Do you have a kitchen or cooking secret that saves time, calories or clean up?
I am adding them practically in every dish they like.
My children go crazy from stuffed cannelloni with minced meat.
Well it is one part minced meat and 3 parts of boiled veggies like carrots e.t.c. passed first from blender and then added in the recipe...It works!
Great source of a lot of nutrients and not too high in calories if not covered with brown sugar, butter, etc. I bake mine and use a wedge of laughing cow cheese on a half of a baked potato. Yummy!!
At the beginning of the week, I wash & tear up my romaine, shred carrots, dice celery & other vegetables. Dry & put in a large paper-towel lined bowl with lid. It's very easy to pick out what you need for a salad every night - just add sliced tomatoes,
leave the peels on your potatos when you mash them. they are full of valuable vitamins and minerals and a wonderful source of potassium. they give texture to the mashed spuds, too!! I have never had anyone complain about this!!
My favorite butcher shop will run specials on ground beef and bone/skin-less chicken breast in 10# bulk.
We baked peanut butter, sugar cookies, cinnamon buns, large biscuits and I had to have at least 1/2 of each thing. I stayed close to my food intake anyway.
When making your own Greek salad use English cucumbers instead of field cucumbers. Field cucumbers have a bitter skin and you'd have to peel it before adding it to your Greek salad.
I have jotted down a months worth of breakfasts and all I have to do to post is to go back to that date and forward a similar breakfast to the current day. SPARK has given us this feature and I use it daily to save time on my food posting.
When your bananas get to brown and you don't have time to use them don't throw them away. Just put them in the freezer. i don't even put them in a bag I just set them in there. When you want to make muffins or bread just defrost in microwave. Delicious. They are white in the inside amazing!
