Food We Eat

Breakfast: I'm still working on eating a big breakfast.  I usually have coffee when I first wake up and then eat around 9
 My new favorite thing to eat is Greek Yogurt.  I buy the plain no fat version and top it with fresh fruit, honey and homemade granola.  
 I'm a sucker for a poached egg- top it with a fresh juicy tomato and I'm in heaven. 
Another 'new' favorite in our house- adding bananas to our pancakes. 
I'm the only person in my house who prefers poached eggs so we eat a lot of scrambled. 

 Fish cakes with homemade Nova Scotia 'Chow' made by Dr. J's grandmother and sauteed veggies and  tomatoes.
 Salmon melt made with leftovers
Lunch salad with leftover quinoa
 Homemade sushi- Easiest last minute meal to make if you have some fresh veggies and frozen shrimp
 Leftover meal- make rice into fried rice, add some frozen  veggie, scramble an egg and top with seaweed.

A kids favorite around here-
Chicken cutlet, broccoli and potato 'chips'

 Bean fajita- another easy 'use what you have' meal
  Mushroom/spinach pie
made with homemade bread crumbs 
 I made my first whole BBQ Chicken- It was not nearly as difficult as I thought it would be- turned out amazing- No after photo-
Salmon, peppers and asparagus- Easy dinner to make for a group. 
Ribs, beer and a Texas Twister- at a Rib Festival 
Lobster/Angus beef burger- The Surf and Turf-
  Authentic Chinese- Spicy and no fortune cookie
Mexican
What have you been eating?

where is my invite?!?! - i wanna come over to eat at ur place!!!! - i eat pretty healthy, haven't ate pasta in god knows how long - i've been fighting weight gain due to meds and it's been hell - so it's been LOTS of veggies, organic meats, no carbs, few grains, little dairy, lots of fresh seafood - works for me, but Joe has his cabinet of goodies for himself (ie cookies, chips, ect)

What's your secret for a perfect poached egg? I haven't been able to nail it yet, but I love them!

Your food look so delicious that they are making me hungry!!! And it's awesome that your boys share the same interest, one less headache for you. I remembered how my siblings and I will drive my mom crazy when we all complain to her all at once LOL

Most of that I would not eat. I'm annoyingly picky.

But my formerly tube fed kid? He'd eat all of it.

Maybe You'll Enjoy These Too...
