FroYo Sunday and Frittata Recipe
It’s Monday, my most favorite day of the week. You all know I’m kidding, but I will do my best to stay positive if you promise to try and do the same. I am meeting my mom and possibly dad for lunch during my break from work, so that is something fun I get to look forward to!
Dana and I carried out our normal Sunday morning routine which consisted of coupon cutting while eating breakfast, and then going grocery shopping. We already had quite a few groceries but still needed a few things like PEANUT BUTTER!
We then got busy on tackling two of the worst house cleaning jobs: bathroom and kitchen. We decided we’d spruce up and de-clutter both of these rooms. And much to my relief, I came across unclutterer, and got some ideas on how to begin. We divided and conquered with Dana taking the bathroom (bless is heart) and I took the kitchen. We have stainless steel appliances in the kitchen and although they are beautiful to look at, they are a pain in the neck to keep clean. But nevertheless, they are clean right now, so we will enjoy it for a short while. It feels real good to have both of those rooms cleaned.
Mid-morning, I snacked on a bunch of Special K Sea Salt Cracker Chips and then I made myself a PB2 and jelly open face sandwich on spelt bread.
Then we were out the door to visit with mom and dad. I also snacked on some chips there, but that time it was Harvest Cheddar Sun Chips. After mom and dad’s we headed to Dana’s parent’s place to visit over there for a while, and then we made our way home.
I was starving when we got home so I made myself a light (early) dinner at 4:50. Lower sodium turkey deli meat wrapped around mozzarella string cheese.
Plus some more Special K chips (I am LOVING chips today apparently) and hummus.
I ended with a bowl of cooked carrots with a little sugar.
At least I thought that was the end, but no. Dana and I made our way to a local frozen yogurt shop for a special Sunday treat. Come to think of it, we had frozen yogurt last Sunday too. This could be a nice little tradition we have started. 🙂 FroYo Sunday.
I chose cookie monster frozen yogurt with brownie pieces, cookie dough, snickers, sprinkles, and whipped cream. What a great way to end the weekend.
I had a few requests for the frittata recipe that I had made the other day with my first frittata ever. I thought I would share it with everybody in case anyone else was interested. I used this recipe as a guide since it was my first time. I wanted to make sure I got the proportions and baking time right and such. I did make some adjustments to the recipe and put my own spin on it. I can now consider it my frittata recipe.
Melanie’s First Frittata: Serves 2-4 people
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced
- 2 cups mushrooms, sliced
- 1-10 oz package frozen spinach, thawed and drained well
- 2 large eggs
- 4 large egg whites
- 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- Salt and Pepper
- Cilantro or other fresh herbs (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350°
- In an oven-safe skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat on the stove top
- Add onion; allow to cook down for 2 minutes
- Add mushrooms; allow to cook for 1 minute; lastly add spinach
- In a medium bowl, combine eggs, egg whites, nutritional yeast, and salt and pepper; mix well
- Remove skillet from heat and add spinach mixture into egg bowl
- Pour entire mixture back into skillet, sprinkle with cheese, and place in oven; bake for 25 minutes*
- Remove frittata from pan carefully and cut into 4 triangles. Garnish with fresh herbs and salsa or your favorite egg accompaniment (I love ketchup) and enjoy
*Baking time may vary. Keep an eye on the skillet and watch for melty cheese and a firm egg bake.
Dana and I finished this off ourselves for dinner, but it could be split between four people and served with a big fruit salad and some fresh-baked whole grain rolls for a more well-rounded meal. I enjoyed making my first ever frittata. It was actually extremely easy and turned out great.
Have a happy day! I am getting back on the workout wagon this week….I have fallen off slightly. Yikes!
