Wow! It’s been a busy week in the UFC household. There hasn’t been any one major event, just lots of little happenings that have kept me from sitting down at the computer for quite some time. I’ve been eating a lot of repeat meals and leftovers so you haven’t missed much in the creative food department.
I attempted to make a dent in my Google Reader this morning. My favorite bloggers have been super busy so I had well over 150 posts. Needless to say I’m not all caught up yet, but I did get to a few. I had help for a while. Peanut sat on my lap and slapped at the keyboard so I apologize if anyone had random letters in comments I left. I can’t take responsibility for that. LOL
Blogs don’t hold her attention quite as long as they do mine. She fell asleep, head-first on the keyboard:
She’s down in her crib so I’ll take this time to update you with (most of) yesterday’s eats.
I like Larabar‘s on their own, but I like them even better mixed into my oats. I crumbled up a Chocolate Coconut Chew and added it while the oats were still hot. When I stirred it up, the chocolate melted and it got ooey gooey like a brownie. Yum!
Pasta sounded good for lunch. Okay, pasta always sounds good 🙂 , but it sounded especially good when I remembered I had Buitoni 100% Whole Wheat Three Cheese Tortellini in the refrigerator.
I could easily eat these plain, but I wanted to bulk it up with some veggies. I diced a tomato, sliced some mushrooms and broke some fresh green beans in half. I threw all of that into a saucepan with EVOO, garlic and a couple splashes of white wine. I surprised myself with how great it tasted, plus the veggies made the meal extremely filling. I love when a food experiment works out!
I didn’t take any pictures of dinner, but I found this one courtesy of Cooking Light:
O.M.G. This was sooooo good. It had so many delicious flavors that blended together perfectly. It’s going in the recipe file as a definite “make again” meal.
You can find the original recipe here. I substituted 3 slices of turkey bacon for the applewood smoked bacon and cooked the chicken in a little EVOO rather than the bacon drippings.
Well, sounds like someone is awake so I’m off to do my motherly duties. Hope everyone has a fantastic day. See you all again tomorrow!
