Typically, I try to keep my fruits and veggies on the fresh side. However, when I got back in town from my Vegas vacation the fridge was looking bare, so the next stop was the freezer.
I always keep a few bags of frozen broccoli on hand. Although I prefer fresh, I never have an excuse for not having a veggie with lunch or dinner.
Breakfast was a broccoli and cheese omelet.
I just heated up the frozen broccoli in the skillet for about 5 minutes before adding the eggs. This flavor combo was delish – a keeper for sure.
Lunch also featured frozen broccoli and my new favorite pantry staple. Next time you are at Trader Joe’s, do yourself a favor and pick up a few of these packets to keep in cases where a quick meal is needed.
While digging through the freezer, I found some breaded fish-o-fillet that won the easiest dinner contest, along with a can of lima beans.
Eating a fish sandwich always makes me think of when I first started dating Dan. He thought it was hilarious to ask me to go to dinner by saying, “I’ll buy you a fish sandwich.”
Other produce I think are great to always have in the freezer -corn, chopped spinach, cauliflower, berries, pineapple, peaches, stir fry mixes. Not so good -frozen green beans and brussel sprouts. For those I either go fresh or go with something else. What is a must have in your freezer? Anything else I should give a try?
Between breakfast and lunch I snacked on the only fresh find still in my house. an about to go bad pineapple.
I had a protein muffin for a light afternoon snack. In a bowl I mixed together 2 tbs of whole wheat flour, 2 egg whites, 3 tbs of applesauce, 1/2 tsp of baking powder, and some coffee grinder seasonings and stuck it in the microwave for 3 minutes. Delish.
I was so tired yesterday from traveling back home – we rolled in our driveway at about 3 in the morning. I kept on thinking I would get a run in sometime, but before I knew it the day was over and I was asleep- at around 7:30 PM. I will have to make up the missing run either tonight or tomorrow.
