Tuesday was a nothing-too-exciting sort of day. Sometimes that's just fine by me.
Breakfast: Muffin in a Minute with some cream cheese. I added an extra drop of liquid sucralose and it was quite good!
Lunch: I wasn't very hungry again. One thing I've noticed with this way of eating is that I'm not as hungry as much. But I also tend to go in cycles of famished followed by a few days of not hungry. So who knows really?
I had 3 cups of salad, Green vinaigrette dressing and a piece of Chappell Hill jalapeno sausage sauteed in coconut oil. YUM.
After going head to head with Charlie trying to teach him some multiplication stuff (we both went away with our heads hurting) I decided to make some buns for dinner. These are called "Oopsie Rolls" and you can find the original recipe HERE. I love her blog and her sense of humor!!
After beating the egg white and adding the yolk mixture it'll look like this. I took a teaspoon and just lightly swirled the egg yolks until they were incorporated so the whites wouldn't fall.
I put 6 mounds onto parchment paper and baked in oven.
After they came out of the oven I sprinkled them with some onion flakes, poppy seeds, sesame seeds and a little salt.
They look so pretty! They need to set out for a while to firm up a little. I'd probably make these a day in advance next time or try adding a little flax meal to give them more body.
While cooking I walk up behind Chuck and surprise him. He says, "You scared me! I thought you were in the kitchen doing your job."
And that was the end of Chuck. He will be missed.
Speaking of Chuck, he had to go to the doctor again. Sinus infection still lurking about. Another shot, another prescription for antibiotics. Poor guy!
The burgers turned out great! They fell apart a little too easily but had a very good flavor and actually looked like bread! This is with bacon, cheese, pickles, mustard, lettuce and jalapenos. Very tasty! I used two of the rolls for buns.
See that green in the background? That's kale.
I've been reading how people say, "I had a craving for potato chips and I made these kale chips and it totally satisfied me. It's like eating chips!"
So I'm like, "Ok. I like chips. Let's do this! I need veggies anyway."
I spent some time in the kitchen making a huge batch of kale chips. Guess what. It's KALE!! Kale, people. Not chips at all.
Gave one to Chuck and he said it was like eating a crunchy fart. How the man knows what a crunchy fart tastes like I'll never know nor will I ever ask. That's his secret to keep.
Dessert: just a little chocolate puddin'
I've been cooking a lot lately. Seems like I'm in the kitchen more than usual. It does help save on grocery bill though! Eating out is expensive.
But if I hear one more comment about being in the kitchen where I belong, heads will roll. And I say that as nicely as possible. :)
I know Chuck is joking. If he weren't he'd be experiencing Hurricane Kelly. For some reason he thinks it's funny when I get angry. It's not funny, darn it!!!! *stamps foot and walks away*
