Role Reversal

So today Erin did all of the cooking and I did the baking, usually it is the other way around...
Trying to stay somewhat healthy we started today's cooking with
Broccoli & Cheddar Mini Frittatas
from the Biggest Loser Family Cookbook.
Cute, easy and good for you:
olive oil spray
1 cup chopped steamed broccoli
2 cups egg substitute
2 ounces shredded light Cheddar Cheese
Preheat the oven to 35o. Lightly mist 8 cups of a nonstick muffin tin with the olive oil spray.
Divide the broccoli then divide the egg substitute among the cups and bake for 7 - 9 minutes or until almost set. Then sprinkle the cheese over the tops and put back in for another 10 minutes to melt the cheese.

We have a London Broil marinating for later in the week. When its warmer we will grill it along with some vegetables!

A chunk of pork shoulder is in the crock pot, once it falls off the bone we will shred it for sandwiches.

Erin made Low Fat Creamy Mushroom Soup! We have been on a mushroom kick lately and this is soooo yummy.

We also have the parts ready for a Tuna with White Beans and Spinach Salad.

Of course we made some cookies for Valentine's Day because I love an excuse to make cookies. Just sugar cut out cookies with raspberry jam in the middle.

Back at it!

So last week I was traveling home from my mini vacation and the week before we didn't cook much since I was leaving for vacation so today we are back at it...
Tonight we are going to have baked white fish with lemon pepper seasoning on it. Side dishes will be Roasted Cauliflower and Grilled Portobello Mushrooms Stacked with Fresh Spinach and Shaved Manchego Cheese.

We also made a Spicy Beef Noodle Soup. Side salad for that day will be Maytag Wedge Salad.

Next was a Creamy Artichoke and Chicken Pasta!

We also made Chocolate Chip Cookies and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies, you know just for fun :)

Later in the week we are going to put a pork butt in the crock pot and make Mini Pulled Pork Sandwiches. And they shall be fabulous!

So - Erin is tired of winter where as I do not care one way or the other, it is half way over already though! Soon it will be 85 and humid and I will be the miserable one and the rest of you will be loving summer, bleh. Enjoy the recipes, they were all easy and yummy and pretty much not too bad for you either, minus the cookies of course.
