I am on a roll this week! Not only have I been in the mood/mindset to blog, but I have actually been remembering to take pictures of my food!
This past weekend I finally got my ass off the couch and started doing some cooking. I knew this week back to work was going to be an adjustment and that I needed to do all the food prep I could to keep me on track. This week’s breakfast is a homemade quiche!
Morning snack: cottage cheese. Every once in a few years I decide I like cottage cheese. This is one of those times. Not sure how long it will last because the texture really weirds me out.Lunch went un-photographed but it looked a lot like this:I made a big batch of tuna salad that I have been lunching on all week. On the side I had one of my current food obsessions: steamable sugar snap peas! One package is like $1.50, takes 5 minutes in the microwave, and is a deliciously healthy snack! Dinner originated as this Pinterest inspired dish, but I went a little rogue and ended up with this!I’m calling it a Philly Cheese Steak Casserole!The finished product really reminded me of the cheese steaks Nolan and I got at Pat’s in Philly last summer. I used Velveeta cheese because it closely resembled the “cheese wiz” they use on their cheese steaks!This recipe makes about 4 large servings, and according to My Fitness Pal, each serving is about 200 calories. Nolan chose to eat his on a seeded bun, and he added a little ketchup because he’s a weirdo.
It really feels good to be doing some food prep and spending more time in the kitchen. I have a few more recipes I’m excited to try out this week. Stay tuned!
