Hey guys! Happy Wednesday… time for another What I Ate Wednesday Post.
Anne recently wrote about making poached eggs, which is something I’ve always wanted to do but felt intimidated. Her experience inspired me to give it a shot and it turns out it wasn’t so hard!
I ended up using this Alton Brown recipe from the Food Network. I made 2 eggs with sides of center cut bacon and blueberries. (I know I’ve mentioned this in other WIAW posts but I choose center cut bacon over regular and turkey bacon because it has less fat and usually less sodium.)
The verdict: I didn’t hate the poached eggs, but I think I prefer pretty much every other kind of egg over poached I think I like my eggs best with a little crisp around the edges. But at least I tried it, right?
I made a simple lunch of tuna salad: tuna, mustard, relish, avocado, tomato and cracked pepper. I typically eat tuna with crackers or on a sandwich but I skipped that part today because I was still kind of full from breakfast. I didn’t feel like I was being too skimpy because the avocado (extra calories + healthy fats) added some staying power to the meal.
Compulsively ate these sweet potato chips. I swore I would never buy another bag of them for this very reason, yet here I am. Full of sweet and salty goodness.
I had a bunch of random ingredients in my fridge and ended up putting them all together to make some little stuffed peppers.
I basically halved the peppers and layered them with herbed goat cheese and ground beef (seasoned with salt, pepper and italian seasoning). Pretty random but turned out well!
I have been on a berry kick because I bought blueberries, raspberries and blackberries at the grocery store and I knew they would stay good for approximately 27 hours in my fridge.
I also discovered that peppers and herbed goat cheese make an excellent snack.
If I were to do it over again, I would probably mix the goat cheese with the ground beef first and then add them to the pepper. I layered the goat cheese on the bottom this time for portion control but it ended up adding an extra step to the dish.
What’s a completely random recipe/meal you’ve made lately?
Do you use the word “dinner” or “supper”? I always use dinner but at work, everyone says supper.
Do you like goat cheese? I loooooooooove it but can’t buy it all the time. I have no self control.
