Throughout this fertility journey, no matter how much life has thrown at me, I will remember my blessings & affirmations each day.

Breakfast on the go

EGG MUFFINS

I adapted this recipe from Kalyn’s Kitchen Blog to suit what I had in the fridge. I am all about using what you have around your kitchen because its a great way to not be wasteful. {See the bag of peppers & onions?}

I used 6 eggs, but you can also use 12. 6 eggs will produce 6-9 muffins. Beat your eggs, add spices (i used pepper & salt only). Chop your veggies you choose to include and layer them in the bottom on your lined cups. Green Onions are suggested, I chose onion + pepper in a thin layer. Pour your egg mixture carefully into the cups, filling them 2/3 full. Sprinkle a cheese of your choice (optional) on top of the mixture. I suggest a saltier cheese like cheddar. Feta + Spinach would also make a great combo!

Bake these bad boys at 375 degrees for 25-35 minutes until they’re puffy & golden. Let them cool, then bag them up. 2 muffins per bag is the perfect, healthy breakfast serving.

Quickie: dinner menu

Dinner tonight is thanks to Pinterest: a blog called MMM…Cafe

Follow that link for the recipe instructions. It called Honey Sauced Chicken or Crockpot Honey Chicken. SUPER EASY.

I served this dish with a salad & long grained rice cooked in chicken broth with a little grated parmesan stirred in while cooking. The dish is Asian-inspired & moist. I chose not to cut up my boneless, skinless chicken breast tenderloins & feel this worked better. I used 5 tenderloin for 2 people. I also substituted a few drops of hot sauce for the crushed red pepper flakes.

Definitely a thumbs up from my hubby and myself. I will make this again.

A little snack

ooey gooey

Yes, I have a cheese addiction. But this recipe uses Weight Watcher string cheese so its ok! Right?

I used 3 string cheese sticks cut in half & placed them in the freezer until frozen. Then, you dip each stick into flour, egg wash, then a breadcrumb or Panko mixture….then back in the freezer. The breadcrumb coating I used was: Italian breadcrumbs, a little Italian seasoning, & a little Creole seasoning (thanks Alicia).  You could use an Italian breadcrumb + panko mixture with parsley also.

Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Line your baking sheet with aluminum foil & spray lightly with a cooking spray.  Once the sticks are frozen (doesn’t take long), place them on the baking sheet and spray the tops lightly with a smidge more spray. Let ’em bake for 4-5, turn them, cook for another 4-5 minutes. Keep an eye on them before they start to ooze cheese (as mine did).

I ate all 6!

What’s for dinner?

Twist on a grilled cheese

I decided to try a Pinterest recipe again tonight. I am cheese-a-holic so of course this was right up my alley. I chose swiss cheese & rye bread, and omitted the pesto spread. Yum yum! I want another one!
