Gooooood morning! Now that it actually FEELS like spring outside, I am taking advantage of the fresh flavors. I have been stocking up on fruits and veggies as they come into season.
Here is a look at my eats on Monday, May 5th. I apologize for the quality of the photos but they were all taken with my phone, not my camera. As always, thanks to Jenn for hosting this week’s WIAW party!
I figured out that if I microwave my eggs in a round dish, they take the shape of the container and then I can flip one side over the other to make a perfect omelet! SCORE!
My favorite lunch that I have been eating for the past 2 weeks is salads topped with deli meat! Idk why I have never thought to do this before!!! I make my typical salad with mixed greens, tomato and peppers and top it with 2-3 slices of deli turkey breast and it’s freaking delicious! I get the protein of the meat without all the carbs from sandwich bread. It’s also pretty cheap to compile which is always a plus!
and blueberries! Winter fruit is usually water logged and has very little taste. It’s becoming that time of year where berries are fresh and have lots of flavor. I made a little parfait using a vanilla Chobani. So yummy.
I am currently addicted to Werther’s sugar free hard candies! They are the perfect kick of sweetness after my lunch and it keeps my chocolate cravings at bay.
Last week I hit an amazing find at the grocery store- clearance meats! Shaw’s has a huge selection of meat that was about to expire and I went a little nuts
I ended up with chicken, turkey, chicken sausages, buffalo chicken, and a TON of ground pork. $1 per pound?! Sign me up! Monday night I cooked up an entire package of ground pork to incorperate into meals this week. Monday night’s dinner- Stuffed peppers! I used this recipe, just used pork instead of beef.
I really couldn’t tell the difference. In fact, Nolan and I discussed at length that they may have mis marked the meat in the first place because it tasted a lot like beef. Oh well, it was delicious anyway.
With warmer weather comes frozen yogurt! I headed to Sweet Spot for a sweet treat after dinner. My new favorite flavor combo is cookies and cream with cake batter yogurt mixed in. Heavenly. I topped it off with Oreo’s, Snicker’s pieces, toffee pieces, and yogurt chips.
