What happened? I blacked out. All of the sudden I woke up and I had made all sorts of delicious dishes. I would say that stay-at-home Sunday was a success. Here are the enjoyable and healthy treasures that I whipped up today.
Mashed cauliflower (above): Tastes like mashed potatoes, but without the carbs. Cauliflower and garlic steamed with some seasoning and Greek yogurt. I heart food processors.
Parmesan zucchini: Zucchini, olive oil, seasoning, and fresh grated parmesan. Summer veggies rejoice!
|Meatloaf in a cup|
Meatloaf cups: Rachael Ray told me I was supposed to frost my meat muffins with mashed potatoes, but I went rogue. Cauliflower was a better choice to try today.
|Fennel and tomato salad|
Fennel and tomato salad: This one is just for me since the hubs doesn't really like any of these ingredients. This is what I call, "eating down the fridge." I was inspired by a "Chopped" episode where they used basic ingredients in their baskets that other people might throw away.
Watermelon cupcakes: These cupcakes are more for novelty than flavor, and are not watermelon flavored (that could get weird) but just look like watermelons. White cake, food coloring, and mini chocolate chips. I felt it was time to pay back the ladies at work that have basically fed me for two weeks straight.
I don't think I have cooked that much in a full day ever. In full disclosure, I have to give credit to the hubs for (1) mixing the meatloaf mix seeing as I would rather go hungry than touch ground meat, (2) cleaning the entire kitchen and dishes, twice, and (3) being open minded to eating the food that I make, which often does not end well. Luckily, they all turned out well and we didn't have to use the emergency frozen pizza that I always keep on hand.
