Cooking SP Recipes

Monday, December 21, 2009

After I got done shoveling yesterday and my son fell asleep on the couch (he's sick the poor thing emoticon), I decided to stop myself from sitting around and eating all afternoon I would cook everything in my house so I would have healthy things all ready to eat for the rest of the week.

Here is what I made:

For Breakfast,
Coach Nicole's Mini Vegetable Frittatas

For Lunch,
Clean Eating Mag Minestrone Soup

For Dinner,
SP_Stepf's Baked Veggie Burritos

I really am enjoying cooking and trying all kinds of new healthy recipes that I find on this site. They all came out great and will be regular meals each month. The Frittatas were so easy (although the recipe says to cook for 15 min, mine took about 30 min) and delicious this morning (only 71 calories a serving!!!)

The soup I had made before and is very filling and tasty. Just what is needed for cold winter days and nights.

The burritos were a surprise. I was not expecting to like them because it sounded kind of weird to me to have sweet potatoes and salsa, not to mention wrapping them in a wonton wrapper, but this is definitely a new favorite - I LOVED THEM!!! I can't wait to eat more of them tonight and then try them next week with some different veggies in them since I still have some wrappers left over.

I highly recommend using SparkRecipes to look for some new meals if you've never browsed through it or if you haven't done it in awhile. There are some delicious and easy recipes posted on here - and all for free!! No need to buy a cookbook.

I will try to do a big batch of cooking every Sunday because it seems to work out really well for the rest of the busy work week and it also occupies my time on Sunday doing something I enjoy - cooking! I just wish my 2yr old wold eat some of these things but being 2, he is typically a picky eater. Maybe with time, he will eventually try some of these creations.
