While my husbands been away I've been having a little fun playing with my food. There's been a little personal challenge going on around here and it's all about food. Sometimes when he's gone it doesn't seem like it's worthwhile to do much cooking just for little ole me. So, in those times I often heat up a lot of canned soup, stop at Wendy's, Lean Cuisine, chicken potpie . . . You get the drift. But, I must admit I really don't like to eat like that.
So, this time I made a deal with myself that instead of doing that I would take something out of the freezer or pantry and brainstorm on ideas of how I could turn it into a delicious meal for one. I tell you I've been surprised by the good results I've gotten and in the process the freezer is getting better organized and I'm not wasting money on going out to eat. What started out as my little game has turned into a new way to look at meal preparation.
Take this morning, for instance. I had a lot of strawberries and several overripe bananas on hand. After a quick Internet search I decided to try out a new recipe for Strawberry-Banana Muffins. My son stopped in this morning and we both loved these muffins. If you'd like the recipe you can find it here.
While my son was here he brought my Easter boxes down from the attic for me. To show my appreciation I thought a strawberry smoothie was in order. Oh goodie I get to play with food again!!
I appreciate your kind comments on my back problem. It is almost back to normal.
Wishing you a wonderful week!!
