So I’m kind of loving the food I have to share today. With the snow storm this past weekend I had a bit more free time to focus on preparing meals and enjoying them too. I love being able to spend time in the kitchen with no pressure to rush. I found myself leaving the dirty dishes in the sink for a bit longer than I normally do over the weekend. With nowhere to be I felt like I had all the time in the world to clean up!
A few weekends ago Michael and I went out to breakfast, he ordered a frittata. It was so good and I have been wanting to make my own for weeks. When grocery shopping before the storm I made sure to get us lots of veggies to make our own frittata. I also picked up some chicken sausage to add to the frittata for some extra protein. I ended up adding chicken sausage, tomato, spinach and 2 eggs with feta cheese.
It was so so good and kept full through a full day of shoveling!
I’ve been going for leftovers a lot lately and since Michael and I agreed to make an effort to clean out the fridge this week that is exactly what I have! Leftover rice with chicken sausage, spinach and asparagus. It was simple and delicious.
I’ve also been obsessed with Hint water. I love that it has no sugars, or sweeteners and is vegan. Plus, it’s just down right delicious! The blackberry is definitely my favorite but I’m also a big fan of the Mango-Grapefruit. The flavoring is just enough but never over powering.
For an afternoon snack I had a Quaker Chewy Granola Bar. I had the chocolate peanut butter with 25% less sugar. It’s just enough to keep me full until dinner!
We didn’t know what Saturday would bring for us with the storm. We had plans to go to dinner but just to be safe I bought some thin-sliced chicken and asparagus. Michael and I always joke that I just buy things that sound good to me at the grocery store. I never really have a plan for things but lucky for me he always comes up with a great dinner no matter what ingredients I throw at him.
We ended up pan frying the chicken, sauteing the asparagus with lemon and then combining it all with some spaghetti and a aglio olio sauce. We topped it off with some fresh parmesan and a good bottle of white wine. It was simple and delicious!
What is better than wine and pasta on a cold snowy night?!
