Happy Monday everyone! I hope your Monday was good. I am currently not working, and Hubby is on break until Wednesday, so I am enjoying some really awesome quality time + helping Juan with his project.
So as I am home I decided for the next 2 days to cook breakfast and lunches! Just to get in the habit of cooking yummy and healthy food. Because I really need to work on it…I used to hate cooking. Well not really ‘hate’ but more like I have no idea what I am doing in the kitchen! I look at the food in the pantry and the fridge and it overwhelms me.
However, with me trying small things and with the Hubby encouraging me I have so far 2 recipes under me! Both of them are from SkinnyTaste! I love her pictures of the food, it draws me in, and because it is so easy to make what she’s made I keep coming back! My first attempt at cooking was with the Chicken Rollatini With Spinach! And I got praises from the Hubby and my In-Laws!!
So my second foray into the scary kitchen was for lunch! Well technically breakfast but I made waffles with water and canola oil, and since I am comfy with breakfast things I am not really including it…I also forgot to take photos! Sorry!!
Here is what I made – From SkinnyTaste! It was supposed to have Roast Beef and Shaved Parmesan but I didn’t have those things and didn’t really want to go out so I made it this way!
|Here are the stats!|
- 2 oz French Bread
- 2 tbsp of Kraft Mayo with Olive Oil
- 3 cup of spinach
- 3 Slices of Hillshire Farm Deli Select Smoked Turkey
- 1 1/2 tbsp of ricotta cheese – skim
- Non-Stick Spray
- 2 slices of small tomato
- Green Grapes
|Make sure to scoop out the middle|
|Warming the sandwich up|
