LUNCHKelsey Nixon recipe which I love and is super easy as you just put everything in the slow cooker and walk away. I have been having this for lunch all week and am not yet sick of it.
SNACKNot pictured, but a cup of coffee with a splash of half & half and a homemade banana muffin in which I used apple sauce in place of vegetable oil. It was m afternoon snack and just hit the spot.
Donna Hay Modern Classics Book 1 cookbook for her classic crust recipe. I am telling you, once to see how fast and inexpensive it is to make your own crust you will never buy another overpriced one from the grocery store again. I decided to make a quiche I have never made before and before arriving home I stopped by the grocery store and grabbed some sliced ham, swiss cheese, and spinach. As I was making the crust I saw that Donna Hay had a similar recipe to the one I was making so I used her cooking time and measure of some of the ingredients. While the quiche was cooking for 40 minutes I snacked on a peach as I was getting hungry. The quiche smelled like Heaven and I had a hard time waiting for it to cool. I finally cut my sliver and had it with some romaine lettuce, parmesan cheese, and balsamic vinegar for a side salad. The meal was hearty and left me feeling satisfied. Man, who knew? I never really eat ham but I am definitely making this quiche again!
So there you have it, 1,200 calories consumed. If I can do it, anyone can do it. Making my own food and packing my own lunch has really helped curb my calories as I know what and how much goes into each piece of food. I have to say, it was a good day and I am glad I took a night off and went home to watch Dallas stomp New York!!!
