have confessed my dislike of mayo many times. Most recently on my Garden Tuna Salad with Feta idea. Unfortunately this dislike of one particular condiment has kept me from enjoying some pretty tasty traditional sandwich salads like tuna and chicken.
Honesty, I never understood peoples fascinations with these deli favorites. What the big deal anyway?
This morning I needed a little kitchen therapy. I’ll probably explain why over on my weight loss blog later but I don’t feel like hashing it all out right now. Let’s just say I needed some time with myself doing what I love, experimenting in the kitchen. So that is what I did. :)
This is it. My last official post as an Athenos Spokesblogger. It’s sort of sad but not really because I get to give stuff away to you! That always makes me happy! :)
First let announce the winner of last week’s Fabulous Feta Giveaway! Please congratulate Lori H.! She will be receiving the Athenos prize pack that includes the following items:
Well, I did it. I really did it! I have to admit part of me didn’t think it was possible. When ATHENOS asked if I’d be willing be a Spokesblogger for their Make a Change for the Feta campaign. It included creating 18 Feta Cheese ideas for the month of July and I was a little nervous. With a family, a full time job and a vacation planned would it even be possible?
Over and over and over again you guys kept suggesting feta with eggs and I just didn’t see it. If you’ve been reading for awhile you know I absolutely hate cheese on eggs. I’m not sure why. I love eggs. I LOVE cheese but put them together and…. ick, at least in my opinion.
I decided to face my fears this morning and take your suggestion. Worst case scenario…. I don’t like it. It wouldn’t be the first time I cooked something that just didn’t work out. Read the rest of this post
