Sunday Prep Day


Sunday, July 08, 2012

I always have high hopes of prepping my week's meals every Sunday. But it generally never happens. We are rarely home, which means when we are home, it's laundry time.

But today we were home all day. I decided to cook!

I made three SparkRecipes today, and one Taste of Home recipe.

Strawberry-Banana Parfait

This was very good. Pretty easy to make, and refreshing. My bananas were too ripe, though, and overpowered the dish. I'll be making it again!

Almond Joy Protein Bars

I was very excited about this recipe, since I love Almond Joys. It's very dry and crumbly, and tastes a bit off. I might try it again with a little more honey.

Peanut Butter-Fudge Protein Bars

This one is fabulous! I highly recommend it. I expect I'll be making it a lot more.

Spicy Baked Oatmeal Pudding

I haven't tasted this one yet. But it will be my breakfast every day this week, whether it's good or not. It's very soft - not what I expected. But the flavors seem appealing.
UPDATE: It tastes good. Not too strong, so those who like bold flavors will probably want to add cinnamon. It has a creamy texture - definitely more like a pudding than a baked oatmeal. But it's high protein and low sugar...exactly what this girl needs in the am. Will be making again!

I'm nice and tired now. But I feel like I accomplished a great deal!

    I might just have to try the oatmeal one, thanks for the ideas and feedback for these recipes.

Great job with getting a prep day in!

    Awesome!! What a great idea to make your own protein bars! I am in love with Quest bars and they are expensive. I may have to try making my own sometime. Actually I'm thinking the peanut butter fudge ones would be good to have for my boys as a snack. They will think they are getting a treat but it will be good for them. :)

You did accomplish a great deal! I'm glad you got to have a day at home. :)
