Today it has been so chilly and raw. What better way to warm up than hang out by a nice warm oven.
D and I whipped up a batch of White Chip Chocolate Cookies – recipe on the back of the chip bag.
These were per D’s request – he loves white chocolate. We made them a bit on the monstrous side – I tend to usually make cookies much smaller. He wanted big ones – these did not disappoint.
Before we were up to our elbows in cookie batter we had lunch.
I had my new favorite cottage cheese, cinnamon, apple and veggie combo - this time with a zucchini. It was delish!
I also had 2 pieces of toasty bread topped with peanut butter and apple butter. On the side I ate the rest of the apple that I did not throw into the veggie/fruit bowl.
For Charlie’s dinner tonight, I was on a mission to create a dish that would leave some leftovers. I opted for an eggy dish.
I started by grating a peeled sweet potato.
The rest of the ingredients were pretty simple – onion, 6 eggs and shredded cheese. I also used salt, pepper, oregano and thyme to season the eggs.
I coated an oven proof skillet with olive oil and cooked the onion and sweet potato till soft. I then pressed the mixture into the skillet to form a crust and let it cook for a few more minutes to sort of mold into the shape of the pan.
In a medium bowl I mixed the eggs and the seasoning. I then poured the egg mix over the “crust” and popped it into a 375 degree oven until the eggs set up and I could tell they were no longer runny. I added a little shredded cheddar cheese to the top and then put the pan back in the oven under the broiler to melt the cheese.
It was a winner and there is 2 pieces left for his dinner tomorrow. We have some plans tomorrow night so an easy dinner will be beneficial.
I am no longer eating sweet potatoes or onions as they leave my stomach in utter discomfort so I made myself a belly friendly meal.
I had a plate of “safe” veggies (zucchini and summer squash) and a pear.
I also had an english muffin with swiss cheese, sunflower seed butter & apple butter.
Tonight I am definitely sticking my face in my book. I have not been able to sit and read for a few days now and I am dying to know what happens. First I need to get my little sweet tart tucked in, then it will be Twilight time.
I hope you have a great night.
