Wow, I'm gonna have to print off this thread and try some of these recipes.
The breakfast sounds AWESOME!!!!!! Did you heat it before you eat it or eat it cold. Sounds similar to this "hashbrown bake" my mom makes. YUMMY! You could pry just substitute the grits for the hash browns--tho arent potatoes good for you. sounds great. thanks for sharing. looking for good options now that I'm only home to sleep. then off to school and workOk breakfast is a bitch. Running around, trying to get dressed and ready, etc. So plan ahead, I cook a lot on the weekends and plan a night during the week, usually Wednesday for resupply.
get a glass casserole dish, spray with butter flavor PAM and preheat the oven to 300. In a mixing bowl add the following;
one carton Egg Beaters( 99% egg whites)
1 cup browned ground turkey, or chicken
6-8 oz low fat cheese shreds, or crumbles
1 cup chopped red and green peppers
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 spoonful red pepper flakes (optional)
low salt seasonings to taste
carb options, if you can stand them;
1 cup cooked rice, or
1 cup cooked grits (cheese, or bacon flavor is nice)
Place all ingredients in casserole after mixing and bake for 20 min. or until eggs are set. Cut into serving size squares and you have breakfast for at least a day or two unless you eat it all before lunch.
This is easy breezy
get one or two london broil packages at the meat counter.
These are big flat slabs of low fat protein...
set oven to 350-375 to pre-heat
place meat in glass casserole with a
tblspn Olive oil spread evenly on all surfaces of the meat.
cook 7-10 minutes per side and let cool before slicing
then add salt and pepper to taste
OR a little Worchestireshire sauce
(based on a Roman condiment called Garum that the locals came to like during Roman occupation of Britain)
Couscous is a pasta shaped like rice (made from wheat)
several varieties available-I like the Pesto and Pignoli.
All you do is add hot water and stir it up.(read the box)
Add some steamed broccoli on the side and its ..........DINNER TIME!
To add to your post, if I can..Ok...looking at a way to grill those skinless chicken breasts without sticking them?
first get the grill screaming hot, then add fresh herbs whole on the stems like
Rosemary or Lavender, Add the chicken directly onto the herbs and grill as usual.
The flavors of herbs smoked into the meat is indescribable!
You can also strip the greenery off of Rosemary and use the stems soaked in water for skewers---be careful it hurts like a b*tch if you stick your fingers!
Peaches are low GI and are great lightly grilled! place cut side down over the grill when the coals are dying down and lightly grill your dessert. Sauce them with a Brandy and cream and if you're really hard core add some vanilla protein to the cream first...about a half and half ratio of cream to brandy should do it---but don't sauce them over the grill or you'll end up like Richard Pryor!!!
Fish is also good grilled using a basket or a single thickness packaging of aluminum foil to hold it together. Herb them well (dill, lemon or tarragon)and don't overcook it. 1-2 minutes per side on a one inch fillet is plenty. Firm meaty fish steaks like tuna and shark do very well.
happy grilling by the fire to all...
Un 'tamal'..my mom makes em with corn-meal and chicken, or beef, or pork.. Or plain, with a side of pork.. Good thing I bought the house next to my mothers..!Lots of Latin groceries here and also Southeast Asian ones will carry banana leaves. You can fold 'em up to make a cooking pocket with the spices and sides you want and then eat off them like paper plates when they're done. You can cut strip off the ends to tie them with, but it's a good idea to have one of those wicker plate holders that you put paper plates in under them. safer that way if it's hot or you poke a hole in it.
i like to put a spoonful of cooked rice, some green, red and orange peppers or other colorful vegetables in with the chicken or fish. (keep the filets on the thin side and you'll get even cooking and crisp tender veggies) It's
good way to impress the hell out of a date too.
hey go with a theme and use S. American flavors with shrimp fish or chicken and a frosty Corona, or Margarita.
Equal parts of fine Tequila Anejo, Triple sec and fresh lime juice.
Go ahead....make her day!!!
She'll make your night
