Hey Everyone, day two here of What I Ate. Aren’t y’all excited? I know you are! This post is going to be short and sweet because I am TIRED (I realize it’s only 8:15).
For breakfast I made a new pancake recipe from Pioneer Woman. LOVE HER. It is called Edna Mae’s Sour Cream Pancakes. They are in her first cookbook. I highly recommend getting either of her cookbooks. She knows how to make delicious stuff. I have never made sour cream pancakes before but I had some sour cream that needed to be used. The recipe only called for 7 tablespoons of flour. Crazy huh? They were light, delicate, and yummy.
For lunch we picked up some Firehouse Subs on the way home from church. I am a sucker for meatball subs. Always have been and probably always will be. LOVE them. So that’s what I ate. And an apple.
For dinner I made these asian lettuce wraps with roasted carrots. I forgot to take a picture until I was almost done eating. I did get one though, my mom has said before that she doesn’t like it when I write a blog post without a picture, so here it is. My half eaten plate.
Sometimes the lettuce falls apart hence the amount of “stuffing” on the side. I am not going to type up the recipe but I will send you to the link. This blogger is one of my favorites. I love her cooking, she usually uses unprocessed products but makes filling meals which is what this house needs. I really try to cook with unprocessed foods but a salad every night is not going to cut it here! So her website is a great resource for me. Her site is called Mel’s Kitchen Cafe. Check it out, she posts every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The only thing I did different from from her recipe was that instead of ground chicken I used ground turkey. Also, I just roasted some carrots for about 30 minutes at 40 degrees with olive oil, a champagne vinegar, salt and pepper. Easy peasy. Yummy and healthy. Enjoy!!
Tomorrow I probably won’t post because for dinner I have a date scheduled with my little lady and then bible study after that. Maybe on Tuesday you will get a post but I won’t be cooking tomorrow! Yay! I love to cook but I love a break too.
