It’s been a long time since I participated in a What I Ate Wednesday with Jenn at Peas and Crayons…probably because I’m extremely undedicated to taking photos of my food. It may also have something to do with the fact that I really have no idea what I ate for the past month…I remember some black bean cakes…and some salads…and one poutine…but mostly it’s just a blur.
My meal planning has been completely out of whack for the past few weeks because I haven’t been home very much. While it’s awesome to know none of the dishes in the sink are mine, it’s not so awesome to realize the fridge is completely empty when you come back to reality and realize you have to get back to real life eventually.
So last night I did what I do best – I made a grocery list. First, I picked out a few recipes I thought I could make in advance and throw in the fridge to eventually be reheated. Then I filled in my other staples.
Last night I got down to business and made three recipes.
Breakfast Frittatas (inspired by Liz):
1/2 cup milk
salt and pepper
zucchini, red and green peppers
Mix ‘em all together and pour into a muffin tin. Bake for 30 minutes. Add cheese if you want towards the end.
Serve to boyfriend in the morning when he sleeps in and needs something microwaved fast.
Zucchini Boats (inspired by this pin):
Scoop seeds out of zucchini
Spray with olive oil spray
Sprinkle with a bit of garlic and S&P
Add halved grape tomatoes
Bake for 30 mins, then add cheese if you’d like and broil.
And last but not least…
Black Bean Enchiladas
I ended up just making the filling…it’s in the fridge waiting to be assembled into enchiladas when I get the energy to do it. I got the recipe from Can You Stay For Dinner? so go here to check it out.
And that’s some of the food I prepared last night to eat today. It’s good to be back – both as a grocery shopper, and a What I Ate Wednesday participant!
