Highlight #1: Breakfast
I was craving eggs for breakfast and only eggs would do. Stealing a fun idea from Everyday Food with Martha Stewart, I cut two slices of green bell pepper, tossed them onto a hot pan with cooking spray, and cracked an egg into each. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and flip gently when it’s solidified underneath. Sprinkle again with salt and pepper and cook to desired doneness. 😀
The secret to these babies is to make sure that the pan is hot enough so that the eggs don’t leak out from the pepper. 😉
On the side I had two toasted slices of Trader Joe’s whole wheat sourdough bread with a bit of butter and a juicy grapefruit.
Best breakfast of the week! 😀
Highlight #2: Lunch
This salad was gigantic beyond belief. Garbanzos, avocados, sweet potato, cilantro, asparagus, alfalfa sprouts, cucumbers, pickles!!, and lots of mixed greens. It was super fresh and summer-y feeling. 😀
Highlight #3: Dinner
This Cauliflower Curry (click for recipe) is one of my favorite Moosewood recipes. It appears at first to have a long list of ingredients, but it’s actually relatively simple. It’s also pretty quick to put together considering the fact that curries usually take quite a bit of work. The flavor is lovely too. Very spicy and well rounded.
This is tasty served over brown rice (tonight I mixed it with peas for some veggies and color!) or served in a whole wheat wrap (tomorrow, maybe?) Yum! 😀
When it comes to cooking dinner, I follow a strict time schedule. As in, dinner must be on the table by 5 o’clock—it must, it must, it must! This results in a frantic cook (i.e., me) and a rushed meal. But I’ve discovered that in order for good food to be great, it needs a little extra TLC. So I’m giving myself a new goal of slowing down and enjoying the cooking process. Who cares if dinner comes a little later then normal?
On that note, I’m off to catch the Biggest Loser…last week before the finale! 😀
Question: Do you follow a pretty strict schedule when it comes to meal-time or do you eat at all different hours?
