Today was such a good Sunday! Considering my view as of late has been these 4 walls of my living room, I enjoyed it quite nicely. After alllll that food yesterday, I was craving something cool & delicious this morning. I threw together a tasty cold breakfast bowl:
I defrosted about a 1/4 c. of TJ’s frozen berries and mixed that with 1/2 a c. 2% cottage cheese. Then I topped it with a sliced banana and a chopped juicy perfectly-ripe peach! Twas delicious!
The weather was looking fab for the rest of the day, so I headed for the sand! I was going to just put a plastic bag over the bottom of my cast, but I had heard about these things from CVS that they make specifically for showering in a cast, so we stopped there on the way. 15 minutes later my sister came out of the store (she had to ask 3 people – no one could find them) and when we were driving away I opened it up and darn thing had a hole in it! Plus the clasp things that are supposed to keep it closed didn’t work. Bah! So I went with the plastic bag and rubberband anyways..
While at the beach I noshed on a whole wheat everything bagel. Second day verdict: still soft & perfect!
With that guy I had a crunchy gala
Blurry apple, clear super scientific cast cover (garbage bag.)
I hadn’t planned on that being lunch, but that’s what it turned out to be.
It started to thunder around 3:30 so we headed home JUST in time. The minute I walked in the door the skies opened up. The news just interrupted my episode of House with a severe thunderstorm & flash flood warning. Eeesh!
Anywho…I was craving vegetables, probably since I hadn’t had any all day 😛 So I threw a huge bag of frozen spinach on the stove, with a little salt, pepper & garlic powder.
Problem was, I had no idea what I was going to do with it. I was craving eggs, but I’m not a fan of omelettes. I decided to saute a couple of sliced baby portabellas and cherry tomatoes and see where it took me.
The word frittata came to mind….but what exactly is a frittata? I’d had them at restaurants, but had never made one myself. I thought they were just open-faced omelettes, but then I remembered seeing someone on a blog put one in the oven? So I just wasn’t sure. SO I threw 2..and then plus 1 more when it wasn’t enough to cover the bottom of the pan…eggs in the pan. I topped that with way too much spinach, and then in a last minute “uh-oh-this-is-not-working” moment I decided to toss it all together. Threw the tomaters and shrooms in, too, and about 2 Tbsp shredded parm.
It looked something like this all tossed in the pan:
It went from some abstract idea of “frittata” to a Spinach Egg Scramble. Perfection!
This was sooo good. Definitely didn’t need 3 eggs, and I was full to the brim when I was done eating it, but tasty none the less. In case you haven’t noticed yet, leaving food on the plate is obviously not an option. I have been a member of The Clean Plate Club my whole life. Healthier food is now on the plate. It still all goes in my belly!
Now I’ve got a serious hankerin for some chocolatey goodness! I’m going to try to steer clear of the leftover chocolate cake from last night, and grab some TJ’s 72% dark cacao to end my weekend with 🙂
Enjoy the last few moments of the weekend!
